Question Anyone able to access FileLibrary.com?

This is a site that served as a haven to me in years gone by when it came to finding obscure DOS gaming stuff that was hard or (near) impossible to get anywhere else.

For a while (a year or two ago to be precise) it seemed to be down and out for the count forever, but then I notice Google Cache has somehow been able to capture pages from it as recently as last month and even last week.

Downorisitjustme.com reports it to be down, but that still doesn't explain how a caching service can get on there and yet a lowly common user such as myself can't.


Is it based on region? Has anyone in the U.S. been able to access it lately?


(Since my purpose with the site is to get an old game or two, this can fit right into this section, right? )

And some extra information from DomainTools in capture form, to save you from having to go through that tedious "register-a-fake-account-then-take-advantage-of-a-free-trial" gubbins...


(Little note: on the main description page the thumbnails bit had 2010-03-27 as its latest date but as you can see it's not an available date in the actual selection. Mindfuck or what?)

Just e-mailed this Brian guy again (didn't hear anything the first time), so I'm really hoping he still checks that address. Why must this mystery torture me so much?
