This is what you get for investing too much time and resources in one spot. All your eggs in one basket. I've gotten too involved in a forum before, and it stings when something happens to the place. You just have to keep going, man.

Ian is talking about selling the back up to you for $1 million, which would be an insanely excellent half-price discount.  You could then remount it for just $10 a month or something.  Maybe you can raise the money for it when you convince someone to pay you that much for your balls or a limb or something like that.  You seem to have an inflated notion of the market value of those things as well.

I will pay one whole dollar for one of Libman's testicles.

Keep going?!  Did you ever spend a whole evening writing something and then have a computer glitch and lose it?  What just happened to me is that times 1000!  Some of the most valuable thoughts ever achieved by the human race were documented on this forum!  Some of my best arguments on other forums were hyper-linked to this one for examples and clarifications...  It was a living thing, and one of the greatest living things in the known universe, and they just fucking killed it for no reason!  How can you have anything but murderous rage for such people ever again?!

Threads posted to last over 500 days ago in the General, Show, and Hijack-Free Zone forums were purged.

Libman, I feel your pain. It's like burning the Library of Alexandria.

There was over 500k posts here yesterday. There aren't that many now. Oh well.

Zactly. Congrats on the shiny new badge too BJ :)

We feel your pain, but there's nothing to be done about it. You should try to detach yourself a little from the site. Is this worth the stress its giving you?

To quote some zen/type source: Can you do something to change the problem? If yes, do it. If not, then there you are.


EDIT: FUCK I cannot post on here without damn new replies bumping in front of me. Someone even beat me with my message content, twice.

Can anyone find, for example, that DNF thread I've mentioned through Archive.org?  Google and other search engines seem to have only a fraction of the site, and their cache will eventually get purged.  If no one has backup, then we're fucked.

I refuse to live in a universe where such stupidity is possible, in the #1 forum of the one movement that was supposed to be rational and good, which I've sacrificed everything for.  Death is the only thing left.

No, YOU'RE fucked. I dont think anyone else really gives a fuck. Luckily for you, I have the whole site saved to disk as of 3 weeks ago, 50 pages deep with all posts on the board just incase something happened to the site.  Got the advertising links, posts, everything but the show archive links.

Uh oh.  Now you can undercut Ian.  Maybe sell it to Libman for just $800k or so.  There might even be a crash in the FTL BBS market just like the housing market.

I'll go ahead and bid $1 for Libman's other testicle.  I don't actually want it, but I figure I'll be nice and try to stimulate the bidding.  Don't send it to me.  Just dispose of it properly so it's not re-attachable.
