DhO Hacked and Upgrade

General

ATTENTION!: It appears that our server has been hacked through this version of Liferay, meaning it is no longer secure, and so expect instability as we deal with this and attempt to upgrade to Liferay 7, which we failed to be able to do last year the last time the team attempted it, but we have no choice at this point, so bear with us as we try again. Save any long posts in a text file before posting them. You can follow me on Twitter at @danielmingram for updates if the site is down. Apologies for any complexity this causes. We will work as fast as we can. We have backups of the database, so hopefully nothing will be lost. Thanks to all helping with this complex process.

I was checking in at alohadharma.com to re-read the excellent descriptions of the insight stages, but that entire site seems to have disappeared emoticon Anybody know what happened to it, and if it's possible to find its content elsewhere?

Check out https://atrahhdis.github.io/ where he has created an AlohaDharma e-book that has an excellent summary of the insight stages.

I saw that this morning as well.

From what I understand, the last post he made on the site was a month or two ago - he stated that he'd be changing the website from Aloha Dharma to something along the lines of 'Getting Real'. He didn't put a timeline on it, but this might be the transition.

I found this website during April 2019. I was about to go on a small holiday trip and I decided to collect all the posts that I was interested in and make a "quick 'n dirty" e-book for my own needs.

I created it very quickly, loaded on my kindle and started reading it and... WOW!

IMHO these texts by Ron Crouch are possibly the best introduction to the pragmatic dharma and this is the text I suggest to friends of mine that want to understand what I'm doing and why I'm doing it!

Since the initial e-book, a lot of versions have been uploaded and I believe that this version (1.19) is probably the last one:

https://github.com/ahtrahddis/alohadharma

I feel very happy I was able to "preserve" all this knowledge with this e-book and I wish Ron comes back with a new website, new texts, and why not, a book.

EDIT:

I just checked his youtube and unfortunately his videos are not accessible anymore.

By the way, I highly suggest you to start "archiving" youtube videos for personal use. This is what I have been doing for years now with all dharma videos I like, using youtube-dl.

It's so sad to see great content disappear.... I always used Ron's map as the cliff notes to introduce the Progress of Insight to new people. I'm so sad it is not easy to have access to such a thing anymore. 
Yes, Daniel has the best version but it is not a cliff notes version. 
Sigh,
