Hi Mike,

I have attempted to shutdown the browser after logging out & then launch it again & logging in normally. And unfortunately, the problem persists. I have also tried with another browser, it fails. I can give u the message I get however :

This host is not allowed to log in to Macintosh Garden. Please contact your site administrator.
Sorry, unrecognized username or password. Have you forgotten your password?

Meanwhile, I have to stay connected to the site. Thanks. Smile

Hi, that is a pain to have happening. I don't understand why it might be acting like this for you, either. I've had a look through the logs and it is oddly showing you last logging in and on June 11th! Nonsense! I've tried a couple of tweaks on your IP and we'll see how that goes. If this persists I will have to ask my boss if he can help.

Not so false these logs. As I said already before, even I'm not here, I'm still logged in the site. I don't need to log out because I'm literally "scotched" (glued) on the tracker page. Like this, I have just to refresh the page to see what's new. It's faster than log in, click or select the page & then, refresh. But I was thinking even if I stay connected here, my IP can change in the meantime. And may be that's why the server ask me to change my password... It must think about two or more used IP during the same connection. The date u have noticed is certainly the day I was suddenly disconnected before it deny access & ask me to change my password several times. It ask me too for the second account I have...

Huh, u have a boss ? Well, I never figured out something else that u are the only boss here. I hope u won't have to disturb your boss. Wink

Cheers, MacTouch.

It appears that you've been beaten to the post in adding these archives, by bertyboy. He must have seen your post and decided to jump in and upload them himself.

Ah well, it saves you the bandwidth and time I suppose.

Yeah, I've seen it. Never mind, the ones I have downloaded are preinstalled versions... And, I have picked them from the site semv showed... So, bertyboy has better archives, well done to him.

I have all the time necessary if it is required. No problem with that too. Actually, my bandwidth is good, not all the time in a day, but most of days, it's good. But, yeah, sometimes, it's down & out. I have now only this connection, as the other optimized for download is definitively closed for the time being. However, I need to hold the connection open, if not, I can't reconnect the computer immediately to Internet. I have noticed besides that I need to change my password all the time I wanna disconnect & reconnect later to the site. I suppose the server don't like my IP. Smile If u can do something... Thanks.

I see that semvalidade2006 also replaced the broken part files with a fresh copy. He has made replacement copies previously when its pointed out to him. I wish tho' that all files were tested before uploading. It saves a lot of time in the long run. Not that I'm faultless, as I've not tested all archives I've uploaded (I usually do but sometimes I forget to).

Yep, but he didn't remove the redundant... Well, never mind with that. We should test the files, but finally, we don't. It's not only u, it's most of people. And u have no such time for it. Don't worry about that. We are doing that we can, even we should do more, but unfortunately, we're not so perfect .

Great to see you got a 1.x GB file up in one piece, too

Aah, well, I am connected since the last saturday. If I cut off the connection, I can't reconnect before the next saturday. I say that because this connection is free for me. And sometimes, the upload are faster than the download. Curious... But if I can help with it, I will do. However, if this connection is "closed", I can use another free one, but this one is poor in upload. It was also a test, I don't know if it will works also with biggest files. But I can say that clicking on the "save" button instead of "upload" after file selection seems avoiding any error like http 0. It's fogWraith who was suggesting this advice. Smile

You may not need to DL those Unreal archive parts (if you don't need them). I see that aurelios69 has found a solution to his problem with these files.

Well, I've seen that it works for him. And I'm happy that u have greatly helped him. He said you're awesome & it's true. Previously, u said we have a similar experience. I believe u are better than me, especially with software issues I never encounter. Unreal archives is now ready. No problem found, except that the one piece file finished with ".zip_", instead of ".zip" in its name. I have renamed it, but the Apple decompression program wanna recompress or archive it. So, I have tested with The Unarchiver & it works. May be, I will keep this game finally. I like Unreal, the original... Wink

Cheers, MacTouch.

