good night, sweet forums

Posted: June 15, 2019 in siteupdates

Last weekend, I clicked over to make the usual check of my forums… and they weren’t there. As I recapped to a friend, “Apparently my host sent an email [in March] that they were changing, and I’d have to upgrade. I didn’t have time, then I guess I forgot, because they kept working…”

I could install a new message board, but I won’t. I am in the process of weighing my website endeavors against my current — and foreseeable — level of interest, minimal free time, etc. My assessment of the forums is that, with 99% of the posting done by me, their absence will simplify my life.

My small photo gallery, a.k.a. “visual” is gone as well, unlikely to return.

For the last few years, my primary reason for keeping the forums open has been to avoid a slew of broken links. Presently, I am making a pass at removing them, but, my apologies, with the links so widespread, some breakage is unavoidable. I am anxious to finish this final bit of clean-up and return to work on this year’s priority project: an overhaul of my signature site, www.rusted-crush.com.

Many thanks to those of you who supported the forums through its 15(!) years on-line. What I would’ve posted there, I will now share here, so feel free to follow this blog — and respond in the comments, whenever you are so inclined. 🙂
