The so long up domain is going away...

I have been thinking about it, and the time has come.

For a long time I held on to it due to licensing requirements of many old projects.

But those projects are long gone, and there is no longer a reason for it to stay, except nostalgia. 😞:-(

The site will come down by the end of the year.

Originally, I was going to offer them up to the many kind souls who made them possible, but we're past that now. They have scattered to the four winds and probably don't even remember that tiny little Access, VB, and Jet Red website from all those years ago.

So if you have any favorite utilities or tools or code from the site, you only have a little bit of time to download it.

If you want to host them, then you have my permission, with just three conditions:

  1. Give credit to TSI for the utilities;
  2. Point back to this very blog so people can find it;
  3. Accept thanks from me for bringing the TSI dream to others!

I will miss some pages like the 'Anyone can be provincial' page that I'll buy you dinner if you can get it out before it's taken down. And if you're a pretty girl I'll propose! 😏;-)

So raise a glass, and remember the glorious old domain. She served us well since the of 1996...

Well, TSI UnReplicator might be useful for those migrating to Access 2013 that no longer supports replication.

Can you at least take the Trigeminal robots.txt file down so that the Internet Archive can snapshot it?  Currently it's blocked, which is to say that they may have been snapshotting it anyway, but are preventing the rest of us from getting access to it.

Don't worry, I am going to work with Luke Chung of FMS to host the content as is. Problem solved!

Also, people are still clearly reading my Blog! ;-)

I'd asked Arvin to contact you to put it on "The Access Web", but FMS is certainly a great solution!

Maybe you should lift the ban on the Wayback Machine?

I have downloaded most of of (except for some broken links :-)

Converted all pages to html, with local links, so it can be hosted as plain html content (not .asp),

or stored locally, or distributed as a .zip

Let me know if you want a copy of that :-)

I wonder if you still have Access or Office source code access nowadays.
