Hi Andy, It's great to hear from you.
I guess it was foreseeable that putting the forum on this server might lead to access issues from workplaces; more-so than if it had stayed put.
Even so, it never really crossed my mind.
It sounds very much as though you've had a very similar year to a lot people that I know; at work and at home.
This year has been a big shake-up and I'm hopeful as well that 2019 will bring closure to it all.
As I was saying to Vanessa, the other day, this site will be around for a long time yet.
I think that it's important that we keep going what Star Fleet sites are left. The TV show and the game and all our discssions, as well as other, related projects deserve that, in my opinion.
Facebook and the like is very convenient. The content has a way of finding the visitor, rather than the other way around.
The downside though is that the content and navigation has very little permanence. Once it's been displayed, it can be difficult to find it after days and weeks have passed.
Aside from that, I don't find any of these big internet companies to be trustworthy and if you run into trouble and your data vanishes, who do you talk to?
Dream big and bold and daring.
