"... be nice if we could revive the old idea of DC "columnists" who would each write...".
Monthly would even be welcome.
I really need to check in more often.

Congrats mouser and everyone, looking good!
One bug I found: clicking the "DonationCoder.com" image header on the top left of forum pages gives a 404-wysiwyg125 (January 16, 2018, 04:27 PM)
Do we have a new favicon? In my memory it was more blueish, but now it's more green/yellowish. I think I (still) like it
The ssl 'lock' on my Firefox is 'complaining' that some parts of the site aren't secure, like images (browser UI talks Dutch to me, so I'm sort of translating on the fly), some configuration issue? I seem to remember that after the last server move there was something similar, and mouser fixed it pretty quick, AFAIR.-Ath (January 16, 2018, 02:00 PM)
No bugs found so far, but even on the old, slow laptop I'm on now, the site is blazingly fast. Wow!-Ath (January 16, 2018, 01:47 PM)
Almost 11 years after we created CodePlex, it’s time to say goodbye. We launched CodePlex in 2006 because we, like others in the industry, saw a need for a great place to share software. Over the years, we’ve seen a lot of amazing options come and go but at this point, GitHub is the de facto place for open source sharing and most open source projects have migrated there.
We migrated too. As many of you know, Microsoft has invested in Visual Studio Team Services as our “One Engineering System” for proprietary projects, and we’ve exposed many of our key open source projects on GitHub (Visual Studio Code, TypeScript, .NET, the Cognitive Toolkit, and more). In fact, our GitHub organization now has more than 16,000 open source contributors – more than any other organization – and we’re proud to partner closely with GitHub to promote open source.
Meltdown and Spectre
Bugs in modern computers leak passwords and sensitive data.
Meltdown and Spectre exploit critical vulnerabilities in modern processors. These hardware bugs allow programs to steal data which is currently processed on the computer. While programs are typically not permitted to read data from other programs, a malicious program can exploit Meltdown and Spectre to get hold of secrets stored in the memory of other running programs. This might include your passwords stored in a password manager or browser, your personal photos, emails, instant messages and even business-critical documents.
Meltdown and Spectre work on personal computers, mobile devices, and in the cloud. Depending on the cloud provider's infrastructure, it might be possible to steal data from other customers.
