It went down, and some guy on metafilter reconstructed the entire thing.

I think some of them may not yet be accessible... but there were a number that did allow for download.

AWESOME!!

Out of sheer joy I created a microbadge ... actually I was kinda surprised it didn't exist yet.

It can be purchased here.

Yeah, that was a problem shortly before they went down, too.

I read an interview with the woman who runs the site, and she said that there's not really a backup, and she doesn't even have most of the files that used to be there. So it'll probably be a while before they can pull everything together.

Still, this is a step in the right direction!

On a related note, the High Voltage Sid Collection (which had suffered from a drive crash and had been down for months as a consequence) is back up again:
