    The time here in the UK is 06:44 am, having put all our clocks forward 1 hr for what we laughingly call Summer Time.

    Ww2talk went offline at 14:30 on Friday afternoon and I am still waiting for it to re-open.

    Yes......I know that everyone is trying to re-instate us as soon as possible, but the danger is that I will get fed up waiting and move myself permanently to ww2f and that wouldn't be much joy for you, would it ?

    Please ww2talk, let us get back to normal SAP before this old git in Cockfosters gets tired of waiting :(

    What an impatient lot. ;)
    Imagine we're a group that meets at the local village hall .
    It's a bit old & delapidated & needs a new roof , re-wiring & a lick of paint.
    That wouldnt get done overnight & the meetings might take place at another location for awhile.

    But because it's the internet , people expect it to be done instantly.
    I'm quite enjoying the break & visiting somewhere different.

    Maybe as ww2t got so busy & poplar there might be rather alot of info to transfer.

    Aha, a chance at a captive audience. Already bored, they might just read one of my very long transcipts which noone bothers with normally. :D

    Don't worry about down time.....if they are just twitching a little that is no problem......now if their twitch turns into an underside fully clinched pucker and they report that.......you might show a little concern in a week or two.

    Guys I feel your pain. Our switch was supposed to take a "Day" but was closer to 3 and felt like a week. Don't fret, soon you will be back and complaining for a month "How come my.....Doesn't work like it did before?"

    It has driven Otto into his Secret Undisclosed.Security Bunker. (oh he claims he visiting his parents and getting back surgery, but thats for the press release) :)

    Huh, huh...he said "doo."

    Ulrich, come to the Southern US. It is supposed to be in the lower 60s F today, which is about 17 C and 290 on the Kelvin scale. It snowed one day this winter here and it melted as soon as it touched the ground.

    It is now 3 long days since ww2talk was up and running.

    Despite the fact that I'm pleased to find any port in a storm and equally glad to catch up with old friends who post on this site, I'm getting a tad cheesed off with the absence of familiar threads.

    Frustrated from Cockfosters :(

    Hi Ron, it's surprising how familiar a place (even on the Internet) becomes isn't it? I keep on checking to see if its back yet too.

    I've lost count how many times I've checked to see if the UK end is back online. As the saying goes "A watched kettle never boils". All I can say, is that I'm dying for that proverbial cuppa.
