Welcome to IWETHEY!

New My last hangout
There were also a motorcycle site and an astronomy group (for those trying keep their Meade LX3, 5 & 6 telescopes ticking over).

I was the one to turn off the lights on the MC site, some years after Honda scrapped the model. The Meade group went belly up after Verizon buried Yahoo Groups.


The cost of FB is too high for me to go there for any reason. If this group quits, I'll have to find something else to do with my time. But until then, it will remain my first and last port of call for the day.
New Re: The Meade group went belly up after Verizon buried Yahoo Groups.
The same happened to the South East (US) area of "Lazy Daze" brand motor home owner group that I belonged to.

But, I restarted the group at https://groups.io/ but only a fraction of people moved on to it. There is also an FB version of the group that I have nothing to do with.

New Were you able to point to the new board from the old one?
If not, there's no way most of them would ever know it exists.

New I started the new one before the old one vanished.
So I was able to send out messages to direct folks to the new site.

Also, I moved many files to the new site. But, it did not make much sense to move messages.

New Deja vu
The Meade group ended up on groups.io as well but we lost the file store. That put a serious crimp in the ability to help out new members. There was some effort to keep things going but traffic is pretty much 0 now.

Anything that takes 8 minutes to get from 55 to 65 MPH is a good starter vehicle.
