    He may still be doing things in the background but its the little things in the foreground that we can't to because we don't have the rights that are where it would be nice to have some help.

    Yes, there are a number of functions reserved for the main admin, not having access can throw a kink in things sometimes. But you all do a fantastic job with the access you do have!

    Looks like a good but different group up there! Of course I imagine some of the names would be different since it is tougher to use nicknames on FB

    I do you use Facebook, but much prefer the full forum experience. What FB I do is mostly in a browser on my laptop. My kids say that means I am ancient.

    I would hate to lose this site as I will never have a FB account. Forum accounts are all I need. Kudos to those who keep us up and running.

    My crawler script can make a backup of all textual content as long as it's s available.
    But we should not worry. Horse is always missing and the site is still there.

    I would have to say I probably would be done also if the site went down, after uploading almost 11 years of data in the technical area on the website I would not have the urge to recreate the technical area on any other website. Just to much, I have most if not all backed up on external hard drivers but just wouldn't have to urge to recreate it.

    I blame Joe for that monstrosity there and talking me into doing it LOL, sorry Joe though you need to come back to Air venture this year. Last I heard I will be meeting with Eric again this year.

    Obviously I do not have near the time invested here, but while I would certainly mourn the loss of this community and I would not revert to FaceBook, there are a few others left. But none with quite this flavor and temperament. It would truly be a loss to all of us in that event. Fervently hoping nothing to worry about!

    Don't worry, Horse only drops by once every 2 to 3 years. It's normal and the forum survived.
