8238Re: [RedHotJazz] Anyone know why the main site is down?
- Dec 3, 2010Sorry for the tecchy discussion here, but Richard, just to save you and
anyone else a lot of disappointment :
you *can* download the whole site, but you'll only get the pages, not the
soundfiles which are stored in
a protected folder, and "called" by separate streaming files (all in the
These are not the songs themselves, but .ram files, so a backup of the site
on your computer won't work.
Unless, of course, you have enough time on your side to record thousands of
samples, convert, rename and reorganize them into your own folders, and
rewrite all links in each of the html pages. I am too busy/lazy to make an
estimation of the time it would take...
I already thought of these problems when Scott was considering moving his
site to France, I think it should either be kept as is (and no-one but Scott
has access to the whole content, as far as I know) or completely rewritten,
using a CMS which would indeed save a lot time, and allow more functions -
like new entries or minor corrections, for a limited number of contributors
with the relevant permissions.
Not that the purely informative part is not instructive enough in itself, I
saved it years ago.
But please don't all rush on HTTracks together, or we'll do know why the
server is getting slow! ;-))

First of all:
Please do NOT hit the Delete button :-)
Second, I was able to get to the site today (just now), so at least it
is not completely down...
But it is slow and seems a little unreliable right now...
This thread alarmed be to the degree that I am now attempting to
download the entire site just to have an archive should the worst
happen. So far I am not having too much luck (timeouts and other
errors), but I'll keep trying. This great collection must be preserved!
