Yup. But I don't claim full authority.  This group has been together a while and that's why it's here.  We're gonna see how crowd management works.

Good Luck.

The Den's been around since the CNNSI days and is currently here, scout.com and at a private board called "The Alamo". I'm the only one posting there in honor of the late owner, Winged Helmet.

Yo.

Looks like it's high time to have everyone move over here from Scout, eh?

One more full day and it seems to me the place is toast.

Post by: Drew4UTk on July 14, 2017, 10:09:00 AM
'morn, folks.

Scout indicated the 16th.  I 'think' that is when they start their cut-over, but it doesn't necessarily mean that's the absolute time it's gone, in my understanding... but it means it has started and it will happen soon thereafter... like... hours or days at the most, after.  After they make the cutover, servers all over the planet will have to propagate to the new IP (pointing the domain to the right server).  I've seen that take a few minutes, and i've seen it take a few days. 

all I know for sure is that place is toast, as you said.  it'll be on borrowed time after Saturday.

Scout is shutting down?
Title: Re: The Den
Post by: Drew4UTk on July 14, 2017, 11:38:15 AM
Scout was bought out of bankruptcy by CBSInteractive- aka 24/7 Sports in late January.  The 'debtors server' agreement expired 30 June, and 24/7 announced their plans to collect all outlying webpages and put them under the same format around May.  This 'format' will effectively eliminate the boards we're familiar with on Scout, and will look+operate as the current 24/7 boards do... the content from Scout will be abandoned, and the rules which regulate the board will be altered to 24/7's agreements. 

we don't know how deep into Scout 24/7 will dive- they may cut-over every board, or they may cut-over only those which produce content (as in publish).  We just don't know, and they won't share (because i don't think they know either, truth be told).

that's pretty much it in a nutshell.  we've made a landing spot- and i intend to maintain it regardless of what some corporation does with their own property- this place is OUR property, and because of which we can do what we want to with it, and driven by the core group of posters/people we know.
Title: Re: The Den
Post by: SeattLion on July 14, 2017, 12:08:42 PM
Wow. Cool.

I have a site we can get to as well for whatever reason. A poster named Winged Helmet, from the late 90s at CNNSI, had his own board since about 2007-ish. He passed away 3 years ago but his son took over his business and maintains the box that "The Alamo" is on. His son keeps it up in his father's memory and I post the occasional "Morning All" because I can. I have admin rights.

From the article below

"On Sept. 26, 1920, the Independents beat the St. Paul Ideals 48-0. The winners would survive six NFL seasons, including one that featured Hall of Fame back Jim Thorpe."

Jim Thorpe was from a small town near Pottsville called Mauch Chunk. It has since been renamed  - Jim Thorpe.

afternoon y'all...


it's steady storming down here- hard rain, for hours now.  temperature dropped.  it's a bit of a reprieve. 


in light of that, and in the wee hours while y'all were sleeping, i optimized this place some.... cleaned up some files that were slowing things down, dumped six months or logs out of the database... and moved things around as far as presentation.  time well spent.

While I'm always happy with a win, I really wanted to see Pitt get smoked by 40.

Pitt did a masterful job of holding on to the ball, but they didn't score. When Penn State scores 2 tds and has the ball for all of 9 minutes, you know it's your day.

Gigem! How the hell are you?

The immortal Winged Helmet's site is currently down, but I can send an email to Dubya H Jr. to get it back up if the desire arises. After Ray ran everyone off in one of his famous rants, it was just Alta, VaBlue, Me and him for a few years. After Ray passed it was just the three of us for another year or so. After that, just me....  I can't remember if you heard but we've also lost Big Matt and PSA from the CNNSI days.

I created a private group on facebook, too, if you care to join us there. 

Still no word on Nolefan or NKOT.

I did hear about Big Matt RIP but not until after sometime after the incident.  He tried to break into the wrong apartment or something right?  RIP Vegetable Pimp.  

God...NKOT.  Haven't heard that name in awhile.  Did he hang around any of the other boards?  I don't remember seeing him once CNNSI went belly up.  
Title: Re: The Den
Post by: SeattLion on August 29, 2018, 04:54:22 PM
NKOT left before CNNSI went away. I remember him thanking everyone for the conversation in typical NKOT fashion then he was never heard from again. 

Big Matt thought he was breaking into his own apartment (He typically left his keys at home when he'd go to the local bar). All of the buildings in his complex looked exactly alike and in his drunkeness, he went to his window but in the wrong building. The first time, the tenant walked him out. The second time, he fired.
