Question Screenlets for Ubuntu/Gnome - Screenlets.org


This is not really an OS related question. This is about screenlets.org. For a while now I have been unable to access screenlets.org. Apparently, they had a massive crash. Now, every time I do to the web-site, there is a notice about restoring the database. This notice has been up now at 3-4 weeks (if not more). I was wondering if anyone knows what is going on with screenlets.org and if, or when, they will be back up? Thanks

Hi!

I opened a new page in Google and found this article:

http://is.screenlets.org.downorblocked.net/
And this one as well:
http://screenlets.org/Documentation/...ets-pysrc.html

I did not have any trouble going to this website.
It could be that your browser may need to be updated.

Also; sometimes (depending on the time of day) servers can be so busy that you may not able to
gain access to a site.

You could write to the webmaster@localhost of the screenlets.org organization or file a complaint about the websites reputation-

I looked for an article to confirm as to whether screenlets had a massive crash or not.
I or should I say Google did not find anything to support that.

12GB and takes time to upload 12GB to our server....

So, unless they changed their URL or some other such thing, Screenlets.org is unobtainable.

I ran "is it down or just me" and ... YES ... the web-site is up.

If they did change their URl wouldn't that have been made clear?

I suppose anything is possible. Anyway since you have found that this website is indeed unobtainable it looks like the only thing left to do now is decide how to manage this.

You could file a complaint but that's up to you-

Hi yes I'm the administrator of screenlets.org, the website is currently
down because of database crash, I was able to recover as website says,
but the upload of this file was taking so long because of my limited
upload bandwith, I restablish the upload and it will take 2 days to
complete.

Thanks for contacting me.
