    Hi everyone, When Titor was posting, TTI was running on an old version of Ultimate Bulletin Board: https://web.archive.org/web/20010422203520/http://www.xone.net/tti/board/ubbhtml/Forum1/HTML/000433.html Somewhere along the line, those original threads got corrupted/lost. Whether that was caused by the software acting up or Mop's server just eating itself, I can't say. Remember that Titor's first thread broke after it hit 11 pages and that the server itself seemed to have consistent issues (especially near the end of Mop's ownership). I do know that Mop didn't purposely delete any of that information. As you've seen with TTI/Curious Cosmos over the years, converting and updating sometimes causes data loss or corruption. That's just how it goes with personal websites sometimes, and we're talking about very early forum software. Back then, most free/afforable forum scripts were pretty rickety. By the time I came around, all that remained of the original threads were: 1: Darby's own copies he'd saved to his personal Dropbox 2: An export Mop gave me of the corrupted content (basically just a text file with a lot of encoded character garbage that needed cleaning up) 3: Archive.org's copy of the site I used all three of those as references to reconstruct Titor's threads. However, IP addresses weren't part of the archived content because viewing that was a function of the original software pulling that info from the database on the fly. There was never a way to recover any of that, even before we moved to the xenForo software in 2012 or when I took over in late 2014. While I was messing with that stuff and getting everything migrated to my own server, I asked Mop about the IP address out of curiosity. He told me that at the time, he'd looked it up and it ended up tracing back to Celebration High School. He didn't have the original IP address and didn't share the method he used to look the IP up. He only had that one bit of information to share.

    If everyone will remember with me... it it was my wife’s passing that I left here. its been 10 years ,Jan 25.2009 KerrTexas was a solid support at the time and I will always remember him for it. also like to say hi to Einstein and HDRKid (lol) Paula was receiving a regular bashing daily,back then, and I see the tradition continues. I did get to speak to her quite a lot back then and have missed our conversation.

    You can always GREP through the text files and see if any of the header info(or dates) pop up. —————- I'm truly not as fascinated with the entire TITOR story line than I was with the science behind it all. if it wasn’t for RMT and Darby I never would have ever been able to wrap my mind about it.

    The Carrington CME event happened back in 1859 and there is evidence that such an event happens around every 150 years. 1959 would be 100 years and then add 50 more years and you'll get 2009. We are ten years past the average time for another CME event. The difference is that we now have our homes connected to many miles of conductors. I expect that it may be wise to have a few fire extinguishers handy. I have seven large ones standing all around the house. We may receive a warning of around 24 to 48 hours? Now try to think of what life would be like after another CME and plan ahead by reading books like: Lights Out, One Second After, and the fifteen books written by, Joe Nobody called: Holding their own.
