cia.vc dead

Post by dark »

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.

its dead some days now, yeah..... last time it was passing away and was taken over by another owner.
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?
