|OUTAGE EXPLAINED - blue light in the horizon (16/12/21 12:18:34)||Reply|
But it gave me a forceful reminder that ebmb is an old site with old supporting code based on a PHP version that some day may be unavailable. I have no idea when.
Another matter altogether is that the climate for opinion exchange on the Internet has changed drastically from the optimistic days of fravia.org and insidetheweb.com. HTTPS has become the standard (ebmb is still http only). But the rise of new and loud voices with different agendas has put pressure on discussions. And finally: ebmb has lost the majority of its posters - through death, or through silent withdrawal which might include death.
And finally: I retired 5 years ago, and in a few weeks I will be rounding 70. In not too far future even I will be leaving silently.
So the time has come for a discussion: What are we going to do? I will renew the subscription for yet another year - but there is a real possibility that the coming year will be the last.

Nice memories here!
At the end, archive it on Archive.org.

The world has gone insane, the powerful have resorted to using their power to keep the voices those who are not surpressed. Not the this is new but it has become less subtle now.
