Hello everyone,

Main issues for me are ongoing data protection, and the fact that the Perl version on the web server gets patched occasionally and actually it's a miracle the forum still works at all! Our super ISP kindly rolled back a server update specially for us, in order to keep the forum going. But there's no doubt that eventually something will break somewhere. The software is unsupported and will never be updated.

The very low volumes of traffic will make it non-viable to continue as-is, but I'd like to try steering users over to a new forum, or a closed (members only) moderated Facebook group is a possibility.

I appreciated the nice comments about the EPE web site and forum, thank you everyone.
