Ned,

Almost ALL Computer forums are dying a very slow death. With the advent of IPADS/Tablets/Phones, computers are dying breed. This is very noticeable here at CTH, as you point out many mods have either died or moved on, only a few of us left. The owner of this site will probably eventually just shut it down as it is no longer cost effective to maintain. If you look around at the most active computer sites, they are dying also. For an example:

Virtual DR: Which I modded for many years, very few members posting there
Bleeping Computer: Is still doing well
Tom's Hardware: Still doing well

It's a shame for those folks that still use and rely on computers, I am only speculating but most of these sites are ad generated revenue, but commercial enterprises are throwing there ads at sites dealing with Ipad/Tablets/Phones not computers.
