Thank you! The Archive is very interested in VHS tapes of material that never made it to digital.

Oh hey I'm glad I could give back! I'm obsessed with you guys! I couldn't believe he was going to just dump them! So when I found that out I panicked! I was going to give him other suggestions but I woke up in the middle of the night, hopped (well slid!) in my wheelchair, went to his auction and whaddya know! He's in California too! <BR><BR>So I was SOOOO excited! YES! I BEGGED him! I suggested he ask the archive be named after his deceased Grandfather!<BR><BR>Now all I have to worry about him following through with it!Please keep me/us posted!<BR><BR>Hey is anyone currently digitizing VHS tapes there? It looked like it was going to start up again with a few early 2000s tapes by the archiver who does that and then nothing.<BR><BR>I have written several messages volunteering but no response! With a little guidance I REALLY want to restart it because the clock is rapidly ticking with those! <BR><BR>GREAT John I'm glad I can help! Thank you for everyone else who runs this TRULY histori and crucial site!<BR><BR>When us nerds were the majority of the internet in the 80s and 90s, archive is what we dreamed about!<BR><BR>Sean
