As of 12/4/2016 the servers are now in their new homes, the web server in Fremont and the archive server emma in Santa Cruz. Some of the pre-2004 archive programs are not yet online but will be soon. Your support is essential if the service is to continue, there are bandwidth bills to pay every month and failing disk drives to replace. Volunteers do the work, but disk drives and bandwidth are not free. Click on this bar to contribute, even a dollar helps.

Our Ignorance, Hubris and Greed (IHG) concerning our web of life is causing a REAL STINK in the heavens via methane. A gas produced by bacteria breaking down rotting flesh be it of flora or fauna, be it happening at present or in the past and stored as hydrates or as clathrates as know by some. Have you seen the noctilucent clouds overhead? All signs of a dying planet. Is it warm enough for ya yet? Yeah sure, everything is okay, move along now, nothing to see here.
