okay - I'll have to hook up with the ftp client and see if I can find the wiki files anywhere on the server.
Although I've got a vague feeling they were hosted offsite somewhere.

(looks through forum copy on his computer)

got a wiki folder - but no database in it.

Looks like we installed the front end of the wiki on the forum and it either created a database that's gone awol or linked to an external server where the database has gone awol.

We did have database problems last year and I suppose it's possible that one of the ones the server people had an issue with was the wiki database.

I'll keep looking.   Thumbs Up

The history disk is on the way but my pdf files have been made minus as much as six letters deep at the right margin. I don’t remember if this condition was present in the original wiki. Sad

All but three pdf files are chopped and the text etc is missing. I also found two more intact pdf’s (7.5mb) that are subject related but not part of that package. I will try to post these directly to this admin forum.

Not a good idea, since I have no hosting link or posting them directly they are too big.

Okay, I have the disc of "Historia de la Honda" in my hand. After Mother's Day I will have a computer again and can upload them.

Massi - WTF? It's called a sling. You use it to throw rocks farther and faster than you could otherwise. That's all.

thomas I've increased the size of pdf files you can attach to a post. Once you upload it's stored in the main forum attachment directory for perpituity.

So please attach any pdfs you can Smiley
