It's been a good run, 12 years, but with negligible traffic I think it's time to admit that the forum has finally come to the end its useful life.

I'm proposing to keep it around as an archive for a while, so that people can still get inspiration etc. but not to have it as an active thing.

I'm open to other suggestions...

Unfortunately, I do not really have suggestions to make.

It has been a honour contributing my tiny bits to this place, I have learned a lot here and managed to build some machines that really made my drawing life a lot better and easier.

I hope the forum will survive at least as an archive, as I am not done completely with building these things and it still has information I may need.

But that is, admittedly, me being selfish and greedy.

It does seem a sad thing, and it's been a LONG time since I was on the forum, but I simply do not have time to work on these kinds of projects anymore. That said, I do still hope to complete the Serenitiq2 Build at some point, even just to see it through to a conclusion.

Perhaps this kind of MacGyver style of building things is a dying art, what with the cost of consumable electronics coming down, and the general 'throw away' attitude that exists these days. It is a real shame though since everything I've learnt from this forum, the confidence I developed messing with all this stuff, and the inspiration I've obtained over the years is invaluable. I thank everyone that has had anything to do with the forum, and I especially thank Drewid for being the pioneer and creator of this forum in the first place.

I might be back again, if Bongofish is still here and I get some time to continue working on S2, but if not, it's been great!

Cheers everyone!  Cheesy
