Hi Shetlinkers,

 

Many of us mourned the loss of Shetlopedia, and I was especially sad to see all my politics research disappear. However, I was able to recover a 400mb .txt file that contained every single page from Shetlopedia on it and have used that to rebuild the politics section that I had on the site. 

 

You can access it here: http://jarlmedia.com/Home

 

I am of course ever interested to hear from anyone with additional content to add, mistakes to highlight or pictures to supply.

 

I'll probably come back with specific requests for fellow history buffs to help me identify!

 

Cheers

James

 

PS if anyone wants to help rebuild Shetlopedia let me know. I'm not interested in doing it alone as it's a massive job!

I hope you've got good security on your site so it doesn't get buggered up again.

Yes it got hacked. JA Stewart has some of the material on his Shetland History website. Some pages are still available through  https://archive.org/
