On Amiga-news.de there is a statement of one of the back2roots team members. He said that they suffered from lack of administrator and some overwriting of files. Administrator (Hippie2000) came back, the team was reunited and they are working hard to make the site fully functional. Soon there will be also some new updates.

Thank you, Mailman. As you already noticed we're back. Read an official statement over at amiga-news.de in german language. The english translation should come online tomorrow or on Tuesday at their english pages.

Yesssss! This was one site I had constantly visited some years back before I knew about WinUAE. When I had, BTTR went down not long after.

Looking forward to BTTR being fully operational again!

Fantastic news! I loved this site and can now love it again.

It is the Amiga version of World of Spectrum!

It was good to see a site getting permission for it's content and keeping everything above board - a trailblazer of a site.

Welcome home, guys.

Very pleased to hear that it's back. I was actually lamenting its loss only a couple of days ago. It's a stunning resource.

Great news.


Back2roots was one of the first internet pages that I visit. It brings me back a lot of good memories.
Now a lot more people will enjoy it.
