Is this it?
We've had a five weeks combined outage at this point, and now chat is apparently down too. Nobody knows whether it's for real this time, and quite possible we'll never get a definite word on that matter. However, it's becoming increasingly obvious that exiled Plasticians everywhere need to start thinking seriously about a Plan B. Everyone can't just hang around this lowly blog forever. I can't think of anything more depressing than us having the same discussions about when the servers are going to be back up in etc. in half a year from now.
So let's assume, for the sake of discussion, that Carl came down from the heavenly server room where we like to believe he spends his time and said once and for all that he's pulled the plug, won't relaunch the site in some other shape, and won't give away the code, ever. Then what?
