Wow - 2002 to 2008 were some GREAT times around here.

So sad to see it be overgrown with weeds!

It pains me to have to get my fix at...gasp....the museum. This place ruled the wasteland back in the day for sure. Great times and good friends met through this website.

Every time I come back here, I picture this giant room, overgrown with falling ceiling tiles, mold, and dripping water. Debris on the floor and smell of forgotten-ness.

I say..."anyone here" and it echos and quickly fades. I slowly turn back around, shoulders hunched, a leave the way I came in.

I miss this place, a lot!

It makes me sick to think about all that was lost...

The good news is that it's not really "lost."

When I moved the site to the new hosting, it seems the database did not get fully restored...so large chunks of content are missing.

I have the original database backed up, so it's just a matter of being able to commit the time to restore the original backup, and then the current content on top of it. I just have not had the time to do that yet, as it will probably need to be two full business days, so that I can call upon InVision (the software publishers) for the delicate procedure.

Hopefully soon.

Best,

Mike

I'm not allowed in the Vintage Freestyle section because I don't have a front brake our a Potts mod, but...

this is good news. The real value of this website is in the massive archive.

That is FANTASTIC news Mike. Thank you. A lot of us will really appreciate that content being restored. Take your time. Just the fact that I know it has not been completely lost sets me at ease. Back in 2006 after a server upgrade, everything was wiped clean and Rick either didn't restore it or it was never properly backed up. That really sucked.
