Along with http://www.geocities.com/solvingchess/ and other chess resources. Make the local copy while it's still up!

Yeah, crappy capitalists!

I downloaded Bill Wall's website.

Andrew Buchanan saved his (anselan) to http://anselan.com/ - luckily I caught him on this two days ago.


PS as of 19:45 local (and forum) time: Now it is a 503 error. I guess they delete it now. Only was able to download a part of the website. Sent a mail to the webmaster, hopefully he'll send me his website.

Best,

Yahoo this time did a crime that should make everyone leave them. They destroy cultural goods and feel good about it. AOL and Yahoo are evil and we should hope they will suffer a great economical catastrophe that wipes out their companys.

As of 23:40, it works again. I hope I can download everything this time.
Bah, was clear - as I write, it's again 503. Their bandwidth is too low.

-----

Ok, as of 2:27 AM on September 27 (!) I downloaded everything. I uploaded it to my website. I don't care if I infringe copyright by that (in fact, I know I do). I think Mr. Siran will be fine with this - if not, he can write to me and I take it down.

Backup: (removed)

PS: Backup is removed now since Mr. Siran has saved his website to another location:
http://www.problemchess.com/solvingchess/

Just FYI, it was a free service, the criminals told all
members months before they were closing, and even any
poor visitor should have gotten the word by now. How many
times I had to move my homepages around already? This is just
another instance. Such is life on the Net.
