That would truly be unfortunate....
I contacted Rich awhile ago (through Andy) with an offer of financial support, and could extend that to hosting. I'd hate to see the site go the way of the dodo, if only because I really enjoy talking and getting the perspective on things that everyone has, from games and life in general all the way through to the dreaded R&P forum
(good to see ya here Eco
If anyone is interested, the offer still stands. I'd be happy to get my folks working on getting the forums back up and then rebuilding form the inside out, as it were.
