I love your new ideas for MO especially more video. Sounds like you have the vision thing sir.. I am excited to see the fruits of your labor.. P.S. I personally know how the migration of a web site can be tedious and time consuming.. Keep up the good work..

Nobody here at MO was going anywhere. This place is a lot like all the Hollweird morons that were leaving the country when Bush got elected. I know John Burns left for France, but the rest were all talking out their ass. I'm sure the new content will be worth the wait.

Migration can be a b*tch. My wife is an IT engineer for Turner Studios and they roll out a migration deal that she and her team have been working on since August of last year. Outside of the fact that data has to be transferred you have to also make sure command lines are right or things (in my wife's words) "puke" and go no further. Good luck and I can't wait for the changes to take place.

I've been here since the start, might as well stick around now I guess.



That migration thing is a pain too, we migrated from Canada to here when I was a kid, pain in the ass having to pack your sh*t up, plus the cat always runs off.

I now have two new babies, Buz! Funny thing is that I've actually put in more time with my MO baby than I have with my daughter! But I sneak away from the magic box long enough to realize I've been blessed.



Also, I'm thrilled to hear lots of positive comments on this thread. We know there'll be some of the MO faithful that will be reluctant to change, and I empathize with them. But MO really needed a redesign - for so many reasons - and so the old MO must be retired. Hell, it's about 18 years old, and its about time for it to fly the proverbial coop.



As for JB, I'd be over the moon if he could be a regular MO contributor. I shared the adjacent office with him when we were at Motorcyclist, which was a thrill because he was/is my fave motojournalist. But I fear that MO would have to take over the (Cycle) World before that happened. Whadda ya say, JB? You feel like working for free backpacks and faceshields again?

The ten years ive tuned in have been, at worst, entertaining. Not done enjoying 1.0, so 2.0 will be extra gravy for me... as ive also said before, the price to get this ride for a year is well under the total value. Java and reading our profound threads in the a.m. is worth well beyond $12.00.

Indeed, who else will put up with this lot?

Carry on.
