Logging In from Over There

Post by Guncrazy » Tue May 19, 2015 2:35 am

I'll be heading to China next week, and I seem to recall that trying to reach this site from other countries might get you locked out. Is this correct, or am I misremembering?

Speaking of, tcourtplayer is traveling in Germany and just let me know via text that he was banned. I assume that it was because of the domains, and not because he's a Navy pilot?

I just checked him in the Members List and looks OK there, and nothing in the Moderator logs.

Nah. That just gets him banned from flying :mrgreen:

This reminds me - is anybody on the board stationed on a US airbase in Germany? A friend of mine collects Starbucks mugs from German towns, and she has them all except Rammstein and Spangdahlem. As those are US installations, she can't get onsite to visit Bucky's and buy a mug...

You should put that in its own thread so more people see it.
Note to self: start reading sig lines. They're actually quite amusing. :D
