How did they fare in the ezBoard crash? If anyone was hurt more than we were, I imagine that it would be them.

They got toasted--main forum, 2005 minor league forum, Sox Draft Forum . . . Possibly more.

I've no idea if they're thinking about moving, but it doesn't really seem like it.

Looking at the Sons main page I would say they got f**ked as well, they have only 2 pages, unless they archive everyday..

Wow - if we're this bummed out, they must be in mourning :(

They presumably lost threads celebrating their first championship in 86 years.

Indeed, all of the glorious 2004 season would be wiped out since deletions date back to April 2004. Very sad if they lost the "Win it for..." thread. That one got newspaper coverage.

Perhaps a Pooler who is registered over there can send our condolences. We know how they feel.

I didn't even think of the championship celebration. Wow.

That's interesting, because I think the Dickie Thon Fan Club that spun off the SOSH forum also operates on ezboard, and they survived intact. Their site didn't even have a slowdown.

From what I read there over the weekend they are planning to move off of ezboard at some point in the future. But my impression is that was in the works before the Ezboard fiasco.

It's not all gone. Look what I found - Curt Schilling chatting it up on SOSH -

Hey guys.

We kept the game threads, it seems. So the game threads from '04 are still around.

Win It For... survived as well.

Phew.

It became a book. Curt Schilling wrote the foreword.

I didn't buy it. Little too self-absorbed for me. Plus, my contribution appeared in Leigh Montville's book. :D

I wouldn't want to buy it, but I'd borrow it at a library or read it over an overpriced coffee at a bookstore. What's it called?
