Forums moving!

Submitted by Adam R. Johnson, Harvey Mudd College
Dear VIPEr users:

Next week you will see some significant changes to the VIPEr Forums (https://www.ionicviper.org/forum).  We are reorganizing the many threads into a simpler format.  We will be moving all of the forum posts on Wednesday May 19th, and if all goes well, the new format will be live early in the morning of May 20th.

We will describe our new forum organization once we complete the move, but it would be helpful to not post any new forum topics or replies on Wednesday, May 19th.

Sincerely,
31 Mar 2010
