    Smile Two Years Ago...

    ...a little site named Icrontic.com crashed into oblivion with no backups and its Folding@Home team stayed together and was able to regroup at the new Short-Media.com in no small part because of the help of the Folding Frogs here at PC Perspective. This is just another tip of the hat to those who helped us out during that time. Thanks, Frogs!

    Eternal thanks to the Frogs for their hospitality.

    Re: Two Years Ago...

    I don't think I was even around here 2 years ago...

    But anyways, you're welcome! Thank you for all you've done too; can't tell you how many frogs join up after seeing the movie!

    I know, tell me about it! Both our sites have come a long way since then, though.

    I think the same can be said for a lot of our team as well. Not as many remember the great leap we made via some lillypads, but hopefully some more members will be by during the week

    I know... I still mourn the loss of several threads, most especially Bart Williams' "Hammer" thread (He died not too long before the site crashed) and the "Who Wants to Start a Folding@Home Team?" thread that was a couple thousand posts long and showed the genesis of our team before we ever even had our own forum on the site. Ah well, we've built a new history now without forgetting our roots

    Indeed they were Oddly, I think it made the team stronger than what it had been. I mean... how many folding teams can say they survived the death of their host site?

    Cheers, Frogs!

    Well our server went down

    [doo-doo-doo-doo-doooooo]

    And it made us all frown

    [doo-doo-doo-doo-doooooo]

    Then our friends from the pond

    [doo-doo-doo-doo-doooooo]

    They strengthened our bond

    [doo-doo-doo-doo-doooooo]

    These kind little frogs

    [doo-doo-doo-doo-doooooo]

    sittin' here on their logs

    [doo-doo-doo-doo-doooooo]

    they helped us recoup

    [doo-doo-doo-doo-doooooo]

    and fished us out of the "soup"

    [doo-doo-doo-doo-doooooo]

    Now we wait here just sittin'

    [doo-doo-doo-doo-doooooo]

    and that really ain't fittin'

    [doo-doo-doo-doo-doooooo]

    'cause we want back our home

    [doo-doo-doo-doo-doooooo]

    for us to post in and roam

    [doo-doo-doo-doo-DOOO-doo----doodoo-DOOOO-doo doo doo....

    dooooooooooooooooooo

    wasnt "fun" so to speak , as they were going through the worst nightmare a forum could experience , "poof" But reading back through that thread and the posts from the folks who had just found the group again , you can still feel the excitement in them
