superinternetfriends.com dead (Net Yaroze interviews)

Post by gwald » March 17th, 2017, 3:33 pm

This site had good interview of Net Yaroze dev's.
The owner has let the domain expire and archive.org now doesn't have a archive :cry:

They did have it, and I read one a week ago, but now this week it's not there:
http://web.archive.org/web/201603160721 ... iends.com/

Because the domain squatter has a robot.txt :evil:

I asked the creator, Dan if he has a backup, but haven't heard from him, see comments.

Anyone have a back up of it?

I've searched search engine cache (Chinese/Russian) but didn't find anything.

I'm just after the text if anyone has it or can get it.
Cheers

Edit: emailed archive.org
Hello,
Hope all is well.

Last week I accessed this archive:
http://web.archive.org/web/201604160721 ... iends.com/

The domain expired and now is being squatted by a reseller, which is
very common.
But for some reason they put a robots.txt and now there's no trace of
the it online :(

The site contained interviews of hobbyist Sony PS1 game developers (Net Yaroze).
This is historically important and would like to retrieve the pages.

I imagine this is a major issue, especially as domains lapse and new
sites come online very frequently.
But, I don't see why the robot.txt has to be applied retrospectively.

Anyway, I hope someone can help regarding the interviews, I would
really like to preserve them.

Nope. Don't have a copy of it unfortunately. I spoke with Dan a while ago I remember to get in touch with the creator of "GRAVITATION". I was then speaking with him about the programming he did for it.

Well, I didn't get a reply, I occasionally check the archive.org site to see if by any chance it was back, and one day it was there :D
I thought I'd make a backup (via firefox, save as) just in case :?
The next day, it wasn't there, and it's still not there.. :shrug
Anyway, I've uploaded the interviews (as is from archive.org) on my new domain name, SCEE's old, Net Yaroze European site/newsgroup server domain name :lol:
I've also, added my old net yaroze page there, not sure if the other members will want to do the same and I'm not going to share ssh/ftp :roll: I just think it's funny :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
