    Watchmutt this is nothing new, TRF periodically goes down, its just the way it is. It will be back, always is.

    Obviously you need to diversify your watch portfolio. :D

    Fortunately I have Omegas too. So I can take a little vacation here in the Omega forum. By the way, I like the look and feel of this forum.

    Well welcome to the forum. Stick around and kick a few tires. You'll find we're a bit different in that the forum in here for you to utilize and not the other way around :)

    And feel free to post all Rolex stuff you want. This is a Fanboy free zone. :D

    Think its been about 8 hours now, looks like a simple unix permission or webserver config problem that should be a 5 minute fix to be honest, but at 1,600+ views this thread gets a lot of traffic every time TRF goes down.

    That said welcome to any new members, always nice to have you =)

    I like (and use) TRF. Unfortunately, almost all of their problems are caused by sheer incompetence. There's really no nice way to put it.

    Yes there is a pretty nice crowd over there, for the most part. I know they all are in pain when the Rolex forum goes down, even though they know it's going to happen.:(

    Looks like they've been suffering from another DDOS attack - can't imagine that's much fun to deal with

    Yea I read that thread as well, a lot of what was said in it makes very little sense.

    Most of their members use WUS's Rolex forum as a back-up clubhouse. I've never bothered with TRF because I don't do Rolex anymore. I remember the first time I checked it out, and there was a thread full of members waxing poetic about their love for their watches. ::puke:: :rolleyes: That did it for me.
