Is there any way to download it and put it one of this forum's topics as a "sticky" post? Even if we can't alter or add to it, it would be a good resource. If need be it could have a disclaimer that Bradley does not recommend or endorse anything in the file. (or whatever legal mumbo-jumbo is appropriate).

Habs,
If you don't mind, would you please post a reminder when you have the data base updated?

Thanks for your hard work on the recipe site.

Sure. That will be no problem.

I would have to say it would not be possible, without a tremendous amount of rewriting most of the information. The two forums codes are not 100% compatible, and there would be a lot of formatting that will be lost. Especially those write-ups with tables and bullets, and there are a lot of them.

On the site there is a set up so you can download the whole site. Just make sure to following the directions. Make sure to install the program first before you download the recipes


 Anything for MAC users? Looks like the download is for windows machines.... I would hate to loose all this info.

Thank you for this resource, it has been invaluable to me. I really appreciate it. I learned a lot, was able to make all the mods to my OBS, and cook/smoke lots of really good stuff. Good Luck, and again, Thanks.

Golden Section Labs only make a Windows version of GS Reader and GS Notes. Depending on what OS you are running, you may want to try a Mac program called CrossOver Mac Pro.

RedJada, I looked at the compatibility chart for Crossover and they don't list Golden Reader in the apps that they support.  I think your best bet is to purchase Parallels or VMware to run a virtual machine.  I had been using VMware for years and switched to Parallels and love it.  I hate to run Windows but some of the companies that I do work for their apps only run in Windows so I am forced to put up with the window environment.

 Thanks Sailor, I will check that out too. Hate to loose all that info. I'm willing to help to keep the site going but haven't seen any mention of anyone else willing to do so. It will be sad if the site just fades away. There is a legacy there, Too much time and work just to let it go off into the cyber world.

I am willing to donate to a fund for the purpose of converting those files or transferring them to another server.  It would be a shame to loose that collection.

Thanks also Raye. I would be willing to donate to this cause too. If someone picked it up we could do like a pledge drive say every February to raise the funds to pay for it. Kind of like PBS TV. I know Raye mention what it cost but it escapes me how much. I'm sure we could raise the funds and maybe we could even find some corporate donations also. So what do you all think? Is it feasible?
