Does anyone know what happened to CubeOwner.com? I haven't visited in
years, and decided today to check in on one of my old haunts only to
find it gone. It's actually hard to find much trace of it when
googling. The best I found were a couple of vague Reddit posts about
it.

Anyone know the history? Was it archived anywhere? The fora were an
absolute goldmine. It might well be the single most documented computer
ever made, and losing all that information would be a tragedy.

Good spot. I didn't think to check Archive.org.

I had a poke around, and sadly it looks like the sub-pages weren't
archived. I guess the Wayback Machine only crawls to a certain depth.
What a shame!
