If Sailnet is dead, why is this here?

Jeff

I think, just like in the movie,"2001 A Space Odyssy", Hal (or Denr) has taken over.

So we might as well enjoy the ride for as long as we can.

If all of this does go down I want to say "Thank You" to you and others for taking the time of all of your input here. I have had many enjoyable hours of reading and learning. What really bothers me is loosing the archives of this message board and the Articles.

Just yesterday I learned of a site, -----
www.waybackmachine.com ----------
I have been told that it contains everything that has ever been on the internet. Sounds unbelieveable, but then the Internet itself is still beyond my comprehension.

As a test case I used, SailNet>Articles>Kretschmer . It was a bit of a chore, but sure enough, up came what I believe is the full list of every thing John has written for SailNet. I have not tried it as yet, but we might be able to find all of the messages that have been put up on the board. Scary Huh.

Carry on Folks -- Walt Ward
