How reliable is that counter?...
« on: May 11, 2020, 01:21:08 am »
It shows 60 guests.
Just picked at a random time, that doesn't look too bad, indicating some interest in Vector is still existing.

If it picks up(see the thread about Vector's future) I'll need to update my avatar...

Bots, search engines, etc. are all counted as "guests" when it hits the site.

So it's dead.
Too bad.
No sense dwelling on it then.

Unfortunately that appears to be the case.  The forum had more activity in the
last 40 days than the last 2 years. The irc channel is also empty. There has been
attempts to get new developers involved without success. The old tool chain for
doing builds is lacking in updates as well.
