What happened? Looking back at my emails, the
list was operating normally
until September 3. Then it just stopped. There were normal discussions
going on. There was no flood of spam. As far as I can tell, nothing occured
that would trigger a rage quit.
Is the software and documentation that was on the site at least archived
elsewhere? Has anybody downloaded it and can maybe upload to archive.org?
I downloaded some of the software and documentation from there a long
time ago and still have it, although I didn't actually scrape the
entire site. I can upload what I've got to archive.org
The disk image kit of NOS 2.8.7 with CYBIS has been mirrored at
<https://codex.sjzoppi.com/doku.php?id=utilities:start> and most of
the documentation for it is available from the Wayback Machine at
Have any SCOPE 3.1.6 or 3.3 deadstart images survived? If someone has
an old 7-track deadstart tape, I'll be happy to image it. NOS is too
new for me--I date from the time that it was KRONOS--and before that, MACE.
