Just to let everyone know, we have taken over hosting ourselves and everything is available as previously and with the same addresses.

Apologies for any inconvenience and hopefully we won't have any repetition of this problem.

Out of curiosity, and as someone who works in web hosting, what was the issue? Webmaster or a dev hijacked the hosting or domain name? Or maybe just incompetence?

Thanks for fixing it.

Now that it's back I've redownloaded and tested the oggenc with libvorbis 1.3.4 and I confirmed that they don't work with foobar2000. This is weird since they work perfectly on other programs like TAC.

Why?

Because foobar uses stdin and TAC doesn't. As explained here: http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....st&p=864424

Basically, the hosting was being provided on someone else's account, as it has been for years very generously, but reasons we have not been able to establish since we've been unable to contact him, he suddenly cancelled payment with no notice to us. Having finally been able to establish the situation, we've taken over payment on the account.

As a precaution, I have registered 'rarewares.org.uk' with a view to setting up a mirror, but I'm not rushing into that. wink.gif

So, sorry to inconvenience everyone and thanks for the support. smile.gif

I'll look at this over the next couple of days.

Thanks for this,

note:
you may want to nuke the Debian repos and everything on the pages, seems like something from 2005 and they probably take some disk space.
p.s. Also there are references in the page to old debian-multimedia.org, which is no longer there and someone took the domain for some other purposes, not to mention that they recommend dist-upgrade to sid and other stupidities (all things that were probably good 10 years ago).

Thanks for the suggestion. We had thought to do exactly that as the person who was providing those has clearly found other interests. wink.gif

No, not Roberto, Michael Gan was the guy mostly providing the Linux stuff.

Thank you for that.
Just a quick question - is there a way to save Roberto's ReallyRareWares as well ?

At least from web archive or so:

Ah, I thought it would be something like that, I worked with similar issues almost on a daily basis. At least it looks like you were able to get access to the hosting or at least had a backup of the site to establish it on a new host.

Let this be a lesson to people all over HA, if you maintain a web site make sure you have the 'keys' to the hosting account, or, at least a backup of the site content!
