As some of you may have read in my other recent posts, I got an export of all the old data and photos from our old old forum. The one on "Website Toolbox" that many of us continued to refer back to for years until it eventually disappeared. Invison wants $650 minimum to do a custom import of this data to this forum, and it still might not work. So I decided to just upload some interesting stuff from time to time instead.

 

Here's a few gems to start. 

 

Matt did some digging through the garbled SQL and found this choice PM:

 

"Ive enjoyed this site for a long time. Just had to sign up and give the company perspective..............I am an insane shad/steelhead (plus trout + carp, etc locally) fisherman and undersdd the passion about losing a fishing spot.........in fact, my boss is kind of in charge of that stuff........I did let him know that closing it would be a bad PR move for the company, but trust me, millions of dollars are whats at stake here......we have been sued over this spot MANY more times than once in the last 20 years, and I am pretty sure we always lose these things. I am gonna talk to our lawyers about this..........I dont want to give any names on who to talk to yet.  I want to try to get the notion of it being public access again into my bosses brain (he\'s an engineer and these things take time!!). I would really like to get to you upcoming Carp outing in April, and talk to you guys in person about some things...........I'm pretty sure that I can get some very ;limited access to a few areas for an outing for a few of you guys........but I dont know when or how many, etc. So a person-person talk would be great. Please e-mail me."

 

That's Bill "Salmon Jesus" making first contact with Matt or me in early 2005. A few weeks later I had my first roll of Seaguar in-hand thanks to this guy. I also got threatened by a cop for fishing at Springton Lake later that Summer and handing him one of Bill's business cards. Those were the days! 

 

Willy turned 18 this year. Happy birthday buddy!

Ray Eich with a 29 from Kely drive- he caught this fish 10 minutes after a tournament with biggest fish in the teens. This is still a full 6 lbs bigger than any carp I've caught above the dam.

BTW - Did they give a good reason why they want so much to "import" the data ???  Unless there are some major format issues, I would think a basic FTP client with a site address and permissions could move the data from there to a system that could be setup to read and display the data and feed it to this site if it's got to do with platform compatibility. 

 

Just curious Lou.  :)  And, as Matt pointed out, a big "Thanks" to you for all you do to keep this site available.  It's one of a kind !!!!

Any way to copy and paste the old threads or save them and upload them somehow?

It's more complicated than that. Basically the different forum databases use a different nomenclature and they'd have to write a program to translate. For what they'd have to do, it's reasonably priced I guess. I mean I'd charge more than that even if I knew how to do it and it was easy for me.

That was my first mirror carp included with my first post after lurking for almost a year. Quite a story surrounding that fish.

 

Is the "Other Don" still around? Years ago I would see him frequently, but it's been a while.

 

Thanks Louis... you've certainly had a positive impact on a variety of people!

Boy what a memory that is!
