Last weekend I transitioned the site from Blogger to a self-hosted WordPress installation. While there were many reasons for making the switch, the primary reason was that I wanted to be able to expand Liliputing so that it’s not just a blog, but also a community. Many of you have been quite vocal in the comments, and today I want to announce a new opportunity to join the discussion: the Liliputing Forums.

There are already a number of excellent user forums for low cost ultraportable computers. My goal is not to compete with other communities but rather to present a place where people can share their thoughts and ideas about all things related to low cost mobile computing. The new forums feature subtopics for each major class of tiny computer, but also forums for discussing hardware, software, operating systems and other news. I’m also open to questions or suggestions. let me know if you have any ideas for new categories or if you think I should remove some.

I want to acknowledge some of the other fantastic user communities out there. I hope that members of our new forums will continue to collaborate with them.

You can find a link to the forums in the site navigation menu just above the Liliputing logo.

  1. Thanks for the feedback!
    I’ll be changing hosts this week-end,
    It is frustrating when we dedicate time working as much as we can on a blog, to end up with unnecessary downtimes and problems.

    Cheers

  2. Dear colleague,

    May I ask where are you hosting your wordpress blog?

    My current host is making me serious troubles.

    Best wishes for the forums opening!

    1. I’m currently using a shared hosting plan from GoDaddy. I haven’t been using
      it long enough to tell you whether it’s good or bad, but the site doesn’t
      seem to have gone down anytime in the last week!
