Thains Book

Does anyone know what happened to the Thains Book website? It's one of my favorite Tolkien sites, I don't know how many people here use it, but I've been unable to access it for the past few weeks.

Kyranger,

I lost it too.

I got a message when I tried to access it that was removed by those who had sponsored it.

I loved it.  And wish I could find it again ... but my best google search led to nothing! (sigh)cry

What all did this website supply? And do you know what the name of this sponser was?

Huan,

It was a encyclopedia of all things Tolkien.  It was a tongue and cheek resource based on "Redbook" kept by the hobbits .  The Thain's Book was a reference of hobbit history and the world view in the Shire.


It is/was an excellent reference for things in The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and the Silmarillion.


Here is the last "address" I have for "The Thain's Book".

 I have been browsing the web to try and locate the website but to no avail.  A bit of information I did pick up from the web a day ago was that The Thain's Book(Tuckborough.net) is up for sale for just under $2000.  It looks like it was plagued with a lot of security problems, I know, because when I did try to access the website a message would come up that the site was dangerous and contained malware.  Like many other people, I am a big fan of the website and It was an excellent online reference library for all things Tolkien.

So perhaps Tolkien fans may come to the rescue of this wonderful website.

Hey guys,

I saw this thread and remembered how much I loved that site as well. I decided to search a little known resource I learned about a couple years back and I think you all will be as happy as I was. Check out the following link:

http://web.archive.org/web/20110628170117/http://tuckborough.net/

I'd love to copy all the content and start a new site with it but I don't know if there are legal issues with doing it. Anyway, I think all the content is there and the linking seems to work.
