    With less than two days left I am wondering if there has been any movement on preserving the tF content?

    I am also wondering about the exact shut down time?   Midnight ?    30th/31st ?  or 31st/1st?  Pacific Time? etc.

Seth,

I'm happy to say that John has accepted my offer to assume the responsibilities for keeping the talkfestool forum live, so the content will be preserved online and accessible just as before. We're now sorting out the details of the transition so it goes as smoothly as possible to minimize any downtime.

I want to thank Paul for stepping up to the plate on this. I've got seven years of my life invested in talkFestool, and I'm thrilled that it has a chance to keep going.

Not to worry about a shut down time. I'm not going anywhere, I'll keep the forum going and work with Paul for as long as it takes him to feel comfortable with taking over.
John

Welcome to your new life, Paul!!! Seriously.

I am delighted that we won't lose access to the content over at tf and I'll try to be a more active and worthy participant than I have been so far...

Fantastic news, John. 

Happy to hear Tf (and you) are sticking around.

And thanks for Paul taking it over.
I assume this means you can focus more on getting your workshop operational now?! [popcorn]

Great news!  I have several half-finished projects that have been documented there over the past several years.  Maybe with the forum off his back, John will be able to finish his shop!   [big grin]  (Inside talkFestool joke...)

It's probably more accurate to say it will be taking over me.  [big grin]

Hi
 Well done to all those involved to sort this and have a direction for the current information. [smile]
When i first used Festool kit TF was one of the places i visited to gain some information.....and of course FOG.
