    I've noticed that hofo will sometimes intermittently go down for periods that last just 1 or 2 minutes. Usually late at night. It's weird.

    That used to be a problem about a year or 2 ago. But recently it has been working pretty reliably for me.

    No problems in Greater L.A.

    HoFo is coming in loud and clear. The site is as ornery as always.

    one028, have you made any changes to your firewall lately? Or it could be the servers you use to access the internet.

    The thing of it is, Joe, that Wireless Advisor is so reliable, we don't have all of the problems that HoFo does.

    Wireless Advisor rocks anyway, so eat your heart out HowardForums!!

    Exactly, I don't care about HoFo being down but WA being down would be the end of the world for me...

    HoFo works fine for me, in Lansing, MI.
    I made the switch from GSM back to CDMA. I am happy with the service, but not the phone selection.

    ...If I were a fanboy in the least, I'd go out on a limb and say that WA is the Verizonicon of the Wireless Forums, compared to all the other wannabe-WA's.

    It's a good thing I'm not a fanboy, cuz my flame-suit doesn't fit anymore!!!

    Same here, I pop in to HoFo every now & then but it does seem to get crazy over there & I just need a small visit to remind me how good things are here & how lucky we are.

    I can't stand the in-text ads, they drive me nuts. It's very ugly looking as well.

    Amen to that!

    I've been a HoFo member nearly as long as I have been here, but I have only about 20 or so posts because of all the hating that exists there.

    Sometimes just lurking on HoFo reactivates my ulcer...

    I lurked on HoFo for a short time, but in the past as a BB used, it was BBforums and Pinstack for me. Then I found WA and added it to my standard rotation, along with my auto-enthusiast boards.

    When I finally decided to post something and joined, I never got the confirmation email to be able to actually log in. I went through the little process 3 times before I finally gave up on the site. I may lurk once in a while, but so far I am finding the BlackJack info I need here on WA.

    I like WA, and have the T-Shirt to prove it.

    I have to admit, I visit HowardForums far more than I do here. I like it over there. It's not better, it's just different. I think it is geared to a different crowd, like WA is.
