    Relics of My Past

    I was feeling nostalgic and examined some of my early posts. Then I ran into this:

    http://www.vbforums.com/showthread.p...ight=old+games

    For some reason, it won't let me download my old games I made even though its clearly there in my post. Some of these games I made as a teenager, and I'm 38 now. I honestly don't wanna lose my early work when I was younger. I'm sure theres a way to get it back, right?

    No such file or directory

    I get that error on the first post....but the other ones download for me...

    Good thing you saved the important files in your backup folder. (j/k)

    This site has been moved a few times over the years.... What you see is what you get.

    Rats. Cause I lost those files due to a harddrive failure some years ago.

    AND - Make note - I think we're going to purge some older posts... 2004 would probably be considered older...

    As I mentioned, some of the zip files in that thread are OK.

    EDIT: One of the main reasons we might purge older posts is to FIX this duplicate post issue.

    Have you tried searching the Wayback machine?

    The wayback machine not only had a harddrive crash in its history, the computers screen in the laptop went completely out, starting with inversing the colors for sometime then went out altogether. Was a 12 year old laptop anyways.

    I was talking about web.archive.org, but it doesn't appear to have saved any www.vbforums.com pages other than the top level Forums selection page, so no luck there.
    I guess you have to track down the 50+ people who have downloaded it, and maybe someone still has the zip or expanded zip hanging around somewhere. I know I have a lot of old machines, and old code hanging around, with downloads of other users code from the forums, but I'm sure I don't have these, as it isn't likely I came across them since I joined this forum over 8 years after that post.

    Its highly unlikely. It was 16 years ago since I posted what was at the time my old projects.
