I gave them $100 (to help offset costs that insurance won't cover).

I know - I was making a joke about his eternal promises about the tracker returning

His point, which is a good one, is that even with this devastation the internet access remained. HC has had no such devastation affect it - its problems are all induced by the behavior, choices and actions of one person (no natural disaster involved?).

Basically the archive lost a $600,000 scanner, and a relatively small part of their print collection that was being scanned. Fortunately the bulk of their print materials are kept in a different building. I don't know if the scanner was insured.

I'm not making light of it at all. IA has always been a fantastic resource for so much media. HC, not so much, but I really don't care about the politics, or it's improprieties. Never gave a dime to them. As with any tracker, it's about the members, and HC has a lot of very good people sharing their stuff freely, which is more than I can say about some other places. Too bad this bad blood had to happen. Oddly, nobody complained about the monthly donations for years and years, just when it went offline.

Re: What's with Hungercity again?

Do you guys consider that crocodile on HC main page to be a male crocodile or a female crocodile?
I don't get excited sexually, about the crocodile, so I would guess it's male crocodile

Did you use F5 to see the Latest New?


Changing hosts sounds really expensive. He'll probably need more donations.
