Unhappy World Of Classics Closed

I went to http://www.marksplace.f9.co.uk/ and saw this :eek

Please note that I have decided to close the World of Classics for now. This is due to many reasons, mainly lack of time due to work and everything else. I may re-open the site, who knows, but for now it will remain closed.

AmigaMos is gone too??!!! :eek Did I miss something like an old thread before???

Anyhoo, I last visited WOS not very long ago. It hadn't been updated for a long while, and none of the download links worked anymore anyway.

AMIGAMos for sale

I liked the layout of WoC, but it was always painfully slow to browse (at least from here in the US). Hey, ya win some, ya lose some. The average site these days lasts only the duration of a domain name's registration. People create sites whilst they are all fired up about a given topic, but after a year or two, they have lost all interest in maintaining it. Life takes over and all of that jazz. More the norm than the exception, so it's not like its any kind of indicator of waning interest or any of that sorta thing. In that time, new Amiga sites have appeared, as well. The only constant is change...

Mark at W.O.C has been struggling for about 9 months to find the time for his site and the Amiga Emu Scene.

But with work and a few other things has found out that he has not got the time

I speak to Mark often and he has said that if there was ANYTHING Amiga wise on his site that interested you then he will be transferring most of what is on W.O.C to Amiga Emulation for Beginners

But this IS sad Sad news as W.O.C was a GREAT site, it will be missed

What about www.uaefiles.cjb.net ?? Is that closed? because when I come to the site it is saying " Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]General error Unable to open registry key 'Temporary (volatile) Jet DSN for process 0xb34 Thread 0x750 DBC 0x309d4f4 Jet'.

/uaefiles/_banner.inc, line 7"

What does that mean?
