Also I hope it'll stay online for a long time, as when sites/forums disappear they can take a lot of usefull information or discussions with them. This way the AMOS factory also lost many discussions/posts due to new incarnations of the site/forums. Which is funny because the posts from the AMOS emailing lists which existed before the forums (since 1993) are all archived on Aminet and will never be lost. (funny to read back my old posts there from '93 :P). Maybe it's an idea to have exports/archives of discussions uploaded to Aminet every now and then to preserve knowledge?
(it was also one of the reasons I requested the release of the AMOSPro sourcecodes, since I knew Francois Lionet already lost all the sourcecodes himself)
I plan to stay it online for a long time.
the problem with forum-software is (when you change it) that the databases are all specific and propably not very good documented so when you want to take over the data from one system to another you must have someone who knows both and how the data are organized (propably in reality not the case). So by changing the system you loose all data. I will try to save some of the threads from utilitybase in my site.
