After the server at msx2.com went down, Hans Otten decided to move his MSX Info pages to his private webspace on june 29. However, most datasheets and other downloadable files were still not available, as there was not enough storage space to host these files.

Today, Hans Otten announced most of these documents are back online as well. If you are looking for technical information on MSX computers, make sure you have a look on this website.

LOL, *why* would anyone want to DoS Hans Oranje?? No, as far as I know this happened because of a breakdown of the msx2.com server. As it was hosted privately, there are no plans to replace it (unless someone donates a PC ^_^).

{moderated}

Broken links were always a problem. Why it took this many weeks to get the files back online is beyond me. Even if FuNET is a 'tough site to upload to' (according to OmegaMSX the maintainer), it could still be done in a few days.

Furthermore, the funet archive is becoming more and more of a maze. The directory structure is totally fouled up. Nobody can find anything there anymore... I'd say it's in need of proper reorganisation.

For what I've heard, Iwein stopped with MSX and wanted to stop msx2.com anyway. He wants to actually use his internet connection again.

thaz just too sad man.

as for the funnet: IT REALLY IS PEANUTBUTTERSOUP man, chaos. But hell, I'm that kinda guy that like to have everything neat and clean in some sort of order, catagorize everything and have stashes of sub-dirs just to re-catalog the whole shit. Wink

The broken link thingy is just like that... stuff HTML up yours and use some database, I LOVE AUTOMATION.... oh, well. Anyway thanx Hans for your attempt, keep it up. Where with ya all along...

I fully agree with that.
