While http://amiga.resource.cx is down..

I snapped a mirror of the site earlier and set up a script on my webserver, so whenever http://amiga.resource.cx is down, you can reach it from http://grandis.nu:81/AmigaResource/a...esource.cx/exp

As soon as it comes back up, that link stops working again and tells you to go to the original page instead, and vice versa (checks every 15 minutes).

Nobody seems to know who is running the page, so I have not heard back about it being OK or not.

Well done, it'd be a real shame to lose amiga.resource.cx!

I hope it'll get back soon

It's sad because amiga.resource.cx is one of the best sites for Amiga hardware together with BBoAH, but most of the time is down. Who is responsible, anyone knows?

I really don't have a specific answer to that question.

However, in the period leading up to his last activity on EAB, he was accepting contributions (manuals, photos, etc.) to the Amiga Hardware Database via email and they would find their way onto the database.

So, if he wasn't actually hosting the site, then he was at least a member of the team responsible for maintaining and updating it.

I guess that we must find the rest of the team? At least the guy that hosting this site, if he has problems to continue for whatever reason, we can continue or give a hand somehow.
