Due To Rick's recent unfortunate illness, Groupee will be again taking over the development of UBB.threads. Ted himself will again be at the helm, actually programming it. The new UBB.threads will be using the latest Ruby on Rails technology. Using new technologies such as ajax wherever possible to make it fit in with the web 2.0 directives that most people are looking to. Just think, with ajax you'll never have to have that ugly page refresh again, won't that be great?
