Harvey, I haven't read the whole thread so I'm sorry if someone has already made this suggestion, but I suggest: artisanbread.com

Good one!  ;D

    LOL! That must have been a shock when Apple did that!

    Harvey, great site name. I was hoping that it would be something like this.

    You did guess it - - well done! You win some serious bragging rights..!  :)

    Shucks - I saw on facebook a few days ago that you were using kboards.blogspot.com for the daily deals, and I thought, "I bet that'll be the new domain" but didn't post it. Now I have no bragging rights. <pout>. Oh, Oh, I have most adorable, naughtiest kitty on the planet! So there. Something to brag about. OH! And I live in one of only 4 states that bans billboards (and we have no tolls in the entire state). OK, back to work... :)

    Well, those are good bragging rights! :) 

    We've had our sights set on the KBoards.com domain name for some time, and put in a proxy bid for it about two years ago. In the meantime the owner of the domain let it expire so we were able to acquire it at that time. Good fortune!

    FYI, KindleBoards.com will have the following downtime during the migration:

    March 2nd - 8pm Pacific time, for one hour - for testing purposes
    March 7th - 7pm Pacific time, for three hours - for final migration steps

    About 10pm on March 7th, if you go to KindleBoards.com, you'll be redirected to KBoards.com. At that time you'll want to update your browser bookmarks.

    I'll post here with any changes to the schedule, but those are my best estimates right now.

    May? I thought you were planning March...

    On another track, what about folks using Tapatalk? What will we need to do?

    Oops - typo! It is March.

    I'm still researching the Tapatalk implications but I believe it will require adding the KBoards.com forum to your existing Tapatalk application. No need to download a new app; it should be pretty straightforward. Instructions to follow.

    Thanks for the update, Harvey.  I'll put it on my calendar and undoubtedly forget anyway, but being warned helps.

    Harvey,

    I need to update my banner link to KBoards...

    With all the artists at the forums looking for cover-art work, they should be giving you "free designs" for new banner and box style links!

    While I realize this is the top-of-page forum here, I didn't even notice this until tonight. Might have been nice to put a "sticky" post in some of the other high-traffic forums. ;)
