Well, it looks like this is where all the popular people hang out. Thought I would join in on the fun!

Thanks, Serena and Tom, for providing the lifeboat. Without it we surely would all drown in our withdrawal! John, thanks for all your hard work and dedication to this place. We all love it, and we're glad we can still be here even if it looks a little different!

Thank you all for your encouragement and offers to assist.

As DB mentioned I've been trying to migrate the old posts to a new forum.
The conversion from snitz to vBulletin isn't going well.
Our vandal keeps making things tough. During his last visit the conversion terminated and the new forum quit working.

Attempted to start with a new install of the forum. That failed.
Reinstalled PHP.
The MySql reinstall failed.

Fortunately we have the lifeboat and the mods.

If the posts of old are to be committed to the ether, then let the legends begin...scaldic tales, as worthy of songs and fellowship.
Let us not look back, but begin anew...fresh starts are good.

Agreed, my old comrade. The smallest candle overcomes the largest darkness.

So, lets kick the tires, and light the fires...OMG, I'm quoting "Captain Ron"...all is well with the world.

Just a note, it works for a little while, at least for me, ..... is that enough disclaimers?

If you can remember any part of what you're looking for, do a Google search. You may have to tell it to do the search again without omitting the duplicates. When the results come up, look through the titles for the RF post you are trying to find, then click the link for the "Cached" page. Sometimes it works and you'll be able to see/copy what you were searching for.

If there's more on another page in the thread, you'll be out of luck unless that page showed up in the search results too.

Hope it will help someone. Good luck!

Example: I was looking for something about our handfasting in Tennessee last year. I did a google search for Esc Leinad handfasting and it turned up the pages.
Esc be no lady!

Thanks Esc. I have tried that, but for me at least poking about in the rubble has yeilded no results. I wonder if I'm being too specific. Mayhaps just my name would bring more?
