Reunion News 2007
The class database is dead.
It was an old Windows based web application on one of the oldest servers you ever saw. There was also very little running on the server, little interest in Windows based stuff and only one person supporting it unlike the other WP-ORG services. With only us and two other groups using it and too few Windows support volunteers, it was not replaced when the server died.
You can still access all the data with this spreadsheet. You will need to login with the old database userid and password to download the spreadsheet.
There are other options for running most of the database functionality but they have not been fully explored yet.
The class website is in the process of being upgraded to a newer version of the software that runs the site. Not everything has been brought forward yet. You can still find everything at the old site. All our stories should be here but not everything will be brought forward. Most of the functionality will be recreated here in one way or another.
One reason for the upgrade is the server where the class database lives is being retired. The server runs Windows and there is little interest in Windows specific features these days at WP-ORG so there will be no new Windows server. The class database will be integrated into the main site in some format or another.
