Nobody likes to be called a dummy by a dummy.

Does anyone have a plan about moving?

We are being kicked out. Anyone have a forum somewhere we can move base camp to?

Could it ever be the same though?

Yeah, well. Whattaya do, adapt, or die?

It's not the place, it's the people. I've got hosting space, I could probably code something up comparable to this forum tonight.

Keep everyone's fix going for a while.

Exactly, it's the people.

AHA, do you want to team up and get something running?

How about subscription?

$20 per year? :)

Simon Lucy cobbled this together a while back : http://www.ectopia.us/

Not perfect, but until something more permanent can be established it's at least a place to regroup...

MarkTAW has the software that is very similar or is the same as this board.

Absolutely... anyone interested email me.

I have an Apache/PHP host. I couple of servers. I assume that ?off doesn't get too much traffic that it might come in unnoticed.

What would really be cool is a domain name, unfortunately www.offtopic.com is taken. I have a few domains we can hang off of, if necessary.

Exactly. All reasonable names similar to 'offtopic' are taken.

I am also thinking that we should create a forum on a domain which is already running because if you buy a new domain now, it might be a while before it's available to everyone.

I have a little forum at http://test.madebymonkeys.net?template=lithCore_Index

Even if you don't come there permanently, someone please drop me a line there and let me know where most of you end up, as I won't be online tonight.

If enough people are interested in hanging out on my site (I'm not holding my breath, but still), then I can work a template so that it will display similiarly to ?off within a couple of days.

GL everybody, and thanks for all the posting.

"I have a little forum at..."

It's too bad it's ugly as sin! *grin* I just grabbed Joel's HTML, I won't steal it outright but I think everyone would be more comfortable with something that looks and feels the same.

I would be willing to donate CrazyOnTap.com for this purpose.

I actually seems very fitting, given that the domain name was inspired by Mr. McKinstry himself...

AA,

It could look and feel the same within days, which is what I was sayin'. :)
