    Default Where have all the old threads gone?

    I was absent from the board for a while and upon returning I have found that any old threads I had started seem to have vanished. Are they still accessible? I only ask because about two years ago I had posted a review of The Stand by Spider Robinson that I transcribed from an old Analog magazine. I no longer have the magazine but am in search of the review. I figured it would still be on the forum somewhere but I sure cannot find it.

    Anyone? Thanks in advance for the info...

    Many of the old threads were purged in a board upgrade, but as far as I know Jordan does have them cached somewhere. If it is something specific (like this) you could contact him via P.M.
    Just letting you know though, that he's been fairly busy with another project and may not be able to get back to you on it right away.

    ...gone to flowers, everyone. which reminds me of a line i read in the death ship from b traven, "i wonder what goes on night and day beneath the surface of a cemetery." heh! all those turf wars. some rooster crowing about liberty, a crowd gathered around bernie's tomb...bernie always was a favorite, yes sir, jack sitting up, frozen, against a tree. i wonder what mm learned?

    I googled around and could only find what seems to be a review of Robinson's review.

    which made me want to read the original review. I hope your old post can be found
