Re: RSS Feeds

I have disabled the RSS feeds to the Forum after getting reports messages were being reposted multiple times. Apparently, there was an extension "bug" that occurred with an update to the main forum software.

I've flown enough over the past 14 years I do not need to go flying any day the sky is clear. How about others? Have most of you hung up your equipment for the wint...
