It's been that way since yesterday. I got the main page up once but could not go anywhere.

I'm so depressed, I may actually have to do something else.

Down for me, too. Has been since mid-day yesterday. Just tried it 5 minutes ago and still nothing...

Hey - it's the weekend. At least one machinist site has to be down on any given weekend - it's the law!

Milicron's probably out on his boat and doesn't give a hoot about his site this week end.

I haven't been able to get there in a couple of days. MSC seems to be down, as well.

Milacron says the server is very sloppy about fixing itself on weekends. Wish He'd get a better one.

Not just PM. This site was down in the early AM as well.

Personally i don't miss it, quit it a long time ago, I thing the site owner went to the same behavioral school as Basil Fawlty!!

Connected just fine when I went there, but that was a couple of years ago.

Perhaps a re-name to Im-Practical Machinist is in order :rolleyes:

Probably not a site software issue, the server itself seems to be AWOL.

My guess is that he tried to migrate the site over to an old Deckel FP3 CNC with a Dialog 11 control and something went very, very wrong... Might be gone for good.

Im not a fan of Don's attitude, but his rules are pretty clear and he does tend to be rather fair about enforcing them upon everyone, unlike many other forums Im on. I do enjoy PM and will defend it simply bc of the large knowledge base and generally friendly and helpful attitude available there. Good luck finding that much knowledge of this trade anywhere else online or in reality. Hopefully it comes back online sooner rather than later...

Don's looking for a replacement, but it has to have pristine, original paint :p

Milacron probably b*tched out his server people for driving a Jap car or something as such and they pulled the plug in him.
