Nitrozac and I can no longer afford our current dedicated server, so we will be moving the site to a cheaper plan in March. (We'll be saving about 100 bucks a month.)

Unfortunately I don't know if I can get the Forums working on this new site. The cgi-bin is configured differently, and the host might not actually allow the old code on there, but I will try. So there is a chance that this is the last month of these once mighty Forums. I will upload all the old threads and such to the new server, so you may be able to find them via Google, but again, I'm not sure if I'll be able to resuscitate this beloved place.

Some might say it's already dead, and I'm just pulling the plug, but man, it hurts pulling the plug. [weep]

Thank you and Nitrozac for everything you have done to keep all the lights on. It is sad to know things have to change, but I am eternally grateful for this site.

It's a sad day, indeed, but you have to do what's right for you. If the forums die I'll mourn their passing, but life does go on. At least we'll still have the comics.

We will still have the comics? Right?! Cause if the comics die I might need to come out there and [insert Facebook-style rant, appropriate dank meme, and link to inflammatory misrepresented non-news item here].

Ditto. [weep]

If I can lend some sort of sysadmin aid, lemme know.

Alas, I'm in a more regulated field nowadays, or else, I'd offer some space on a spare server in a dark closet. [Smile]

Wow, I picked a sad day to randomly check in on the old stomping ground.

Thanks for the (many, many) memories.

It's probably a moot point.. but I have a teeny web server in my closet that runs apache and hosts my choir's practice tracks..?

MacManKrisK! Great to read you again!
Hope things are great with you.

Thanks for the hosting offer, but there's too much personal info associated with the Forums (emails, etc) to ever pass on to anyone else.

HI! [Smile] Bye [ohwell] I was doing a lurk and saw the thread. I then thought "I will say goodbye". Then I realized I did not have my login.

Thank you Snaggy. It has always been a pleasure here.

Hi everybody. I hope all has been well for every one of you.

Aye, I'd figured as much. It wasn't much of an offer anyway: a wee PC, sitting in my front closet (on a UPS, though!), acting as a web server on my residential cable connection. [Roll Eyes]

It was mostly symbolic gesture, I guess. [Beard of Peter Gabriel!]

True dat.

Verge declared "tiny, weird online communities made a comeback in 2017". I don't know if that's true, but I kind of wish it was. (Not saying we're tiny or weird or anything!)

Just an update, this is taking longer than I thought.

Also, shopping for webhosting sucks, as you think you find a good one, get it, but then discover things about it that are less than great. [ohwell] [Geek]
