    Old Board?

    Argh! I actually went to the CBoard front page and the link that went to the old board no longer functions!

    Has it been removed permanently?

    The link is to the previous host for the site, and after I moved they stopped giving me sufficient space to host the board. I have a copy of the old board; unfortunately, it's about 60 MB and tens of thousands of files, so I haven't really had the desire to upload the entire thing. If there's a particular post I can search it for you, or if everyone wants the old board I can upload it, although not immediately.

    I always had a "keen" interest in seeing the old board myself. Many veterans here talk about it and quite often reference it.

    I'd like to see it again.

    I would like the old board back. There were
    a lot of questions that I asked (which I still
    have bookmarked) that I would like to review.

    People already took the time to answer them,
    so I don't want to ask them again.

    Same here. there were some nice questions asked and I learned a lot from it. I looked at it as a big library.

    Lets make this post in to a petition(sp?).Maybe if enough people want the old board back for review the wm will put it back on.

    I'd love to see the old board again. There's a lot of info on it that has previously been quite handy.

    Maybe a stupid question and I don't know anything about boards. but can't you put it in a zip file so we can download it and brows it on our pc or would we have to pay to use ultra board or maybe there is a free version?
