Many of the TAP links on this site appear to be out-of-date or broken but there was always Tapworld as a back-up.

The Tapworld site is currently showing a banner message "This site will be closed in the near future. Contact us if you want to get domain under your administration and perhaps start to host and administrate tapword.net yourself!

It may be advisable if you haven't got a local copy of your favourite TAP on your computer to do it now before the links disappear.

Might be an idea to offer to host it on this site, or at any rate to get all the links on one place.

The links alone may not be helpful. Over the years the original authors of TAPs etc. have lost interest in Toppys and/or have moved on to other equipment and many web sites containing the TAPs have died. Tapworld has attempted to rescue copies and hosted them themselves. If the Tapworld site dies then the links to those TAPs also die.

A few days I left a message on the site's feedback form offering to take over, have not received a reply.

It would be nice if someone would volunteer to update much of the information on tap(s). Wink
Having recently been trawling through the tap section of this site, I found a lot of it to be superseded, out of date, no longer applicable and so forth. Some of the links are dead too (e.g Geocities). In all but a few important cases, tap development has virtually ceased and now is perhaps a good time for a tidy up.

One possible interim action might be for someone to just suck all the data off using the HTTrack program (freeware) as mentioned on http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-web-site-ripper.htm

I've no idea what the copyright implications are!.
Also not sure what happens if the site links to external pages!

Anyway, if someone extracted the data, it would then be available should tapworld cease to exist (I can't do it, have no spare room on my disk).

Geoff

I've already done a "wget -r", I think I got most of it.
I could host it myself, though I don't know about the domain name.

The site is hosted in Joomla (pages are in a database). My website is static only, so I would have to convert it to flat form. What I really need is a dump of the DB.

archive.org is a good place to find dead websites.

I never got a reply to my offer of hosting the site.

It's not on archive.org either - the robots.txt prevented it.

Hi All,
Tapworld.net lives on.
Well it will do.
I now have the keys to the domain name and a copy of the site database. Just organising a copy of all the files from the previous admin.

Once i get a copy of the files i will get the site up and running as quickly as possible.

Cheers all

Matt

Did anything ever come of this? The evil_hitman only made one post and his website is still in the 'coming soon' state. Are the taps located elsewhere now?

Sorry guys, life got in the way and this had to be made a low priority.
I'll see what I can do about at least getting the files available if not the full site.

Cheers

Thanks for taking ownership of this - it's much appreciated Smile

If you want a quick and dirty way of sharing the files, you could put them into a folder on your computer in something like Dropbox, Skydrive or Google drive. You could then share the folder read-only so that everyone could access them.

Or you could create an account on one of those services, upload the files to the website and share the folder online without linking it to your computer. That way no one would need to access your computer at all.

Just a thought...
