I have had no communication with Kelpfries since November 2005, although i have tried to contact him via voice, and e-mail.
I did my best to keep Microbeta running as long as i could without alarming the Members or other staff, but i had a feeling that at the end of the servers contract, the plug was going to be pulled. As for the domain name, it was auto renewed and i have no access to it.
I lost access to the Site FTP around March, for some reason it would no longer accept my password and I was no longer able to update the Monthly desktops so that is why i switched it to "recent" desktops. That way i could control it from Vnews.
For those of you that saw kelpfries on the site, he was not on, that was me. There were certain admin functions that needed to be taken care of through his account.
It had crossed my mind before i lost FTP control, to backup the site in full, and the database in case this happened, but Microbeta is not my site, and i feel it best after all Microbeta had been through, good and bad, if it did go down, I was going to let it Rest In Peace. If Kelpfries decides to bring it back, more power to him.
I do want to apologise for not being able to keep the site up longer, but i just didn't have the recources or access available to me anymore, and again i didnt want to start an uproar, or have members leave because an end might be in sight. I really had no idea how long Microbeta would keep running
With that said, If you know any members over at Microbeta, please feel free to point them to this thread for an explination of the fate of Microbeta. Please do not "cut and paste" it on other sites.
Although x64bit.net is not Microbeta, nor do we want to be, we welcome all Microbeta members to come and join in on our forums, our name says x64, we have something for everyone. If you know any members, please feel free to invite them.
For my last task of being Admin of Microbeta, I would ask everyone to please think of all the good times Microbeta gave you, and with one last request, please do not pick it apart now that its gone.
Thanks to all the members of Microbeta who made my Admin Position and enjoyable one there!
~edit~ I almost forgot, - Thank you all the staff members who served with me, for the time and dedication you gave myself and Microbeta, I would happily work with you again, anytime! Thank you!
