"The Old Internet Died and We Watched and Did Nothing." Can't Post

That's the title of a new article at Buzzfeed, whose subtitle is: "It's 2020 -- do you know where your content is?" I won't link, because the site includes a lot of political content that I would hate for anyone to accidentally stumble across. But it made me wonder: has there been any progress toward saving the content of the original TORN forums? Several members had volunteered to assist in that process (and I would be glad to put in many hours of work to help out and/or to conribute funds to assist); one of them was the late a.s., who I think was the first to notice the old forums had gone dark in 2016.


Treachery, treachery I fear; treachery of that miserable creature.

But so it must be. Let us remember that a traitor may betray himself and do good that he does not intend.

I think [In reply to] Can't Post

we'll need to wait to hear back from Altaira, who is understandably absent just now. But yes, it'd be wonderful to have our discussions (and tomfoolery) archived.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Thanks, Ataahua. [In reply to] Can't Post

I hadn't heard the sad news about Altaira's sister.

*hand shoots up* I'm getting ready... [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm working on putting several projects into the "finished" file to be ready. :) It's been good taking the time to do these as I've found more of my old links to add to my list.
