Everything I am seeing on this topic is 6 months old??

Why can this not be fixed?

SO this work - around still works? how do I use the wayback machine??? Because I can get the main page to view.. but anything else I try and look at fails.

This is really too bad, it looked like a great reasource.

You can get some of the information at least to show if you navigate to the desired 'blank' page and then select the 'view source' tab. Not particularly handy on the main page, but if you have a specific article page it should show (to some extent better or worse!), which is pretty much what wongck pointed to in one of the posts above.

I think it is just down to Dal finding the time to fix it which I don't think he has at the moment, afaik the way the wiki is setup it uses the same user database as AF so it's not that that easy to just hand it off to someone else to fix unfortunately, plus I'm sure there are some other complications I am unaware of. Would love to see it back just like everyone else as I have 5 articles ready to drop into it when it does

I also hope it will be up soon.
I wanted to update on the CT63 flashing part among others.

Hi All,

I only have time for fleeting visits to the forum at the moment. I have a few PMs that I’m yet to open.

It will get looked at - there are a number of issues with the wiki to resolve so it’s not a quick fix by any stretch.

I have far more urgent things to attend to for the time being, but rest assured it’s not forgotten.
TT030: 4MB/16MB + Crazy Dots, Mega"SST" 12, MegaSTE, STE: Desktopper case, IDE interface, UltraSatan (8GB + 512Mb) + HXC floppy emulator. Plus some STE's/STFM's
