        Hello Xta & Michael! It’s so great to “hear” your voices! 😀
        The official announcement is waiting for all the cleanup work to finish (we’re working on this Talk site today!)
        But the news is that we’re rolling all the disparate elements of the MU umbrella into just 2 MU main sites, the main site itself, and this talk site.

        In the case of PBR, as you know, I bought that “.re” domain name, “practicebased.re/search”. .re is the country code for Reunion Island (Indian Ocean east of Madagascar) but like other country codes, it’s used for domain name hacks. The Tuvalu country code, .tv is often used by television stations. And the Reunion Island country code is used by Real Estate agents! 😛

        Anyway, I had to get it from a funky domain name registrar since most of the normal registrars don’t, (or didn’t anyway) carry the .re tld. Not a big deal, and it wasn’t expensive at all, but each year I’d forget to renew it, and so the PBR sites would be down for a month or three till I remembered to renew it.

        Meanwhile, it’s gotten quiet at the various MU units. We’re largely in hibernation mode – at least formal MU is – many of the peeps who’ve participated are, not surprisingly, working on all kinds of awesome projects! So this seems like a great time to consolidate all of the content we’ve strewn across cyberspace. As you probably know, I make way too many websites in the first place! 😛 And now in quiet mode, it seems like a lot of sites dilutes things. By collecting all of the content we’ve produced, it should be easier to find things, and easier to maintain.

        Be sure to see our handy Table of Departments:

        it’s a great way to quickly navigate through a lot of content!

        Also, at the bottom of every MU page, you’ll find that same table of departments, plus a chronologic archive, tags, and my personal favorite, This Week in MU History which lists the posts from different years that were published during this week in the calendar.

        Once we finish with the reorganization, I’ll be inviting all of the ~60 authors who’ve participated in the various MU projects to make a What’s up [with me] now? post and share whatever they’re inclined to. I’m excited discover what all of our wonderful friends have been doing.

        So great to hear from you Michael ‘n Xta!

        What’s up [with you] now?

        ~ Vanessa
