Paul, will we be able to have access to the old forums, as many of the discussions there are of perennial interest?

Couldn't we just repeat the discussions periodically? We tend to do that, anyway. :-)

At least for now, the above link for Concertina.net Home Page gets to the old forum.

Well, no promises, but yes, now that I finally have this system up and running, I do want to try my best to import all those old threads into an archive forum here, which will be great because it'll also mean that they'll be automatically full-text searchable using this forum's search system. No timeline, but I am looking into it (have to make sure that I don't break things too badly in the new system by bulk-loading all the partial data from the old system, since usernames etc. won't match up...).
