    yep, there was a thread over the last couple days about possible switching hosting companies or something like that due to the forums going offline alot and overall crappy service. i hope they get it fixed, they seem to have alot of issues reliability wise

    Its sofware related not host.

    As one who admins a sight related to my line of work the phpbb script is notorius for bugs when setting up especially when transfering earlier versions over to the newer stuff to combat spam bots.

    Since ours is not a pay membership site we had "volunteer techs" who helped out. Which seemed to make it worse. FSN has that same problem.

    It was only when we hired a real IT guy did the problems get straightened out. I suspect FSN will have problems until they do the same.

    I've learned real fast 95% of the so called IT guys who spout off a bunch of code phrases have no clue.

    Too bad its one of the few firearm sites that allows fairly free thinking.

    Just say Moe.

    It'll be back.
    Seems it goes out on Friday afternoons and comes back sometime Sunday.
    That was someone else's observation.

    It's a bad time to be out as it's the Palmetto show. Need feedback.
    But there are 2 other Florida only sites.

    I did not know this. Could you tell me what they are? Born and raised Florida Boy and I don't get around much on to the local stuff.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the links! I was unaware of these sites. Beats debating politics on one of the local newspaper sites. :D
