Hey man! Good to hear from you. Don't worry about the sigs. Don't worry about anything. I don't really need that stuff.

I have been up to lots. I have a 1 year old baby girl named "Ethereal Raven Duggan". Yeah a bit of a hippie name but I was going for something that hopefully other kids didn't have...at least for a bit. Unfortunately some people like her name too much and want to steal it. We call her "Ethie" for short. She is as smart as a whip and started walking at 9 months, then moved on to climbing. Her mom is a circus trainer so she is pretty well coordinated for a 1 year old.
By the way she was born at home on the living room floor (not on purpose) but everything went great. Happy and healthy mommy and baby.

How are you?

Wow congrats! I'm doing great, I'm on my 10th year of working full time now for the phone company at the NOC (worked IT for a few years first), and had a house for around 7? years. I lost track. Time goes crazy fast these days. But pretty much same old.

Lots of projects I want to work on, so little time and motivation. Razz

Yeah I remember you and I bought our homes right around the same time. I was following your blog when you were renovating the house and setting up servers in a section of your house that...was not previously used for computer equipment and servers....

I'm at my same job going on 13 years now, moved up to general manager. More responsibility with...more responsibility.

If you get the anything forums (or a version of it) up and going again, is there any of the old crew that will actually be around or even in the know to be active on the boards?

Yeah I'm hoping that the old crew eventually shows up. I will keep all links active so it goes to the new forum. There will be a password reset feature to get your old account back.

I slacked way too long though, I really should have done this sooner. Most people probably moved on by now, and forums in general are dying. Like even the big ones don't have as many posts as before, due to social media and stuff.

Just a quick update, I am working on a completely unrelated project, but some of the code will actually be reusable for the back end of the forum authentication system. I still want to create a separate auth system for the forum so that it can be used for other stuff such as the shard itself, the uogateway shard submission system, and future stuff such as a wiki. The idea is that any system I impliment will have a single login. It will make it easier for everyone.

So while not much progress has been made on the forums as of late, I have not forgotten about this.

I sometimes wonder if I have ADD. Seriously, lol. I'm bad for getting side tracked from big projects.

In fact I'm writing this post when I should be working on something else. Razz

In reality why would you waste time on The AF? It would probably only be me and you replying to one another once every other year...and we already do that here. So.. really.. this is The AF now.

Haha that's kinda why I have not been really putting much time into it tbh. I don't know how much traffic there really will be so kinda lack motivation. But I do want to get it done.

I do hope that some of the old folk do happen to come back once it's done but it's been years since it's been down now.

I also want to figure out a new direction for Iceteks, as it surprisingly generates some traffic even in it's dead state so having the forum back up will help.

So I'm wanting to finish this once and for all this year. Starting pretty much right away. I have a stretch of time off in a few days so will start then hopefully.

Firstly I want to look at using SSL for most of my sites including the forum, so that will be the first step, as it will give me a chance to see if I run into any issues before forum go live.

I still need to decide what direction I want to bring Iceteks but that will be a later phase. For now I just want to bring the forum back with all the posts etc.

This particular forum, and UO Gateway will also be combined into that forum. Accounts and such will remain as is, as per original plan but it will require a password reset.

Very cool. I hope all goes well. I hope some of the old folks show up and say hi...but how would they know? Wouldn't they have to be checking back now and then like you and I? If so they would end up chatting here eventually, you'd think...but there is no one else here...

Speaking of people appearing from nothing...I have a new baby coming any day now, basically. My wife's due date is Jan. 26th. So...I have a 9 year old step son (that's been with me since he was 4), a 2 year old daughter and a baby boy coming soon. Wow. Life sure sneaks up on ya Smile

I'll probably end up sending a mass email, and see how that goes.

Congrats on the upcoming baby!

Been working on the account management system. Keeping it simple for now, the only reason I'm even doing an account management system is that I just want a 1 stop shop for any other systems I create where it requires a login. I want 1 login to work for everything. Easier for users and easier for me (stopping spammers etc).

Once I feel the basic account functions work (creation, password reset, email change, that kind of thing) then I will proceed with the linking system, where various web apps can authenticate with the system via https. This should not be too complicated. At this point I just need to test everything, then tweak the forum migration script, and we should be ready to go!

Given my prediction is that the forum stays pretty dead my motivation level has been pretty low but at the same time I kinda want to get it done and hope some old timers come back.

The forum will also act as a place for myself to post and update on various projects. A blog, if you will.

Once this is done, and proven I plan to move on to other projects. I feel every time I want to start a project I have this lingering thing in the back of my head telling me "but you should be working on the forum!" And instead I just end up browsing Reddit all day. Razz
