Going from the Rx to MW is like going from chaos to cosmos. At MW the implicate order is explicated; at the Rx it is involuted.
"To understand the implicate order that flows through life is to begin to yield to the flow of this order as it leads from small, enclosed patterns of intellectual and emotional contraction to ever-expanding and more inclusive patterns of widom and enlightenment."--Paul Muller-Ortega
Looks to me like we are out for the day.
From Infopop: "Right now our DBA is checking into a recent slowdown in processing the last of the larger sites. This is delaying the re-opening of the forums. Our best estimate is for mid-day Pacific time [GMT-700] before any sites start coming back online.
We apologize for this added delay to the upgrade process and will keep this forum updated with more detailed estimates.
Again, we thank you for your patience so far and ask that you let your community members know what is happening.

THANK YOU for the dictionary (vocabulary) dissertation. However, the salvo was offmark.
In particular, the troublesome words were (explicated) and (involuted). I THINK I know the meaning but a trip to the dictionary was in order.....
Thanks again Mr. Chad. If you want to post the meanings to help me here, be my guest, it will be appreciated........
