can you guarantee, in the next 10 years?

Now we know someone doesn't look at external websites for this reason.
can you guarantee, that your information on your website will be available in the next 10 years?
No, we can't guarantee anything, except that some information won't make even sense in the next 10 years :say-sticazzi:

send the write up to a magazine or newspaper for publishing so it will be archived in libraries forever.

Well, I bet that the person who posted that on the wall was someone from a disappeared club. So it might make sense.

an example of disappeared club: Nekochan!
Launched in the early 2000s the Nekochan platform attracted a substantial following over the following two decades and developed into the premiere hobbyist community which became the de facto documenting reference for the many hardware and software peculiarities, making them accessible to hobbyists without commercial service. The web site was self-hosted via a home DSL connection creating ongoing hardware maintenance and expense concerns, for which users helped with voluntary money donations. When Nekonoko's interest in SGI computers waned ... On May 20th, 2018, the Nekochan site abruptly disappeared from the Internet, without any notice to the remaining community members and without any attempt to provide an archival of the wealth of information that the community had accumulated.

There was a single Twitter post by Nekonoko claimed the site was taken down to concerns with the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation, but it is more likely that maintaining the site and dealing with the occasional recalcitrant user simply became an unwanted burden.

sort of Facebook for geeks and nerds?

Postby LordCrimson on Mon May 13, 2019 7:41 am

MessageWall reports a new question: "is this place a sort of Facebook for geeks and nerds so the world's retro computer fans can have a place to gather every single day?"

Probably geeks prefer being a user on a social as well as nerds prefer being a user on a mailing list, anyway, at Mark Zuckerberg's, they boast more than two billion users globally. DTB has fewer users than fingers in a human hand, but it's basically based on the same kind of connectivity that adds the value, what economics call network externality.

DTB is here for us, and only a certain kind of people want to join us to help with our projects, and it's valuable regardless of the number of users. So the difference with Social networks is that they are more valuable the more people there are who use it.

A series of auctions revealed that Facebook users value the company's service so highly that it would take on average more than 1000 USD to convince them to deactivate their accounts for a year. This doesn't mean much for the company's stock market valuation, but it's a good indicator that people find value in Facebook regardless of the many concerns raised recently, and it clearly demonstrates that the value you place on something isn't what you pay for it. It's what you would be willing to pay.

When people look at DTB, they don't look at a value to society like when they look at Facebook. When our team looks at DTB, we look at a value to our team, but in both cases, it's not something you can easily measure in dollars and cents, and both cases are a very different metric from a stock market valuation.

So, from this point of view, we are the same as a kind of Facebook for nerds or geeks :asd:

Weird that the doubt was not "sort of Facebook for l33t?"
The previous doubt must have been clarified.

It's all that really matters :say-loool:
