Title: Dhost.info closing (closed) down 11/15/2017
Post by: Uatu on November 18, 2017, 03:11:17 AM
Just in case others have not noticed yet - but Dhost.info (where many of our sites lie) has closed down! :'(

There is still time to save your stuff (via FTP), but the web part seems to already have died (I cannot access my site anymore).

(I feel a bit of responsibility here, since I found the site in the first place - but now is the time to find a new home for my (our) sites, I guess!).)

If anyone has any ideas, I would be quite interested to know! :-[

It may not be ideal; but, I'm willing to provide FTP details and space on my server. Similar to what you see here: http://manikus.reonis.com/ Let me know if you're interested in this as an alternative.

This is a very kind offer!
Is there any preset layout we would need to use, or could we just re-upload our homepages to your server? Are there any space limits (at Dhost.info, it was 100 MB I think)?

No space limits or preset layouts. For some that may be a disadvantage; but, you simply upload your files into a folder as appropriate versus using a template and populating that. If you send me a PM with what your subdomain should be, that's the bit before reonis.com in the example for manikus above, I'll set it up and PM you the credentials.

Ben, that's exceptionally flattering and it's appreciated. Everyone has their strengths and stuff like this is something I can do. :D

I've learned that I can no longer create subdomains for free. Hopefully a folder will work acceptably.

Thanks to Donnie Ewald, my homepage is up again at:

Thank you very much for your help! The subfolder solution is absolutely acceptable!

It would be great if Olivier could also update the Ultimate DC Design List... :D

(Which reminds me that I wanted to playtest more DC designs and also try a few more FRUA modules...  :-[ )

Wow - that is very kind of you Donnie - of course a folder name (uatu?) would be perfect!

You're welcome, Uatu. I've sent the credentials via PM.

I saw that there are still links around to Uatu's and my former homepage:
It would be great if the links could be updated.


*The link to my site is already updated here.  I guess Manikus did not update the link to Uatu's page since it is not yet published...

So...  I've finally uploaded my data to the new address in my signature (10,000 thanks to Donnie!).  (I blame my workload, extreme laziness, and strange sense of time.)

Not really sure what is new/old anymore, but some things that may be new:
- New experiments in the face changer.  Chrome now shows all image tags with no images set with a kind of broken image icon, though (curses!).
- Picture books - still same two, but now with German version for one of them (thanks Dinonykos!).

I did some testing, and it looks like the site seems to work fine, but if there are any nasty problems, I'm all ears!

Nice, it is great that your site is back again. I found several images I had not yet seen before, which are all nice. The ancient elf and the maiko for example (maybe I overlooked them earlier).

Great news. Now, I can look to seee what I have missed... :D
I love the picture books. :D

I have updated links to your site, Uatu, at all three places mentioned above. :D :D :D

It's great to see UATU's site back! I especially like the pages where the icons are grouped alphabetically by which source book they come from: MM, FF, or MMII.

I lost track of what was uploaded and what was not, so I just threw it all up :D  I have not actually drawn anything for months now though.. :(

The source book listings are for old-school purists only :D
