With Merijn's permission I have brought the CWS chronicles back online:

http://www.pieter-ar...chronicles.html

There are a lot of dead links (most of them to the former forums of SWI) which I will try and replace when I can find the time.
But I thought it would be nice to have the chronicles back after Trend removed them.

They are already on line, Pieter. http://www.merijn.org/articles.php
I am managing the DNS for Merijn's site - which is http://www.merijn.org and is on our dedicated server. (We're not charging Merijn for it).
I fixed a couple of bad Merijn links in http://www.spywareinfo.com - including link to his donation page. :)

I think I need some help finding it there cnm :blush:

The link to The CoolWebSearch Chronicles on Merijn.org points to cwshredder.net, which is dead.

Obviously if the article is online on Merijn's site there is no need for my copy.

The link to The CoolWebSearch Chronicles on Merijn.org points to cwshredder.net, which is dead.

Same for me, the internally linked articles still work, but that one is externally linked to

http://cwshredder.ne...chronicles.html

which seems dead, as does http://cwshredder.net itself. :(

I'm sorry, I didn't look deep enough. The articles.php did send you to Intermute (cwshredder.net) broken link. :

<span class="red">Hosted at InterMute</span><br/>
<a href="http://cwshredder.net/cwshredder/cwschronicles.html">
Read this article</a>

I have changed the pointer in that file:

<span class="red">Recreated by Metallica, 2008</span><br/>
<a href="http://www.pieter-arntz.info/cwschronicles.html">
Read this article</a>

Working nicely - http://www.merijn.org/articles.php
Thanks a lot, Metallica. :) Let me know if you want it to say something different.


P.S. I can't seem to figure out how to correct this line in http://www.merijn.org: "Can't reach this page from a infected computer? Try using this address: [url="http://216.180.233.162/~merijn/""]http://216.180.233.162/~merijn/"[/url]

Changing that to http://75.127.110.25/merijn.org makes a bad link, as do other variants such as http://75.127.110.25/merijn/merijn.org and http://75.127.110.25/merijn/.

Thanks Pieter and cnm for that. Those are all good reads for remembering the history of one of the worst groups of garbage to have rummaged the internet...

Hi cnm,

I think I know why it doesn't work, but I don't know the solution.
There are more then one domains at that server/IP (3 I think)
So it's impossible to figure out which one to replace the IP with.

@Galadriel,

It sure brought back memories. I really have to blame this subforum for sending me down memory lane. (And your return helped :blush2: )
I'm sure I'll enjoy trying to find suitable links for those infections to replace the broken ones, so I'm going to do that when I have plenty of time. Because I'm bound to get sidetracked a thousand times. :)

Regards,

Pieter

@ Pieter, I've been in memory lane for 4 years... and even more so in the last year, so... welcome to the club! lol

OT question for cnm:

Has Merijn contacted you about uploading the latest version of BFU?
1.12 is out.

Great read! I remember reading this back in '06 when I had CWS.HomeSearch; was nice to read it again (and actually understand what it meant :lol: )

Thanks for posting it.

No, I haven't heard from him at all since the server move last spring, when he needed me to fix the DNS.

How about:
http://75.127.110.25/~merijn/

That should always work. With some conditions. If the Merijn.org domain has the account name of 'merijn'. If the server is running cPanel, and if that option has been enabled. The tilde "~" plus account name, offers a way to access domains on cPanel servers bypassing DNS. However, it's often disabled by default, because access doesn't count toward any bandwidth limits assigned to the account.

I know Merijn is having trouble accessing FTP on merijn.org, but I don't think it would be related to DNS.

That works! Thanks Galadriel and Blair. I'll fix it on his front page.

Ask Merijn to contact me - I don't know why his ftp wouldn't work, if he is using the correct host 75.127.110.25

Actually I didn't research the meaning behind the tilde, I just went with what had already been posted and tried it myself and it worked. Hence me offering the suggestion. See below quote.

FYI...

- http://75.127.110.25/~merijn/index.php
September 10, 2008 - "For some reason, my FTP account to the website has been disabled, so I am unable to update files or pages on this domain. For the time being, I will post new versions of programs on my CastleCops upload page. A working mirror of the website is available at merijn.castlecops.com but I don't have FTP access there either (yet)..."
