Status Report: CEFSG April 21, 2009

As all of you are now probably aware, the CEFSG Forum is currently off-line. There was an unexplained problem with the main server and the technical team is in the process of moving the site to a "new and improved" server. To do that it is also necessary to reinstall the "Operating System" and that will take some time. We will do our best to keep you updated here on the blog site, not just now but in all future occasions.

To the best of my knowledge, no data has been lost.

The blog is left open so you can post comments, but until such time as we are sure that this blog does not become infested with "spam comments", all of the comments will be moderated.

Neil and the Moderators thank you for your patience and ask all the members to "Stand By".

In the meantime we have listed a number of other links that you may wish to use while the CEFSG is off-line.

If you are really lost without the CEFSG Forum you might also want to take this time to go check out the newest addition to the CEFSG Projects. I am pleased to be able to announce that we have finalized the agreement with the Lorne Scots Regimental Association and the CEFSG has now uploaded a draft copy of the document.

There were a few "glitches" with the initial upload of the scanned document. I have now replaced sections 2, 3A and 3B. I have removed the "Consolidated Copy". Please let me know if you find any other errors. Pages 51 and 52 are missing - I am looking for those pages!

Member comments will show immediately below each post. Bear with me as I try to figure out how to make them apprear at all times, but in the meantime just click on the "comments" tag to read notes from other members.
