Thank you, Jeff, for taking the initiative that you have. As I have previously said, I treat the assets of the clinic as a trust I hold for this community of riders. The clinic was built by its users, and from my perspective, it belongs to them. I like everything I see coming together a lot. I think the new forum option will bring some added versatility, albeit at the expense of some of the features we have here. It is also being proposed as a hosted solution, which takes the day to day code management out of the responsibility of the members.
The archiving option may prove tricky, but I guess that time will tell.
Jeff: one thing you will have to address is the high number of 404 requests you are going to get in the new solution. Please be prepared for that. It may be addressable off the shelf at the new forum.
I am posting this to let everyone know that I endorse what is being proposed as an alternative that can keep the clinic alive for its members. I wish I had more time to contribute, but I really don't. It is all I can do to get enough bathroom breaks into my day right now.
Good luck everyone! It sounds like we are headed into some good options.
Steve, thank you for everything that you have done and continue to do. and thank you for taking the time to be the friend you have to some of us. Good luck on your new endeavors. Kai
