The end of summer is always a bit sad for those of us in cold weather climes, notwithstanding the delights of Fall here in New England, but the prospect of a new cycle of Apple products certainly provides an effective antidote.
Party on, Garth!

As the consensus is to stay on ProBoards, it should be a relatively painless move. You will be able to access the site the way you do now, you will merely point to a different board.
To my knowledge, the only mechanism on ProBoards to communicate with members is PM (Messages). This functionality is a little awkward for mass messages, so our primary means of notification will be through the placement of conspicuous notices and directions on the Daily and Week Ending threads. We will do so at least a week in advance.
We don't want to leave any members behind. Still looking for volunteer(s) to assist other members with the transition. This would potentially include:
monitoring the existing Board for any stragglers
comparing new and old member lists and following up with PM's to anyone who hasn't made the move
When you register on the new Board please use the screen name you used here so we can easily identify who has and has not made the transition. Also, Please ensure that you are not blocking PM's from ProBoards. That is our only means of communicating directly with you.
Worse case scenario, anyone who finds themselves lost can PM me through the this Board.
Hopefully, Lovemyipad returns... eliminating any necessity to move.

We're not quite there yet, right?
Our temps just dropped a bit after the extended heat wave, quickly going to the "don't leave the windows open all night or the house gets too cold" range.
Any yard related stuff, whether sprinklers/drip, staining the deck, recoating the driveway, filling in the bare patches of grass... All of them seem at odds with having snow on the ground close to 6 months of the year, with as much as 6 feet of compacted snow. Time to fix the couple of roof issues and/or put up heat wire.
At the same time, with school starting here and in locations nearby, the tourist level ramps down significantly. Suddenly the beaches are much less busy, and the trails too. There's 2-3 months now where it's a little crisper in the morning, but it's still pretty ideal, especially if we get a little rain to knock down the dust on the trails.
And it's still trail building time. On Friday I helped a few friends make some temporary bridges out of a log, using an Alaskan Chainsaw Mill to make slabs 5" thick, 20" wide, and 9.5' long. They looked awesome! Today we're having a volunteer appreciation ride for those that helped with a trail we worked on over the last 2 years. And we'll have a celebrity guest, Levi Leipheimer, joining us.
This is the time of year to get things done before winter sets in. But we have some time still to enjoy the outdoors too, including being able to walk the kids to school.
mercel: It's been a long strange trip - good to see you're still around (and in AAPL -my assumption).

sponge: Regarding the future of VR, I think it will be huge. I was a gamer when I was in college. But as an adult I lost interest. Last fall I flew up to visit my son at college and check out his new Vive set up. After playing with it for the weekend, I was
