Will Keep Open Mind
but need to see to believe
Well, I knew it was going to happen soon after the AU thing was announced, as it just made sense, so it isn't a terrible shock that the forums are closing, and I'll hope for the best. I suppose I'll just watch. It might turn out to be OK.
/me stands a long way away and refrains from asking /me wonders what "upcoming changes to our hosting infrastructure" means. on the blog.
I don't really understand why it wasn't possible, three years ago, to have archived everything and leapt to an updated forum software, or to have hired outside people to fix the forum software, or even why software companies give themselves such weird names ("jive," "BS"). I'm awfully glad the forum is being archived on the Web and not in someone's garage.
