The end of an era…

…but not of AVIEN.

Since AVIEN has gently declined from being a major player on the fringes of the anti-malware industry to a few low-volume mailing lists, I’m reducing its footprint on the web and the drain on the pocketbooks of Andrew Lee and myself (subscribers haven’t been charged for some time, so there is no income with which to maintain the sites). Existing and future blog articles will be available from the AVIEN portal¬†from next week (the first week in August, 2011). The existing AVIEN web site (including this blog page) will be taken down when the domain is transferred to Small Blue-Green World, but some of the content will also be transferred in some form.¬†

Thanks again to Andrew Lee for maintaining the sleeping giant for so long. Unfortunately, its current sleeping quarters mean running at a significant loss, so we have to change the decor a little. However, the fact that quite a few people want to remain on the new mailing list is encouraging, and I don’t think we have to call in the undertaker just yet.
