I wish I could say that we are going to experiment by going back in time on all posts, but the fact is that we had a major server die on us and a backup that didn't agree with us.  Long story short...we lost some stuff!  What's really funny (funny now, not when it happened) is that I was literally moving everything to a new server and planned on copying all files over the day after it broke.  Ahhh!!!  Oh well, we live for today!  Start posting again and let me know if you notice anything funky.

 Actually, it is really nice to see the forum without all the spam posts - you know, "pay for youtube view counts," etc.  Hopefully, you can delete the spam when it comes up.

I should give you access to delete spam.  You are a staple here.  :-)

 Sure, I will do it, if you like.  I try to check here every day or two.  

I don't mind someone posting once about their service or event.  I don't think there should be multiple threads on the 2014 Blue Cat Screenplay festival or How to get One Million Youtube Views.  One thread is enough.  Just add to it with any updates.  If the festival is for the new year, then make a new thread for that year.

There is a composer, I think his name is Eric, also.  He keeps bumping his own thread with lots of posts and new links.  That's fine.  It's one thread and it doesn't litter up the board.  This way, the film, music, art topics, etc. don't get buried.

Eric. Welcome back. With all the social media sites going strong. I still come back here once a week. Since this was the place that helped me get started and I have met soo many talented people and many became good friends. If you need help let me know. Perhaps to set up a donate page to help ease with cost?

 I had sort of wondered why the posts had shuffled on the message board and some old ones had surfaced apparently unprompted. Now I know.

Alas the travails of information management, failed drives, magnetic degration, bit-rot, legacy failure, over-written data.

In the days of paper records - notations in summaries "that part the rats ate", in Australia, termites feasting on the family albums, the odd house fire, in Sydney about two generations ago, the infamous "bottom of the harbour scheme" scams.

A thousand years hence, assuming humankind doesn't go the way of the dinosaurs, what will archeologists make of it all?
