Very sorry to hear this Steve but I understand. I don't know how all you guys that run websites find the time to have a life along with this. I do want to thank you for all your effort that went in to this over the years.

It is a sad day but I do understand. I check multiple times a day to see if anyone has anything to say but it seems everyone is done with it. As something to save some of your great information, you may want to get ahold of Dave Zatz(Dave Z) ( I think that's his full name) over at allpar, he way want to archive some of your great information, just as a thought. Hoping some of the guys would want to go over there, lots of decent guys and gals over there, they try not to be political so it is a pretty adult site with lots of information.

I'm looking around the end of July.  Our server is getting tired and I can't afford to build a new one

Steve, I'm sorry to see it go. It's been a good ride, but you are right, attendance has been down for a while. The costs, both financial and healthwise, are adding up for you. Time to look after yourself. Best of luck.

That was the address I gave him. Ever get anything from Dave Zatz? He said he emailed you yesterday, I will go over and double check things are OK. He was interested in getting ahold of you. Just checked and verified that was the address I gave him, and he did say he emailed you yesterday. I don't know what address or name he will be using.

This saddens me beyond words, but I understand completely.  If not for this forum, I'd have not met Hobby or Scott, both outstanding guys.  Not to mention, without Scott, my life would be even worse off than it is now with the events of the past 45 days.

Hi Dave  I got it.  Just been sleeping.  I seem ot be doing alot of that lately

This forum protocol is the same  one Microsoft uses.  They're pretty good!  The updates are current up to around January.  I can arrange for you to get into the server and collect everything directly.  Right now, the server is hidden in a huge Co-Lo so the hosting is free.  But all good things come to an end sometime
