No, wait, I'm wrong. :( The MySpeakersCorner page is gone. :( I guess we didn't get the word soon enough. The Internet Archive does seem to go to at least the first page of the old forum, though, but maybe only the first page? :cry:

The first, second and hundred-and-seventy-second pages are all there, so I think all the pages are there, it's just that the search mechanism doesn't seem to work any more. The search page does appear correctly, but it returns an error message when you try to search.

No, I poked around and tried to go to some recipes from different geological eras, and it's pretty clear that the Internet Archive puts up a random sample but doesn't drill all the way down to every message and reply. :(

I'm sorry, folks. It was a good eight-year run, but we've known all along that the old forum might someday fail. Frankly, I thought that would happen when the servers would no longer respond to the ancient code, but I guess we don't get to choose the specific manner of death. :cry: I hope most of you have saved your favorites. I've been using both Dropbox and Evernote as a quick-save backup for any text I want to keep, not just on the forum but everywhere, and I recommend both those approaches.

I used to enjoy randomly browsing through just to remember all of the folks who used to post. Good times.
