Again?
There's a mirror thread of the same prob. just - what?: 2, 3 weeks ago?
Webgrognards eventually got back online....
Hopefully its just a server prob. vs. something more difficult to correct.

Bummer. Yes, it was down for a few days (last week?), but had been working fine again...until today.

Its sort of lucky that I mirrored the site for personal use when it came back up last time. Quite an important resource found no where else.

Thought only the host could do that ~ please tell us how it is done.

Quote of myself:

Yep, you can use what is called a "web spider" or an "offline web-browser" to mirror the webpage structure and links to your hard-drive. But be-careful, if you delve too deeply down too many links, you may download too much for your hard drive!

I've done this for Grognard.com and I have about 85% of the webpage on the harddisk at home. You will miss a few things because you don't delve down enough links but its pretty darn good never the less.

Its a very important source of stuff for us wargamers and irreplaceable!

Grognard.com is changing hosts. It should be up again in the next week.
