This forum will go dark on Black Friday in order to move the DB and site code into the cloud.

I assume nobody will miss it, since you will all be trampling other hapless shoppers in your enthusiastic pursuit of epic deals on fad-toy-du-jour, vacuum cleaners, ridiculously sized televisions, and buggy and overpriced game consoles. :lol:

Personally, I will do all my shopping online, though I do understand the visceral attraction of the traditional Black Friday undertaking. It's not unlike tracking and killing your dinner with your bare hands, while eliminating all your competition with equal ferocity and ensuring that your enemiesare crushed, seeing them driven before you, and hearing the lamentation of their lifepartners.

Stay safe out there! :mrgreen:

Holy shit that went smoothly! :shock:

Now if there's downtime, we can blame the hosting provider and not some damnable hard drive in my office choking and letting out it's magic smoke. :roll:
