Welcome to the new OpenBSD Journal
On April 1st 2004, much to the surprise and confusion of most readers, they announced the retirement of the journal. Initially, people didn't realize they weren't just pulling an April's fool joke, but were dead serious.
When reality dawned upon the readers, there were two questions. What happens to the existing archive of articles and comments? And who is going to step in and fill the gap? Initially, I just wanted to copy the web pages in case the original server would suddenly dissappear completely. Studying the PHP generated pages, relatively simple patterns emerged, and I started writing a CGI that would allow to browse the archive backup read-only, to preserve the over 1100 articles and 14000 comments, which might otherwise be lost.
Jim and Jose kindly gave permission to use the archive, those articles and comments are copyright of their respective authors. So the primary goal, preserving the vast pool of information and entertainment from the original OpenBSD Journal is achieved. I'd like to thank both Jim and Jose for their hard work during all those years, and for allowing their work to be preserved here. Thank you!
Well, it turned out that adding support for submitting new articles and comments wasn't much of a deal after that, so here's my proposal for a new OpenBSD Journal. There's much to be done, both in code features and, most importantly, in editing new articles. Volunteers are most welcome, drop us a mail. -- Daniel Hartmeier, April 9th 2004
