microcogen.info
« on: July 18, 2019, 08:33:01 PM »
has been offline for a few weeks now, i haven't had much time to get it sorted.
today i finally got enough information from simplemachines and hostmonster to get it sorted out again.

i realize the microcogen forums are all but nearly dead, however there is in my opinion information from years ago
that might be of interest to others, so i will keep it going.

we resolved the issue, so it can now be accessed as usual, however i will have to do some upgrades over the next couple
weeks to get it completely done and available for however long there is interest.

not trying to take anything away from this forum,  just wanted to let folks know what happened over there.

back to the political grind

I did Notice that Bob but figured you'd be doing what you could about it.

There is an incredible amount of info there that is for sure. I wish I could download a copy of the whole site, it would be well worth having.

I have been documenting a couple of things I'm doing which fit the subject of that site more than this so I'll post there as I get something worthwhile.
It would be nice to see it getting going again but I notice so many DIY type forums are far less attended than they used to be, Even the ones I'm not on so it can't just be me keeping people away.  :0)

I go to engine shows and as a person in my Mid 50's, I usually feel like the young kid there.  I wonder if it was the same 30 years ago and this is just a " mature" persons interest or younger people used to like this stuff too back then ?

Thanks for keeping the site(s) going Bob. I am often amazed when I google some idea that there is a discussion about it from 10 years back and my idea was not nearly as original as I deluded myself.  :-[

Cheers for keeping us informed as to what could happen. It would be sad if it is lost as there are still a fair amount of shat going on and great help being offered to those who ask.
I go to many different Forum from tractors, trucks, stationary engines and here of course. One of them, the truck one, only last week notified the users of an upgrade about to happen. He posted a link to the newer version and asked us to try signing in and using it as a test. It worked out well so soon it will be the version to use and the old will be gone.
We hope that all this can be saved and thanks for having it available to us.
Cheers Cobba
