I had forums on this site a very long time ago but nothing ever really happened with them. After the prodding of Andrew McCuller (a Mac Genius at an Apple Store, among other things), I've decided to give forums another whirl. I went with bbPress for its tight integration with WordPress and lightweight footprint. I still have a lot of editing to do but it's up and running.
As for my intentions with the forums, I don't want them to interfere with the insightful comments and discussions that happen within my blog posts, but rather have it be its own community for discussing anything and everything tech, and then some. You'll be able to find out about posts in-the-works, such as an upcoming audiophile-worthy speaker upgrade, as well as give and receive tech support (and hopefully take it out of my inbox). If you're interested, you can quickly register here. Registering also means that you will be able to use that same account to comment here, so you don't have to keep typing in your name, email and url when you comment.
Sidenote: I didn't plan on posting about the Apple news today, but iTunes 8 and the Genius playlist maker is pretty spiffy. :-)
Update: Yeah that didn't last long. I took them down for a number of reasons, ranging from low activity to being a spammer's haven.
