Is Bob Bichen trying to put us out of our misery?

This site has suddenly gotten super sloooooooooowwwwwwww for me.  Anyone else experiencing this?  I hope Bob isn't getting tired of our substantial web presence.   Would be a shame for all that 9-2x specific knowledge to disappear.

Shitty internet service at my site, then.  Good to know.

Re: Is Bob Bichen trying to put us out of our misery?

It'd be an interesting case study on the "death" of a forum - how many post/day you need to actually pull people in.

It's blocked at work due to some supposed issue with the site that makes it dangerous. sadbanana

Re: Is Bob Bichen trying to put us out of our misery?

It doesnt help that the password reset function no longer works... I had to email someone at vertical scope and it was eventually handled, but I bet most people in that situation just give up due to the dearth of content. Methinks thats the sort of compounding behavior that leads to death spirals.

This?

Or perhaps it's that that the forum software is antique and probably full of security holes.

Re: Is Bob Bichen trying to put us out of our misery?

The work firewall would sometimes block it, sometimes not, but it's been consistently unavailable for the last however many months.

I blame facebook or whatever it's called.

Re: Is Bob Bichen trying to put us out of our misery?

My work firewall has also blocked it, which reduces my presence.  Curiously at my old Federal job, it was not blocked

Re: Is Bob Bichen trying to put us out of our misery?

forums are a great place for spies to dead drop clandestine information.

I would assume that every 3rd-4th post on this site is actually a foreign operative arranging a live meetup using coded messages.

Whoever ran your firewall on the government end was probably a mole.
