Rhian and I are in touch with the admin (maybe), and we'll offer to help out in any way we can.

HTLAL is built around a older, ASP-based forum package with extensive customizations for many of the neat features it supports. The admin has done an impressive job keeping running for as long as he has. I'm hoping we can help him keep all that great information and history online.

While HTLAL is outdated, outmoded, old fashioned and slow, the information over there is gold. The methods discussed and probably most of the learning materials are still in use and probably will be for years to come. I hope it can be up and running again soon.

It's up and running as of today. I have asked FX about the site and I have presented different solutions and asked his feelings on the subject. Either he needs more time to mull things over or the subject of him passing the torch is not up for discussion. I hope it's the former but sadly I think his silence on the subject indicates the latter.

He has indicated he would accept some help updating the website but it would take specific skills & a lot of time, not to mention it would have to be someone very trusted.

Anyway, glad that it's back again.

A long time ago (I must have been in a galaxy far, far away) I missed this:

I wish I knew more about the character -- I'd probably find the reference punchier / funnier. Was that spoken in a scary voice on a radio serial or something? : )

That was a hint that I can be reached and asked directly: even if I am in ghost mode 99.99% of the time, I still drop by sometimes, and the LLorg forum is supposed to give me a heads up if someone PMs me... assuming you really want to know. And of course, there's that moderator ; )
