Wrong forum I expect, but do links to threads on PPRuNe still work? The reason that I ask is that certain threads enjoyed, until very recently, a steady trickle of additional views. However, PPRuNe has recently had security issues, so the amount of access guests can get is restricted. Yet I've noticed that there are guests shown online, on the military aircrew forum these generally account for 10-20% of users. According to a moderator there guests can view threads, the restrictions on the access of guests are largely due to numbers and vary at random, and AOL users may have more trouble than most since the Hackbot attacking PPRuNe uses AOL IP addresses. Something to do with dynamic addressing? So, I'll ask you to try the following link and seeing if you can view some pages (I admit I wrote much of it). URL of very long Sea Jet thread on PPRuNe If you can get onto it, it would be great to hear. The current restrictions are temporary - but I don't know what that means in practice. How temporary is temporary? I apolegise for being a dull retard and for my naval aviation related (and the rest) Obsessive Complulsive traits.
