I hesitate putting this out there. But I have pulled from Wayback Machine and elsewhere, about 62 tapers that were in the database on this forum. Is there any interest in these?


I think many/most of them are posted elsewhere. What I have is a small text file for each. I am in the process of trying to pull out of the archives the original postings about the tapers. Sometimes this is only the time/date of the taper posting. Sometimes it includes discussions of the taper. Like I mentioned, I am filling in the other information as I get time.


I don't want to step on any toes, but I figure that these tapers were already posted, so hopefully no one can have a problem with that?


So would anyone want to see them reposted? I could send them to an adminstrator to repost, or. . . . . I'd rather not have to post them individually myself. I have time, but not that kind of time.

Sam, I had uploaded a couple of Quad conversions that aren't posted anywhere else.  I don't know if anyone ever took advantage of them, but it seems a shame to have lost the resource. 


If the site administrator is willing, we could reestablish and rebuild the database, but I don't know if it would actually be worth the effort.  It doesn't seem that anyone is using the forum any more.... :(

I took a quick look. I saw four tapers that you had uploaded. Two were Sir D quads (2pc 3pc), one a Payne 201, and the other a Payne 100 quad.


Did you keep copies? If not I can send these to you.


I think you are right about re-establishing the database. The activity here seems quite low of late. I am curious to know if the tapers are what drew people here and then sent them elsewhere? I can't imagine that that was the only thing.
