Is anyone else having trouble accessing The Vintage Watch forum? Cannot access since since yesterday.

Was down this morning but seems to be back up now.

Time, even vintage time, goes too fast for my tastes.

...and down again. Was about to post something too on the watch that Dan had posted.

That forum is running an old old version of phpbb, 2007 to be exact. Dave the moderator and Mario "the spam hammer" are always putting out fires (malicious posts), feel sorry for them.

Looks like the hackers might have taken down VWF again.

Yep. Dave just sent out an email about adding a new forum for selling watches today and the site went down shortly afterwards.

Just wanted to let everyone know that we have created a new sub-forum under
watches for sale.

It's a place where others have asked me to do.

For Trade. This is a place you can trade watches, rather than sell them.

I didn't get anything from Dave, but got this from Mark.

I did mean "Mark" Embarrassed I understand that it had something to do with that new sub-forum mass mailing by the site admin and their server thinking it being blasted by spam and then shutting down the site. They expect to be back up and running by tomorrow.
