By all the comments against mags it seems that maybe out member base isn't as old as I thought. I wont bother with the technological advances since then, or the popularity of gun x stuff. It was what it was. Unless you lived it you won't understand anyway.
Just because basic shared hosting can be had for $10 a month now doesn't mean it was 5 or 10 years ago. It also doesn't mean that shared hosting would run what the server AO is on is running...you're assuming, just as many on AO did that AO is the only thing on it. It's not.
Assimilation isn't likely IMHO. Adding the forum to this one data wise may be possible but suspect its not. Either way it still costs money. Someone needs to actually do the work and the other sites on that server need a home if AO moves and the server is retired.
