Waybackwhenmachine doesn't quite capture the moment, but at some point between 17th October and 12th November 2004 someone seemed to pretty much pull the plug on the site. Shame, whilst I never really used the forum their I did read the news section they published.

Someone has been sitting on that name for a while and now their window has opened. I'd appreciate the long game if it's someone from years ago still holding a grudge.

Inner eye opening to the stepped scarlet pyramid of the Eastern Seaboard Fission Authority burning beyond the green cubes of Mitsubishi Bank of America,
and high and very far away he saw the spiral arms of military systems, forever beyond his reach.
And somewhere he was laughing, in a white-painted loft, distant fingers caressing the deck, tears of release streaking his face.

When it all goes quiet in our homes, and our loved ones are snoozing next to us, some of us can still hear the screaming.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I loved that forum. I loved the drama, the fights. Back in 2004 I was a research student in Sheffield. I basically had no life in reality as I didn't know anyone and spent my days in the library. This forum was my social outlet

Does anyone know what happened to richeyedwards.net? I recall reading it in the early days of lockdown. It was like a window into the late 90s design wise, but clearly made with love. Unfortunately it seems a spammer has bought the domain name now.
