Over the last three months, EK has been spotty.

Either they've dried up -- regretful.

Or they have technical difficulties.

There was a lot of good stuff there.

RR always amused me.

Let's hope that they get back on the web.

There were some posts of a web site closing due to the authors retirement or maybe exhaustion. I am now thinking this is the result and the site is now closed?
Still would like confirmation before i kill the link.

I used to go there...but I started to notice that there was far too little discussion and far too many personal interactions that had nothing to do with the original posts.

I was very happy to find ECN...with so many knowledgable members and dedicated moderators to keep the rants and temper tantrums under control and maintain a high level of professionalism throughout the site.

That's a real shame about EK, they had some really good information over there.

The Electrical Knowledge Site is up again.
I look at several electrical sites and the activity on most sites is way down. For example the Fluke site has been dead for 2 years now very seldom do you see new posts Electricians Toolbox is slow Electrician Talk is active Mike Holt's seems is active. There use to be several good topics going on all of the sites. Now it looks like allot of the members just have lost interest.

Hopefully, that's a sign that everybody's too busy working!
