ftp.tidbits.com Down

ftp.tidbits.com Down -- For various reasons, the machine that runs <ftp.tidbits.com> died yesterday. Northwest Nexus is working on getting a new machine up in its place, but they currently estimate a 10 to 12 day downtime.

The upshot of this is that none of the Anarchie bookmarks that ship with my book, The Internet Starter Kit will work, since they point at a directory on that machine. Nor will you be able to retrieve TidBITS or any files from the Info-Mac mirror part of <ftp.tidbits.com> until the machine comes back up.

I'll post another note when the machine is back and functional again. In the meantime, I recommend that you look at AOL's Info-Mac mirror for Internet files and issues of TidBITS in: [ACE]
