Hi everyone

I think the forum has run its course and there is no longer a need or demand for it.

I've taken the very difficult decision to shut down, when the domain renewal is due it will not be renewed.

Thank you to everyone who has assisted in running CC and to everyone who has participated.

I'm gonna miss you, you know.

Maybe over at TT, ay?

When's the renewal due, Cally?

It was sad, when Tiggy, Michelle and those kinda vanished. Sad

Sad day.

The renewal is January 2014

I'm only on the net at work and usually for a couple of hours on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Once CC closes I do intend to pop in and annoy everyone over on TT  goofy wink

Sad news, Cally, but not unexpected - it's a sign of the times, I suppose.  You can always be well satisfied that you had a good run while it lasted, and there'll be many like me who'll be grateful to you for the happy times we had on here.

I know there's 6 months before the curtain falls and, like Kat says, there's always a chance the Corner's posters will fall across one another in other forums but, to you and them, I'd like to wish all the very best, wherever they go and whatever they do.

Yup, we did have a good run, but times do change and people move on.

OL is still around and if anyone needs computer help I am still at Spykiller

It is a shame Barry, but life moves on & forums generally have dropped from popularity, except those on specialist topics or support 
It is only the same few at OL and new members are few

I will keep an eye on it for you & get rid of the spammers who sign up & update any vital security updates to SMF

Sadly, I don't think I could bring myself to visit Tululaland, again, derek.

The problem with a forum, is that new members often feel as though they're kinda aliens, when they join, because the members often know each-other and have in-jokes and things that noobs can't join-in with.

Costs are not a problem. Most people have moved on and I'm not online so much these days.

I'm just going to let things roll along and see what happens...

Sorry to hear that but it's true, this place is a lot quieter now than it used to be.

But Jan 2014 is a long way off and if the Mayans were right we don't need to think that far ahead.

I beg to differ.....

Quote
The calendar used by the ancient Maya civilisation does not predict the end of the world in December 2012 as some believe, according to experts.

A new reading of a Maya tablet mentioning the 2012 date suggests that it refers to the end of an era in the calendar, and not an apocalypse.

It must be right, its on the BBC  whisper

The way things are going, though, we might just make that prediction come true.

The largest cycle is 26000 years. The cycle ends on Dec something 2012. After that...no more calendar. Thus provides a brief synopsis of the situation.

When your calendar runs out does time end? No, you just buy the next year's calendar.

It's difficult to have conversations, now. Seems, to me, that some people are too easy to offend.

So, I don't even try, now, sadly.

Hi clive, good to see you are still around. As for closing, it's just a thought at the moment.

I really have cut back on forum stuff, of late, though.

People get offended by such trivial things, nowadays.

Mayan calender? Load of crap!
They did not take leap years in to account and therefore according to them the world should have ended ages ago.

Actually, a lot's been made of the Mayan calendar, about this.

But, it's not just that. There's quite a bit of other stuff that's pointing to it, too.
