    Anybody know what's happening with the AA forums? Since yesterday afternoon, when I try to go to the site, I've been getting this:

    I have no idea if anyone has any interest in that site anymore (administrator wise) Donkey was holding the fort for a while and 3D popped back, lionel hasn't been heard from in years. Maybe the subs are overdue.

    I hope that's not a permanent state of affairs, there's a tons great information over there, it would be a shame to lose it all.

    It would be a shame to see it go down the tube especially when others are willing to support it.

    Huh, I still check in there daily, was there yesterday and it seemed to work fine: all the new diet and boner pill spam posts came through loud and clear. Must have been before whatever happened happened. Now I am getting the same error message. Hopefully it's an easy fix. Would hate to see our friends who haven't come over here yet get lost/orphaned if the old home base is really done for! Fingers crossed that isn't the case...

    I'm guessing that it's just what it says it is.
    Server maintenance...;)

    I'm not sure what this means but the intro page i.e. www.alloyavenue.com is still up, it's the forums and blogs that are down.

    They might have been upgrading their software. It looks like they have a 2020 version of v bulleton. If you cannot connect still, you might have to wipe your cookies.

    maybe the newest version will help cut down on the spam....

    Whatever the reason they were gone, I'm really glad they're back

    The site is still down for me, I'm reluctant to start clearing cookies on this PC, it's rather old and fragile and things tend to go sh*te when I touch anything. Not sure if I still have Donkey's email but will have a look.

    Perhaps they are using the same server as Pornhub?

    Apparantly, according to the Great British BBC! Lockdown has swamped it. I'm inclined to check but not sure my AV is up to it.

    What, with the wife and kids around?? That's just kinky and wrong!

    I think I'll just trust the BBC on that one and stick with my casting/tool catalogue/machining porn, ooohh yeeeaaah.

    I have heard that any web sight that is a, Donald Trump non-supporting website, is slowly getting shut down.

    Don’t let rummers get the best of us. Cheers to a shot of bleach.
