Yes, this is tsue. No, I didn't die. =)
As most all of you know, I have not been active with SourceKills for many years. I've kept it running (and still do) since it doesn't have any cost to me. However, this year is the year I'll be taking SourceKills offline.
Well mainly, security. I honestly don't keep an eye on things. As I can, I patch the forums to keep them secure from known exploits. That said, if someone punched a hole in here and got into everyone's data, chances are good it would take a long time to get noticed. Also, I mostly play DotA nowadays and very occasionally dip my toe into CS:S or CS:GO. I also picked up an Xbox One this Christmas season. =)
So to that end, I am locking the forums for now. I may re-open them if people want to get in touch with each other, but I'll list my contact info here. Feel free to reach out if you want to yell at me, wanted to talk, or whatever. It's all good. =)
I'll also pass out my Google Voice # to whoever wants it, but just email me to ask for it.
I really love what this community was, which is why I think moving the database/files into cold storage is probably the safer thing to do than just leaving it up until someone catches me sleeping and breaks in. There's no financial info here, but there are email addresses and the like. Just not worth it (IMO).
But honestly, I have nothing but great memories from y'all. I still have plenty of friends I talk to from this site, and I am sad that I've lost touch with so many of you. Again, feel free to reach out. And if you're ever in San Antonio, hit me up.
