Cluttermagnet Posted January 30, 2022 Share Posted January 30, 2022 (edited) Hi, All This may or may not belong in the Linux forum. Moderators, please feel free to move it if it's inappropriate here. I recently saw one little 'oops' on my personal website and investigated. Still not clear why this happened, but the site is largely intact, so far- it's just one missing graphic and bunches of other graphics are still there and loading correctly. So I thought to use the Wayback Machine to try to fetch a copy of the graphic, only to be confronted by being told in effect that there are no records of my site (my wording here). I tried all sorts of little permutations in the url but nada. BTW I have all sorts of satellite pages and have not yet tried any other than my main landing page on the Wayback. I'll do that. Has anyone here seen news of any changes overall in how that site is supposedly archiving the net? My page has been up continuously since 1999. It's there, I can access it and other related site pages. What is going on? Could my website ISP have been blacklisted for harboring too much bad stuff? I have run into that on occasion. (Will supply particulars via PM if anyone wants more details, just trying to maintain a shred, at least, of anonymity here). Thanks, Clutter P.S It is a current topic that the Wayback Machine has been under revision with all sorts of stuff being redacted due to the current heavily political climate world wide. I have personally seen undeniable evidence of this happening to controversial info, formerly on line, getting scrubbed. BUT there just is not any controversial material on my personal site, and never has been. It is just a technical site for electronics hobbyists, and more hobby level than academic level stuff. P.P.S. This is a case of a single graphic on my site going missing. And I was having trouble as I played with their online editor substituting another graphic as a test. The ISP wraps some of their carp around my own html code- so they may have been fiddling recently. Looks like I am going to have to struggle a little to relearn their online webpage software interface. I think there must be some subtle changes somewhere.
