So, with boost projects on the shop floor and another on the horizon, I have been trying to access the data and forums off of RPS. Seems like they went down in 2016.

Anyone know a way to still access the data from there? Tried the wayback machine, but no luck.

I don't know of any way to access it, but have you joined up on the TurboRanger forums? There might be some good info over there too..

Seems to me that @Jim Oaks was talking to the RPS owner some time ago about preserving the information they had over there. Or, maybe I'm just blowing :poop: outta my backside.

I think all of that info is gone for good at this point. They've supposedly been working on it since the site went down years ago. It sucks for the community because there was a ton of good stuff posted there over the years that most of the other Ranger sites simply didn't talk about. You might be able to reach out to the mods of their Facebook page and get an update I suppose. Maybe they've had some kind of breakthrough in the last couple of years since I looked into it.

No, that part's definitely correct. He was reaching to Jim Carnes (sic?). I can't remember what he said the response was, if any.

I tagged him, so maybe he'll chime in and tell us. :dntknw:

A moderator there now owns the rights to the site, and has been saying for almost 3 years that hes been working on it. I honestly don't think anything has been done. All that info didn't just vanish, it has to still be on a server somewhere, someone just needs to do some work reviving it.
