Thank you Bogies for the update about CTO. I'm still hoping it will return.

There might not be any files to download at TerraLuna, but we do share files with each other! hug

But yes - I miss being able to do a search and download files at cto!

So do I. But no files and no news. Nothing at all. Is anybody here a member of the FB CTO group? Does it still exist? Last year we had news from that group at least. I posted it myself several times. And now I have no access to the group and no news from anybody else...

The FB group is still around.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/ctosims/

February 13th Joan posted...

I'm so sorry I haven't posted in so long, but there is no news yet about the website. Waiting for John to do his part, and I can't really do anything until he does. I wish I could hurry him along, but he is a partner in a startup web hosting business and is constantly slammed with work. He's doing us a huge favor by doing this work for us at all. So I don't have a choice but to be patient with him. I'll keep you posted, and try to post here more often, even if it's only to say "no news yet". :)

Thanks a lot, DamonDamore. I have the link to the group also, but it just says, that I have no access. I have no idea why, because I was never going to leave it, but I'm glad that it still exists. And even "no news yet" from Joan even almost a month ago is still better, than nothing.

I hope it will. But it looks like we should be very-very-very patient. I will not be surprised if John doesn't find time for CTO this year... Maybe in 2018 we'll be more lucky? Or maybe not.

Well, I really want to hope for the best, but all this situation doesn't make me very optimistic. Joan can't do anything without John. OK. John is too busy with his real life work. OK. Is he going to have any free time for CTO in the nearest future? Unknown. Nobody promises us anything like this. Joan doesn't have a choice but to be patient, so we all don't have a choice. And don't have any new information most of the time. CTO has been down for more than 4 months already and it doesn't look like people really worry. It seems everybody just got used to live without CTO, and is feeling OK without it, especially now, when we have TerraLuna. So do we really have any reason to hope for the best?

The last time cto went down it was for 6 months, so I think we're used to waiting. We all hope it will eventually come back - there are so many files there and lots of information we don't want to lose. A lot of us also really miss the ability top search the files!

I think we all hope it will come back, but also realize it may never happen. sad

I may have lost most of my files, as my computer crashed and my external drive where I stored them is not working. mad

spyboots, I'm so sorry to hear that! You can probably get most, if not all, of it back at TerraLuna! smile

Thank you, bogies

I have taken my computer to a repair shop and hope they can possibly recovery most of them.

The external drive is so old that I guess it no longer works.

Edit: The external drive is now working okay, so I didn't lose EVERYTHING but still some missing.

Back up your external drive in case it goes down again! External drives and thumb drives have come down in price a lot - it pays to replace the bad drives!

Back up, back up, back up - my manta since my last meltdown! laugh
