Happy Birthday HAIF!

Recommended Posts

Thanks! :blush: It's been a rather uneventful day, which I find as I get older, is a good thing. ;)

Now the countdown to Baby #2's grand entrance, sometime between Feb 26 and Mar 14. We'll see! :)

HAIF is seven years old now. To celebrate, I've gotten you all a present -- I've purchased the blog plug-in for HAIF so now every registered member of the forum will be able to have their own blog.

I have the software, but haven't installed it yet -- I'll probably do that tonight and you'll be able to blog on January 12th -- HAIF's birthday.

I think one is on order.

Shall We? It's a bit short notice, but perhaps in a week or two?

Wow, that's freaky. Is that left over from Tom Cruise's bash?

Haif has become imbedded in the psyche. It's like a state of mind like a... Margaritaville or Kokamo.

The 7 year itch maybe even.

Cheers! (Cin cin!) to the creators/members of Haif! :)

It was made for some guy named "Rob". That's the 2nd Royal Arch Cypher, for all you Masons keeping score at home.

There may be a slight delay in the installation of the blog software. I thought I was going to have the afternoon free, but I ended up busy. I'll try to do it tomorrow while I'm cooling my heels at the airport. Free wifi at PHX! Woo hoo!

The blog feature is active. I still have to tweak some settings, but it should be safe for people to start their own blogs now.

I would have been content with a new kitten, personally...but whatever. :huh:

Happy Birthday HAIF!

Thanks to our esteemed editor for seven years of growth, improvements and consistent maintenance.

I spend less and less time on the internet these days. My bank, email, facebook and HAIF garner most of my web time attention. I'm grateful for the hours of entertainment and information that HAIF provides.

This would not be possible without our editor's commitment to the site.

Thanks a million and best wishes for the future of the HAIF Community.

Keith

congrats and thanks, ed.

just curious and nostalgic, what happened to the old forum? i recall it crashing but did the posts survive?

As I recall few if any of the posts from the original HAIF survived. The second HAIF started as a clean slate.

Jeez, I can't believe I've been hanging around here 7 years!

The old forum was hacked. I ran across a backup of the old posts a couple of years ago. I actually went looking for it over the weekend hoping I could restore the posts as a text file, if nothing else. I'll look again today.

The reason I was looking for the backup was to corroborate an e-mail I found that references HAIF existing as early as 2000, which would make HAIF eight years old. The 2001 date in the domain registration may just reflect when I transferred to a new registrar. Although the dates are supposed to remain the same when this happens (and almost always does these days), back in the wild wild west days of 1999 that may not have been the case. Or not. Who knows?

HAI the website, or HAIF the forum? I'm almost sure the forum part is 7 years old now.

From what I remember, HAIF went online just a few days after HAI, but there was a dormant period before it was discovered and took off.

It is hard to believe but HAIF has been around for ten years now.

A big shout out to Editor for keeping the site running for all these years!

It sure has been a long time! The site has been through some good and bad times, but Editor has always maintained it very well! I am very proud to be a member!

I still remember when it was hacked a long time ago, and am thankful that it was brought back to life!
