Somewhere around here I have an actually archive of Pagan's *actual* bulletins and short stories. If I can find it, I'll upload it. If any of you have any related documents or files, feel free to upload them here.

I used to have a bunch of those kind of files around here.  I have not looked for them in a while, so no idea where they could be and with 80 TB have data (yes I am a digital hoarder too) on my main workstation, it would be a job to try and find them.  But, that being said, I will try and take a quick peak and see what I can dig up.

If you can find any of it, upload away. No ZModem necessary. 

I just ran across that archive recently, and spent an evening reading through it until it got too esoteric for me and I didn't understand any of the references - must have been after I had opted out of Citadelphia. But I just stumbled across it by accident, and I know it is there somewhere among my collection of old digital docs. 

I just have to find it.

This is where I think Linux command line GREP searches would be excellent, if I understood more about how to Grep.

Oh, the grep part of the process is easy, just pipe it to grep;  "| grep Pagan"   The hard part is the damned find command itself. The syntax options for that part are the challenging thing to conquer.  I have all my old BBS files (what I still have) either on my windows HD, or on them old 5.25 and 3.5 floppies that may or may not be readable anymore.

Yeah, find is one of those unnecessarily complex and exoteric Linux shell commands that make you really appreciate how much Microsoft and Apple did to make the user experience accessible to, you know, users. I can put together a find statement - but I need a reference manual every time. 

The problem is, to use Linux find and grep on my NAS, I'd have to mount a SMB NAS share from my NAS to a Linux box - and now we're talking about even more commands I don't quite remember but remember aren't very transparent to get working right. :) 

And therein lies the source of my procrastination. But - if I went through all this effort, I am sure Linux, find, and grep would point me right to the document folder I've misplaced.

Well, if you already have it on an SMB NAS, then just connect to it from your windows box and use their search ability.  It scans inside documents too.  Then you don't have to worry about the Linux commands at all.  ;)

I didn't know Windows search scanned inside documents. I have tried searching that way, and didn't come up with anything. I'm suspecting that it is on an external drive or one of the other 5 or 6 systems I have lying around here - possibly on the Mac G4 quicksilver. I need to power that one up and have a look.

Checking it out right now. 

It looks almost as complicated as the *nix Find command to set up! :D

Leave it to Microsoft to make a GUI driven thing as complicated as a CLI driven thing. :)

Still looking for this damn file. 

The problem is, I've got a 12TB NAS, I've got a 10TB USB backup drive, I've got 5 other external drives 5.25", all a minimum of 1TB - I've got 2 3" external drives, a 2TB and a 4TB... I've got 6 PCs it could be on... 

And I think the name is "the collected works of Pagan Flames"... but I could be wrong... 

But I know that the word "pagan" appears all over and in the document. 

I've got a literal mountain of storage and a single grain of sand somewhere on it that I'm trying to find. 

The worst thing is, recently I stumbled on the file - and thought, "Once I get everything set up, I'll come back here and grab it and put it on the Citadel. That will be nice for all the Citadelphians to have a trip down memory lane". 

But, I can't find it.

Something wrong with file directory permissions. Frickin' Linux.

The thing that is driving me nuts is that I just saw this file, and can't for the life of me remember where it was.

A place marker until I get a chance to fix the file permissions on directories.

Well, look at that - proof you existed, even in 1985!
