    Default Was the trader offline?

    Was it just me, or did MapleTrader go down for a while? Who would want to attack such a nice site! Or did someone trip over the cord, LOL
    2016: First year. Homemade evaporator out of little woodburning stove with steam tray pans. 6 taps on buckets. 1.1 galls syrup
    2017: Same little homemade evaporator, but souped up. Still 2 steam tray pans. 15 taps on buckets. 4.5 galls syrup.
    2018: Same setup. Limited time (New baby!) Downsized to 12 taps and short season. 2.2 gallons syrup.
    2019: Still very limited time, with a one-year-old. Downsized even further to 7 taps and a short season. 1.8 gallons syrup

    Well when the sap runs like crazy here I tend to have too much stuff turned on at once and pop some fuses. Maybe someone turned one too many appliances on and killed the site!

    I typically blow a fuse on the stove when I have 4 pots of near-done syrup going at once and the temp soars.
    This year I also discovered that having an 1800W induction plate, several lights, bathroom exhaust fan, and heat mat for the snake tank all going at once is too much on the circuit when the sump pump kicks on. Trying to decipher Dad's handwriting and poor labeling of the electrical panel at midnight is not much fun.

    someone unplugged the server cause they needed the outlet for their RO. They are done now so it's ok.
