yep standard for this site mate.

I am sure the "powers that be" are sick of complaints and the care factor has reached 0%. The mods do a great job and try hard to support the forum but it seems with little help from higher up.It does seem odd that some forums with hundreds logged on 24/7 never go down, I guess it comes down to the ability of the techs who work on it.

stockhorse .. Well in that vein of thought maybe it's a case of getting what you pay for ?? And that's NOT having a go at the moderators..

You're not alone jfoldbar, but it is only happening to a few of us and intermittently at that - often if you just try again in an few minutes or an hour or so you can get back on & be fine for quite a while! The IT Mob are trying their damnedest to sort it for us, but it's one of those 'undocumented features' that often occur in largish systems that have been modded & 'upgraded' well beyond their original 'use by' date, and since it doesn't happen to everybody or all the time, it's bloody hard to nail down exactly what it is that's making it happen.... to some of us & not the rest & only some of the time at that...... :confused:

But we all know it's easy to be an arm chair critic, funny how it's a whole lot harder to actually do it, innit?! :sillywink:
An Ex-Service person is someone who thought enough about their country & how great it is, how lucky we are to live here, to write a blank cheque made out to 'The People and Commonwealth of Australia' for the value of 'Up to & including my Life!'

Peter A...I read what your saying, but in my case it's not just the forum but the whole website.
Seeing that the basis of the website is a commercial marketing project one would expect that the general public as a whole would soon become disenchanted with a 404 or what ever on a irregular basis, and then product search elsewhere. When numbers are lost to opposition products, that's a sale that is lost forever..
Initially, I thought it may have been just a case of bandwidth..
Just my two bobs worth..

Same here , couldn't access anything to do with 4wd Action all night but the Facebook page .

It would be dumb if EMG is only looking after the Facebook page that seems to never go down & not look after the Shop .

I asked on the Facebook page if the forum was down trying to see if it was a forum issue or my own issue but I never get an answer which is why I like the forum cause I know the Moderators will answer me if I ask a question

Cheers TLC60S

Try this, it seems to have worked for me.

When you do get the page to load delete it from favorites and then re add it. Since I have done that I have not had a problem getting the page to load.

No one has died of old age , they are just old when they did die.
It's always put down as some (other) medical issue.

Humpty Dumpty was actually a wall mounted gun on a castle that fell down and broke during a battle

interesting bit of trivia.
my handbrake is korean, in korea the oldies do actually die of old age, not because of actual health problems (generally)
