Default [Old Pyramid] Suppressed Transmission missing?

So I'm digging through my old archives looking for old suppressed transmission articles, which is a pain because they're not conveniently titled, and I notice I'm having a hard time finding some of the older/more famous articles, like Ancient Astronaut Steel Cage Deathmatch or Clio's Nightmare or the one regarding Irem of the Pillars.

Is there something wrong with my archives (I still have the original zipped files, if I need to unzip them again and look if I must, but my unzipped versions look pretty accurate)? Do the rest of you have them? Were they pulled because they're in the ST books? If I buy those, plus my archives, will I have the complete set of ST?

A quick check for "nightmares" turns up a handful of "Clio's Nightmares" articles (for example, 1031.8.html in 2003 and 1028.3.html in 2005). If you don't have those files, then yes, there's something wrong with yours. If you do, then there's more likely something wrong with your search technology.

That said, it looks like the ST articles don't often have the words "Suppressed Transmission" or "Kenneth Hite" in them, so they do look like an utter pain to search for if you don't know exactly what you're looking for.

Yes they are, which is why I'm never sure if I'm actually missing files, or if I'm searching for the wrong titles/words. I did find The House of Clio's Nightmare. I still can't find some of the others, but that doesn't mean they're not there.

Hmmm, I'll have to keep looking.

The oldest suppressed transmission I can find in my archives is 0203 from 2000: The Suppressed Transmission Tarot IV: the Suit of Cups. I can't find any Suppressed Transmissions in 1999. Can anyone else confirm this?

I broke down and bought Suppressed Transmission, and I can confirm that there are no articles from the dates listed available in my archives. I don't know if something screwed up my download, or if there are just holes in the archive.

Shame.

Can you provide a sample phrase or two from an early ST to search for? Since they're not necessarily marked as ST or Hite articles, I'm not sure how I'd go about looking for them in the archive.

The First Transmission was called "Suppressed Transmission." It's from April 3rd, 1998, and it contains the words: "Richard Linklater’s", which is pretty unique.

June 18th of 1999, they published "Crypto *** Icon: The Voynich Manuscript", which, of course, contains the phrase "Voynich manuscript," which is pretty unique.

EDIT: These can both be found in the Suppressed Transmission compilations on E23, which is where I'm getting them. I cannot find them in my archive.

Yep, doesn't look like they're in the archive. Surprising. Good thing I'm not interested in ST.

Yup, they're in my unofficial scrape of Pyramid (taken slowly and politely before the official archive was made available), but not in the official one. How strange.

Do you mean to tell me that a column called Suppressed Transmission CANNOT be found in the official archive?

Why it's... tautological!
