In an effort to get us back to discussion, I have created a new forum with similar structure at:

http://zaurus.freeforums.org

Don't want to start a food fight and not interested in competition, just tired of no discussion and no updates. You can also check out the discussion at Antikx site at:

http://www.tyrannozaurus.com

Have a good weekend.

I can't imagine how a new forum would help in this but... I'll try to keep in mind this new forums exists.

well, if this forum goes down again, perhaps we should simply jump ship to Linq's forum, and use Antikz's site to carry a snapshot of the old forum?

more thoughts...


I think the key is whether dz and the other admins give us some explanation. This forum is maybe the most important part of zaurus support/community, and whilst it's not life and death to us, the permanent loss of this forum would be take a long time to "heal" in that it would fragment the community badly until another forum gained momentum.

aye. I agree with speculatrix. While I admire and understand the effort/time/money that the admins put into the forums, these unfortunate downages have been rather frustrating to all of us here and a bit scary to those who are really scared by the recent death of the zaurus line.

Uh yeah. I have a feeling you will get no explanation and yet folks will stay anyway. I will watch the new forum a while, but if it is not going to be used, I am not going to fool with approving users, etc. I will give it a month and if not used, I will kill it. Won't hurt my feelings, I have plenty to do. Oh well. We'll see.

I think I've read some explanation about last problem. Something about a hardware failure in the server. In my first post I just launch the question that came to me while reading the text I quoted. Your forum is welcome... but, if you tell me you'll kill it for such a reason, I'm not sure if it's on the same "no explanations" argument.

Not sure I understand your point, but welcome to the forum, I processed your registration. Bottom line, if folks use it, it will be there.
