The Classic Shutdown: It's Happened
 
Several Classic holdouts have told me that the old numeric IDs finally ceased working yesterday, really and truly. Call me sentimental, but I feel kind of sad about it. I've been 71600,300 for over 1/3 of my life, and could have done without having to change my name. Not to mentioning having to retire TAPCIS...

Well, at least the forums and the e-mail service still exist, so it's not as if the CompuServe era has come to an end. Though quite a few news stories about the shutdown give the false impression that it has.

Heinz, John is referring to usage of classic numericals no longer being usable for access to the CIS boards. This has been the gameplan all along.

The CIS Classic numericals are still valid for email transmissions.

john mentioned '' ... Not to mentioning having to retire TAPCIS ... '', and caused me to click.

And now members can log into the forums by using their Classic email addresses (but not the aliases).
