Hi Tom,I can't access the library :( . If I click a file link on the front page, I get the wait icon but after a short while it disappears again and nothing happens, no data page of the file, no "sorry we are busy" etc, simply nothing. I am using Mozilla Firefox.Best regards,Hugo

Can't tell if the cookie problem is fixed or not, can't even get a response from library.avsim.net (205.252.249.060) at port 80.scott s..

I got in about one in 10-20 tries. Had to create a new cookie.Looks like heavy traffic issues to me.

Just had to "kick it in the butt" and have it rebooted. It's back online now.

I have a custom tool we use to work on some of our blade servers some times - a 5 pound sledge - seems to get their attention when they are acting cranky.

Thanks to all at AVSIM for bringing the library back. As a little, self-employed person I greatly understand the value of free time. I really appreciate that you give up your free time for us members. I have contributed to the library in the past but will do so again once my last invoice for Jan gets paid.Best regards!

A big thanks to everyone for getting things back in order. I am sure that a million people complain when things don't work but very few say anything when they do work. I want to say, from everyone, thank you so much for all of the time, effort and money that you all put in for us! I would get a really pretyy girl to give you all a hug and a kiss as thanks but the logistics would be impossible, besides I know you don't want that hug and kiss from me, nor do I really want to give one to you. LOL! Anyway just know that we are very thankful for all that you do!Philip Olsonhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/supporter.jpg

Just a big THANK YOU for getting the library up and running again! The library seems to be working much quicker now, from either fewer people getting in, or resetting the server. I'm surprised you have all those files for us to use and keep everthing under control. Yes, sometime's there are problems, but you got it fixed quickly. Thanks again for keeping the biggest source of downloaded files for FS/FSX. Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like -M.Twain

Just as an advance notice....February 23rd, for about 6 hours, we will be taking AVSIM completely off-line in order to perform surgery on the servers. adding Memory in one, adding storage to the library, etc etc.Don't worry I will be posting news items as a reminder starting on the 19th with EXACT time-lines, but figured I could start the warnings now!Thanks!

May I add my appreciation of your efforts on our behalf, for without them FSim would be a whole lot less addictive.Just a small query, is there any possibility of reposting the uploaded files for the day when the Gremlins struck. Reason I missed a few I was interested in.Regards JohnT
