Well, Rustyr has said he no longer is supporting smaugwiz.
I will assist anyone with questions on it I have a forum for this:
How ever, I myself have migrated away from it myself now,
I am not doing it because of smaugwiz but more due to MS XP.
That's a shame that even Rustyr has given up on it, but maybe it's also saying something about the project... on the other hand, it's nice that you've decided to take up the torch from him on this, in the same way that it's nice of Samson to offer support for Smaug through SmaugFUSS and AFKMud.
XP is a beast that should never have been concieved.
*snicker* There is that new thing called Vista due out any day now.
Mainly the great Vir, who has been absent quite some time.
While I haven't spoken to him in quite some time now, I do see him on IMs every now and then still, perhaps on your new ubuntu machine you should set up gaim and set a buddy pounce for when he next logs on if you want to catch him... just a thought.
My email is another option for coding questions or just anything smaugwiz related
but I do prefer the forum so everyone can put a few words in...
Actually, I believe support via direct personal email on a one on one basis is exactly what Samson was saying back in May when he said:
No offense to Rustry, but that's not a particularly productive way to support the code. A forum or something would at least allow solutions to be out in the open for others to make use of, even if the forum itself is semi-restrictive about who he'd allow to use it.
So I'd think that inviting folks who desire support to your forums is a far better solution in general.
