OpenBSD Journal was founded in 2000 and operated until 02004-04-01-0000April 1, 2004 at deadly.org. On 02004-04-01-0000April 1, 2004 the editors James Phillips and Jose Nazario announced that the site ceased its operation. Daniel Hartmeier backed up the contents of the journal in order to preserve them. Further investigation to the articles' structure lead to creation of CGI-based engine that would enable access to the deadly.org's content on a backup server. Consequently the functionality of adding new articles was implemented and the previous editors allowed to re-publish articles. So, the OpenBSD Journal was reborn under the current address on 02004-04-09-0000April 9, 2004.
