cia.vc dead

Post by dark » Thu Sep 27, 2012 5:04 am

That widget on the front page doesn't work anymore as http://cia.vc is dead and they don't appear to be trying to come back. I see the "Ilkotech" website, but from the looks of that website it seems to be a stretch that it will ever come back.

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

No, no, no! I was visiting cia.vc quite often, now to realize they did not have any backup. Farewell, dear cia.vc

It's funny - cia.vc tried to shut down itself for quite a while already! Here's something from more than a yrear ago:

The back-ups impeded the efforts back then, but they finally addressed and permanently solved the back-up problem now!

If it's permanent, we'd better remove the "View latest commits at CIA.vc" link at getbuilds.

In the upcoming new ReactOS website a new widget should be added to parse the GIT logs. That way there won't be any reliance on third parties like CIA.VC.

Wow, I had wondered what that CIA.VC had to do with anything anyway. I had assumed that feed was powered by whatever updates the mailing lists. I prefer reading the mailing list archive anyway. (Trying to make a "Rube Goldberg" contraption, are we? Well, I've seen crazier)

And BACKUP, BACKUP, BACKUP!! Oh, right, it is in teh cloudz and magically doesn't need backup. :lol:

Why don't we just make it simple and replace the link to cia.vc with http://svn.reactos.org/svn/reactos/?view=log?
