The Next Step
Today we are happy to announce that our new home on the internet is up, operational, and looks pretty spiffy to boot.
For those not in the know, back in November of 2005, at the end of a 5 year legal dispute with the UFCW, the Supreme Court of British Columbia decided that we didn't have the right to use the domain name ufcw.net for our web site.
In the months since, we developed a plan to deal with the decision and kept two specific goals in mind:
- Rebirth: a fresh break out of the MFD box. An opportunity to expand our horizons and open the door to a broader range of topics and ideas.
- Create a legacy: ensure that the content that's been produced and published at ufcw.net remains accessible for the years to come.
Today, we're born again.
We hereby cordially invite you to point your browser to http://www.uncharted.ca and get nestled-up with us in our new digs. There you'll find all the amentities you've come to expect and maybe a few that you didn't.
In the coming weeks we'll also be launching the MFD Archive, a searchable and browsable repository containing every bit of content ever posted by anyone here at ufcw.net over the last 5 years. We'll be posting a notice here and at uncharted to announce the launch of the archive.
To facillitate the creation of the archive we will not be posting any more news or articles here and the forums will be locked at midnight this coming Sunday (February 5th).
ufcw.net will be going offline permanently at midnight on Friday, March 2nd.
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed or participated in ufcw.net over the years. We sincerely appreciate your patronage and we look forward to more of it at uncharted.ca.
