Tried to look at: http://n8vem-sbc.pbworks.com message: workspace disabled
and also https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/n8vem message: There is no group named “n8vem”

Anybody knows what gives? Gone forever?

I would think it's only temporary, maybe they're launching a whole new site and got behind on the project.

Look like the new forum is up, with an archive of the google group n8vem posted:

http://www.retrobrewcomputers.org/forum/index.php

Afaik everything related to the n8vem sites (the google groups n8vem and n8vem-s100, and the n8vem pbworks wiki) was archived before those sites were closed, but I don't see the n8vem-s100 archive there yet. There is a thread on rebuilding the pbworks wiki.

I have a complete archive of the pbworks site, including revisions and comments. I've sent a copy of that to the retrobrewcomputers.org admin. I believe that the previous admin of the pbworks site has sent him a copy as well. One of those copies should show up in the near future to act as a base for filling the new retrobrewcomputers.org wiki.

I also sent the retrobrewcomputers admin an archive of the mailing list and he has linked it here:

http://www.retrobrewcomputers.org/n8vem-gg-archive/

An archive of the S100 mailing list that he generated is here:

http://s100computers.com/N8VEM_Archive/maillist.html

The new S100 mailing list is at:

https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/s100computers

There isn't a clear consensus as to the direction the main group will take to replace the mailing list. For now, discussion is taking place on the retrobewcomputers.org forums.

Google should be picking up the new links soon, which should help direct people to the new locations for the projects.

Hello,

I'm the admin of the retrobrewcomputers.org site, which I've setup for everyone who was previously involved in the N8VEM group. Andrew Lynch asked us to discontinue the use of his ham radio sign for the various boards and projects, and coincident with that request he closed down the old wiki and group. So we are moving to hosting things on our own hosting, to make sure the data is not locked up in propritary solutions like PBWiki or Google Groups.

We are having some issues with the outgoing registration/password reset emails on the new web hosting being intercepted by the hosting companies overzealous outgoing spam filter, so registration emails for the wiki/forum are not making it to new users. For now, the best way to "sign up" is to send me an email at abingham <at> gmail.com with your desired login username, email, and "Real Name", and I'll get accounts setup within a day or so on both the wiki and the forum.

For information on the archives of the legacy discussions and wiki, please see: RBC Forum - Legacy PBWiki & Google Group Archive (http://www.retrobrewcomputers.org/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=9&start=0&). I'd ask everyone to please respect the notes about the use of this content, which is primarily intended to aid members in re-populating the new wiki - so I don't have to resort to controlling access. The N8VEM-S100 list is archived on John C's site at http://s100computers.com/N8VEM_Archive/maillist.html

I also have an archive of the N8VEM-S2I mailing list, that I will get processed and posted as well.

Andrew Bingham
