I noticed that the forum page set up for mr. Nixie support was removed...

I actually had a new thread to start about a power supply problem that he helped me fix...

is it gone? will it be back?

edit....
this will teach me to type out new threads on my cell phone while at work..

the topic should have been...mr.Nixie support... not me noxie support

You know that Jürgen comes and goes, blows hot and cold, is active and then isn't. I think it depends on the amount of alcohol that he has been around. I think he'd had a particularly heavy weekend and then he got all funny with me. He copied in Pete Virica for some unfathomable reason, as if he wanted someone to agree with him.

I suggested to him to set up a support page, he agreed, I set the forum up for him, and did a little bit of management for it. But a forum causes spam, and has a bit of maintenance involved with it. He was annoyed because he was getting the notifications and then threatened to "call me a Nerd" on Facebook. You can imagine that I was trembling in by shoes. Firstly I am a nerd, and secondly I couldn't care less what people say about me. Thirdly, Facebook is the sort of place that I see as the badlands of the Internet and don't really consider as reality.

Whatever.

The short of it is that I want this to be a reputable place for people to come, and I haven't got the time or the will to deal with the antics that come with Jürgen.

He won't be back.

I would be happy to host a site for his work, but it would be community driven, which I'm not sure really hits the spot.

Was it anything like this?

Numiqueen Failure

The power supply is a special thing, and I think there is/was a sourcing problem on them.
