8Warning: Not foundTheHTPC.net – Down for the count? No

Sad news – for the last few days TheHTPC.net has been showing a Server 500 error.  Now the owner (another Jon) has put up a message saying the site is broken and he may not be able to find time to fix it.  I for one am very much hoping to see TheHTPC.net back in the near future.  If that is not to be then I hope we will be able to source and provide a mirror of some of the outstanding resources that were previously available there.  RIP.

Update 20-Jan

TheHTPC.net is back online.  Outstanding!

Update 2

Unfortunately theHTPC is back offline, seemingly with no hope of a revival.

Update 3

Thanks to Jon below for the comment.  Its back again after all!  Great news.

I was not able to submit my application. I got some kind of “CAPTCHA” error

What application? Do you mean comment? Until you verify your e-mail address you are likely to get a captcha to solve before you can post a comment. answer it correctly and your comment will be submitted (as the one I’m replying to was)

Hi Stanislav, I believe I have fixed the issue. My form submission plugin changed while the site was down and rendered my old settings incompatible. Without your comment, I probably would never have found it 🙂

I had given up and thought it was all lost, but I did manage to salvage an automated db backup I had sent to my email periodically. There is nothing new there for a year, but there really wasn’t at the time it went down either.

Anyway, http://www.thehtpc.net is back 🙂

Agreed. There hadn’t been much new stuff there in the last couple of months, but some of the archived content was still really useful, and the loss of community is a big loss, it’s hard to build a community like that. I hope he manages to restore it
