Anyone know what's wrong?

It's been years since I went there.  At one time it was my go-to site for Atari history.

Some of their older, static pages are still online. Went to Archive.org. Copied AtariHQ's main menu into a word document. Using that to get the URLs to their hosted sites, which should still be online.

http:/www.ataribook.com/ - An up-to-date book on Atari History
http:/www.atarihq.com/pal-division/ - "The Ancient Atari PAL Division" European 2600?
http:/www.atarihq.com/danb/ - Technical information on old computer, arcade, and game systems.
http:/www.atarihq.com/jeo/ - Jaguar Info
http:/www.atarihq.com/rgvc/ - "the official IRC (Internet Relay Chat) channel of the rec.games.video.classic newsgroup"
http:/www.atarihq.com/vectrex/ - Spike's Vectrex Page
http:/www.atarihq.com/tsr/ - TSR's NES Archive

I know I've missed a few; using Google's "site:" operator may bring up some of the pages I missed.

Isn't that Marty's site?  I'll mention it to him.
