I've just had my memory challenged -- I'm participating tomorrow in a sort of nostalgic reminiscence about the early days of IT at St. Thomas and UNB. As a way of pinning down some dates I went back looking for early Inkshed newsletters -- and realized they've been lost to link rot. As I poked around the Inkshed.ca Web site, I realized that, since last spring the surviving Shedders agreed that it was over, the Web site and its ancillary documents (mainly the issues of the newsletter and the archive of CASLL and CASLL-L) need to be converted into an archive, and arrangements made for it to survive. I'm currently facing the same issue with my own Web site (the server it lives on is about to be decommissioned), so I'm looking at ways of doing that.
In order to start, though, I need to regain access to the Web site. I'm assuming the person to contact is probably Roger, but it's possible that Margaret or Tania, or someone else I'm not thinking of, might know how to do that. So I'm using what's left of the list to put out a general call for help. Anyone? (Email me off list, at [log in to unmask]).
There's not much I miss about academia since I began what Victor Brombert, on today's _New Yorker_ blog, calls my "permanent sabbatical." The Inkshed community, however, is something I do still miss, as I was reminded reading the last postings on the CASLL-L list.
