Old Boards

The old boards are still here, but they have been made read-only. This new software allows you to put boards as "child" boards of others, so open the "Old Boards" board to see all the old stuff:

By the way, the search feature of this new board works better and faster than the old one. Give it a try if you lose track of something.

Cross Reference

EDIT: The script to do this automatically is complete and in place. Click and forget.

In links pointing to old board messages, there is a "num=" in the URL and sometimes a "start=".

The new board uses the "topic=X.Y" where X is the topic number and Y is the same as the "start=" number.

The topic numbers aren't the same, but I have a cross reference table that tells the new topic number based on the old topic number. The file is attached.

For example, using the attached cross reference list I can convert an old URL as shown:;start=15


because 1109989865 cross-references to 2269.

I hope to automate this conversion, but if you're hard up to find where an old link is you can look it up using the attached cross-reference file. (Automated script is in place now.)

Re: Old Boards

If you haven't noticed, on "Old boards", you can click the category title and the contents disappear or reappear from the list.
Often uninformed, seldom undecided.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain
