I think I have them. I'm on my phone right now, so I can't check.

Does anyone happen to have the last three archived newsletters? I attempted to access them all through http://web.archive.org/web/20110202221915/http://jbasicnews.com/, but #15, #16, and #17 are no longer available.

Thanks,
Joe




As an alternative, look at the Wiki for Just Basic, which has a link at the bottom of the forum's main page.

I wish someone would resume writing and publishing a JB newsletter. Activity on the forum is very low recently, so very little chance that anyone skillful enough will take the lead for this.

Tooanalytical,

I know the JB Wiki has a few things and the LB Wiki has a lot more. Just thought I'd glean as much background information I can for my own personal "library" as a reference. It's amazing the amount of info I can pull up with the wikis and forums (most of which is above my skill level).

Regards,
Joe

I have uploaded them to the Files Site:
JB Newsletters #15 #16 #17
I can't remember is these were already available at the Wiiki, in any case I would say that these files are available temporary.

About the low activity, it is normal for all the forums, except sports related forums. All of them had decayed a little, some forums are not more online. We are lucky. Social networks took over. But we are still here.

I can't say I've much/any experience with social networks, but a technical discussion forum like ours seems unsuitable for a social network thing to substitute for it(the forum). JB conforum lets us choose a category in which to put a topic for discussion, and we can see the basic forum outline from the home-page; and we can pick link downward from any main board or forum and find what category we want to review.
