ANNOUNCEMENT: Change Siteowner- & Leadership Smokey’s Security Forums


Smokey’s was founded and launched by me August, 2006. Eleven years after forums establishement it was about time for my full retirement hence transferred ownership domain and site leadership as well to Mr. Pete Kendell, on internet better known as Starbuck.

I have all confidence in Pete that he will continue Smokey’s in the demanded straight and reliable way the site is known for, past years he already was my substitute and is very capable and fully qualified to run the site. Current policies and rules will not be changed by him, important too : site name Smokey’s Security Foums  will never be changed.

Pete is a man dedicated to all facets of computer security, he is the best successor I can wish. With him the very high site standards will be unaltered continued.
