I've been asked when CKR is coming back as an interactive
site. That is a tough question. I would love to have the site up and running but
the realities are that hackers make this an enormous task, requiring much more
time and money than this little site can bear. Google is closing its Google
Groups for the same reason. "It's bittersweet to see it go, but Google+ is
shutting down in April 2019. The social network has seen security breaches
causing its downfall"
https://9to5google.com/2018/12/21/google-apis-shut-down-date/ . If Google
cannot keep their sites safe, how can I as a hobbyist? CKR is totally funded
and administered by me (George did send small a donation, never forgotten
Hackers have ruined the internet. I took CKR Drupal site down after we
were hit by the third Drupelgeddon hack only 2 hours
after Drupal released the patches to prevent. 2 hours. I cannot admin the site
24/7/365, and that alone is not enough.
So, an interactive site is not going to happen until we can
find a way to be interactive and safe. This site was intended to be family
safe, hackers take that away. Maybe we just front end YouTube videos like I
have now, but that is rather clunky as any new posts would need to be added by
me, and how to even do that safely remains a question.
