Thanks for the warning Alan. BTW, I noticed some changes after the update a few weeks ago. I'll wait to mention them until after this next one hits, maybe they'll be corrected.

Every RR needs maintenance now and then, right?

The page looks pretty self-explanatory, not sure why anyone would be confused.

This upgrade gives everyone 6 to 12 hours to work on their railroad uninterrupted.

Actually more like getting the time to harvest the hay; er, mow the lawn!

The OGR Forum is the best thing to happen to the O gauge hobby in a long time. You are doing a very important service. Not sure I can manage without the Forum for 12 hours.


Agreed. While walking with other dog people this AM I had a bit of an epiphany. I was trying to explain this Forum to them (regular people, you know?) when suddenly I understood the degree to which communication amongst this group acts to enhance everyone's pleasure&benefit from the hobby. I think the term is "community". Thanks, Alan, for keeping the ship afloat.


Growing old is so much more fun than the only alternative.

Alan, do you know if this will affect the delivery of the daily digest on Tuesday morning? The email normally arrives in my inbox at 3 a.m., so I’m wondering if it will be delayed or missed altogether because of the maintenance timing.

For those of us with a sense of humor, it would have been hilarious watching these guys "blowing up Facebook" because they couldn't get logged onto OGR for 12 hours. Thanks for the heads up.
