i ran a search on "VPC" and got 4 hits

the search probably got mangled during the upgrade and he hasn't reindexed the site yet.

I'm just curious - why would the owner of thefiringline update the server software, since the forum is no longer active? Is it for an expiration of software or something?

I know it's not really any of my business - I'm just curious.

Thanks,
Steve

People still use it, whether to search or browse. I suppose there's no reason not to upgrade if it's going to remain accessible indefinitely as an historical and reference archive. I like the new search page better.
