Not an accessible one. Every single post that was made under the old hosting should be present here, barring a few now-irrelevant ones that were archived. If it's so old as to go back to the first iteration of the forum, it is Lost Forever.

My email quoting the above link is dated 16 December 2008, so presumably whatever I referenced is earlier than that, and perhaps not too much earlier. I looked at Bill's own posts from that date backward/earlier, but no joy.

The Wayback Machine also does not seem to be able to help here.

I am not sure where to put the link, though. Perhaps in a Global post that's at the head of every individual forum? Let me experiment.

Not necessarily the best solution, but, for now, I have added an announcement to the Orientation and Updates with the link to the Google Search feature. Use the Back arrow to return to the Forum from the search page, and close any open window or tab found by 'view topic' to return to the search page.

I have made a couple of changes. The 'Google Search' now appears as the first entry in 'The Worlds of Robert A. Heinlein' and the post has been made into a Global announcement so that it appears in all of the sub-forums.

The Google Search can now be used to search the Forum, The Society's website Concordance or the web.
