Minmaxboards again ... hey can you remember your password?

 :o
already suffering from Bhu Cat Withdrawal ; which coincidentally may be going on at Bhu's workplace right now.


I miss the BG_Baby's +1 Rattle of Cuteness pic, already ... (sniff)

Is this the Post-Modron Apocalypse ?!

Yeah, though I fear this is the Big One. I haven't kept up at all on the search for a new server/host, so it was just my first thought. Anyone else seeking temporary refuge here?

There was a group working on the database.
Whether they've got the issues figured out / fixed / papered over as much as possible ...
well, I don't have any inside info.

So I'm hoping for the best.

I'm here. 

There's a thread over at GitP too, as well as another attempting to archive as much as humanly possible.

***UPDATE****

The MMX forums should be back online shortly. This is a temporary reprieve. It's $14.99 a month to pay for hosting, and BlueHost is "kind" enough to allow outsiders to pay. HOWEVER: This does not solve the reasons that the forum was being transferred in the first place. The most critical of these are that the forum software is out of date and has known malware in the wild, and that because email verification is down, new users cannot sign up.

Prime32 and I can get a new forum up and running at MinMaxForum.com in short order (it's not there yet, don't go looking), but the data copy across would have to be entirely manual. We do not have access to the back end of MMX, nor will we unless the BGs grant it to us. Therefore, manual copying is the way forward, regardless of where it ends up.

That was posted at 8:12pm 6/12, according to the GitP servers.  As of the timestamp on this post, MinMax is still down.

Yikes! Well... hopefully it gets back up at some point. I'm a long term inmate. I'm not sure what I'd do if they closed the asylum.  :'(

... Giles The Cleric is spearheading the 2nd Linklord231 link.

Man, it was terrible. Thankfully, I had everything on Google Docs already, and was able to repost in short order. Libertad's copy of my sorcerer guide on this form helped immensely as well, as my Google copy was one or two version behind.

I am the Black Mage! I cast the spells that makes the peoples fall down!
