    Default Archive Forum disappointment

    Hello,

    Just today I tried to read some of the old threads in the Archive.
    Sadly although the forum pages (200) are visible, the wayback does not allow or has not got the actual threads of text.
    OR
    Is it because I have an old tablet that I cannot read those old threads ?

    Alex,

    You dont need wayback engine for archived threads - Just start here:
    http://www.rafcommands.com/archive/

    Do a google site search with site:www.rafcommands.com/archive/ ​if you have to search. There is also a search box on top of every thread./page..


    Another tip to locate an old thread - if you know the thread number eg:
    http//www.rafcommands,com/cgi-bin/dcforum/dcboard.cgi?az=show_thread&om=1071&forum=DCForumID6&archive=yes

    Use the number in a URL format like this
    http//www.rafcommands.com/archive/01071.php

    I suspect the Wayback Machine can't archive password protected content.

    Alex, all the threads should be there -

    About 90 pages , each with 150 threads - so nearly 13,000 topics .. if you click page 1, oldest thread is from 2001, last threads are from 2007.

    Pages 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30

    31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60

    61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90


    none of them are password protected.
