    Default When did halen.com close?

    For the first time in awhile I decided to check out halen.com to peruse their build threads and noticed it was gone. When did they shut down?

    I know about a year or two ago they had an issue that screwed with some of their more active members being able to log in, but I didn't know it shut down completely.

    It's a crime to lose all of the information contained in their build threads. It's like seeing the Red, Black, and White Striped Library of Alexandria go up in flames.

    Did we lose that information for all time?

    I got a lot of little tidbits for my Kramer 5150 build there. And often checked on Shark builds. Sucks...
    VH III is Ed's solo album. So everybody who keeps saying they wish he'd do one needs to stfu and listen to III. Then stfu again.

    I know somebody (who I'm not sure if they want to be named) that has backups and the source to Halen.com and this site. He will probably put up the backup of Halen soon.

    There's no way anyone has backups of the database of this site but me.

    As far as I know, he does have all of that saved.

    That's good to know. I hope they are back up and running soon. Great builder community over there.

    I was able to find an archived version with the internet wayback machine which got me all the way to the thread titles, but the actual threads don't appear to have been crawled and saved. Bummer

    Any time table on when the full archived version will be up?

    He hopes to have his archives (which include a ton more Van Halen oriented stuff) up and running sometime around March.
