It was down Sunday, and is down again today. Maybe he'll get it all transferred over this time.

Please guys don't jump to conclusions. None of us know what Alan is doing at any exact moment. He was gracious enough to put the old server back on line so that we could get our "fix". My suggestion would be to sit back, enjoy this site now and in the future and don't second guess!!!

An explanation from Alan as to what is going on would be courteous, anything longer than a day for a server move is excessive, unless the server is being moved across the country. The old site should be left up until the actual physical move. Like I said, it would be nice to hear from Alan

Dave,

You are entirely too impatient and expect a lot. Why don't you just chill and wait for it to be complete. I just don't understand all of this griping. Get a grip! It isn't like it is costing you $$$$ every minute...

I have other things to do besides arf...like work on radios. Hold on folks. Alan said he had Steven Speilberg doing the work for him so were in good hands.

Don

I am not impatient, there are many of good forums on the net. If ARF is down for a few days or a few weeks really doesn't make that much difference at this point. Like I previously said, a little communication would go a long way. Just stating a few facts.

Dave,

I just don't understand all of the constant complaints. But we are entitled to our opinions...

I am not complaining. You seem to feel that everyone that makes a post about ARF is complaining, that is not the case, many such as myself are just stating facts.

Well, stating facts as considered by one person, and another thinking it is complaining is just a difference of opinions. Why not just drop it and move on?

I don't know if it's complaining or not but we're creatures of habit and when things change our daily routine, I believe it's normal to become disappointed. Let's say we enjoy working in our gardens on weekends. If it rains, we're disappointed. Should we drive our normal route to work and there's construction, we become frustrated.
I think it's a point well taken that perhaps Allen could give us an update or appoint someone to give the updates. After all, hundreds of folks use and enjoy his site every day.
We can check the weather report and make other plans, we can watch the news and plan an alternate route if construction will cause traffic. I believe that not knowing is the cause frustration. Had I bought flowers to plant without knowing it was going to rain, or if there had been no mention of construction in a traffic report and I sat in stop-and-go traffic, I'd probably complain. -Just my opinion.
Personally, I like this site much better

I don't think anyone is complaining....unless it's complaining about the complaining. Very Happy

It's just guys making "small talk," like we sometimes do about the weather. "Think it's gonna rain today?" "Well it might." "But then it might not." "Yeah, you never know."

"I see ARF is down again." "Yup. Wonder when it'll be back up." "Maybe today." "Yeah, or maybe tomorrow." "Yeah, maybe." Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

This is a fine Forum.

But I like ARF.I suppose some of it is familiarity.

These "shut downs" can be frustrating- but I feel I have no
right to complain. It is a free service provided by someone who obviously
enjoys or gets some satisfaction out of running it- and, all in all, he does a fine job.

To complain about it when there are problems, reminds me of the time I was in a line outside of a hamburger 'shack'.
A homeless man was hanging around looking pitiful.I asked him if he would like a hamburger. He nodded in the affirmative.I got the burgers, and handed him one- he seemed appreciative. He opened up the wrapper, and his face suddenly had a look of disappointment.I asked him if anything was wrong?
He replied: "I don't like cheese...".

I for one eagerly await ARFs return, but until then will troll this site, its also nice to see more activity here.
Transferring the vast amount of data from one server setup to another I suspect isn't as easy as some may think. To get it right the first time would be a miracle.
I'm sure ARF will return, fully functional again, in the fullness of time.

Not complaining, but it sure leaves a hole in the day. I had a routine, check the classifieds at lunch, see what was up in the club house, get a laugh at the ebay bs and go back to work. just left a hole there.

Not a job I'd want, that's for sure.

I complain too much anyway-ask my wife! So I'm keeping quiet-especially since ARF isn't a greedy pay site. Why I don't use radiomuseum....

Be nice to have ARF 100%-let him take the time and get it right.
