Not all is entirely lost.

You can still use google search to search the old forum:

In a google box, type "site:forum.concours.org {search key}"

For example, to find posts about kipass:

site:forum.concours.org kipass

You can also use the "Show search tools" in the left margin to limit the date range.

This is not an ideal solution, but at least gives access to some of the old content... at least until google purges it.

Funny seeing all the "old" guys with less than 20 posts :-)

My solution does work.. Sort of.  Once you've found the link, look for the cache button.  This will show the entire page that google had cached.

Here's the first link that showed up in Rick's search for coil sticks.

http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:94KWWRwvaEwJ:forum.concours.org/index.php%3Ftopic%3D66969.0+site:forum.concours.org+stick+coil&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&client=firefox-a&source=www.google.com


To see the next page, you copy the link to clipboard, then use cache:{paste} in a google box.

Again.. It's far from ideal, but at least gives a clumsy way of accessing old data.

I've already said it, but I'll say it again, thank you Rick!
 
I'm curious though, who pays ($) for the hardware etc to support this site??
 
I'm very active on gixxer.com as well but they have a membership fee, it's not alot of $ but at least with the many members it covers some expense's I guess like this...
 
How does that work on this forum and who has to pull the $ to rebuild the servers etc??
 
I'm sure many on here would be more than willing to pay a yearly or lifetime membership fee, it's a a great forum IMO and worth it...

I've only been a Connie owner for about three weeks and, based on how many times I checked to see if the forum was back up, I must be totally hooked on this forum. A fantastic resource! Based on all the great folks here, I'm sure it won't be long before there's a lot of useful info.

Yer talking to him.

It's a barter arraignment. I offer IT (Internet end, not really desktop support) services in exchange for the feed. The server (2U, two slot, w/ one dual core (I need to upgrade to 2 quad cores)) is at a financial institution. They also have a couple other financial domains hosted on the server 'for free'. Been doing so for 10 some odd years at the current host. Hardware costs are always a challenge, but it gets taken care of.

This may explain the spartan look to the forum(s), lo graphics, no large file storage. If I had more resources (see CPU upgrade above, and most importantly additional bandwidth), I might install more crap. Like a real photo album. For now, everyone appears happy, and it remains free (my choice). The members and Mods make this what it is, I only provide the sand box... and it is limited.

My solution does work.. Sort of.  ...

I've local copies of most of Elvin and VAJim's "most excellent" FAQ/Wiki posts (I clicked "save as" to my local machine). When I have time I'll re-upload. For now...
