CPF is down, so here I am :)

Actually I've been following old4570's posts for a while, and he helped me from over there with a solarforce l2i mod.

I'm happy to be here, I am learning a lot! :]

Have fun , its a great forum .... 

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

Welcome to this great forum.  They have treated me very well and do not look down on me for wanting a light that provides great value for money.  Smile

You will quickly find that they do things more politely here.  Here you will get treated with respect and have a lot more freedom to post what is on your mind rather than worrying about what they want to let you post. 

Welcome to the Best Flashlight Forum!

Same here and welcome aboard! Both CPF sites don't work half the time anyway-I'm pretty much giving up on them and the nasty moderators before I really do get in trouble...

CPF is down, so here I am Smile

Yep, pretty much the case.  It's just a damn shame so much information's been lost, incompetence compounded by hubris.  Welcome!

If you want to keep it that way put a new line in your hosts file.

 

127.0.0.1   www.candlepowerforums.com

 

and it'll be down for you for ever.

 

Adding

127.0.0.1     www.cpfmarketplace.com

 

might just save you a fortune.

One word for CPF/CPFM: Format c:\ !! I know I said it already...

Time to cut losses and start completely over. I've pretty much given up on both. Unbelievable.

Paid advertisers need to start leaving... maybe that'll get them to just rebuild everything from scratch with a new hoster and hardware while they're at it.

If it was my own computer screwing up like that, I'd have done that a long time ago.

CPFM is ok.
