Quite possibly, many others here have done the same.
Obviously, posts here on TLF are readily accessible, without recourse to PDFs. But I have PDFs from the TMF days, and potentially more are available via The Wayback Machine.
Now, TMF posts are (AFAIR) TMF-copyright. But as Fool analyst Malcolm Wheatley (as some of you know), I'm happy to approach TMF top brass to ask for permission.
I was going to suggest the same thing. I don't find searching for things on TLF at all easy and haven't downloaded anything.
I have only just heard the news of the demise of Gengulphus, which made me very sad. Geng (as I used to call him) answered several of my queries and I (an elderly widow coming rather late to trying to manage equity investments, not to mention computers) never ceased to be amazed by the trouble he went to to explain everything. He must have spent an awful lot of time answering questions on these boards. I was surprised to learn how young he was; I had in my mind's eye a picture of a soberly dressed gentleman, even older than I am, and not a relative youngster looking dashing in an exotically patterned shirt, which makes his passing even more tragic. But hey, how wonderful to have achieved so much in his life, to have freely given so much of his time and shared his knowledge with so many others, often strangers, and to have merited so many tributes, and not just here, which must be a great comfort to his family, to whom I send my condolences.
ARM was one of my better investments and It's good to know that Geng played a large part in its success, though I was cross when it was sold to foreigners.
RIP Geng. A life well lived.
