Ditto for Delphi, The Source, etc. And Fidonet echos. Some of us tried
to collect and preserve the Delphi TI Forum about 20 years ago when it
was known to still exist on tapes, but nothing ever came of it that I'm
aware of.  

There will have been pieces saved here and there, but mostly on floppies or old,
failing hard disks or rotting tapes not stored safely, so if anyone
wants to archive them, they need to do it ASAP.
