Count me in too.
Seems to me that there should be an "N" between Fork and Snatch....

Thanks,

Well, we will re-open the registration page as soon as we can be sure the database isn't losing anybody.
When I look at the results & madam looks at the results, we see different results.
We could proceed & hope for the best but that wouldn't be very fair.
This didn't show up when we tested it, of course.

I am very sorry for the delay.

Okay, I called the Chief Twidget in to look over the problem. I think he solved the mystery.
Please register now if you haven't already.

Ron, you are in but there reason I started calling it the forksnatch was the first pump was so fast that it jerked the forks or the cherry picker all the away up in about 4 seconds; I posted, "Guys, this is not a forklift - it's a forksnatch!" So I decided I liked the distinction because nobody else has one. Or if they do, they don't talk about it.
Even though the new pump slowed it down, the name stuck.

Good luck, Harve. Register now, please so we will have your address in case you do.

Nope, the problem was pretty simple; there are 2 programs that can be involved when we look at the database results. One of them will generously save the data it opened when it is closed. This means that if someone new registers while that program is opened, then it will erase the new data when it saves the old data.
So anyway, now we know how to avoid that - thanks again to markttu.
If worse comes to worse, we could always turn it into an email registration but I hope to avoid that.

Well, You are on the list but that's a bit like trying to be sure you haven't forgot anything?
But we will work up a list and you guys can confirm yourselves.
We know of 4 that got erased and I will pmail them to re-register.
Anyone who registered between 11am & 1 pm CST could have been erased.
If that's when you registered, you are welcome to re-register too.
We can deal with a few duplications.

Cutter,
The name just reminded me of a comment from a friend about my ex-wife after my 2nd divorce. (sorry Mx). That's what she did to all my property, everything.

Now that I think about it I don't think that I could wear this hat...Please pull my name from the drawing. Good Luck to everyone else and thanks for the chance.

As for the original hydraulic pump, maybe "Clean and Jerk" would have fit.

CaptRon
