Way back in 2011, a server somewhere in Florida started making terrible noises, and a NIN community fostered during the drought between AATCHB and With Teeth
went silent. Having moved The NIN Hotline onto a virtual private server some time before that, I asked for permission to point echoingthesound.org to my cloud machine and start fresh with new software. The board officially launched on December 1st, 2011 - just in time for the announcement of the soundtrack for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
It was a bit of a rough start, with our fair share of outages, but by it's first birthday, the Echoing the Sound community counted over 2,000 registered members among its ranks, and is in the best shape I think it's ever been.
I know, there's been a lot of news since the last update here. I'm going to get as much of it online as I can tonight. Maybe I'll stretch some of it out for tomorrow. Enough blathering: Commence news dump!
