Just curious, would any of the senior staff be willing to meet up with me in Munich, Germany in order to verify that I'm a real person?

I guess I could, technically, but I'm not sure I want to take vacation for that.

But I think all of our staff is located overseas.

It would not matter if you are real or not. We have a year to find someone capable of running the great machinery that is hidden behind the curtain of death. We are not handing over control of all our wizardry to a newb. But thanks for the offer to help.

No worries, I understand. It's just that when I originally read the thread, I saw nobody stepping up to the plate and figured I'd offer to take over rather than see the forum shut down. The final decision about who it will be handed over is of course in your hands.

P.S.: I may be a newb on the forum, but the same can't be said for my expertise in all things IT. Just FYI. :-P

It not only has to do with capability, but also our trust in that person and their integrity.

My concern is, if the server is outside the EU, but managed by someone in the EU, does it fall under Article 11 and Article 13.  Basically that would require self castration ... and feminist victory.

The forum could always be migrated to a server in the EU, couldn't it?

HofbrΓ€uhaus MΓΌnchen! Halkenburg is buying.

Seriously though I haven't been to Munich since probably before you were born. I probably won't be back before I'm dead.

I have seen it ten years ago, it was intact. :p By the way, time really does fly. *Whistles.

It only has to do with capability, but also our trust in that person and their integrity.

In regards to that, Hal, feel free to upload an avatar, man.

Sorry for responding to this part again, but I would just like to clarify that I have over 5 years of experience working as Linux Systems Administrator, have hosted my own forum before complete with HTTPS and various other security mechanisms and have my own server in a data center that I practice enterprise technologies on every single day. I live and breath this stuff and it's my life's passion to learn more about technology. I'm a very qualified professional, so at least in my case, whether or not I would be accepted would not be a matter of qualification, but of trust/integrity like You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login said earlier. That is why I offered to meet in person, to put my identity on the line and as a gesture of good will. I want you to know that I take this very seriously and that I would be committed to ensuring a smooth transition based on mutual trust.

I don't mind at all if you decide to hand over the reigns to someone else (it's not my forum, after all) but I wanted to give you the courtesy of providing you with the information you need to make an informed decision about that. I hope you can appreciate that.

So would the server be more free of interference if based in Europe or the US?  Or are we a dying breed, since everyone will follow "capitalism with Chinese characteristics".

It would be far more free from interference if it were based in Europe, you have my word as an industry professional on that.

What can I say? The prospect of being able to turn a plaintext forum into the digital equivalent of Fort Knox (HTTPS, DNSSEC, CSP, OCSP Stapling, etc.) is a computer geek's wet dream. I would have a lot of fun making this site run as fast, stable and securely as possible.
