It was a nice run and I have had a great time developing and maintaining this site, but today I signed papers giving ownership to another company. There will be a formal announcement later this afternoon. I cannot say which company as of yet, but stay tuned.
All the current moderators can continue being moderators, if they so choose. I will continue to moderate for a short while to assure a smooth transition, but then I will become just a regular user like most of you.
I am sorry it came to this. The amount of time it takes to maintain this site with nothing coming in has gotten to be a bit much for me. The new owners have assured me that the forums will not change much, but they may be considering a redesign of the rest of the site.
I want to thank you all for the support you have shown throughout the past several years. I think this was something good and maybe with the new ownership, it may turn into something even greater then what I can do.
