Welcome to the new server!

Hey all! If you are reading this, your DNS has updated and you are now seeing the new "home" of the Nest. It's on a brand new, dedicated server and we have made the upgrade from an old 3.0.x version of phpBB to the latest 3.2.x version. With that, I know the theme is a little different - it's the de...

Re: What happened to the Nest?

Thanks all! I know I'm a pretty private person - and when things start to be stressful, I tend to isolate myself even further than normal... Anyway, just a quick update - I've gotten the new server up and running, and I'm doing some last testing around it to make sure everything looks good. Once I'm...

Re: What happened to the Nest?

Hey guys - yeah, I still exist. The last few years have been a crazy roller coaster for me both in professional and personal sides of life (long story, and still ongoing on both counts). I know I haven't been around here at all - completely MIA really. Project Blue Bird feels the same pain - I haven...

Re: Malware messages

It's a symptom of being on a shared server. Another site on the same server (and same IP) had a compromise. While we've cleaned up the issue, and made some more advanced security changes, it's probably going to be a bit before some of the malware detection groups identify that everything is fine, an...

Re: The Future of the Road Runner Nest

Good news! They have officially released version 4.0 of the IPB software! We are just now waiting on the converters to be ready, and then I'll be doing some quick testing and making the actual conversion.

We are close!

Re: The Future of the Road Runner Nest

Just so everybody can see that this rumored "new site" isn't vaporware, I'll share the link to it. Note that I have registrations turned off so as to eliminate confusion, but I've been working on the Tech Archive, Image Gallery, and yes there are even a couple first blog posts on a project blog for ...

Re: The Future of the Road Runner Nest

A quick update for everybody on the progress towards the new community software: It's looking like the final release if IPS 4.0 will be soon (within the next couple weeks), so we feel like the right answer is to hold off on launching until we can do the conversion of all the threads and everything h...

Re: The Future of the Road Runner Nest

As far as image size, I've got it set right now to only allow 4MB files max. We do have disk space limits to consider, but 4MB *per file* should be good to start, and there is a good bit of space on the drive that we can fill up. :)

Re: The Future of the Road Runner Nest

Everyone, I have to say that I'm sorry this has been so long in coming. When I kicked this whole thing off last year, I fully expected to have the time to grind through the setup and have the conversion to the new software done pretty quickly. Well, as luck would have it just after getting things mo...

Re: The Future of the Road Runner Nest

Hey all! Wanted to take a quick moment and update everyone on the status of things. First, thanks to everyone who contributed! The new software has been purchased, and we are working on getting things setup. There's still a good bit more work to do, but trust me - this will be worth it! There is goi...

Re: The Future of the Road Runner Nest

I want to thank everybody who's made a contribution towards the new software! The support for the community is really appreciated by Bruce, Eric, and me. As a quick update, the planning for how exactly we'll do the configuration and migration is in process. There are obviously a lot of moving parts ...

Re: The Future of the Road Runner Nest

A couple quick updates: We've pretty much made the decision on the new software to power the site. I'm excited for all the functionality it will bring! As promised earlier, it will include the return of the image gallery (this time open for community contributions), a much more robust system to supp...

Membership Support of the Nest

First, I want to thank the membership that has expressed their willingness to financially support the Road Runner Nest. I'm very excited for this new phase of the Nest as it's going to be the realization of much of the vision that we've had for the community for quite some time. In the spirit of tra...

Re: The Future of the Road Runner Nest

Yes, there has been a trend of corporate acquisition of car forums. As a business owner, I can completely see how that makes sense from a marketing perspective. I did receive an inquiry about selling the Nest a while back actually. I never even mentioned it to Bruce or Eric since I had absolutely no...
