/retro/-Where the 90's and 2000's Live On CaesarDude 09/06/2019 (Fri) 23:05:29 No.1
Alright, this is meant to be a successor to /y2k/ on the old 8chan, however I have expanded it to include both the 1990's and the 2000's and NSFW content is allowed, provided it's actually related to the purpose of this board and doesn't violate any of the site's core rules.
>>337 >Then I'll live in the past Well, this is certainly the right board for doing just that.
>>337 >The Reddit-tier neon-grid-pattern crap is a serious oversimplification of what was actually going on culturally in the '80s. this and >Then I'll live in the past. this. I just bought a Sony Sports Walkman from someone, he'll send it in the post. It should be arriving pretty soon, it's a WM-F45 I believe. Should be a hell of a player! It's even water resistant. You can dunk it and it'll be fine, so it's perfect for the gym. Missing file >>1705

I was going to make a football board, with an archive thread of past football players and their skills, but in light of recent events i will make it some other day/year. Here's an extract of an old VHSrip i found, it was going to be the OP file but i supposed it would fancy being here, just for the kicks. Man this thread had more posts IIRC. Missing files >>1707

>>575 Something about that washed out VHS video made me feel warm inside. Got any more VHS rips?
>>575 >Man this thread had more posts IIRC An autist who shall not be named managed to become BO of /retro/ and nuked the board, Robi did his best to restore it but the backup was missing the last hundred posts or so.
>>575 it did have more posts. some retarded shit happened though... >>373 to re-post what was lost, yes it arrived in the mail (like 4 months ago) and it's still going strong! Sony really made some good stuff.
I changed the CSS to Nineties Cheese to give the board a bit of a unique look, but if anyone doesn't want it please say so.
>>594 How about this? 400GBs of horror/action movies from 80s/90s, all VHS rips. magnet:?xt=urn:btih:553cd207f5601ddb9e6aa78082dc7602c390e6c6&dn=vhs&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.openbittorrent.com%3A80&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Fopen.demonii.com%3A1337&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.coppersurfer.tk%3A6969&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Fexodus.desync.com%3A6969
>>887 Sweet, thank you! I was actually looking for this, it was posted on another board (or another IB not sure) and I forgot to save its magnet.
>>887 I'd download this if I had a bigger hard drive.
Are we finally moving here? This board is in desperate need of some CSS btw, maybe the new BO can transfer the theme from Alogs?

>>989 Perhaps you will enjoy this theme I made back on 8chan. I don't know if it will work here though https://pastebin.com/raw/nXJ1md1c
>>989 I added the futaba theme for that early imageboard feel. But we can use the 90s cheese theme if thats what everyone wants. >>990 Looks cool, and looks like it works. Let me know if you guys like this one or not.
>>994 Eh, it doesn't look quite right. The code needs to be modified for Lynxchan. I might have time to look into it in a few days, if you don't want to do it.
Possible alternate banner image from /comfy/.
Well looks like our files aren't getting restored after all. I could nuke the entire board and repost everything manually but I don't have the time or the autism to do that. >>996 Go ahead man, it would take me forever. >>1006 Thanks I added it.
>>1044 >Well looks like our files aren't getting restored after all. Care to spell out details for us all, BO? What happened exactly?
>>1045 >The download keeps cutting off halfway through, but even if we could download it we probably wouldn't be able to use it - we prefer having a live board to scrape from. We only migrated /retro/ because it was relatively small and easy to do with existing tools.
>>1051 Looking at the bright side at least that gives us excuse to repost them and discuss them again
>>1051 Well, that's interesting. I assume 'we' in this case is the Anoncafe Administration? Also, how exactly does the 'scrape' from a 'live board' (Alog/retro/ ?) happen do you know? Are the JSONs pulled, the HTMLs, or what? Also, what download 'keeps cutting off halfway through' I wonder?
>>994 Nineties Cheese author here, I'm personally not a fan of the new theme and am using the default Yotsuba. Ideally I would adapt NC for anon.cafe but only if the other anons are interested. Just my 2c.
>>1067 I agree, although I might like the new theme if it looked the way it's supposed to.
>>1067 >>1068 As much as I appreciate the cheese I would really like a proper Windows 98 theme.
Well then let's see how the 90s cheese looks on anon.cafe. >>1056 No idea, but the archive was uploaded to anonfiles and I usually have the same issue when I try to download larger files from there.
>>1044 https://pastebin.com/raw/v4f5M1iR I done it. But this CSS looks very good too.
>>1113 Looks good. Might need a few tweaks though, I'll try to do them when I have time. >>1114 I can see what you were going for, but there are too many beveled buttons where there shouldn't be, and also some misalignment in certain elements like thumbnails.
As you may have noticed, I've been restoring missing files and posts from the archive. Looks like the .ogg file format isn't allowed on this site, I asked them to allow it so I'll wait and see what happens before I start converting everything to mp3 lol

Alright I think that's everything. I know it looks bad but there was no other way to have our files back and a lot of posts didn't make sense without them.
>>1708 Thanks for all the effort BO, I feel your pain. >t. fellow BO
>>1708 thanks man, we appreciate it.
Any way to restore vidya's thread OP pic?
Open file (131.43 KB 1395x375 asdf.png)
>>1768 No OP pics in the backup, but I could probably find a few of them on archive.org
>>1768 No. Lynxchan has no way to change/add to any post's images, only spoil/delete them, at least at the BO level.

>>1779 Does it have to be the exact same pic?
>>1781 Is this thread lying to me then? >>730
>>1795 >immediately just impugning others Lurk moar. That post was made by Robi back on the previous incarnation of /retro/ on Julay World, after it became nuJulay. Any files that didn't get moved over in the transition would re-appear if someone just posted them anywhere, b/c hashes==same. Pretty well spelled-out in the 'lying' thread you linked, friend.
>>1796 Just delete the thread if it's so woefully outdated and misleading, instead of relying on people having to read mountains of text to get some crossboard meta dramashit nobody has any interest in, ya nigger.
Why delete the Retro Ad thread instead of changing the name to "contain" the topic?
Did you or OP delete the 1990s thread?
>>1844 That thread was a shitfest. >>1846 Wasn't me. Either OP deleted it or he got a global ban.
>>1881 Aww and I was planning on saving a lot of those retro ads too.
>>1881 >That thread was a shitfest. It only had 3 or 4 posts, calm your guns you buffalo
