And, in the end…

Well, the forum software used for Brews and Views has been challenging to keep up with. Apparently, it has become the new favorite of hackers and script kiddies, and, frankly, I have not been able to keep up with the patching. So, once again, a hacker has gotten the best of the Brews and Views forum, and the database has been pretty much hosed.

Equally unfortunate, since the demise of Bill Pierce and the prevalence of vendor-owned and other more highly moderated fora, Brews and Views had devolved into something that one or two brewers used. Occasionally.

Based on this, I have unilaterally decided to end Brews and Views after over 20 years of operation. RIP. It’s been fun.
