Yes--that's what I'm doing.

Oh, bollocks. I don't have the faintest idea how to set about that.

It's been a long day.

I'll have to wrap my head around this new development another time.

Thanks for the advice.

So, what are the implications?

Presumably, before I attempt to revivify any more old threads- and I've got a list of about 20 more I'd like to resurrect, if I can locate them- I need to go back over the ones I've already posted here....and what?

"Copy and Paste", you say. Is that the "Right Click-Properties-Highlight-Ctrl C-OK-Ctrl V" operation? Right Click on the bar at the top of the page when I obtain a Google Search result? Then, when I've managed to place the new gobbledegook on the page I've already created here, I delete the old "cache" gobbledegook I posted before?

Forgive me if this sounds like an incredibly moronic question, but I really know next to nothing about IT. I'm willing to try to find the time for this archaeological retrieval task, but I need to know exactly what I'm supposed to be doing first.

That's a relief.

But is the procedure I've outlined above viable?

Thanks, I'll give it a whirl when the opportunity offers.

I remember that when Dave Ray died and his site lapsed, I could still open it for about a year and a half, so whatever you do can be leisurely.

I've taken some of the pages and copied the posts into a text file--then it can be touched up and pasted back into the site whenever it's ready. The videos and images have to be located and inserted again, but the videos are easy to find just by double clicking the copy on the site, which takes you back to the youtube original.

It's a bit more cumbersome than just copying the link, but as long as there's no urgency you can just do it when you feel like it.
