Nope, it's a thing of the past. Forgotten. Now. :-)

A lot of changes one could observe on DF website from that
time. Let me point to one thing - DF is on BSD cutting edge of
development. Those who are interested in latest innovations on the BSD
side comes not only from developing circles or supporting teams of
large server farms.

Some questions can be stupid or suggesting the gaps in documentation.
New PC hardware is pretty powerfull - multicores' CPUs, terrabyte disks
etc. New BSD "flavors" attract people which want to fully utilize their
rigs. Most of us have a few PCs in home-network configurations.

Any unanswered question, the more so a few od them, creates bad
impression of OpenBSD forums, beg your pardon, but such is common view
of OpenBSD (closed?) community. It yould be great loss for the whole
effort around DF if the DF world was seen that way.

Regards to all,
