Where is "Only Randy Petersen" ? Answer: Randy wanted it hidden on his departure

I know Randy is leaving, but there was a lot of history in some of those posts. Are they now gone permanently?

Yes.

Randy took his football and his Forum and he's going home.

Darn--I was hoping it'd be open until midnight MST. There were still some threads I was wanting to read this evening.

There was some mighty fine writing and words of wisdom in ORP.

Here's what Randy had said about ORP Forum:

Maybe at some point in the future the House of Miles might ask for those ramblings back so that they can be on display in the Presidential Benevolent Dictator Library if that ever gets built(!).

Folks, I've just deleted a link that shows how to locate ORP (with no disrespect meant to the savvy person who posted). It was Randy's intent to "hide" ORP so that it not be accessed after his departure. There are some wonderful memories amongst his posts, and we will certainly miss being able to refer to them, but let's honor his wishes.
