Anyone know what happened?

This forum went down 2018/11/06

Today 2018/11/13 is the first day it has
come back up and I was able to access it.

I had almost given up hope. Everything
handloads.com just disappeared as did
backwoodsphotos.com which is pretty much a
dead forum but still is a nice archive of
photos some of which make nice desktop
background and screensaver stock and I
believe is hosted on the same server. In
a previous anti-2nd hacker attack on this
forum they didn't touch
backwoodsphotos.com probably because they
didn't know it existed.

Anyone know what happened?

Just goes to show the need for keeping important stuff. The amount of
valuable information in this forum is too much to lose.

I gotta start saving some of the loads and techniques I've learned here.

Craig had told me the forum was down, but I had no contact info for John. So I made a few contacts with Lynn and Terry. Low and behold Terry found a good number for John, and he was able to get it back up and going!

Thanks Terry Willis and John for the process to get it done!

I feared the worst. So glad it's back up.

I thought it was the end and removed it from my bookmarks.

Would be nice to see people posting, maybe that would convince
John to keep the forum open.   Have to say I'm guilty of not posting
much anymore myself.

True - but - we're a fairly small group. Mostly older guys. Mostly not posting anything particularly new or exciting.

Other than an occasional range trip or hunting trip, I don't seem to have much to share. I don't typically buy new guns anymore. Have my favorites. Loading the same loads for them that I usually do, on the same press, with the same dies, as I have for years, decades...

So - I can see why the posting slows way down. Not all that much new and different seems to be going on with this crowd.

Glad the place is still alive though.

Solution: Everybody buy more guns!

Actually, I was toying with the idea of trying to organize a weekend get together with range time, sharing loads, maybe a bit of friendly competition, cooking out, etc.

I don't get to spend as much time here as I once did. Also we are all getting older and some of the memebers here have gone to be with the lord in heaven. Stuffit & Paul    
However I'm still active on the 10mm firearms forum being a moderator there. Sometimes I an actually doing commercially sold ammo documentations to see what they are loading with to make their numbers.

I'm actually waiting on my next firearm to be built. Its called the CSP-Combat Service Pistol which will be a very close clone of the Bren Ten pistol.

Anyway I do try to drop in every once and a while to see who and what people are posting.
All the best to you guys here...

Could you, or someone, get the word to the head honcho that this site is not accepting new members?
Without new blood ........... well, you know the rest.