Thanks for your answer, Mike. It's always a pleasure to read your posts, while u have no much time to write them. I've seen that the files are replaced, good. There are some others files that are not working. On the page I've created for Mac OS X Server 10.3, for example. Besides that, there are some redundant files too. I think it's because the files are not finalized. May be the uploader will replace the files soon with a larger one finally. It depends from its bandwidth and error "http=0". Beyond that, I must notice u with another problem. On the page Freedom Force, the link is not working for everybody, like me. So, I have put another link in a post who is working for me. But I don't know if it works for anyone. The link on the page is working for mrdav. I don't know why it's not working elsewhere. May be it is because it's on the uk that it's working for mrdav ? Well, it's rather strange (with no firewall nor proxy activated for my part). Just have a look if u can take time. Thanks in advance & thanks again for all your help. Oh & of course, I don't wanna fill out all of your page... Wink

Cheers, MacTouch.

Hi Mike,

I hope that things are going well for u. I am testing the new splitted files uploaded on the website & especially the two for an eMac. It appears that the files are not working. I have already asked the uploader to replace them. I am looking further for testing other files. I have some of them that seem corrupted, but I am downloading them again. On the other hand, I'm not sure that too long filenames are needed here, just for everybody not familiar with that, but, it's only my point of view & it's not very important. Wink

Cheers, MacTouch.

Looking at the server logs, it appears the server software was thinking your posts were spam attempts. I am sorry for that. The server can be pretty stupid (tho' it does stop actual real spammers several times a day also).

So, never mind, all right. The connection was so slow at some point, that generates this kind of problem. I've got the same with my mails... Wink

MacTouch

Sorry for the multiples posts on multiples StarCraft pages. Well, I have encounter some connection problems today. Of course, I'm not gonna spamming the website. In the meantime, I have realized that it would be certainly better to create a forum topic. That's what I've done that finally. All of the remainings posts, now useless, can be deleted according to your wishes. Thanks.

Cheers,

Same. I also read about these "new" Macs and thought, "I want one". But as it turned out I did acquire one eventually, and the price was a very affordable free

I am happy that you've got one of them. I'm sure that it fill all your desires. Smile

I liked the pix of the "Teapot". It looks just like my 660av except for the Teapot label, I don't like to think what price the seller is hoping for. The price of old Macson eBay here has gone ridiculous.

Yeah. I'm not interested to buy his machine for myself, whatever the price & even it's a prototype. But, it's true, it looks very well...

MacTouch

Hi Mike,

Thanks for taking time to read my page. Wink Well, happy to know that we have similar experiences. I already know that u own a 630 DOS, as I've seen some of your posts about it. Don't have regrets about the beasts 8xxx/9xxx, as it's like other Beige Mac, but simply faster. And of course, they can get between 3 & 6 PCI slots, a lot of RAM & space for additional drives. But finally, I prefered the Beige G3 instead. Personally, I don't like the PowerMac G5. However, when Apple proposed "Tempest" & "Cyclone" (Centris 660AV & Quadra 840AV), I was excited about it. I never bought such machines, because not enough money for. Besides that, someone is proposing a prototype of a 6100. It's a "Teapot" one & it's here, Teapot. Like u, I own some olds Intel Mac Mini. Perhaps we have the same tastes in olds Mac. Smile

description of mine

"About me" of course, my automatic spell checker plugged to my brain is malfunctioning... Smile

Hi Mike,

I've just added a little description of mine on my guestbook for people who could be interested in. If you have time, just have a look... Wink

Hi Mike,

Well, I'm glad too. However, I have not a new Internet connection. It's always the same. But, some days, it works well, others days, not. It's like a lottery... Well, I think I will now add a little description of me on the guestbook & if u interested to read it, you're welcome of course. I will do that probably in a few days. Meanwhile, I can say that I owned a large collection of Macintosh's softwares on CD some years ago. Yep, it was considered like piracy or equivalent. Now, it's slightly different... I owned too much that I can use. There were a lot of PhotoShop's Plug'ins & many X'tensions (XPress). Well, now, I have lost all of them 5 years ago after a moving. But, fortunately, I have retrieved a lot through you. So, thanks again for your devotion to preserve them. Smile

