I'm still lurking, but I'm even more uncertain of my ability to participate in the 2015 race than I did for 2014...

I fly with the Saturday crowd when schedule permits, which isn't as often as I'd like and will be fewer and farther in between due to current commitments.  I should be available for the RTWR, and am planning to fly in the MacRobertson next month at SOH.

 

Good to hear from you, Buzz.  You should update your sig message...  :rolleyes:

I thought I saw you were heading to the maritimes.  Atlantic Time.  Good luck with your move.

Yes, at the end of November I am moving to Moncton, New Brunswick. 1600kms from where I currently live. ;)

Howdy everyone!  Still alive and kicking here in the best flyover land in this country!  After the race things got hectic and busy rather quickly. First and foremost my father passed away in early May. I have been dealing with his estate and work. Juggling those both have been taking up a good chunk of my time over the last few months.  But don't fret, I am around and plan to get in on some flying over the Thanksgiving holiday season.  Looking forward to "seeing" you all here soon!  If I don't hear or see you, I hope your holiday season is bright and wonderful! All my best to all of you! :)

Hey Howdy Hey 

 

How has the server performance been at AVSIM for posting?  I always have to login to see the forums.  I believe in the rules the forums need to be in an open and public place.

Travis,

 

 They forums seem alright although I believe they are still down ~4:00 AM cst daily. (10:00Z) Make sure you have cookies allowed for the domain "AVSIM.net" that should help the login problem.

I think the forum is stable enough to use this year, i personally haven't experienced any issues with it.  Does it indeed go down at 4am CST?

 

Thanks

I can confirm that there is still the hour-long outage, both AVSIM website and forums, from 0900-1000 UTC.

My 2cents

 

AVSIM is and will remain our team affiliation.  We will use the AVSIM forums for recruitment, practice, and other stuff but we don't absolutely have to use it for baton tracking during in the race.  We can make the final decision when the race date approaches.  There was no problem last year using the RTWR forums for leg posts.  The other teams were fine with it.  We can post pireps, screenshots and stuff on the AVSIM forum and use the RTWR forum for baton pickup and drops.

You are correct Jeff, if the forum didn't actually go down for an hour every morning it wouldn't be a problem. Do we know why it is doing it? Has their been an official reason given? Or is it just that AVSIM is soo busy they do daily maintenance at that time?
