What happened to weasl.net?

Unread postby MisterDNA » Tue Apr 03, 2007 9:00 pm

I have been looking for anime wallpapers and have found that Google results point toward weasl.net, but it doesn't seem to be working anymore. Granted, the results I'm looking at are from 2005 or so, but how could such a popular site disappear?

Yeah, 2005 was when it fell off the net. Not sure why - was just there one day and gone the next. I have all the wallpapers archived though if you want them.

I'd really like a copy of the archive, actually.

You're like the curator of all things geek, nekonoko. Bravo!

Any chance you could (briefly) rehost the archive file you had posted? I meant to dl it and forgot about it (until it was removed... then I remembered...)

Sure, I put it back for now, drop a note here when you're finished. I had to remove it as some individual (from Japan no less!) felt it necessary to continuously download/redownload the archive (from the logs it looked like he was using some borked IE "download helper"). After six hours of completely choking my 1.5Mb upstream bandwidth I'd had enough. :x

Anyway, the Google crowds have found it so I can't keep it up for long periods anymore.

I have seen one of those photos in a china sourcing product listing.
It took me a moment to recognize it.

Tell you what - I'm going to go ahead and stick the file on my FTP where I can throttle the bandwidth. It'll take a while to download, but it'll keep my connection sane :)

Fried gold! grabbing this too while it is still around. I cant stand AP, 4chan or any of those other sites, so naturally it is hard to find anything decent. :)

I used to pull a lot of stuff off 4chan but it just got to be a hassle after a while. Nowadays I just look for a torrent with a month's worth of 4chan images and download that - let someone else do the grunt work ;)
