Hi all,

 

I am not sure how many of you know about this forum:

http://ompf2.com

It started as a replacement for the great ompf forum, which focuses on ray tracing, both from an academic point of view and more hobyist oriented. Obviously you are welcome to join this forum to stay updated on the latest and greatest advances in ray tracing, both real-time and off-line.

Recently (as in: today smile.png ), we added a blog, which will provide daily (hopefully) news from ray tracing land. Url:

http://ompf2.com/blog.php

 

Hope to see you there,

- Jacco.

 

EDIT: fixed url to blog.

Didn't the header use to say "temporary replacement"? I guess it was about time we faced the cold hard truth sad.png

 

I like the blog initiative. Want to see more smile.png

Yeah, sad story I am afraid, tbp disappeared, but he left a vivid community. Sadly we couldn't even salvage the old board. It was such a unique place, with an awesome blend of academics and hobbyists (and people slowly making the transition, like myself). The new board is similar, but tbp was a far better board operator. I wish I knew where he is now, he disappeared.

Can I somehow access the contents of the old website (ompf) ?

 

i used to admire things on that forum when i was at high school, but that was too advanced for me.

tbp's avatar was, i believe, an image of some chinese dictator, and he knew insane tricks

to squeeze the last few cycles/save memory and could easily point out other peoples' errors/inefficiencies in MMX/SSE code,

but i digress here.

There are a few scattered records available on the Wayback Machine, though most forum posts did not make it. I think that's all that's left publicly available, the Google caches have long expired. IIRC there have been efforts to try to recover as much as the site as possible, but not much at all was left... take a look for yourself:

http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.ompf.org

For some reason the board was only archived sporadically, it seems the forum software wasn't really compatible with the archival web crawler.. case in point towards the importance of reliable personal archives, I suppose.. Maybe ask around? Edited by Bacterius
