Why are fat gas bags and friends trying to ruin this thread, the one that has had the most hits in the history of MilkyWay? Why level such abuse at the author of this thread? Why does anyone have to do maintenance on a web site? Why do problems sometimes happen with a site which take it down for a while? Why have some only got one brain cell? For Christs sakes add your own download resources and keep them up to date and I'll be sure to call you a snotty runt if it goes down.

FFS Only said it had gone down and was showing an ad for non-slip floors.... :-O

I know what big fat gas with a big fat dummy in his gob says, and I know what he has said in posts hidden by moderators.

I can't get my zslip site to work. For those who have taken the opportunity to lay some crap on me and accusing me of purposly screwing up my site for crap reasons they have given given - sod you. I do not have to operate my sites in 'your' way with links in my signature according to 'your' requirements. I will take down my sites for maintenance when I feel necessary and change my signature links when I wish - not when some control freaks here wish it, nor will I ask your permission first.

For those who have offered support I thank you - I have this in place for you as a temporary measure until I can find out why zslip currently does nothing but offer godaddy adverts.

Now if I can get all the apps, I can host them on my server.

A bit of redundancy is not a bad idea. Why not have them hosted in more than once place?

Funny that I thought of that right at the start, and an educated teached has only just thought of it now.

I too believe the service Ice has provided with his site for organising all the different apps has been most beneficial. I just hope he continues on with it.

Please excuse me if I'm not optimistic though. He has done this sort of thing before. Time will tell and I will gladly alter my attitude if he does continue on with it, but I'm not holding my breath.

Done this sort of thing before? Drivel, drivel drivel from a snotty The Gas Giant control freak who advocated scripts that brought down the servers, despite being warned the scripts would do so.

Thanks a bunch from me and possibly everyone who can't get work now.

I am setting up a new domain for zslip.com which should come on line within the next 24 to 48 hours.

I will not be setting up a "UK mirror" since others are setting up alternate download resources and I have no wish to duplicate my efforts unecessarilly. It will just be zslip.com and no other site.

In the mean time I have this temporary resource in place;

Please note a 'thank you' from me as well, Ice. Many of us could host the apps for public download, for free, as a favour to all, but you actually did it.

Ice, I can provide you with north-european mirror if you like. Meaning you can have several links on zslip.com

BTW, I am wondering why milkyway is not hosting these gpu apps the same way they host cpu apps? Some juristical reasons? (Sorry if this was already spoken about, did not read the entire thread)

Yes, thank you Ice for hosting the apps.

I am also wandering why milkyway is not hosting these gpu apps?

Thanks PoorBoy. Someone was asking me about my avatar recently and I was telling them that it is graffiti photographed on a wall in Chile. The artist titled it "Poor Boy" ;)

Thanks Brickhead. But it wasn't just about hosting the apps where people could more easily find them. It was also about getting Travis/Dave to acknowledge that they could be used (at least not saying they produced "bad results" and could not be used) so people could feel more relaxed about using them. I always made sure the authors posted a link to their apps here in MilkyWay first and said it was OK to use them before putting them, or any updates, on zslip.

That is why there is little in the way of instructions/narrative on zslip - instead links to here in MilkyWay, so it is all up to what is said in MilkyWay and not on my site.

Thnks for the offer pjsalmin. However using two sites means double the code maintenance and administration of upload files on each site. If someone else is offering to put it on their server, as they have done today, then that saves me a lot of work. I will just be maintaining the one zslip.com site from now on.

@ICE

Just in the event no one has said thank you also... Thank YOU. For the web connection. Like you, I too have many web sites that are mine. And if I too wanted to take it off line for a while then the rest will just have to wait.

BTW Show me the pictures I am Jealous that you got to go on VAC....

DD,

Thanks Dan! You have PM ;)

... maybe ICE taking the site down for a while is doing a favour to anyone who might have downloaded it now and find it not working in a few days (whether that was part of the intent or not...)? Sometimes newbies don't check all posts to see what status the project has...

If this post upset anyone, then I am sorry that you are so sensitive :)

Thanks Debs, that might have been a good reason. The truth is that I got careless with over 50 domains now, and goodness knows how many PCs doing what with which. Careless because I managed to upload the wrong files to the wrong host and screwed up the www zslip files.

Unlucky because it was Easter and I had to go to Richmond, London to see Noël Coward's "Brief Encounter", so couldn't get to it straight away to fix. After clearing out both mirrors and re-uploading the file forwarding just wouldn't work for both sites.

I have now set up a dedicated host for zslip.com, which has now gone live, but will take a little while before the WWW is updated to know about it.

I will sow a few seeds today in my greenhouse before I populate zslip.com with code, and it'll be ready soon enough.

Touchy little fella aren't you.

Honestly. Your site was a great central location to find all valid apps. I used it on more than one occasion. Do you know what happened to your site?

Looking at a publicly available search tool whois shows that at least you were paid up until November 09.

Just a warning ICE. If you have a dedicated server in the UK, please check the rules of hosting. I myself ran into an issue with a dedicated host server allowing the download of 'files' which was against the Terms of Service, even though it was open source java code I wrote. Being the owner seemed to not give me any rights to host it lol.

Just thought you may want to check the small print in case they sudden pull it without reason as happened to my confusion when they did it to me.

And again I add +1 to thanks for hosting.
