Yes, if we can keep the existing database.

Yes, but I'd prefer to start absolutely fresh.

I may check in occasionally, but it really wouldn't be a major priority.

I still think that the PCF shut-down is an April Fool's joke.

Its sad that the forum is closing. This was my go too place if I had a technical question. Now I guess I would have to go elsewhere. As to iceblade question. My guess is that they were not making as much money as parent pcf uk would have liked.

Don't think they can use the pcf branding. Could copy it and replace branding with gear only brand but that is up to them.
