I’m not to happy with my solution, but it’ll suffice for now.
So every day, I have cron fetch me a new password fromÂ makeagoodpassword.com, Â update some httpassword entry, and use PHP for a simple redirect.
So let’s say I wan to get neko for the i386, the link wasÂ http://vpsland.superglobalmegacorp.com/install/WindowsNT4.0-i386/games/neko98-i386.7zÂ Now when you click on the link you get a 404 looking page that has a link to the new directory structure, and includes the username & password (I’m not currently evil enough to generate a random user, but I may have to do that in the future…).
So the new path lives in the /old directory making the new location of neko98Â http://vpsland.superglobalmegacorp.com/old/install/WindowsNT4.0-i386/games/neko98-i386.7z
So use the username/password combo on the page, and you’ll be good to go.
Sorry about all this.
It’s sad to see that you have to go through all this hassle, but I’m glad you took the effort. Your site has been a regular stop for me for quite some time now. I’d miss something if it were gone. Thanks!
Yeah I’ve survived a week+ outage on blogger, countless hosting issues, and now this insanity. That reminds me, I need to check that my rsync is working… !
The worst part is that I miss having a dedicated server, it was incredibly handy.
The stereo version of Opus Number 1 is umm… missing.
Luckily the file is *STILL* up on NPR. So I just quickly re-downloaded it.
All is well now.
Well… thanks for doing this!
