thanks @deathshadow for putting together this site as a replacement for codingforums.com

best,

I'm surprised CF is still up... well, not surprised entirely...

But when I saw the "oh it's going down TOMORROW" post I thought "well somebody aught to do something about that".

I had the server room/capacity, it takes maybe 10 minutes to install SMF, maybe another 12 man-hours to customize the theme and tack down all the corners (I'm halfway through that), so... just do it.

Because I know people. A lot will TALK about doing something, they'll plan, and scheme, and then maybe in a week or two they'll announce something coming in two or three weeks... Rather than sit around TALKING about doing something, DO IT! That's just how I'm wired.

For something that in total shouldn't even be 12 man-hours labor in terms of coding and deployment.

PROMOTION on the other hand, that's the real time consumer.

Just for the record, I checked just now, and CF is officially down. Honestly, when the management of the site changed, I expected it to last about a year or so and then be gone. Surprised it lasted as long as it did; not surprised that they pulled the plug on it.

Yup, it's gone... well, it's not ACTUALLY gone. If you manually add the old IP address to your hosts file, the server is still there, it just fails DNS now.

Which says all sorts of other things about the goings-on there.
