After 3 years of hosting and maintaining The Spalted Board I am sad to
say that in 10/14/2005 it will cease to exist. It has been a good
project and a log of great material has been posted. Unfortunately,
things change. I no longer have the need for the server and to keep
personal costs down, I am going to be taking it off line. I also no
longer have the time to maintain the site or the server that it is on.
I want to take this time ti thank all of the participants and members.
You have been great. It was the content that you submitted that made
this site good for everyone.
Thank you all,
Nail a post to the Spalted Board. Free WW'ing software and forums.

The first thought would be to place it on a CD or DVD, preserving the
html to allow it to be "browseable" just as it exists today.
At a minimum, you could sell it for the cost of the media+postage, once
the disk format is set, the time investment would be negligible
publishing them would take some effort, in the form of editing and
production. once that was done it would be marketable, and likely
someone like Taunton Press might be interested in carrying it.
essentially they would be selling a CDrom and you would see a
percentage of the proceeds.
entering it into the google archives would be simpler. you'd need
someone to write you a script that took each article and posted it to
rec.woodworking. the pictures would still be lost though.
