www.amigapower.com no more

For reasons that are now obvious my website www.amigapower.com now has no content.

As I do not wish to violate the rules laid down by the moderator of this board I have posted my feelings on the site's front page.

I am no longer a regular visitor to the EAB but I will check this thread regularly to answer any questions or suggestions that other members of our community may have.


I am only interested in getting the site back up and running as it was.


Thanks

OK.

Just to update: hosting space and bandwith has been found and I'm currently repopulating the gallery. Some content has been lost but it wasn't as bad as first feared. The site should be back up next week, I'll post here when it has.

It's gone again. After reading the thread I was expecting to see a Amiga website at the end of the link.

What happened then?

No idea but it doesn't really matter any more; check the Amiga Magazine Rack.

The owner let their domain name registration lapse. They opened it with a 3rd party and because it had a reasonable amount of traffic the company they leased the name from kept it open as an advert.

Just clicked on the link and AVG found a virus exploit. Is this some sort of joke or what?

there must be a link in somebody's cache to the real servers (to shortcut the domain name)....
