    Hey James, nice to meet you!
    Not sure why I haven't gotten around to posting here sooner but it only took me 3 months!

    I edited your email for spam prevention. Probably won't help - those Russian computers are crafty ... I will start forwarding stuff to you!

    Is there more than one operator record for the Royal Air Force? I seem to see quite a few that don't have an operator flag, most recent ones are:

    43C68F
    43C69B
    43C69D

    Also, I've noticed a few Ministry of Defence planes marked as civil aircraft, 400EB6 is one I've spotted today

    The database editor currently seems to be broken so don't expect to see any changes. I sent a message to Dan but haven't heard back.

    We're working on a bunch of stuff. Can you PM me the editor url and a login?

    I've tried. It says my message is spam-like or contains inappropriate content. Change or try again later.

    It's been a couple of weeks since I've been able to update the database. I get an "Exception encountered:" error message.

    However, desktop reports are still working, even though I don't think any new data has been added since about 9th Feb.

    I still have no idea how to log into it. I assume there is a username AND a password.

    Hoenstly tho, VRS wasn't made to do anything at this scale and the dev is sort of not interested in improving it --- so we're trying to move away from it this year.

    Will that affect the aircraft database in the short term?

    No, Dan thinks VRS is just overloaded and we've given it all the resources we can. The plan is to build a mysql database to edit and update - then have it export daily to VRS can read and display on the front end. We are at the point where we can't buy any faster CPU and buying more servers just isn't cost effective.

    Dan was going to give it a kick last night so it might come back up or it might not.

    The mysql option makes sense. That should take a load off.

    Database is still giving the Exception encountered: error, so I'll just keep a list of updates to process, until it gets sorted.

    Thanks for doing that! If we can get it up and working I'll post here.
