Thanks for starting things off. I have been doing some serious 
architectural thinking and will post some ideas when I can condense them 
into words.

Realism.com is my domain. I've had it almost 20 years now (since 1996). 
Tools is where I do my development, so (at least I think) it is a 
perfect place for discussions. Backups are done every day, maintenance 
is done by me. I may need to expand on that if there are people 
interested and it becomes a big enough thing. The site is powered by 
Drupal V7. V8 is available in beta, but not ready (nor complete) for 
prime time.

I'll look into other support, but since I've started this here and like 
to leave it for a while. I am not opposed to moving the discussion to an 
appropriate platform as needed.
