Hotline users may fondly remember the Tabard Inn server that went
offline a few years ago. Now it's last remaining decendant, the "Rpg
Diner" is shutting down.

I realize a lot of people frown on P2P file sharing, and will be happy
that there are no longer any RPG servers on Hotline. But it's still
sad to think that a lot of old D&D files are going to vanish forever.

Last call at the Diner.

if they're on a P2P network, they are, by definition, on somebody's
computer, and thus will not be vanishing forever. they'll just sit
around until the monster-anarchist party takes over washington and
repeals all forms of copyright forever, then get mass-uploaded to
usenet, ftp, and a gajillion websites in a yencoded digital orgy.

What, that's not happening *now*?

Well, maybe not the ftp or websites, but what's been happening on USENET
then?

Goddamn. I hate to think what it'll be like when things get busy.
