I can understand some of the sentiment, this place has become a mad-house more and more and having your actual name associated with anything here is probably not wise anymore. AND having your own art someplace where YOU know it's safe is wise: be wiser and make a second archive. HDs die. Had two portables I was using as archives AND a primary die in the last several months. One thing you don't want is to lose your entire body of work because I piece of machinery failed. I'll also note that I ended up paying $800 to get the data off of ONE of those HDs. You can purchase a LOT of extra portable HDs for that amount. If it's really important, have at least one backup archive.
Very sad to see the gallery gone though.
