Very very cool. Thank you for all the work I know this meant for you. It's a great service to Mac users.

Here's the last issues.
In August of 1995 I started the UnOfficial Information Alley (UIA) project with the express intention of repurposing already extant content for easier, quicker, and fuller access. The project started small, with only one mirror and grew to has as many as 8 mirrors, some behind firewalls, most completely open to the public.
At no time during this project did we receive any money or product. Every mirror, every Admin gave their time selflessly because they believed in the ideals of UIA and The Macintosh Way. We tirelessly refined the site, making it accessible, fast, and refined.
I am very pleased with the site, w/ its progress, and how much I've learned during this project. All Good Things must end, and with this issue UIA ends.
It is now public knowledge that Apple is refining their systems internally to deliver much better WWW support. What most people do not already know is Apple has provided excellent WWW resources for the past 2 years. I've not been allowed to reveal what I did know for several months about these projects and will not do so now. I can say you will be VERY pleased with them.
Yesterday Wayne Brissette left Apple for a new position. Wayne has not given me permission to reveal the company, but I wish him success.
According to my exchanges with Apple Computer, I see no reason the Admins cannot retain the content on their servers. I inquired if this would be permissable and Apple was silent, so the Admins can decide, on their own, if they wish to continue hosting the content. Depedent on their decisions, I might maintain and refine the pages simply for posterity's sake.
Where do we go from here? I am moving my time to another project I've been spottedly involved with over the past few months. I will post a URL to this project on April 9th for everyone to explore. Further, I am going to start an irregularly published article on what Apple's WWW sites have to offer, there exists mountains of information people are missing: I aime to change that. As is my tradition, this will not be an Apple endorsed activity, which allows me greater freedom and, frankly, they need to focus.
It is my belief this project succeeded at all the goals I set for it, and, in that, I am very proud. The following people deserve everyone's applause and commendations. Please send them an email saying THANKS!:

WWW Server Admins:
Peace, long life, and prosperity to all...
