I just tried to follow another longtimer's success story and hit a "Time Barrier". I could no longer travel back in CSN before February, 2011 - it's gone. This is a disaster. Thankfully I've already seen, learned and pondered from a lot of others' invaluable experience across 10-12 years these past four years. It really, really makes a difference to us. And now I am po'd. The CSN Search results have gotten worse, now this. WTF. CSN needs to restore our past posts.
1. Like most, I don't have a medical residency or oncology practice. Our cumulative experience here is my experience base. This is a large part of how I anticipate problems with my wife, see differences and options, decide what to research ahead, and deal with things when --it hits the fan. Being able to look back ten years across all this varied experience, through the nooks and crannies, is very important - Life and Death.
2. I've been invited to write a medical case history. My wife is the most successful multiple, conglomerated para-aortic, etc. case for several experienced doctors. They know we do things a little differently. Our first visit with my wife's second surgeon the next year after her surgery, he looked at us a little sadly when we walked in the door again. He relaxed and smiled a lot when he realized this was mostly a "well baby check". Some of my notes and views then might only survive here. One note book drowned, another was stolen, and I'm moving a fourth time soon, sometimes while not being there...
3. I miss people we can never share with again. Sometimes the old posts seem like a visit with a long lost friend.
Repeal the "Memory Hole".
