Spidey returns from the dead


#1

Any old-timers still on the board? I might need to borrow a nuke.


#2

Look for anyone with the Old Time CoGer badge. :slight_smile: There are a few of us around.

Welcome back!


#3

Good to see you again! :slight_smile:


#4

Are the old forums archived anywhere? I realize that '04 was a long time ago, but was hoping to hit up some of my old favorite threads for a re-read.


#5

'04 would be two platforms ago, IIRC. We had the nanc.com phpBB board hosted by Bob back then, then @Lee_Ars started hosting it on something else, then he moved us over here to Discourse.

He may have backups somewhere but they’re probably not usable without redeploying everything else.


#6

We went through two reboots and had to start over both times. A couple of people like myself saved a few specific messages they were interested in, but it wasn’t the whole database.


#7

RRabbit42 and dak are correct. Although the printerer thread is still kicking around somewhere. :slight_smile:


#8

I just found where I saved those files, way back at the end of March 2012. Some really good stuff in there, including the infamous “thong in the power supply” thread.


#9

Printerer thread needs a seri-ass update! :stuck_out_tongue:


#10

Okay, you have GOT to share the “thong in the power supply” thread!


#11

@Severine, that was your story wasn’t it?


#12

I haven’t seen Sev around for ages, and nobody else can really tell that story, so @RRabbit42 doing a copy/paste is probably the only way that will get shared.


#14

I posted the thong story here, but decided it fit better over in “The Bitching Hour Strikes Again”, so head there for the tale.
