For sure the following URL was working on 13 July 2016:
“Sorry, you are not allowed to post external links”, this site tells me.
Deep sigh. Alright, we’ll play the game. Go to my site below, and you’ll find the exact URL i tried to post here on my X-10 home page.
How do i know? I maintain the barely-useful World O’ X-10 sub-site at siber-sonic, which is in fact a dotcom, and i did an external link check that day. I remember having to do a whole lot of messing around to get it to work, but not exactly what i did. Things like SSL vs. standard http, with/without www, and maybe with/without the /idobartana/. The older link i had did not work, but i was eventually able to get it working and changed the references on my X-10 pages to what i found worked on that day. Seemed flaky, but i wasn’t up to archiving the site then (or now).
Very, very sad if it’s truly gone—it was a great resource which helped me often. I remember communicating with Mr. Bartana something like 15 years ago, when he wanted to add something from my site to his. I saved some of the content in various forms (Safari web archives, PDFs) on an as-i-needed-it-personally basis. Maybe if enough of us did that and pooled everything, we could get most of it back. I’m in neither a psychological nor economic position to host all that material on my site in the near-term (next year or several), but if things change and no one else steps up, i might consider it in the future.
