Anyone know whats going on with the forum? Appeared to be down last night and still down this morning.
I could never get in it, so I gave up.
It's working now.
I can't get on it either.
I can't get on either (err. server not found) but when Is is up, the sound of crickets is deafening.
Status improving, click on MTFCI and get back: 123
Home page looks to be down, but the forum is still up. http://modelt.org/mtfcivb/
Forum is working for me, home page is down.
I very seldom go the the home page unless I want to see the classifieds. Even then, they have better classifieds that are linked to the forum page.
I can get into the forum but it will not allow me to log in.

That link goes to a swap meet website when I click on it. Might want to check again.....
This is the registration link for the MTFCI Forums:
There is something called USER FRIENDLY that is totally missing from that website.
The server problems experienced this week will happen, and I'm sure the bugs will all be worked out in time.
I personally find the MTFCI website to be a well executed, feature rich site, and I like it. However, I have a relatively current dual processor PC, running Win8, using a high speed broadband connection which I think has allowed me to view and use it in a relatively trouble free way.
Many vendors will tell you their software is backward compatible, which may be technically true, but because web developers want their "work" to look good with all the sexy feature available and working, they can unsuspectingly create a nightmare of glitches and incompatibility for older platforms.
The dichotomy is this; It is very difficult, if not impossible, to have a website with the the features of theirs that runs like ours.
To you Steve B., Keep up the good work! I had the opportunity to feel a teeny bit of your pain when my son recently advised me that I was a Luddite for continuing to keep our dinosaur "legacy" system... He's an avid under employed Gamer. Humble I shall remain.
Except for the Black back ground on the home page and classifieds from the home page, running Windows XP, I have no problem navigating their site.
