"Access to Pilot's Lounge" Link not Working

For several days now, I haven't been able to get to this forum from the support page link.   I was only able to get in now with a direct link that Firefox had saved for me on the "New Tab" page.

That's really strange, but you're right, clicking on the Access to Pilots Lounge link, doesn't work.

The reason that it's strange, is that the hyperlink under Access to Pilots Lounge is http://www.captainsim.org/cgi-bin/yabb2/yabb.pl

And the hyperlink, under the Forum Icon, on the Captain Sim website home page is http://www.captainsim.org/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl.

Even clicking on the two hyperlinks in this post are the same. The first one doesn't work, and the second one does. Shocked

So the only difference between the two, is the capital letters in the word YaBB, and I didn't think that hyperlinks were case sensitive!  Undecided

I've tried to access the forum with my browser bookmark for the last day and half and couldn't connect.

I believe it's just coincidence that link worked for you as they probably just performed a server re-set about the same time.

For most of yesterday, I wasn't able to access the forum either, which I put down to maintenance, but that doesn't account for the "Access the Pilots Lounge" link not working.

Click on the hyperlinks in my first reply, and you'll see what we mean. Wink
