Holy Balls....that last hacker almost kicked my ass. With the help of our host we finally figured out how to fix it. I had to roll the version of the softwares back and then bring it current. I believe we made the necessary precautions to stop this from happening again. Sorry for the inconvenience. The restore was from January so we did lose a month and a half of posts but that is better than what it would have if I didn't back up the site! Please let me know if there are any problems. I am expecting some...hopefully they are not serious.

Post on my fellow VH fanatics!!

The other boards just paled in comparison to this one, man.

I tried 'em all, though i only joined the R. army.
I've been out of the VH loop for weeks now, as a result.
I have no idea whats going on...

Saw a recent interview with Roth on youtube, though.
He looked & sounded great, so im sure things are in control.

Actually, ICM gave me the heads up on saturday night.

We have missed a lot, especially that dirty little tome by Val Bertanelli.
That book really should have been called, "my life with Edward Van Halen."

Hey look, i'm already off topic!

Very true, KB.

I got so incredibly bored on these other VH sites, seemed like the same person posting over & over again.
There is variation at the Army, but it's running very slow.

This site just has the right amount of posts & people.
Plus the gear talk is always fun & sometimes controversial.

Didn't realize it's been 2 months--and the "Quick Reply" button still don't work--ah well--one thing at a time.

Van Halen's also been off a couple months.

Coincidence?

I think NOT!!

I got to post some tech stuff, but other then that, snoozeville.

Why are these cyber terrorists obsessed with VH boards, of all things?

Why not a Miley Cyrus board or a Britney spears forum?
Isn't that shit more popular than old dinosaurs like us & VH?
I don't get it.

The E-mail service doesn't work and the quick reply doesn't work. Besides that, I don't see anything wrong.

"LOOK AT ALL THE PEOPLE HERE TONIGHT..."

man oh man, I'm glad to see the site is back. I too, have been somewhat disappeared as I have had the duties of a new job with very little time for internet entertainment and the purchase of a new house and last but not least, a new dog that my wife and I adopted, Ginger. anyway, I decided I simply gotta have my CVH fix almost as much as the 6-pack, so I will be checking in often and adding my comments, complaints, humor, bally-hoo, opinions, and general smart assed remarks!

glad you're all back, got nuthin but love for ya all!

Actually, my brother in law's parents had a lab with a red coat, and yup, she was called 'ginger.'
No joke.

A grungy little Lhasa Apso that we got from a rescue three weeks ago. We also have Charlie, a Shi-zhu/Poodle mix with the heart of a pitbull. my wife just has an uncanny ability with animals. she's rescued both of these little dogs who were just a mess and now they're doing great. we've had Charlie for a little over a year and we got Ginger to keep him company. they have three hour wrestling matches that are just hilarious to watch.

Thanks VH freak for your hard work to get it up and running I never ever thought this site was ever going to get fixed but by a mircale it's up and running. I 've been out of the loop about what is happening with Van Halen.I haven't read much lately about VH. All i know is their back on tour and kicking ass.:101::101:

VH Freak, you are the MAN!! Thank you so much for your hard work to get this site back up and running! I remember when I tried to sign on about two months ago all that came up was a massive skull picture and a lot of arabic writing and some big text that said something about the G-J Team. Pissed me off.

Anyway, during these last coupla months I started posting on a completely different forum, not even VH-related. Now it looks like I'll be splitting time

Thank the gods that this hallowed site is back! There seems to be a dearth of TRUE Van Halen sites out there; some blasphemous assholes would go so far as to attempt to extol the virtues of Van Hagar. Heavens forfend! Van Hagar was merely tolerated; for the SERIOUS connoseur, only David Lee Roth-led Van Halen will EVER do...PEACE.
