The page is still there (don't have a link right now... <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/frown.gif"> ), but I think most people have dropped it from their sigs - takes up too much room.<P>------------------

Wait a second... there's something wrong there, but I can't quite put my finger on it...<P>Oh! I know! <P>My sig is longer than the body in that post. Classic faux pas. My apologies, people. ; )

Actually, I can't access the Lynch Vault site... What happened to it? It says I don't have permission to access /~mjm18/ on the server..

Yes, that's the problem with using university or college supplied webspace and e-mail... =p

i've got the code (v1.01), since i wrote a parser for it a while back. (well, *started* on one... it still doesn't expand nested properties) i sorta stopped working on it since JHUB's disappearance... i wonder how he's doing.<P>also, shortly before JHUB went poof, Symok said he was writing an avalon code generating wizard in vb. are you still working on it, Symok? if not, can i?

Hello Kitty realized that there was only one way to resolve this messy issue: an explosive orgy of mindless violence punctuated by a few snappy one-liners.

Why not? It's a really good service. I know, I use it. A lot better than any others, because they don't force you to put up ads or anything. They ask you to link to them in appreciation (which I do), but you don't have to. So I advertise them.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>well, i'd be glad to host a new Lynch Vault on avalonart.dhs.org, if the old one is really dead. that'll actually give it some content besides the fanart dump and oekaki... ^^;<P>...hey... i haven't told you ppl about the avalon oekaki yet, have i...? you're welcome to <a href="http://avalonart.dhs.org/oekaki/">visit it</a> and draw stuff ^^, i just haven't gotten around to writing a manual or tutorials yet.

Sorry about disappearing like that. Dialup just doesn't cut it for forum-surfing.
The server the Vault was hosted on impemented new disk quota restrictions in late June (the leeging bastards), so I had to take the Vault down until I get back to school in September and have my real server up. It <I>will</I> be back sometime in the first week of September.

Why not just accept neg's offer to put up the vault on avalonart.dhs? That's what I would do if I were you.
