What can TORNadoes do to help recover the old forums' content? [REPOST]

Here's a repost of N.E. Brigand's query as to What can TORNadoes do to help recover the old forums' content?

This is such a great Quest... I hope we can find a way to make it happen.

OH BTW. I just noticed at the top of the page that Feedback has had 2500 threads since it's rebirth in February 2007! This is number 2501!!!! Way ta' go, TORn! :D

I've been working toward gaining access

.. to the Admin area of the old boards to see what's possible from that angle. Corvar is helping, but it's been a bit of a scavenger hunt for links as no one has accessed it in more than 10 years. We're also working on getting me access to the database area of the old boards so I can re-acquaint myself with its layout and possibilities from that angle. The next two weeks are going to be extremely busy for me, but the first few weeks of July I'll have time to devote to moving things forward.
Thanks for re-posting this, gramma! Smile

I can't stop smiling! :D

This is going to be a long, long walk and not a sprint. But the chance of having any reconstruction or recovery is exciting and so satisfying!!

Thanks to you and to Corvar for taking on this elusive project. It's a treasure-hunt... and a tricksy puzzler, fersher!

Thanks, Altaira

I can certainly understand having a busy real life, and I really appreciate that you're continuing to work on this!

Happiness: money matters, but less than we think and not in the way that we think. Family is important and so are friends, while envy is toxic -- and so is excessive thinking. Beaches are optional. Trust is not. Neither is gratitude. - The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner as summarized by Lily Fairbairn. And a bit of the Hobbit reading thrown in never hurts. - NottaSackville

"The maps he sent to us don't mention lost coastlines."

Thanks for your explorations!

(And thanks gramma for checking on this.)
