Tigerlilly don't be such a doom monger. This site will close down when I die and not a moment before. So don't even worry about THAT. It's been online since December 1997 and is my second child.
As Mz Sheel and Informed Investor pointed out, websites are cyclical. People come and go, find new things to do with their time, maybe cycle back. They get married, they have children that tie up their time, they get new jobs that take up their time, etc. Life happens and people come and go. It's been that way for the past 11 years.
I've been going through a lot of things myself - legal issues - which are not done yet and which are draining me emotionally and mentally. So I haven't been as focused on site maintenance and development as I was last summer. For example, I have a half-finished new template for a redesign. Not sure when THAT is gonna happen!! lol
But I want everyone to know how much I appreciate the fact that you still pop in. I think I'll create a widget to put some of the latest thread titles on the home page and invite people to join the discussion forums. I'll do that right now.
Welcome back Sheel!!
