So, any word about what was the actual cause?

Nothing about the cause so far from xper as far as I can see, not even on the moderators' section of the forum.

I find it rather annoying how cavalier xper seems in communicating issues to his readership base. Is it just me?

Not just you. Since he seems to have lost interest in the site, at least most of the interest he used to have. I would hope that he would give or sell it to someone else who has the time and inclination to be at least a little bit more involved. The site will probably survive as long as the members wish to be involved, but it has a better chance with active and supportive management. Technical sites have lost a LOT since their heyday ( 15 - 25 years ago ), the decline probably corresponding to the lack of control the user now has over a computer operating system and programs, and the decline of home computers in general compared to smart phones with their increase in power. [ Look at the extreme decline in general availability of computer magazines in the last 20 years or more. ] I would hope a few technical sites are able to stay active for as long as possible, but I guess we'll have to wait and see. ::sigh::

Cheers and Regards
