Remember when Loompanics was your source for subversive anarchist materials? Yeah, it's been subverted. Loompanics.com (no links, it sucks) is now hawking "The Ultimate Disney World Savings Guide 2010" and "The Magic of Making Up" and similar tripe. We've lost the magic of badly edited bomb-making techniques likely to kill you if followed.

And the world is poorer for that loss.

Pre internet, I remember "anarchists cookbooks" on fidonet. They were entertaining to read. In the pre-everyone-in-the-world-is-online era, it was a joke for the lower end of the IQ/gene pool. There were instructions for making a "nuclear" bomb in a 55 gallon drum. These instructions were nearly guaranteed to remove you as a threat to others and/or identify you quickly to the authorities.

Nowdays. I think an "anarchists cookbook" refers to cooking meth in WalMart bathrooms.

Yeah, they've been gone for several years.

Yeah. I haven't followed the saga since they were going out of business back in 2006, but I suspect someone either bought the ashes or just camped on the domain name.
