What this is

New Totse is the continuation of a once great site, Totse was a collection of thousands of text files containing information on every topic imaginable, contributed from people all over the world, and dating back as early as 1989. After over 20 years of administrating The Temple of the Screaming Electron, raising it from a dial-up BBS on the West coast to a thriving community of over 30,000 members, Jeff Hunter simply was tired of doing it and moved on and shut the doors.

During the shutdown, people grabbed and archive (linked below) of the text files, and many of us flocked to either Zoklet or Totseans, neither of which stood the test of time, Zoklet shut down rather quickly, to be proceeded by Into Sanctuary, Red Fern, and now, while Totseans has remained online (as of February 2020), but under extremely strict administration and heavy censorship.

Our goal isn't to replace either of the current offshoots, but to draw in our own unique crowd the same way many of us found Totse: through simple web searches and a thirst for forbidden knowledge. We aim to be an ever growing archive of information, the same way Totse was, and continue the tradition of passing our experience down onto the younger generation, without the fears of judgement or censorship.
