!! Server Downtime !!

Ford Truck Enthusiasts experienced the longest unscheduled downtime in its history. The server was down from approximately 7:00 pm 12/16/02 to 10:00pm 12/17/02 (EST). We experienced a hardware failure that required rebuilding and restoring the server from backups. Nothing was lost as all message board posted were successfully retrieved from the hard-drive. Please bear with us over the next couple of days as we bring up additional services such as the User Gallery, email, etc.

Yeah, great job, man. This site is by far the best source for info on my truck, from real people, and it's the best, most mature, best regulated message forum I have ever found, and trust me, I've looked!
Keep up the good work!

[updated:LAST EDITED ON 18-Dec-02 AT 07:05 AM (EST)]I'd like to add my thanks and appreciation to Ken, and all the people who keep FTE up and running... this is the greatest site on the internet when it comes to keeping older Ford trucks running and restored, nothing else comes close!



Wishing everyone a safe a joyous Holiday season... if you're traveling, be safe.
