Aminet down... (apr 2019)

Aminet is down again - thanks (I suspect) in part to the recent mysql update - is there anyone here who has a line to a/the maintainer(s) that can fix it?

From memory, doesn't Korodny have something to do with Aminet?

Try sending him a PM or e-mail

Thanks, I did manage to find that mirror due to DDG caching a summary of the mirrors page for aminet.

Granted it doesn't have the shiny search page. That's how I managed to find MMULib and the few things I needed though!

When Aminet is down you can always get stuff from the FTP

If it's so few space, was it already discussed (RCK, Turan, other ?) for EAB (a small place on the serveur) to be an Aminet mirror ?

I have a full local mirror of Aminet - the initial sync took a bit of time, but update syncs take a few seconds.

The mirror is 54GB (56,796,859,225 bytes) and consists of 166,264 files.

Remember when Aminet was the largest software archive on the internet? It held that status into the late 90's.
