  • Possible Sudden Message Board Shutdown today

    Hi Gang,
    We're hoping to get me the admin abilities I need to be able to ban by ip address and e-mail extension. It may mean shutting the board down for a few hours today.

    As a part of this change, we're going to shut off comments for the blogs; that's a sneaky way spammers have been getting in.

    Best Regards,
    Bob Duncan

      Don't know how long I can go without my "forum fix" Bob, but I'll be strong.

      Thanks for taking care of things.

              Thanks for the update Bob. Good luck with the programing fix. Just remember...to err is human, to really foul up requires a computer.

                    We've turned off the comments in blogs. Did you actually have people posting spam as blogs, or just as comments?

                      Both.......I've had a few do a spam post as a visitor comment as well. These I have not been able to find by searching. I just stumble across them sometimes weeks after the fact.

                        by Rolf
                        I tend to be a bit scattered when it comes to projects, I get bored and move to something else mid stream. It seems to be getting worse with age,

                        Any way I decided to tune up both of my saws, the EX 16 and my Hawk G4-26. I thought I had the EX perfectly square to the table until I cut...

                        Great news. I know from personal experience getting the vaccine has been a great uplift to me. It gives a new hope that the worst is truly behind us. In the US we did not have a choice in most cases. You got whatever you got. My wife and I both had the Pfizer one and had minimal issues like: arm...
