Woody's website (amican) is down

as reported originally here:

http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=25142


man, how is it there appear to be so many tossers intent on shutting down websites and restricting information about a 20 year old computer?

I agree that probably the OS3.9 ROM image should been removed from the website (that should then make the site 'legit' in the eyes of AmiKit), but what a wanker for not asking for the ROM to be removed in the first place?

thank Gord for that!

a possibly unpopular suggestion - but it'd sure be nice if there are archives of complete websites such as Amican and B2TR before they disappear entirely.

bung 'em on DVD I say (to the sysadmins of respective sites) and torrent them please! As Minuous points out in his arguments with AmiKit - if something isn't distributed then it is not preserved.

Having just one accessible copy sitting on one computer is not a good enough backup system.
