Any old links from here, the Wiki, or even my slack.net page beginning with http://blargg.parodius.com/ should have heir beginning changed to http://slack.net/~ant/old/

Though at the moment slack.net seems to be down. I hope this is temporary.

I was wondering - just yesterday I was trying to reach some of your APU documentation and had to go to the Google cached version. 8-)

Now I just have to wait for slack.net to come back up so that these pages can get fixed.

Well, it appears that slack.net is probably down for good. It was very generous of the owner to give me that site without charge from around 1997 to about a week ago, over 15 years total. Now I'm left finding another (free) host. My site didn't use much bandwidth, to my knowledge, as the largest things I hosted were zips of my source code. Anyone have any offers? I'm concerned that if say nesdev.com offered me a subdomain, that it would be unfair to not offer others one as well. I'd like to avoid using a "free" provider, due to ads etc.

I have spare hosting capacity if you need a new web home. I use a paid service so no ads etc.

(edited: in case it wasn't clear, I wouldn't charge for the hosting, it would be free :) )

Thanks to everyone who offered me free web hosting. With WhoaMan's help I've restored my website as well as copies of all the older ones I've had. You can do a find-and-replace to fix any links to the old sites:

Code: Select all

      Old                       New
slack.net/~ant          blargg.8bitalley.com
www.slack.net/~ant      blargg.8bitalley.com
blargg.parodius.com     blargg.8bitalley.com/parodius
blargg.fileave.com      blargg.8bitalley.com/fileave
h1.ripway.com/blargg    blargg.8bitalley.com/ripway
For example, blargg.parodius.com/nes-tests/instr_test-v3.zip becomes blargg.8bitalley.com/parodius/nes-tests/instr_test-v3.zip

I believe that I've fixed all the old links on my site. I'll leave it to others to fix any on this board (any mass find-and-replace the admin can do?) and the Wiki.

Wiki fix can start here:
parodius | slack
(no ripway or fileave)

EDIT: Parodius and Slack are done on the wiki.

Oh great, slack.net is up again, after weeks of being totally dead. So I've got to decide how to handle this...

I'll keep all the NES/SNES code/test ROMs on the new 8bitalley.com site, since that's on the same host as nesdev.com, and not linked from my public site anyway. I'll keep my main site at slack.net, since so much stuff links to it. I'll put some links on it though that direct people to my mirror in case slack.net goes down again.

public site: slack.net
nes/snes source/test roms: 8bitalley.com
