      • assassinations, organized crime, and scandals
      • Wall Street and transnational corporations

    What happened to this excellent software and is there a similar alternative? The domain name is for sale but I cannot imagine such a useful thing disappearing altogether.

    The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point is to change it.
    Karl Marx.

    It has been down for some time. I believe you can download an older version at internet archive [?] that works on windows...I'll check where I got mine...but it is an old edition, for sure...but still handy. Nothing has replaced it and I often need exactly that - Namebase. Daniel Brandt started and ran it. I once heard the story of what killed it.....but I forget now....was it Chip Berlet?

    Did Namebase also have a long series of book reviews available on the site? I was doing some research last year into interconnected deep politics volumes and can't remember the URL but I think Namebase might have been it. There was a long vertical page of book titles to click on and reviews of each.

    To my total surprise (sarcasm) Namrbase brings up a message at archive.org, this URL has been excluded from the wayback machine. Gee, who chose to exclude that one I wonder?

    Yes the book list still resides at namebase.net. And that is great even if not updated but it is not the visual software that I would really like. If you can get me a copy that would be fantastic. I will ever use a Windows computer if I have to Even an approximation of this software if such thing is available.

    And yeah, who would possibly want this kept off the Internet Archive? /sarcasm

    If you use Linux or Apple you can install Windows as a Virtual Machine [in that mode it can not spy on you] to run windows only programs.

    Yes. But that is a lot of fuffing around so I prefer to keep my Linux clean and just have a dedicated Windows computer available for these things. So if there is a Windows version of the software available I can definitely use it!

    Yes, there is an OLD version of it available - I'll try to locate where I found it....I had searched long and hard to find it.....
