HAVE YOU SEEN THIS PAGE?
Thats a thumbnail of the front page to leisuretown.com before it was replaced.
This site is a mirror of leisuretown.com that was made, probably hours, after
the front page on the site was swapped with the current
"Thank you, goodnight" page. At that
time, the rest of the site's content was still available, and its mirrored here.
The thumbnail of it above is from the Alexa profile for the site.
So, this mirror is complete except for the old front page. If you have it
please e-mail talbert at siliconashes dot net, and send me a copy. However, please
don't e-mail me and tell me just to look in Google's cache, or on archive.org, as
if you'll do you'll find its been replaced in one, and blocked in the other.
If you don't have it, you may just not realize that you do. It could be in
your browser's cache. To check and see if you do, on IE 5 or 6, go to
Tools > Internet Options and then Click on the Settings button in the
Temporary Internet Files box. Then Click on the View Files button in the
resulting menu. There isn't an easy way to search the resulting list for a single
file, from a particular site. You can click the Internet Address tab, and order the
list alphabetically by the URL you used to access it. However, this can be a little deceptive
because any site that beings with "www" will be grouped with the W's in the
list. So, depending on whether you went to "leisuretown.com"
or "www.leisuretown.com", the file may be with the L's or W's, or someplace else.
Be sure to take a good look.
If you're using Netscape or Mozilla/Firebird type "about:cache"
in the URL textbox, and the click on the View Cached files link, then search
for leisuretown in the list of files. You can do this using your browser's
search feature, and search it like it was a regular web page.

Remarks about copyright and respect for the author
It would seem that around September of this year Tristan A. Farnon decided
that he wanted to disappear. Not only did he take down leisuretown, he also
asked that his stories be removed from
When leisuretown.com first vanished, it could still be accessed from
archive.org, but soon after it was blocked -- per his request, I would
assume. I don't know why.
The long and short of it is that if he contacts me, and asks me to take
down the mirror, I will. However, I hope he doesn't. Since putting it
up I've gotten a very positive reaction from everywhere I posted a
notice about it. A lot of people loved leisuretown, including me.
