Not even backdoor CoB,O access anymore

Post by ConchRepublican »

For those interested - for years there were ways to access the back pages of the CoB,O site without going through the front door if you will. I hadn't checked in almost a year, but I used to enjoy walking through the FAQ and knowledge sections . . . learned a lot about Bubba's formative years from there.

Anyway it looks like everything is down now, no response, Chrome can't connect to anything cobo.org.

The domain is still active and registered though 4/19/2015 to Christopher Wilson.
He (or someone) renewed the domain on 4/20/2010 for another 5 years.

The *backdoor* directory structure may have changed or the files may have been taken down
or the host for the domain may have fizzled or Chris (or someone) may have just given up
on keeping the directories alive.

I'm personally glad that there's no way to do that. It's refreshing to come to old fashioned message boards like this that are free, for the most part, of all things Facebook.

That was the first Buffett site I found when I first got online which is also about the same time I became a parrothead (insert grinding dial up sound here).

I think one of the first Buffett related sites I stumbled upon on the innerwebs was The Lost Troubadour Society who's credo was very similar to that of the Church of Buffett, Orthodox.

You absolutely can do that! You just type something like, "Hey, Auntie, that was a really amusing comment you made!" :D

But typing is soooo 2009! I'm looking for a single click. Even better, maybe I could just shift my eyes to an icon on the screen and a thumb will appear. :D
