Techpubs (.jurassic.nl) down for maintenance

Unread postby jan-jaap » Mon Feb 27, 2017 12:03 pm

I need to do some maintenance to the server which hosts this site (among others) so it will be unavailable for a bit.

Back online :)

In an unrelated event the public IP address changed, it may take a couple of hours before DNS servers worldwide return the new address.

Yep, kudos to J-J!

Manuals on the original TechPubs site used to be available in one or more of these three formats:
* browsable HTML
* downloadable HTML .tar.gz archive
* PDF

The scripts I used to generate the index pages somehow missed the manuals only available as a PDF. We're talking about some 800+ manuals here :oops:

This has been fixed. I also added a picture of my actual dead-tree version of TechPubs, and performed some minor HTML and CSS tweaks. :)

Hope it works, if not let me know.

Meanwhile, I mirrored Techpubs archives in HTML format at my mirror: https://retrogeeks.org/sgi_bookshelves/index.html. Enjoy!

Thanks,
