    Go to Google. Type in your search keywords, then add "site:tt.tennis-warehouse.com" to them (without the quote marks). This limits the search to pages found on this site.

    Noelle, I'm looking for the OLD message board, the one with the old format.

    Not sure that the posts from the old board are still out there. Noelle's tip works great for searching the archives of the new board. There is a website that has copies of many sites that were dumped at regular intervals for the last several years. I can't remeber what the URL is though. Maybe you could post this to Ask TW and they'd enlighten us?

  6. MSG? Isn't that the poison that they put in Chinese food to help preserve it. I like Chinese food.

    MSG = makes stuff good

    It's not a poison or preservative, it's a salt-like seasoning that should be used in moderation. ;P

    A good chef doesn't need to use MSG or any artificial seasonings; the cheap restaurants use it. A lot of people get sick from MSG-it just makes me tired.

    thanks for the contribution, but that site does not archive actual discussions, which has been discussed before somewhere... (i swear i've posted it in this thread before..) guess not.

    I've pestered jon the admin for months about access.

    If tw has the disk and filesystem is intact. the data should still be accessable with webx software.

    Converting that data to a new bb format could be difficult.

    I don't personally think that converting it would be necessary. Just host a mirror for it.

    I remember reading in another thread that TW had to pay for a license to use the software for the old board. The license might have expired.

    Actually, the raw materials to produce mono sodium glutamate comes from 100% natural sources such as raw sugar cane or cassava (tapioca).

    Whatever it is, we're eventually going to end up 6 feet under and I'd rather have control in knowing how I ended up there.

    So the key is to eat in moderation.
