Actually, FL was Created on 2000-05-31!

Yes now I recall, guess with time I am getting the dates mixed up a bit. In another 5 years computers from that era will be really antique.

About 6 weeks ago I rescued a pigeon, now he is very glad and doesn't wish to leave.
The entire experience is recorded here:

Nice to see you Vijay!

Thanks Corrine, just wanted to share that some of the computers from the era of start of FL are going for a good sum now on ebay. Someone brought this to my notice recently. Anything over 10 years is considered old in IT. FL was started almost 15 years ago. So check online and see if it is worth selling your old PC, donating it to someone else etc., before trashing it if you still have it around.

The computers we used when on Freedomlist are like dinosaurs now, the P2 and the P3s. No one even wants them. Saw a youtube video where one person even got an old P2 laptop for 3 bucks on garage sale once, felt quite touching to see. They still mostly work and do their job tho.

I still prefer to use an old P4 mostly. Still have the P2 - IBM Aptiva I used to access FL, it is still functional. This thread has served as a nice healing for FL days.

Nothing is forever, accepting and preparing for this in advance is good for the long term. Freedomlist.com served folks well and it is good we all have fond memories of that site. It is evident now that the time to move on came long ago. Let us all pray for the peace, well being and the moving on to more positive thing for webmaster, all the mods and members. It helps to focus on the good we can do in terms of learning, networking positively and supporting others no matter where we go from this point. There are a lot more sites today and more folks who need our support and interaction.

Best Wishes to all. :)

There is likely a deep reason for such a hostile behavior towards almost all members. Check the link above.
The one thing I personally observed was that most FL members were simple, small time folks who wanted to share
a bit, get some help and move on. So, many things can happen in the bigger scheme of things. However, I am always nice to the small, simple person no matter where they are from. This is peaceful and kind.

Yes, one of the most vital things I noticed was that most FL users were from US. He shared anti US sentiments in his replies to some of my posts. This indicates a very vital point that shows his core thoughts.

Yes, given the change at Freedomlist in its last few years and even more intense changes in the last few months, I was wondering if the site was hacked and someone wanted the forum closed. Cause for a long time the webmaster was very nice, open and friendly. Towards the end he had changed 180 degrees completely. Such a personality would never put in time to open such a forum and assist others. And if it truly was the webmaster and he changed so much, can't help wondering what made him do this big change in personality ? Medications perhaps, some real big personal challenge, personal failure or even disappointment with freedomlist itself maybe. New members were not joining, most of the old members were posting irregularly, so perhaps even web traffic was decreasing.
