  1. Thank you! So interesting to see that the 2600 rabbit hole is just as deep as ever, lol. ❤️
  2. I just got an older atari flashback that has this installed and went looking for a pdf of the printed manual because I thought it was just another game I never could buy back in the 2600 heydays--HOLY COW THIS IS A FUN GAME THAT BRINGS IT ALL BACK 100%!! Seriously, this game is the type of fun that made the 2600 a joy to own back in its heyday. I could only imagine what type of endless fun we would have had if this game existed back then. So glad it exists! Anyways, I was just wondering what all the different 'games' were because I was looking for a 1 player mode with just a single square as that cheating computer always knows where the next square will be. (Yes, the computer always cheats--it's always been that way in every computer game ever made--I swear! :D That's why the player will lose, lol). Anyways, thank you for the fun. :) I hope you got paid licensing fees for your work because it is very, very good work. :)
  3. Scratch that as I only have a subset of what is in the OP first http link, and that link is still active so all these are still online afaik (I didn't try to load one.)
  4. I found about 31 of the scans on one of my servers. I will see what else I can come up with for this. I think I have an idea on how to get everything the OP originally scanned back online...stay tuned...
  5. It has been several years since I've visited this thread. I used to host the 3 http mirrors of the original ftp archive which I manually updated when I had time. I'm actually searching my servers right now for these as I still have the computers but moved hence breaking the links. If I find them, I will see if I have a way of putting them back online.
  6. Hi everyone, I haven't looked at the thread in several months now as I actually got back to working on my web site. And it seems my links have stopped working long before I came back here. And with that, I have some bad news--I can no longer host the copies I have as I need the disk space. I had no idea I'd generate this much data this year, so something has to give. I still have a copy on one of my archive drives, so I still have some of the issues if something happens to the project, but I hope that the project continues as it brings back a bygone era of computing that was very exciting. I only saw a glimpse of it when I went to a c64 user group meeting back in the 80s with my dad, but it had an excitement that I've never found anywhere else. I'll still try to check in on this thread to see the progress, and it's interesting to see that the new owners of Byte want this project done too.
  7. Well, I spoke too soon. Hopefully whatever changes they're working on are done. All my addresses changed. New urls: http://69.73.38.248/events/byte/index.html http://24.214.130.70/events/byte/index.html http://69.73.59.122/events/byte/index.html Sorry again for any hiccups.
  8. Knology came by and fixed my modem issue. My IP addresses stayed the same and shouldn't change anymore. These are the correct addresses for my mirrors (same as before): http://24.96.150.90/events/byte/index.html http://24.96.150.75/events/byte/index.html http://76.73.219.7/events/byte/index.html Sorry for any hiccups.
  9. Oh, you have dynamic ip addresses? I'd rather not have to keep editing each time they change, so may I suggest perhaps setting up some dyndns names for your machines, as we can use them ? They are dynamic, but they very rarely change (only every few years when the ISP is changing something on their back-end). That one cable modem hasn't properly synced in days now, so I'm going to have to have a technician come out and look at it, but the others are working perfectly and their addresses are the same as they have been for years.
  10. Looks like my ISP is doing some work on their end. I've been having problems with one of the cable modems keeping sync for the last two weeks, and there's more IP address changes. These are the correct addresses for my mirrors right now: http://24.96.150.90/events/byte/index.html http://24.96.150.75/events/byte/index.html http://76.73.219.7/events/byte/index.html I'll post updates here as I see the addresses change.
  11. crikey! If you take that to recycling you can free up some space for a nice Atari computer But then three mirrors would be gone. Besides, the two Atari 2600s have their own room along with all the other vintage computer stuff.
  12. I wasn't concerned about speed, but replacement if the shipment got damaged. UPS is very good on payment for damaged shipments as well as a refund of the shipping costs if it's not on time, even on their slowest (cheapest) shipment methods.
  13. you cant control directory listings on a per directory basis? Sounds like you need an upgrade. I'd love to see one for a 486dx-33.
  14. Have updated the mirror redirector. Thank you! One question about the mirror redirector. Does it simply redirect to the actual files or to the index files? I have to manually build the index files and that keeps me from rapidly add new releases even though the files are there. If your redirector points directly to the files, then that solves my problem of updating the index files. it redirects to the root of your mirror. what index files are you having to update? if you mean the directory listing, then just let your webserver generate it perhaps. Thank you for the explanation. I have a very old web server that no one would believe is acting as the server and turning off directory listings turns off the automatic indexes (which I need for privacy for the other things served by this server). Oh well, no biggie.
