Migrating darkice to darkice.tyrell.hu

Dear DarkIce users,

I'm migrating the project hosting from SourceForge to my own server, as
I've had some issues with using the SourceForge instrastructre for some
time. That said, I'm very happy that I could register DarkIce at sf.net
back in 2000, and they gave me big help with their hosting.

So the new site is: http://darkice.tyrell.hu/

There's also a new mailing list: darkice-list@lists.tyrell.hu , you can
subscribe to it here: http://lists.tyrell.hu/mailman/listinfo/darkice-list... read more
