I've heard there was an old board? is it still alive an acessable? I was wondering what BABB might have looked like once upon a time.

Here is a link (http://web.archive.org/web/20010603020457/www.badastronomy.com/wwwboard/index.html) that will let you see what it looked like in March 2001 (around the time that FOX aired that moon hoax show)... I don't think you can still post to it though.

That was a relative quick edit.

That version of the board was very difficult to administer, and took up too much of my time. I replaced it when I discovered phpBB, which is what BABB uses now. The software for the old board is now just recycled electrons. I don't have any copies of it anywhere. I just tried that link above, and while you can see topics, the links to posts don't work.

There was a very interesting thread, so I kept a copy on my own website. But it's a mess to keep up with. This new format is common to a lot of forums.

Here is another archive (http://web.archive.org/web/20000815063753/www.badastronomy.com/wwwboard/wwwboard.html) which does have some of the post content available. I notice that the posts include a few by HUb'
