Yeah, I don't see the reason in switching honestly. Sure someone can go
start up something new, and tell all of us about it in a posting.

The reality is no one is actually going to "pull the plug" on this... So it
will still be around. If people keep using it, it will still be around, if
people migrate, than, well, that is what happens in evolution.

I would suggest if anyone wants to start something new, please do, please
have it up and running and let us know. Please call it something other
than Frameworks, so as not to confuse anyone.

I have an email account - which lets me read these emails, I have a vimeo
account which lets me link to videos, I don't have a facebook account, so
count me out of that group.
