Valuable Resource - Gone

"The Center for AeroSpace Information Technical Report Server (CASI TRS) was taken offline on September 22, 2003 and replaced by the NTRS: NASA Technical Reports Server."

This was the notice I found this morning when I tried to access the NASA Recon Select database. It was one I used often, was important, and is now gone without a trace and with little or no warning. The NASA Technical report Server, while useful, is not a replacement. In the past I'd search both, because the coverage was different. Now many valuable records have disappeared from public access.
