No, it's actually doing just a little bit better today than it has been. It's taken about 5 retries or so (for each screen) to get through whereas it wasn't working at all. But I thought I'd post something sending them here just in case some others manage to get through.

The old site seems to up and running as of this post. It's back to what it had been before the slowdown-- so loot it now before it goes back down!

I'm pretty sure we're here to stay. Just because the old site's up right now, doesn't mean it will stay that way.

I know, nobody has posted on this topic in over 16 months, but looking back on the old forum, it's funny how there are spam bots posting on a board that hasn't been really used in god knows how long Laughing

It's a bit of a spectator sport in and of itself, isn't it? Laughing

My guess is that they saw the word "driver" and possibly "course" (as in race course or road course) appear a lot and the spam bots assumed it was about golf.
