Post Site Generally Archives is not working
Hello, I just want to report that the site Generally Archives (one with the icon on the top right) is not working. I'm sure two days ago it was working but now it isn't. Even if the site wasn't updated from long, it was full of stuffs difficult if not impossible to find on other sites.

Longbow (responsible for the GWR Archives) wasn't active since September. Also we was unregularly online until then. And the page wasn't updated at all. (I tried to bring my German language pack to his page, he didn't made it.).

If I remember well, last update on the site was dated 2011, so Longbow give up on working on it from long, but now which could be the solution? I can't think about many stuffs going lost so easily.

Thanks a lot RobertRacer for your help. As you said only some download work, but it's enough for the moment. For the others which don't work I assume we have to wait for Longbow comeback. In future there will be others who will search for these things and it's important to have them available (if possible).

The site looks like being back online, whatever the reason for downtime was. :)

I think we should consider to upload here stuffs stored in other sites or no longer available anywhere, probably with a simplified process in terms of permissions.
