Clicking my favorites link that normally takes me to the main page, brought up the "RFF is having problems" notice just about 10 to 15 minutes ago.

Are we staying with this ISP after all this grief? What about going back to where we were? (Could be a good subject for a poll.)

Yes, VERY slow loading, especially for the first page. Probably too many of us RFF addicts.

I'm also amazed at how long recovery has taken. I've run web servers in a university environment. I can't imagine how a large company with multiple servers servers and RAID could be down for too long, unless the problem was with connectivity to the outside.

Oh well, I, for one, realize how much I like RFF, and will help support the site, if called upon.

Thanks Stephen - what a mess. One felt like an addict being told to go "cold Turkey" - tried the Forum at least 2-3 times a day - to no avail.
Hope it will stay put now - it is too stressful to comprehend another 'crash"
However, got a lot of film developed and scanned, read several books, dis-mantled a F3 to find out why the meter circuit was acting up - but none of that matters without the RFf- fix!

You probably just have that page in your local cache. Delete your cache and you should get the regular site no problem.

RFF was up and down for a bit but seems really snappy now! No grumble from me, either. I didn't realize how much I'd miss RFF until it disappeared.

Thank god... I do like Flickr, but to be totally honest, that bright white background gives me a headache after a while.

RFF is much easier on the eyes!

RFF is back, my horizons are a bit broader, life is good.
RFF was exactly down during my businesstrip so I frequented flickr a little bit more. APUG is a good tip !

Glad we're back! I tried to find joy on other forums, but no luck. Please don't go down again.

2 ingredients to this formula: the server/software and the users.

When RFF went down I lamented not having access to the site, but when I got in this morning and nobody was around it really brought home the fact that the users on this forum make it special (despite the --mostly-- good-hearted jabs we get on other forums!

Missed you guys!

It's good to be back. I developed an itch that turned into a rash for a LF camera while RFF was down. I need some bag thread therapy...

Thanks for all the hard work getting us back.

When RFf went down - I got this urge to shoot with SLR's (my 3 Nikon F3's that I picked up in Japan). Please dont do it again - SLR's are heavy and noisy (particularly with motors).
Thanks for getting it working again - no day is complete without a Rff fix.

Holy Smokes, I was developing a bad case of the shakes. Glad RFF is back together, and in one piece. Now I don't need to get a life!

So nice to have RFF back again! Thank you, Stephen. I sure it was a much more frustrating week for you than it was for us. Pour yourself your favorite beverage and accept this virtual clink of the glass from all us inmates of your friendly asylum.

This thread is very comforting. I thought I was the only suffering withdrawal symptoms...
