Hi forum gang:
Birds of a feather flock together, but when the lead bird flies into a plate glass window, time to veer off and join another flock.
Anyone got something else  in mind??  I figure the next axe to fall will be the demise of this website-- somebody's gotta pay for it.
I hope magazine subscriptions and sales of other stuff have been refused/suspended.   Anyone tried to buy something from MAK lately as a test???

Thank-you for the most complete and honest summary of the situation.
I believe it will help all to move on,which for the good of the many is what is needed.
I would assume that the board will survive, it is my understanding that the Simple Machines platform is freeware and so costs nothing, correct me if i am wrong.
And hopefully my method of inquiry has not totally alienated anyone/everyone.

At one time, BCM had a dedicated server on GoDaddy.  Given the huge size of the database (including a ton of hosted pictures), I would suspect that the yearly cost of hosting this website is not insignificant.  I doubt that the sidebar ad income offsets the expense. 

I think a few folks have offered to host the site, and I know that the data is being archived, so I don't think the forum part of this site will go away.
