For those of you who were residents of the Forum on the old site, you may be glad to know that we've got all the archives available. It's the top link in the archives tab on the top bar. Or you can click here.
Please note that these are "read only" for the time being. If anyone has any suggestions about ways to recreate an off topic community, please drop a line or post a comment below.
Many, many thanks to Bill Cumming for hosting the archives and for the tech help in making it happen.
