No Intranets and no songs??

Post by Richard Hull » Sun Jan 19, 2020 5:35 am

I went to the home page and clicking on either of the URLs takes one to a nebulous Water Star project which will still not allow them to be accessed. These used to work here on the home page even after we came to Go Daddy Now they do not. Are the first three or four years now lost? I hope not.

Richard,

All links to both early works are here on the forum and all links are good. They are near the bottom of the page in their own sub forum. I am not sure about Paul’s other sites as I only tend to this one.

Be specific, Frank. Tell us exactly how. Go follow those links that you mention.

I tried and what I found got the site's version of a 404 error.

Here's what I did.

Top -- fusor.net page.
Umm. no such links near the bottom.

Where would they be?
Try 'Best of Fusor.net'

Strange page but scrolling down, in the right column I find (as you mentioned)...
"Early Fusor Fora"
with two links:
songs.com BBS (1998-2000)
Intranets(2000-2001)

Yeah, but, clicking on either of them gets an effective 404 (no such page)

Unless the working links you claim are well hidden, I'm inclined to agree with Richard's disappointment.

I am traveling but I just logged in from my phone and got good links. Here they are from a cleared cache browser from the links at the bottom of the forum page. One not even need to be signed in.


https://www.fusor.net/old-boards/intran ... index.html

https://www.fusor.net/old-boards/songs.com/index.html


Below my original links, it appears Paul has edited my post by adding his relevant data to external web pages. Those links do not affect the above ones. If there is an issue, I can investigate it more once I am back at a console.


I will archive the entire series when I get back home from this trip and make those forums downloadable to all that wish to keep them in their entirety.

Important news coming later today from this trip that I am currently involved with.

Sigh.

Not sure how you arrived at those working links, Frank. The top-level pages of fusor.net have different links in the only way I found (as described earlier).

Code: Select all

Frank's working links:
https://www.fusor.net/old-boards/intranets.com/index.html
https://www.fusor.net/old-boards/songs.com/index.html

----- My looking -----------------------------------------
On main fusor.net page...

"Best of Fusor.net" points to:
http://waterstarproject.com/category/bofn/

page links there:
http://waterstarproject.com/old-boards/intranets.com/index.html
http://waterstarproject.com/old-boards/songs.com/
Those two waterstarproject links don't work.
I went to waterstarproject.com and did not find any 'About' to figure out what exactly it might be.
Apparently it's links have gotten mashed into the current real fusor.net pages.

Frank and I are in California right now rummaging through the Farnsworth family archives that have been shuttled out here over the past couple of years. Our time here is very limited and this is NOT what we want to focus on during the hours we have left here today.

The old "songs.com" and "Intranets" content is still there. Frank has provided links that work. Use them. When I get home tomorrow I'll figure out and fix the links that don't work.

If you want to know what "The Waterstar Project" is, read "the manifesto."

http://waterstarproject.com/read-the-wa ... manifesto/

That's one of the reasons we're out here this weekend.

You will also see that the posts that populated the Wordpress portion of the old fusor.net site (when it was hosted by Media Temple) are now living under that waterstarproject.com domain; that's because we didn't think it was a good idea to have two databases (Wordpress and PHPBB) running under one domain, so we did not restore the Wordpress content to the new host when we moved fusor.net.

Clear as mud, maybe, but, again, not how we want to be spending our time today.

Thanks,

Access to the Songs and Intranets is in the exact same place on the forum that it has been for many months (or more) and it is working. I just checked it out on the hotel computer and all is accessible.

Here is the bottom of the page with the area highlighted in RED.

To navigate to it, just click on the the title like you would any other topic on the board. Once there, click on which one you want to access; either the songs or the intranets. That is the exact link that I have provided in my above message and it works.

NOTHING has changed with this even with the GD migration. I have no idea why this is an issue for all of you.
