A very good question about archiving. You'd think that they could keep stuff a little longer than is the current policy.

Sorry about the ambiguity. I actually should of PM'd Mr. Saunders about this as I read a post of his somewhere else.

How doesthis boardkeep all of the information that has been written since the start of this board? Does Mr. Saunders have his own server? How big of memory does it take? I know it would have to be in the high Gigabytes if not Terabytes.

Just curious. I do appreciate being able to go back when I first started posting here and re-read some of my own items as well as others.

Just another reason why this is a world wide well regarded site.:clapper:

That is correct. I don't know how they figure when to archive. It seems like it's arbitrary sometimes but that is just my observation, not necessarily fact.

Both the Tech board and Classic board have valuable information. It's a shame to see it disapear after a while. It also creates situations where something may have been discussed last month at length and then you get a new member that didn't have a chance to read the stuff, ask basically the same question again.

Oh well, I still go there to learn things and if I come across something that I think would serve people well here, I try to pass it on.

There also is the http://groups.msn.com/BackYardBuiltGoldwingsBarGrille/messages.msnw

and http://groups.msn.com/ClassicWingSIG/general.msnwboards that I browse. They don't get nearly as much traffic as this site but occasionally there is a nugget of info worth passing on, such as my post yesterday pertaining to brake fluid. I got that from the Backyard site.

Anyways,

Regards,

Hobie
