Sorry for the inability to access the forum over the last couple of day folks.  Issues with hosting...and to say anymore will probably offend your sensitive eyes/ears etc... >:D.

And, at a stoke, the withdrawal symptoms begin to fade into the background ...

Thanks for sorting out the hosting! Anyone who has ever run a website knows just how sensitive, concerned, and caring those folks can be  :P

Wonderful news  :-*  had me and possibly hundreds of others seriously worried there for a moment. There is no other forum like this out there and would be a sad day for modelling if we lose you.

Whew! I was wondering, but discovered I no longer had any contact e-mails. Glad it is patched up.

As I grew up on a farm in Eastern Canada, but have lived and worked in Northeast Alberta for the last 40 years, I can't imagine anything you might say that would offend me. You've never heard my Alberta farmgirl wife yell at my after I've peed her off. Now, that language is crude and offensive!

Good to see you back!

BTS is back  :smiley:  :smiley:  :smiley:

Was concerned BTS got shutdown because someone released dossier on our mutual collusion to violate model kits by ignoring direction sheets to do unnatural non OOB kit-bashing.

One time, when I was clearing a jam on my .50 M2 I looked down to see my gunner laughing at me from inside the turret.

1) He said I was using curses he'd never heard before in his life

and

2) My headphones were switched to the tower intercom.

True story.

So share your sentiments.

Not out of the woods yet I'm afraid. The site is extremely slow this morning, some threads just wouldn't open up, like the C-27 thread. Opening my link to the forum and opening the page took over a minute too.
Yesterday however once the announcement was made 'we're back' and I tried to get on, it was super quick --

I agree - it was fast last night, this morning it's very slow... it feels like it's going to go down again.

That wouldn't have been a hosting issue ... just the usual, top-notch Leonardo product support  :smiley:
