Ok here's the bad news:

When Muffy left JG, he cancelled his Virtualave and Guidestone accounts. Those filestorage accounts held most if not all of our mining data, including the old PJG rotacol database and all of our Quant/Aman sector screenshots.

Some of the data (the ones he converted to the new format) is recoverable, as the links themselves provide the coodinates. The rest is a total loss.

really? Well, i suppose you and i should work out where you want me to upload critical files? I was actually hoping you'd contact me sooner.

*shrug*

it's not big deal, i have complete archives of both guidestone and virtualave. Why all the hysteria? just gimmie a shout and we can work out WHERE and how much i can shove into a host site.
    mine was costing me $40 canadian to keep the 150megs active per month
I take your compete silence in the matter of me wanting a database dump of these forums for nostalgia is somehow a punishment for cancelling my accounts? Since you didn't direct this thread to me personally but decided to get all melodramatic, i'm assuming you've already decided to deny me access to a database dump.

since you've obviously completely ignored me, i'm assuming i won't be extended professional courtesy at all. The fact you'll probably flame me with ad hominems instead of responding rationally i'm just going to download the forum into inefficient html dumps. (probably with something like "we can always recreate it the hard way. cya loser")

such a damned waste, dude.

whoa Muffy, hold on a min. I'm working 2 jobs atm, a full time and a part time. My weekend, the only time I can even think about playing JG is on Tuesday and Wednesday. Working from 7AM to 12 Midnight means that even if I checked the forums I wouldn't have time to reply to anything, so I haven't had a chance to respond to you untill today.

The first thing I did today was to read and reply to your e-mail. My reply contained the information you requested, as it has too much dammage potential to post on the forums.

I can try to score some server space at the webhoster I work for, but it might take a couple days to get it worked out.

I'm sorry I couldn't respond to your request sooner, but RL has reared it's ugly head back into my life (I had been jobless for 3 months, trying to make up ground to pay off debts now)

ok, sent it again, hope it goes through this time :)

I knew that you wouldn't leave the files up forever, I was just suprised at how fast they went down. After reading through all the forums I went to start downloading and saving em to my storage HD here at home untill I could find some webspace that wouldn't put me deeper into debt, but all the links were already dead.

mmm...yeah, well i cancelled the virtualave account for fear they'd delay the red tape until i got billed.

Besides, it would be much easier and convenient to negotiate what kind of stuff you wanted. I'm sure i can whip up a nice winRAR archive of pertinent stuff and we can DCC over irc. or icq. whichever works. hell, we could even do it over Kazaa. lol (though i'm sure your email slot can handle a few megs of stuff, eh?)

I saw a place that you could get something like 200MB of storage and 20GB worth of data transfer for $7.95/mo. They would set up a name for you or change the DNS for free. Gotta find that again...

Sorry to see ya go Muffy...

oh that's suhweeeeeet! yeah. i really need to research a new host. i mean, i cancelled all my subscriptions because i knew in my heart i was throwing money away. I'm hoping to find something similar and would appreciate a linkage to that host.

well, i'm not gone from these forums. *g* I'll repair all the dead links and even improve the system i have to prevent future purges, but i will never go back to JG, nor will i update new subjects...

i'm sure in time all my data will become obsolete for all but the anti-nerf researchers.

For a good web-host: http://ipowerweb.com/products/index.html

200MB Hosting, Transfer 20GB, 150 POP E-Mail accounts, SSL, FTP, Stats, CGI, PHP, MySQL, and last of the list, Frontpage extentions.

6 Month Price - $30 Setup $8.95

What you don't see right away, is that they have a chat page already set up too. I had the person that got this show me the tools. Pretty sweet setup...or so it looks to me (the girl that showed this to me knows a lot more about internet stuff - so I'm taking her word on it).

much thanks to MadCat i'm doing the slow process of repairing the links to www.mindphyre.com/UMEC/

what i've got done so far is.

  • pjg roid database pool.
  • 7pm-still uploading virtualave/guidestone files...am planning on dealing with my FAQ's dead links first.
  • almost 9pm-finished repairing some people's avatars (i hate red x). now off to fix the FAQ.
  • midnight...got done the FAQ linkage a while ago. been doodling around at homeworld forums linking 1337 pics here. Think i'm going to take a rest now and get back to repairing more links later. aiming at dealing with the important ship pic and n00b help links.
  • hmmm...1am and i couldn't stop. felt a burning desire to resurrect my old "Team Ekoo"
  • oh dear, i've been buggering around with silly pics while in comic relief doing some repair and i guess it's now time to fix the "pr0n" galleries.

    no rest for the wicked
  • ugh! 6am. got all the way down to patch52 screenshots then my mind fried
