The internet archive is pretty nice. I’ve had it bookmarked since Mteal first mentioned it a long time ago. For instance, the Pocket Essentials guide to the films of Orson Welles is still available at the internet archive site even though it was pulled from the net. Here’s the link that no longer works, but plug it into the internet archive and you can still view the full text of the book:
Not that the Pocket Essentials guide is all that interesting, but it does give a nice overview of Welles’ films for those who haven’t seen all of them.
But as to that tierranet web site, I’d have to think that anything posted there is presumptively bogus. It may have been a good web board at one time, but later on it became outrageously bad. For those of tender sensibilities, I wouldn’t fish around at the internet archive site for old postings made to the tierranet board.
