LispForum looking for a long-term home

Folks, I have decided that I'd like to find LispForum a better home long term. I have it running on a shared hosting account at Ionos and the costs are extremely low (basically incrementally free with my account except for the yearly domain name registration). But I haven't been able to devote much time to it, including keep up with upgrades, etc. Send me a private message if your interested in taking over ownership. I'm happy to work with you to transfer the database and configurations as well as the domain name for no charge (you'll have to pay for ongoing domain name registration, however).

Hi Dave,
I am interested. It would be a shame to see a fine Lisp resource go to waste. You can send me an email alex@flyingcastle.net and we can talk more about it, or we can chat here of course.

I've had a few people reach out to me on continuing to host LispForum. Thank you all! I'm working with somebody right now and we'll see if we can't make the transition. Here's to continuing the LispForum tradition!

Quick update to everyone: the forum has been migrated to a new server (that I am running) for a couple of days now. There are still a couple small things to take care of but everything should be working fine. Let us know if you run into any issues!

My pleasure!

We had a few hours of downtime overnight as the domain transfer completed (1and1 apparently drops all DNS records after you move a domain). That should all be sorted out now. As always, let me know if you run into any issues!
