Hi Gael,

The haiku train seems locked except for admins and moderators.  You didn't press anything you shouldn't have? ;-)

Alan

Laura Sherman

Thanks to our super hero, Dave, we are now unlocked!  I didn't know this feature was even there.  I followed his very precise directions to unlock this topic again.

Don Baird

YaY!  Thanks!  Ok, lets get some haijin to move this train along!!!
