I feel he should be commemorated somehow.

The Stainless memorial.

Yes the rest of the money should go towards hiring Prosper to make a 3D model of Stainless, then build a statue based on the model to replace the Statue of Liberty. It would be holding a torch as well but it would have the biggest lasers anyone has ever seen, blinding everyone within a 200 mile radius. The Eighth Wonder of the World.

or maybe the new address could be duckandcover.stainless

I joined DAC 20-odd years ago and been a pretty shithouse contributor over the last 10 or so. Probably long overdue to slap that donate button.

Quick update: I've bought the licence for the new forum software and have arranged for the data migration from this old software to the new. Waiting to hear back from the guy who'll be performing the import to XenForo when he's going to have the time to do it, but it should go pretty fast after that. Probably in the next few days. I'll close the old forums down when the migration starts and likely won't reopen them; the next time you'll be posting will be on the new forums if all goes according to plan.

I'll post notices on the old forums when it's time.

I just realized that I posted three times in a row instead of editing that single post. How embarrassing.

Don't worry, the new XenForo social media platform isn't designed for posting at all, you can only downvote old posts and watch MR Snake livestream

Anybody in favor of getting hold of Cakester and let him make some awesome art for the new site? Pay him the 400!

The guy scheduled to do the import hasn't responded to my last couple of messages, but since it's the holiday season I didn't expect much this week anyway.

OK, so the forum transition should be happening in a week or so. Bad news about the domain, however, as the registrar is still down and none of the CX "authorities" are responding to e-mails about it. So we'll likely have to pick a new domain. I'll make a poll about it when the time comes.

One of the more common TLDs with a normal renewal price, definitely.

but a more expensive one would radiate glamour and luxurious pizzazz, like a 8 million watt neon sign screaming "this is a very good website" at your flabbergasted face. I think it would be better to go for the most expensive option and let DAC go bankrupt in a year; this forum is at its very peak now so better go out with a bang before things slow down to say 5 semi-regular posters.
