Re: Off Topic - Before the List is Gone! NOTE: Not Gone, MOVED



**

Thank you Dan for all your efforts that you have put in to have this platform running for as long as it has, with as much efficiency and uptime as it has through the years with almost no interruptions.

 

I will certainly miss the ease though which this platform was accessible, but like you am hoping everything else remains the same on the new platform.

 

Joe

NOTE: On Friday Sept. 30th the plug will literally be pulled on the Servers this version of the list is running on. Please move over to the new home in Communities by then.

 

The ARSlist didn’t even start on listserv, it was another messaging software. I planned to make it a group on usenet, but the anarchist group in charge spent 9 months talking about where it should be in the structure (anyone familiar with Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and the marketing team arguing about what do people want from the wheel?)

 

For the past 14 years it has had a home in a machine room in downtown Toronto, on Servers I purchased (both replaced once). Those servers from 2009-2013 also helped us run the WWRUG events, so I could justify the expense.

 

Volume on the ARSlist is a quarter of what it was two years ago because the vast majority of posters are now on communities.

 

There is also now the new Developer’s site for the Innovation Suite, developers.bmc.com

 

We are all very busy, and there are too many places to go to find things. Now communities will get you to the ARSlist too. I have been promised non-censorship and non-interference.

 

So, same discussions, same people if we are all still interested, different location.

 

Note: I am not disappearing either, and I hope none of you do!

 

The care and feeding of this community has been a highlight of the past 23 years for me, and through it I have met, electronically and\or physically a really great group of people most of whom I think of as friends.

 

Times change, c’est la vie.

 

Now I just have to be a part of the Community, not build the platform the community lives on.

 

Cheers Dan

p.s. and yes, I prefer this platform to jive and Communities, it just isn’t the pragmatic one anymore, and I hope to influence the improvements in Communities to meet our needs

I totally reflect the sentiments of all of you. I heard of and started using the list a little after about a year or 2 after it was started and since then has been the best resource and online community I had the privilege of being a part of.. Thank you all and hopefully the BMC Communities will be a similar experience once I resume using it..

Thanks Claire.. 2AM.. I think that was me! You knew I would be flying back from my assignment in California and would check mail when I got home. Thank God, I new the answer!

 

The community of ITSM professionals is only about 2 degrees of separation for anyone. I'm sure we will see you around.

 

Times really are changing! First ARSlist moving and now I won't be able to make Engage this year. It will be the first Remedy included conference I have missed in 21 years!

 

We must all stay in touch. I have spoken LOL

This list has been one of the most valuable tools during my entire Remedy career. We have seen so many ups and downs in  that time period!  Personal and professional!  I know there are times I would not have been able to solve a problem quickly and accurately without it! 

 

1am?  5am?  2pm?  No problem.  The list and the amazing people that populated it were always there for me! Thank you! I will miss the list as much as I will miss Remedy.  There are so many people, I’m not going to/can’t list them all…

 

Phil, Dan, Pat, Rick, Michelle, Warren, Teresa, Misi, Doug M, Jarl, Gid, Joe, Jason, Doug B., Tauf, Kelly D, Roger, Herb, Roger, LJ, David and on and on and on! 

 

On August 29th (that is the planned date) we cut over to SNOW. 

 

I won’t be gone yet.  Remedy will still be around for at least a year.  Nothing new will be happening.  Just maintenance and archive mode!

 

Thank you all for being so fantastic!
