I only see the 2 threads that Chris(B) deleted in the Cafe PowerBASIC forum.  Where are you thinking others were, that he deleted?

Yes i can confirm this.

It is like when a big storm has devasted your home, and you don't know if you must repare it, or clear everything and build a new one from scratch.

One year after the death of Bob Zale, those who took the right decision are seeing the end of the tunnel, while others are now at the bottom of the pit.

We could send a rope to those wanting to escape, but we can't force others to take it.

Odd, the 'special' german forum (kirschbaum-software) is ended in the beginning of 2013.
Wonder about the exact reasons..

Edwin!
Thanks for the link

But OMG!  It looks like I've got a title  -  "von Gary Beene"! 

Is that good?

Sorry, but no. It should be Gary von Beene to be a title :)

I guess I can tell you the reason for this. A few weeks ago I asked Mr. Kirschbaum why the forum is down. He told me that he has experienced technical problems with the forums software and that there were some problems with data security. He also mentioned that he has doubts concerning the future of PowerBasic. But still, so Mr. Kirschbaum, the current compilers are good enough so that they can be used for the near future.

I hope my English is good enough.

I may be mistaken but Chris' forum appears to have been vacuumed... Many of his recent PowerBASIC threads seem to have disappeared. Can anyone confirm I am not imagining this?

Marc
I do like the post he replaced them with.

We seem to have lost the PowerBASIC site again

PB will be up again in about nine hours or so when they roll into work.

It could have been worse, it could have gone down on Saturday afternoon in which case we would have to wait until Monday morning.

According to Eric's post it was the anniversary of Bob's death, so perhaps the servers took the day off in remembrance.
