Anyone hear from Ed? He may be in Fchat quarantine.
again a new virus???
Been thinking about Ed, hope all is well with him. Going to dialysis in these times not very easy. BTW going through my old files found a personal letter he sent me welcoming me to FOC back in the day. Very kind and thoughtful. Wishing him all the health and safety at this time.

Bump, and wishing Ed all the best in these hard times. Hope you are working on another Ferrari Project. Original art by Chuck Queener.
Ed messaged me this evening. Asked me to relay that he is experiencing difficulty logging on.
Receives an “address taken” error ...
Any suggestions? I’m gonna try and help but not brilliant on some tech issues
That's great to hear Jim, thank you. Hey Ed we're over here!
Glad it's only Ed's address that is kidnapped and not Ed himself by the Ferrari purists . Can't wait for this issue to be resovled so he is back.
Have him create a NEW user name and log in Ed Niles2 and just steam on...….an eBay hack rendered my old account useless.
Just do that... easiest resolution, in my mind..
Better he be hit by a computer virus than a certain other virus!
Come on Ed we miss you, we want tales, we want tales!
Ed has over 2400 posts. Will he be able to continue as his old log in name i wonder? Is there something the Moderators can do to fix this.
Probably. Several posters here have changed their screen names and the mods have transferred over the old data. Might require two interventions to revert back to the original user name.
Regarding "Address taken" error, is that the full message he receives (can you confirm with him)?
It sounds like the IP address is being used by another device (his phone, another home computer, etc.). That can be remedied via rebooting the router then shutting down and restarting his computer once the router is back up.
Thanks I will share this with Ed.
Bad advice . Users who do that will find the new account closed or re-merged into their old account. We take account integrity seriously. Also any "ad hoc" account would not have Ed's post history nor his well-earned tags.
Yes, we do that as not everyone wants the same username for their entire life. But creating an account with a new username to be merged with an old username is the long and wrong way around to getting that done. It's easy to change the username to an existing account. Creating a new account, merging to an old account, and deleting the unwanted account is the half-assed way to do it. In any case, there's no reason to create a new username to solve a login problem, let's just solve the login problem.
"Address taken" is not enough info to identify what the problem is. The site logs show activity from Ed about 1:50PM Sunday. I've sent him an email to inquire as to what's going on.
2 user ID's is a no no. TOU violation and banable offense.
Clear cookies, clear temp files and cache and try again is a much better way to go.
and/or try a different browser.
computer reboot sometimes helps as well.
If still no luck, email the admin here: email@example.com
