    Motorrad Elektrik Gone?

    Just saw a different forum post about having trouble contacting Motorrad Elektrik. Website appears to be down or gone... Anyone have any recent contact with Rick? This seems quite out of the ordinary for him...

    double yikes.

    Let's hope it's just a temporary situation (e.g. website temporarily down)

    Haven't heard a peep on the Airlist about a problem. Maybe it's just a technical phone/internet (Earthlink) issue. Time will tell.

    I called 256-442-8886 (from the cached website) and got Rick's voice on the answering machine - it is after hours.

    I imagine that there is some issue with the ISP or what used to be called a computer "bug". [Do they still call 'em "bugs" anymore?]

    I haven't heard "bug" in a long time. What I have heard is unprintable.

    Check the other forum and you'll see the recent update that Rick is indeed still in business.

    Which "other" forum?

    OK, if by Boxerworks, then, yes, Rick is still in business. He said that in moving a bunch of files it ate up his allotted bandwidth, but hopes to be back up soon. He's going to a new service at the end of the month.

    Business as usual...just without the website right now...I guess we've all come to depend on the web presence...

    I've always heard that "bugs" were "undocumented features"....

    Is Windows a Virus?

    Is Windows a Virus?

    No, Windows is not a virus.
    Here's what viruses do:

    1. They replicate quickly - okay, Windows does that.

    2 Viruses use up valuable system resources, slowing
    down the system as they do so - okay, Windows does
    that.

    3 Viruses will, from time to time, trash your hard
    disk - okay, Windows does that too.

    4 Viruses are usually carried, unknown to the user,
    along with valuable programs and systems. Sigh...
    Windows does that, too.

    5 Viruses will occasionally make the user suspect
    their system is too slow (see 2) and the user will
    buy new hardware. Yup, Windows does that, too.

    Until now it seems Windows is a virus but there are
    fundamental differences: Viruses are well supported
    by their authors, are running on most systems, their
    program code is fast, compact and efficient and they
    tend to become more sophisticated as they mature.

    So Windows is not a virus.
    It's a bug.

    Maybe a moderator should delete this entire thread.
