I remember seeing the shed too glad I'm not totally crazy. I wonder if the admin has multiple personality issues. I wonder what the cost would be to own the server and the data storage equipment necessary to prevent this from happening again. I don't think Rusty or UB would do anything like this but you never know what will happen.

Less then $10 a month for a hosting package. about $10 a year for the domain name.

The Gazette is currently on a package on my resellers account. I do back ups of both forums on my end and the hosting company does weekly backups as well.

In case of catastrophic events happening to the server only a few days at the most would be lost.

My safe has all access codes and contacts in case something happens to me.

Yes I am a paranoid person.

Thing I've found to do is type them in a word processor save and then copy and paste to the forum.

tough to make  a long story short, but here goes.

the garage hangout was started by an anonymous person who became upset over something that happened at the journal. he never admitted who he was and only was known as admin.

he chose uncle buck to moderate the site. uncle buck did and did a fine job of it but as time went on the admin became more strange, paranoid or what have you. rusty had already started this site and became afraid that admin would take the gh site down, destroying all information. rusty and uncle buck discussed the idea of a backup site just in case.

their prediction was correct and almost before they had the site up, admin had pulled the site and all of it's contents.

the site that rusty and uncle buck set up over the period of literally a day or two become the garage gazzette as we all know it.

as a side note, for a short period of time the hangout had a rude message appear when it was clicked on. it then become a mexican food site (i would assume to mock former members) and after a couple months eventually just disappeared.

as odd as it may seem. to this day no one knows for sure who the mystery admin was, were he came from or what happened to him. there are several theorys but nothing to back them up.
