Default Twinslan onan site down right now

Here's what Doug Reed said.
Yup, I can't connect either. Something odd with the server. I'll see
if our server guy can figure it out....
Doug

DNS still resolves correctly, Traceroute gets to augsburg-college then dies. Site is probably down for maintenance during the holiday weekend.

Twinslan is a great resource. A big Thank You to Doug for his effort in setting this up. I would hate to lose it.

It would be a good idea for some of the regulars here to mirror the site on their computer in case anything happens. I did this in in Linux using the wget command. There is no native ability in Windows to do this, but I believe there is a wget program available.

Any idea how big that site is?

I mean - how much storage space does it take up?

The last backup I made, months ago, was about 4.4Gb, including the "OEM engine manuals" and "other gensets" folders. I don't believe much has changed since then. I should get in the habit of mirroring once a month, but you know how that goes... The wget command, if correctly used, will not download any currently existing files, so it's not like I am using a lot of bandwidth every time I mirror it.

Maybe we can pass around a flash drive to members who can't mirror the site.

Definitely need to do a regular back up so we don't lose all of that valuable Onan Info.

twinslan.net is an alias to a sub-domain, of which the top-level is working.. NAT/routing or server issue, probably temporary (?).

I own a domain and website but I only have 10Gb of space right now. I can host a mirror if someone has a copy.

I have copied what interested me but I would figure somebody on here would know why the site was down first.
