Dave, was that MSN?

What does it take to start new again and run it ourselves ? is there something else besides ning that we could use and we could own it? And then pass it down to others. It's been done twice now. But all the history gets lost each time it seems . Apparently there is no way to save it especially the history of our brothers who have passed. Is it in someone's hard drives somewhere in the Ning universe?

Shannon, I've got the old history website saved on thousands of word documents. Damn was THAT a project!!! Still lost a lot of stuff there too, but I got 90% of it. Lost the photo gallery and all the captions though.

Dave what about all the Regimental history all those archives is that something you have saved somewhere all that work you have done over the years?

No, don't think it was chatter.

I try to post notices all over Facebook for the reunion, but that doesn't help the Dragoon Base guys. And Facebook is such a vast place that messages are easily overlooked, lost and forgotten.

Dave, I think “chatter” or something similar is what I was looking for.
