Dear All,

So it's not perfect (see later) but I can say that

https://amaus.net/static/S100/ is back up at fibre speeds.

Friends will know that we relocated back from Switzerland to the UK and part of the deal was that our new home (in the English countryside) would have a Fibre to the Home Internet connection.

In the UK Fibre to the Home is extremely rare and Fibre to the cabinet is useless because our driveway is exactly 1Km long and then the nearest cabinet is even further away meaning the last copper leg would reduce any fibre speed down to 5 megatbits/second.

Anyway, after a lot of jiggling we finally, over 18 months late have a Fibre to the Home connection. And whilst it is still 100 times slower, and no I do not mean 100% slower than the connection I would order in Switzerland today, well it is considerably faster than 5 Megabit/second.

So at last, amaus.net is back up reliably 24x7

My mirror site hosted in the USA https://amaus.org/static/S100 is still up, as an old person I have to remember that one always needs a backup.

Any access issues then please get thru via https://plus.google.com/+MarcusBennettamouse , oh and please don't try and download entire portions of the site as then you or your whole ISP will end up getting blocked :-(

thanks for reading.

The new site has disappeared and Wayback hasn't archived anything but the top-level directory.

Does anyone know where the site content may now be found ... or is it gone-for-good :-{?

Thank you. Fingers crossed ...
