Spectrum 2.0 links fail

Post by Juan F. Ramirez » Tue Oct 08, 2019 8:15 pm

I can't access to the reviews at Spectrum 2.0 neither from SC nor directly from the web itself (spectrum20.org) these days.

Does anyone have the same problem?

Yep I've noticed it too, and some days it reappears. I think it's quite a few IDs behind as well.

Does anybody know the reason? :cry:

It's a flaky server that needs a kick every now and again. Not my words ;-)

Excellent! Thanks Stefan and gasman.

How does all this work then? It's gasman's server, but still Phil Kendall's site? Who would we pester about getting it up to date with ZXDB?

I saw somewhere that it was Phil's site on Matt's server (http://spectrum20.org/about). Since Phil didn't respond to my previous tweet I included Matt in this one.

I say pester them both until they get their act together ;-)

It's been down for a while again. I think it needs some kind of Heath Robinson contraption that ends with a boot kicking the server every 6 hours or so :)

Maybe the server works with a crank handle!
