Does seem like anyone posts anything anymore, kind of depressing?

It looks like it has, I pop in now and again I've not seen any of the old crowd for ages in some cases it's probably years :(

WAIT WHAT???? I've just discovered that I have the ability to edit or delete other peoples posts which I've never been able to do before, I just deleted 11 spam posts. o_O

Shall we try to resurrect the site?
We didn't keep up with the evolving state of solid state, conventional computers hardly needed support as operating systems became more stable, what needed to be done if we were going to stay relevant was a migration into the handheld market.

We tried with our portable devices area but that wasn't enough, we needed some devs.

I think the biggest forums now are those supporting and developing android, I wasn't about to get into cooking roms but that's where we had to go if we wanted to stay ahead of the curve.

Resurrecting this site would mean finding the giving support to the next big thing first or close to first.

I have no idea what the next big thing in computing is though, unless we could steal away devs from xda we're going to have to figure out what's big next.

My prediction is cloud computing, I don't know if there are forums that give support to cloud computing, that might be interesting, helping people develop cloud programs, access, speed, etc, that might be something that would get traffic in the near future

I login once every couple months and lurk hard. :)

Gotta figure out a new niche to get things rocking again.

It's good to see the site is still up, think I've been back a couple times but nobody was around. Times change

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
