For the group who LOVE to make threads never end, this forum is for you. Contained inside are the longest threads known to man, and responsible for half of AARR's posts. :)

Looking at this today, 11/7/19, it appears I posted in May at 11:05 pm, but the post was actually done at 12:05 am on June 1st. Something got messed up when the time changed. I'm sure this post will show up as 12:28 am on 11/8/19 when the time changes next year. The actual time is 11:28 pm, on 11/7/19.

Test not going so good. Chat box doesn't load. Main site isn't correct. Funny interface. No topics to see. This is the only one that showed up and it showed as a message from Z with a red exclamation point. Hope you get it back soon Z!

I obviously haven't been very active on this site recently, as this is only my 27th post in 6 months. I used to do train location updates a lot, but stopped doing that when it became pointless about a year ago. Why post what I hear live on my scanner when someone is going to go right behind me and post what they heard and saw over the internet on webcams over 500 miles away?

I hear what you are saying. I rarely post location updates any longer either. Tom has it all covered and re-covered. I will post if it is outside of his normal update territory though. I will admit his updates make it handy to find trains though. Doesnt miss much except D707.
