Iīm upset to lose old PMs too; I was willing to save some of them in my computer tonight... now I regret I didnīt do this months ago, like suggested a few times in the past.
I find the idea of the TW Librarians a bit difficult to be put in practice (can I be just sincere? I think Evan just doesnīt have any time or any interest in dealing with this, he probably only came here because he was pressured by the server owner to delete the files here on the conv. piece and lost precious few spare time).
Besides, I find a little boring to have a few chosen people telling "this was discussed before, here", when we canīt have the chance to search by ourselves.
Something tells me that we might never access those archives... but who knows, one day everything be back to normal? For now, we shouldnīt complain when at least we can still using this space... and maybe now itīs faster :)
