To make a long story short; yes it's feels great to have the site up and running again. But, there are still quite a lot of recovery of old data to be done which we'll be working to re-import old data. Down side this will take some time and efforts; upside we can make some re-arragenement of data and make some major upgrades and pick new components to make use of which Martin is in the lead of handling.

Maybe you could do the same as they did over at Mobile Read with the old Entourage Edge forum.  Just import what you can recover into something called 'old forum' for example and let everyone that wants to just pick it over.

Very, very glad to see it back in service.  Those who work like this to keep the OS/2 venue still of focus are treasures of folks.  Sincerely, very few people of all the collection of computer folks really know how important the OS/2 venue still is.  It's sort of like the song Vincent.

"We" here still paint it like the Artist's loving hand.  And in the end, none of us who do want to pass on knowing that the all the other's don't ever understand .. and perhaps they never will... And all we OS/2 folks who do know about it just seem to suffer for our sanity.

Yes, I was in the room when Charlie sang that song for the first time in a small Holiday Inn meeting room in Hampton, Iowa.  And no, I don't want the 'music' to die any more than you do Martin.  Even though I do know exactly how it did die and why that Beech Bonanza did go down that day in Iowa.  Because yet another 'technology feller' pilot didn't understand what was really necessary to carry us all up further.  When he didn't really understand how to use the simple instruments whose 'operating system' was telling him something right.  But his short cut visual horizon screen was busted and he got sucked into that 'visual virus' and killed everyone on that takeoff that day.

Blessings to you Martin and all of you for the year to come yet, grin!
