The Big DumpTruck

Throwing Little Thought Pebbles at Your Windshield Since 1996

10 Years Ago in BigDumpTruck History

You know, I was all excited about dipping in to the archives to pull out some quotes from 10 years ago, but 10 years ago the Dump was sort of in transition and half the content was hand-edited and some but not all was on blogger, and the end result is that a lot of my content was lost when I moved from my ISP and they deleted a bunch of my files on me before I could copy them. Which is the long, round-about way of saying “Happy 10th Birthday” to Junior, who made his first appearance on “Mookie’s Driver Training Page” way back in the day. (Those pages are, sadly, part of history.)

If any of you are obsessed fans who laboriously saved every word I wrote to your hard drive, I’d be more than happy to have a copy of the archives. You know, as long as it wouldn’t involve me having to have personal contact with anyone who would have laboriously saved every word I wrote to their hard drive.

Junior and Step-Junior went for a morning of skiing with Mr. Dump, who will just be watching. I am as sick as a dog today, and am hoping to feel good enough to continue the birthday celebrations after they get home near lunchtime. Wish me luck!

    Kathleen – I did, but a lot of the content in question was before I was publishing under my own domain, unfortunately.

    Sweener – Junior thanks you!

    I was going to suggest the same. Have you tried substituting your old URL? It worked for an old site of mine that was closed down years ago!!

    None of it is there. Part of the problem is trying to remember what the old URL was, especially for my very first site on Tripod. And some of the content just appears to predate the archives.
