    No problems right now. And a quick glance around various forums doesn't show any unusual no-post periods (2.5 hours between posts in Omni, but that timeframe had posts in PR, United and AC).

    the servers must not be able to handle the reduced traffic load.

    Yes, I'm finding that I am spending less and less time over there and more and more here.
    And enjoying it a lot more! [​IMG]

    All my usual suspects seem to be here so it is a bit boring there now. They have no 'likes' so I am always in doubt about my sociability. People ar less social so I feel distanced over there. Besides I like you guys.

    I misread that. I thought you had said that Punki and I had bought out FT. [​IMG]

    You and Punki bought FT? Why, then, are you posting here?

    FT seems to be back up. At least I haven't encountered problems accessing it just now.

    Hope nothing ever happens to that site. [​IMG] I still use it as a huge database.

    Oh, it'll never completely go away; it just has occasional hiccups. And the data is backed up very often, so should some form of corruption kill something, the most that would be lost is probably the last several hours of posts (certainly not more than a day).

    FT database hiccuped tonight about two hours ago for a short while but was back up when I checked again an hour ago.

    I go over to check on a few things since some threads are still waaay more complete there. But, I'm self-imposed a no-posting rule, which I break only when I feel the need to correct a factual error in another posting. Other than that, I'm limiting my contributions to MP.
