HTLAL has been down for at least 2 hours. Once again this is happening at night.

BTW there's a wikia page about htlal outages. Feel free to edit the status when (if? :o) the site becomes available again.

This is about the third time it has been down in the past week or so,

Does anyone know if Mrwarper has made any recent backups of HTLAL?

@Rhian when was it unavailable for you? I've not seen any outage between November 1st and the current one. I didn't check deliberately though.

Honestly I'm not really concerned about the latest posts (I hope nobody keeps a log on old htlal without backing it up :?), but many wikia articles still link to threads on the old forum :|

HTLAL is a dead forum walking- has been for a long time now. Eventually, FX will tire of the expense of running what is basically our archive for us over there and HTLAL will end. It's probably a good idea to update those links and/or quote the information verbatim and credit HTLAL (if it comes back), or rewrite them entirely.

I must admit I have not been to HTLAL for ages, the idea kind of gave me the creeps :shock: , like walking back into a house you abandoned many years ago and you are uncertain what ghosts you may come across ;) . Today I decided to pay a visit just to see if I could still access, and it worked fine for me. The feeling of an abandoned house certainly came to me. I do see a few familiar names have posted a couple of times over the last month but there is hardly any activitiy at all. Personally I won't go back unless I really need to check some old thread for whatever reason - as regards my own log at HTLAL I already copied everything into a word doc when I decided to move here.

No need for anyone to maintain the archive. It's on the Internet Archive Wayback Machine, which has 279 Billion pages stored. That's good for me because I found this (A language learner's forum) from this link on the Wayback Machine:
https://web.archive.org/web/20161021224 ... efault.asp , the 21 Oct 2016 backup of the HTLAL forum.

Have we reached that point now? Because I can't access HTLAL since yesterday.
