Safe-CMS - Censorship is a thing of the past

Sadly @shane and @AndyAlban were abducted by aliens. Their exact whereabouts and the results of any probings remain unknown.


John, they are locked in my basement. I can’t believe you fell for the aliens thing.

PS I live on a boat. :roll_eyes:


But you live in a boat… oh wait, I fell for that too…


Aliens, boats… Hmm… H.P. Lovecraft, anybody?

Anyone willing to pick up this project?


I was browsing this one just a couple of days ago. It’s kinda curious and it makes you wonder what the hell was this about. One of the great unsolved mysteries of this thread. Hopefully the mystery ‘who is gonna finish this’ will be solved with a positive result.


Ok, can’t resist - This forum reminds me sometimes of that Eagles’ song Hotel California. LOL.

I see it as a Dyatlov Pass Incident of sorts. We all know why things froze – but why did they leave the tent?

Possibly relevant? Some things never go out of date.

I recently read of that incident because of another Dyatlov (deputy chief-engineer @Chernobyl). You too?

No, I became familiar with it through the horror game ‘Kholat’:

Needless to say, I briefly joined the ranks of the folks obsessed with the mystery. It was during a winter I spent in a pretty secluded environment in the mountains. Great thing to ponder before you go to sleep, while the wind makes your chimney squeak.

Then I realized the whole thing is a typical Ouroboros. Great mystery though. Just like the Safe-CMS. :alien::alien::ghost::male_detective:


It was very funny reading all the theories in this thread, I just remembered Maidsafe and thought I would see how it was doing.

I want to formally apologise for “ghosting” on this project. My brother was killed and I spent some time receiving intensive psychiatric care as a result. The truth is that I simply forgot about this when all was said and done.

I’ve had a lot of introspection over the past couple of years and my priorities have changed hugely: I’ve left IT entirely, I now work part time at a mental health care facility (though I do still contribute to a few open source projects) in an attempt to give back to the system which gave me so much.

Safenet has an unfortunate history of abandoned projects, people seem to have taken a lot of money and produced nothing of note. I never took money and only worked on my projects out of love for the distributed dreams Maidsafe offer us, and for a respect and furtherance of this community.

This is a final requiem for the Safe-CMS project, but I’m going to read up on the progress the team have made and see where I can fit in to that. I’m interested in working on new Safenet projects in the future, so watch this space I suppose.


I don’t feel an apology is needed after such a loss, but I am merely just one member of this forum.

My condolences for the loss of your brother.


Welcome back Shane. I’m very sorry to hear about your loss and the impact it has had.

It is good to know what happened and hope that you are ok. I also hope you will find your way back to helping with the project because you have such a talent. A lot has happened in two years here too, so catch up and let us know what you make of it.

All the best. :slightly_smiling_face:


Just to add my condolences, Shane and hope that you can find the time and motivation to work again with SAFE.
Thanks for clearing up the big mystery.


Hey Shane, very very sorry for your loss. Wish you the best in your quest of helping others.


Shane, Thank you for letting us know. Please accept all our condolences and your health is way more important than this project or us.

Look after yourself and glad to hear you will visit us from time to time.


My condolences for the loss of your brother.

You are very welcome here! Respect!


I’m glad us going berserk with explanations for your hiatus cheered you up a little. That’s the least we can do. Well, in my case, that’s pretty much all I can do. Welcome back and take care (of yourself and people dependent on you first).
