I already told you that I got tired of the site moving around again
and again, and in most unreliable ways, after every move any links to
any page in the old site will break, for 100th time, and it was me
(and others like me) that had to go around fixing all the damned links
(there are still *hundreds* of links out there to various long gone
wmii sites).

So as I already told you if you are going to mess around
once more, I'm moving the wmii website to instead where
I will personally make sure it doesn't move again (and the urls stay
sane and stable). If we are going to break things one more time, lets
at least make sure it is for good, and unfortunately your track record
speaks strongly against trusting you to get this right (my blood still
boils when I think of how you messed up

The switch is obviously not complete yet, and any comments,
suggestions and corrections related to the new site are welcome.

A temporary limitation is that is not yet a wiki, but
nobody was working on the old wiki anyway, and most of it was in need
of some serious updating. will eventually be
editable, but the links will remain stable.

I also have moved diri, that sadly never had a proper website to and as I have mentioned before, I plan to
setup a page for wmi so people that still use it can still find the
latest source and other resources. You have shown again and again that
once you lose interest you don't care about the users of your
software, which is ok, but I think not pissing people off for not
reason is worth the small effort needed to maintain a stable and
minimally reliable website.

I thought this had been publicly discussed in this list a few weeks
ago. If anyone has any better ideas or suggestions they are always

Peace and best wishes
