Is the old forum dead now
 
I unsucessfully tried to access the old forums at http://www.odcmp.org/new_forum .

It appears the old forum is down. Is this permanent now :(

This is the link I have to the old forum. It worked a few minutes ago but not now so it is probably undergoing some maintenance.

Yes it is 'Ghost' and thanks. Do you have any idea how long it will be left up?

Verified - Yes it is up AGAIN, at 8:10PM Mountain Time using this link. (Someone must be fooling with it - Down, Up, Down, Up).

I don't know much about these things but I have done a few tests. When the old forum is up and running, even though you cannot edit or make posts, you can search the data base and send e-mail to other subscribers. When it's down the massive amount of information that existed on that 'server?' does not exist. If it never comes back it is lost forever. While it's up you can find archived information by doing a Internet Explorer google search that includes "cmp forum". I have found having the old forum up and running to be very useful. There are few questions that have not already been asked and answered,
