1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Well, that was the running joke in the maternity ward. He was born about 1/4 mile past the 79th street exit on the Henry Hudson parkway, so we were thinking of Henry, at least for a middle name. But I think it might just remain a nickname in the end. I was driving my wife's Honda Civic, so I don't think either of those are in the running.

    In hindsight, what makes this whole thing all the more unbelievable is that I was driving through am traffic in NYC. But then again, I think New Yorkers are generally used to highly aggressive driving.


    I kinda like Hudson...(Hud is one of my fave films)

    Congratulations!

    but just for anyone listening:

    Now I just start cutting people off and making illegal turns, driving the wrong way up one way streets, blasting my horn. I didn't care. Whatever it took to get to the hospital in the shortest amount of time. I drive up a one way street the wrong way leading to the emergency bay and thank God there were EMT's hanging out right there, looking at me like "WTF is this clown doing?"

    this is where you went wrong. Your baby was delivered. You could've killed anyone in a car crash here. Your baby was fine and well, the best thing to do would be to drive safely to the hospital or call an ambulance.

    Fantastic story and congratulations!

    My wife's due with our 2nd in a week and her first was a very fast delivery, so I'm nervous we're going to have a similar scenario. Dr. agreed to induce 2 days before due date for the same reasoning if we don't have him before then.

    Again, congratulations. Frickin awesome!

    Congrats! Great story

    Were you heading to Roosevelt (St. Lukes)?

    There's a fine line between aggressive and reckless/dangerous driving. I was riding the edge of that line. I see your point obviously, but I defy you to be in the same situation and not do whatever it takes. Besides, we only had a few blocks to go once off the parkway and I knew the quickest route, so stopping for an ambulance would have been retarded as it would have taken way longer, and driving safely would have been unbearable. In the end instinct took over and I just reacted. It was primal. I probably would have driven over a traffic cop if it meant getting to the hospital quicker. Also, it was our first, so next time I'll know to hit the Dunkin' Donuts drive thru on the way. [​IMG]
