I wrote to the publisher today to inquire about a PDF of Brian's Book. Will substitute in the biblio the 38page pdf link that we have. Best we can do for now. Archive.org only goes so far with the Irish Times link which I just checked. Thanks Christie for the heads up. We all have eternal appreciation for Brian and his writings.

FYI, almost daily another link goes away on SirBacon.org. That's the tragedy of the internet. Websites come and go, people become excited and produce content, then lose interest or die. Even since the B'Hive launched we see links disappearing way too often.

As the SirBacon "web guy", it's good for me to know about bad links. Do I have time to fix them?

SirBacon.org has thousands of pages since 1997 and even more links on these pages, certainly over 100K links. I would venture a guess that thousands of links are no longer any good. That is a not a good thing at all and hurts our web reputation. Google actually will penalize us for bad links. But it would take a team of volunteers to seek out and research links that work to replace the bad ones, and then the fixes would take countless hours to fix by actual developers. Just this year Lawrence and I have spent so many hours trying to clean up the biblio or other pages. It's putting out fires, like a "Whack a Mole" game.

Anyone out there rich like the Oxies who will pay for Bacon's Truth? I'd volunteer my time to lead a team, but I have to scramble to pay my bills from paying clients every month barely getting by. Lawrence busts his behind doing photography and video to pay his bills. We do not have the money of the Strats or Oxfarts. 

Truth is we are as Bacon was in his lifetime, striving to build a perfect utopia on a slim budget with debtors on his heals. He spent way too much asking for financial help. Bacon/Shakespeare, worrying about his bills when he was the voice of the modern English language? And the rightful heir to the Tudor Crown?

Christie, if we had a million dollars, you are my first choice to find and discover the I can't even imagine how many typos on SirBacon.org that we would fix with resources to do so! 😉

This specific forum is moderated, so if there are any replies either Lawrence or myself needs to approve them. 🙂

I hear you. Thanks for all you do, Rob and Lawrence! I was thinking I would try to avoid using links so much and just use "descriptive hints" to the URL without creating an actual link, unless the site is extremely stable.

I wish I were a better proofreader. My boyfriend is way better at it than I am.

You all are doing a fine job with this beautiful site. I am sorry I have made more work for you.

Many thanks,

Christie

That you, or anyone in fact, actually reads what is on the site makes all the work worthwhile. 

I am usually overwhelmed with what I need to do balancing with what I want to do. Either way there is not enough hours in the day, or days in a year. And as we get older we realize there are not enough years in a lifetime. 

Bacon knew that last idea, and somehow made sure he and his works would be Eternal. 😉

Good thinking, Christie. I'll try and do same. "You all are doing a fine job with this beautiful site." I second that, as I'm sure we all do!