Cheers,

Hi Mike,

Yes, I understand that it will be boring to move larger files from this page to another one. In any case, my connection was so "randomized", well. Never mind, don't worry. But, finally, I retrieved my best connection today. And, now, surprise ! the page is complete & ready. May be the force is with us for now... Wink If you have any trouble with the modifications added, just let me know, then. Ah & another good surprise for the end... It's in the title ! Smile

Hi Mike,

Well. Today is a bad day. Sad Nothing going to work correctly. No network, no web, nothing... There is 5 discs for the page, 1 DVD & 4 CD, but I'm trying to add only the third, as the fourth is very small. This one can be added easily after moving the page. The only problem is for the 3rd disc. It is already "splitted" like all the others (except the small one) before the beginning of the uploads. But even "splitted" or not, the upload may fails. My connection must be strong enough to support that. In that case, even u are doing other tasks, the connection must support it. The only reason of failure is the too slowest bandwidth. I hope retrieving a good one very soon.

Cheers,
MacTouch

Just for informations, this message appears when fail :

An HTTP error 0 occurred. /filefield_nginx_progress/60b5c0214c27c4d9f7855bc1d90f5f6e

I guess u know what's it means...

Cheers...

Hi Mike,

Well, for the moment, all my tentatives are vain. Perhaps, I will receive a "boost" with my connection during monday, but not sure... Downloading is also slow, but I can continue DL the files where it was stopped & I have DL the Disc 2 & it's ok. Sorry for taking your time. Yesterday, I was disconnected suddenly. If I can, I must stay connected, not here especially, but on the Internet. I can't reconnect immediately if not & I have to wait a long time for a reconnection. So, even if u see me connected, I'm not... Well, I hope finishing my "touches" (yeah) anyway. I will try another attempt for now, wait & see...

Cheers,

Hi Mike,

Ok. That's looking very good. All the checksums are corrects. And I'm so happy to learn that the DVD is bootable and operational. There is the 3rd CD who needs to be uploaded. But actually, the connection is too slow to hope a successful transfer, even it's a part. So, I'm waiting for another moment to do that...

Beyond this, I will add a serial number on the page later, because it's required for uses. I have also the Apple Part Number of this product. Should I add it too ? I will complete the page once all the definitives files are uploaded into it. Smile

Cheers,
MacTouch

MacTouch

Hi Mike,

Today is a good day. I have uploaded all of the part files for the DVD image & the 2 first CD. Yesterday, only 6 files & now, 18 on the page!!! As you can see & for the moment, you will have to rebuild only the DVD image (no more taff finally Smile ). Yes, my bandwidth has been accelerated since the morning (but not actually, too slow...). So, the last file pass, but just in time. Tongue Just tell me if you need MD5 checksum. I will try tomorrow for the last file(s)...

Well, I have a request. Perhaps, you have the same idea in mind, but I wonder if I can create a new page. A "definitive" page for the public where you can upload all the definitives files. But, if so, I will complete it soon. I am thinking about next monday because it's a special day for me. The actual page looks good, but there is too much changes now on it.

In the meantime, there is a request for the next version (Leopard Server) now. Even we can found & upload this one, we are just in time or we'll have to wait the end of 2017/beginning of 2018 to add (10 years since the release date, 2007) ? I think mrdav know that or may be you. But, if I can find it, I will tell you.

Cheers,

Hi Mike,

Yes, that's what I was thinking about. But, finally, you're right before, my Internet connection is bad at some moments. I have only to wait for the best. May be on the night... If I get a chance, I will arrive to finish this task very soon. On the night, the connection looks more reliable & faster. So, now, may the force be with us... Wink
