    where to meet up if this site dies?

    This site clearly has major issues since the move. I'll be crushed if I'm unable to find you guys -- you know who you are. Is there some new place I can find your folks?
    IMPORTANT: STOP using the mysql extension. Use mysqli or pdo instead.

    This site is going to get rebuilt by the new owners. And the more members they can keep the merrier.

    I'd prefer to stay here, but I'm also on Freaks and SO ....

    Only other tech forum I spend any time at is Webdeveloper.com -- which is a sister site which is also being transferred to the same new owners. I'm on KBoards.com with the same handle, though I don't spend a lot of time there any more as it's been (figuratively) taken over by e-book authors instead of e-book readers. I keep thinking about starting up a reading forum some day, with the goal of keeping it reader-centric, but, well, life. \_(ツ)_/

    I'll believe it when I see it. Hoping so!

    I'm also a member there, although I never really have occasion to do windows dev.

    OK I'm a member of Webdeveloper forum too and I see you over there too -- although it's quite a mess as well. This kind of consolidation is unsettling and I'm still fairly alarmed that forums like this are going away. Should we become friends on *gasp* social media or something?
