Hail to the almighty hutch--.  Thank you.

What would we do with our spare time otherwise?  :P

hutch--

    The thought crosses my mind from time to time and I was wondering (as well as many other members, I'm sure), are there any contingency plans to keep this forum, as well  as the masm project running long-term?

Any thoughts of collaboration with anyone to carry on with this great community? The thought must have crossed your mind as well, seeing how you have been at it for so long.

Probably, you should have renewed for 5 years to give members more confidence in the forum continuity.  :biggrin:

No, it already has run long term.

> Any thoughts of collaboration with anyone to carry on with this great community?
No. Everything come to an end but I am disgustingly healthy and should outlast x86 but the sheer mechanics of transferring a project/forum of this type would be so unwieldy that it would not work. The legacy of a project of this type and even the forum is the number of people who know how to write high quality code that found it useful.

Unfortunate, but probably inevitable at some point - logistics and all...

ASM coders are a dying breed of sorts, the last of their kind.   :(

At least we're still here for another year!  Thanks again, hutch.

Don't be so pessimistic. The April '18 Tiobe index says our breed is almost as popular as Visual Basic, and ahead of Swift, Perl, Lisp, Cobol, Fortran, Haskell and a few others :t

Many thanks Hutch.  :t
Creative coders use backward thinking techniques as a strategy.
