After spending much of the weekend+ at the hospital hoping they can work out what's wrong with two of my closest family members I come back to this.  Started well, went weird and 'ended' on a cryptic cliffhanger :confused:

Sounds like I'd may as well cancel my $5/mo though, could pay for an hour's parking...

You have to pay for parking?

Of course!  Medical care is free but parking at the hospital is the most expensive in town.  Wouldn't be so bad if the money went to the hospital but the car park is privately owned...  Needless to say I walk despite the crazy temperatures.

Anyway lets try and keep this thread on topic.

Sounds good, sell to china so they have to implement all their government rules as well as the great firewall stuff. Nothing to go wrong here, other than the fact that it would kill the forum and set the western mech community back 10 years. But hey, at least you got your money :thumb:

Yup, pretty much every board/keyset/whatever that is ran outside of KR and CN is ran through here. Handing us to china is a huge mistake and will most likely kill the site. A chinese vendor won't know how to handle this community effectively, CN and KR communities have for the most part remained largely secluded from geekhack. Like how would the mod team be affected, for instance? How will GB's and IC's be affected? At least store all relevant information in some archive for a future site to use.....

Holy **** what has this transaction turned into? I thought this was a done deal. First to 15k.

Now the site has been sold to a higher bidding party and Zeal is out?
