Help me remember this website

I'm trying to remember a website, hoping MeFi can help me. Sorry, I know this is vague. It's just a list of documents gathered from different places -- similar concept to The Smoking Gun though I think the subject matter was different.

* I think I probably knew it from mentions on Slashdot years ago.
* It had a very simple text-based layout, no pictures. Almost looked like a terminal. Light text on dark background
* Each line is one document -- with a name and brief description

So did Arts and Letters Daily, for that matter, although it has always had that pinkish background color, so probably not what you are looking for.

It's been dead for over a decade, but was similar to what you describe, part of the Fucked Company operation.

JoeZydeco nailed it, it's cryptome!

Thank you for rescuing my brain!

Almost didn't say it because you confirmed the textfiles/jwz eyeburn color scheme, but I'm glad it worked out. Cryptome is a great site.
