Yeah, that was too long! There's been the occasional outage before, but this one had me worried...

Me either, Facebook that is.

How bout the down and dirty two sentence explanation?

I had SRF friends calling me and I told them I don't have a clue what happened, but having snooped around on several other gun forums was a little surprised at some of the nasty comments from some folks. I did finally find one posting from someone saying by Monday or Tuesday all would be well again and was pleasantly surprised to see they were correct.

What went wrong.

We screwed up and let the domain payment lapse.


Nasty comments.

Over the years, some folks who held SRF official board positions were, for various reasons, removed from these positions. There are also people who have had their SRF membership revoked. If you are curious as to why these actions were taken, take note of their behavior on other posting boards.

The last sentence sums it's up, it's been pretty childish.

Yep, I am way out of the loop and still in China so I had no idea what happenned. I checked in and got the domain expired page. I did find 1 forum talking about the outage and went over there for a look-see. Some of them had nothing to good to say about SRF.

But I'm glad SRF is back up.

And please remember......."Old milsurp collectors never die........we just smell that way." :lol:

I must be reading the wrong threads. I never really see much out of sorts here, other than some of the firearms. :)

My wife is wondering why I'm no longer twitching and mumbling incoherently about cosmoline and corrosive ammo like I've been doing for the last 4 or 5 days. :dance:

I did a quick search and couldn't find anything recent about the forum being down, so I was banging my head against the wall trying to figure out how I was being redirected to the "buy this domain site"(I am not a computer whiz). I finally called a friend to check it and he got the same message(may have got a new member out of that).

The important part is that it's back online. Thanks!
