    Lightbulb Defunct OLS/FRHS/Angel Links websites & resources

    Defunct OLS/FRHS/Angel Links websites & resources-aisha-gif

    Due to the recent discussion regarding the FRHS 'Take-Out' art book and FRHS audio drama, I did a little digging. I knew that FRHS existed and that it was set in the same universe (although apparently not the same 'Era'...judging by the wiki and manga fan translation, it takes place in the Fixed Stars Era) as OLS, but I didn't know much more. That reminded me that Mantis had done some work enumerating and/or documenting the domains of old or defunct OLS fan pages, forums, resources. I'm not sure how far that got, but I'd like to know who the Nexus' contemporaries are (or used to be).

    As most of us know, FRHS being the chronological precursor to OLS shares a few characters and themes in common, but I predict that with an eventual translation there may be far more connections than us English-speakers are aware of. By complete coincidence, I found this page referencing the art book we were just discussing yesterday.

    Which alerted me to the defunct Outlawstar.net, which I perused using the Wayback Machine, discovering this neato Downloads page. Nothing really new here, Mantis has the Pilot up on YouTube and the other videos aren't OLS related. The wallpapers are fan-made as far as I can tell so that's not a goldmine either.

    Anyway, I got thinking how deep this rabbit hole could possibly go. I expect Mantis has done a lot of digging so if it doesn't already exist elsewhere, can we get a repository/directory/discussion going around obscure/nearly-lost OLS content resources?

    I backed up some Sunrise and Takehiko Ito sites using a service that rips websites from the Wayback Machine, but it's not just simple HTML so they had to write some code to display it, though I don't know the ins and outs. What I do know is that for this to run it needs a certain kind of web server. Unfortunately for me, my DreamHost hosting is not going to cut it, so I'd probably end up needing to pay for a dedicated server to simply put these site backups online which is just a little too much. I will look into solutions in the future. Doing this would effectively allow me to "fix" the sites, repairing any bad links and replacing broken images... and most importantly translating them into English.

    I know of Laughing Hyena and I saw his/her posts on the .net site many years ago and before it became a complete cesspool. We're pretty lucky Angelfire is somehow still standing and that's an interesting page you found.

    I'd really like to create some kind of repository. I was recently contacted by a fan who was talking about an old site called Blue Heaven, but I couldn't find much about it. I'd still like to salvage what I can, but there's the server problem.

    Okay, I just looked into it and from what I recall it needs full Apache support which my shared DreamHost hosting does not have. I can get a VPS instead but I haven't looked into transferring all of my current hosting to it. To be honest the VPS is only $4 more a month but I'd need to read up on a lot of this. I'd probably want to host a VPS separately so I don't balls-up the whole server as VPS is all manual. Here's their take on it.

    I've got hosting with Apache support if you want me to host them for the time being.

    Sure, it's certainly worth giving it a shot at the very least, and I'd be glad to split the cost of a domain for the repository if it's all good to go. I'll send you the files.

    Okie dokie. I'll need to figure out Apache and all that but let me see what you're working with (no homo) and i'll go from there.

    Zemekis, I gotta thank you for bringing up the wayback machine because it helped me track down a rarity. An interview with Bob Bucholz on Outlawstar.org. I've been meaning to find it for years and the only proof I ever found of it's existence was a brief news blerb on anime news network. I was able to track it down thanks to the wayback machine. It's a rare, cool interview that goes in the voice acting process and his experience making the show.

    Wow, what a great find. I'd kill for an opportunity to talk to him once I've finally fleshed out that sister site which is getting delayed due to other priorities within the fanbase. Man, how good it would be to put up some interviews there, though I think I may get the opportunity to do just that in the near future.

    No promises right now as there have been some delays but it's pretty much been given the go-ahead so I'll fill all of you in (Zem and Starwind already know what I'm talking about) as soon as I can.

    It made my day to come into work, check the Nexus, and have that gem waiting for me. As Bob says at the end, we had better get ready for a sequel!
    IT COULD HAPPEN ANY DAY NOW.

    In addition, Starwind's post was more of what I was looking for from my original post in this thread. I'm happy you provided me with some resources to get an old site back up and running, but my goal was to get a list going here (as much for the other people in the community as for myself), perhaps some Wayback Machine links, to stuff like outlawstar.org. Ya see, I didn't even know they even existed in the past.

    Remember, the Wayback Machine isn't guaranteed to keep running forever. Anything could happen, whether it's a financial issue or a nuclear explosion. Okay, probably not the latter, but the only surefire way to keep these sites archived is to archive them yourself.

    I'll probably end up doing that myself, one way or another.

    Might look into this over lunch break today if the new staff orientation doesn't affect my lunch break.
