The Forums are being upgraded…

The forums should be working. I’m still sorting through all the archives, but if you click on the main topics, you will be taken to the newest posts. If you only had a login for the forums, it should still work. If you had logins for both the main pipes.org site and the forums, you might have to go through the password retrieval process. Sorry for the pain all this causes, but we really couldn’t continued to run on the software we were using before. Thanks!

Welcome to the new(est) pipes.org!

This site has been around in one incarnation or another since September, 1994.  Originally, I did everything by hand, using only ‘vi’ and ‘make’ for Unix aficionados.  In circa 2004, I moved the site to a content management system (CMS) as the amount of data had grown to large for me to manage manually.  Well, that CMS is no longer actively used or supported, so I installed WordPress and am in the process of moving everything to it.  I’m hoping to expand the topics and contributions from you (there are over 5,000 registered users!)  So, please contribute where you can.  If there is something you’d like to see, let me know.  Thanks for all your support through the years!
