CGS Site going, going.....

Post by the bad producer » Thu Sep 20, 2018 7:04 am

I guess the CGS site is being migrated over to Elby, but if you want to keep hold of the info that might disappear (ie not supported by PCBs) like the V8 simulator etc now would be a good time to grab it!

Welp! It's already gone, did anyone grab a snapshot of that site before it was gone? I understand that most information can be found on Laurie's site, but I rather liked the CGS site, shallow structure, nice descriptions. Such a great resource! Sorry to see it go!

Thanks for the heads up.
Are you downloading individual pages or have you a method to download the whole site?

I had saved most but just happened across the 404, I don't know about saving entire sites so added what else (single pages) I hadn't got from the archive...

Yeah its just sitting on archive.org now, its a shame. I have most of it as printouts from 5 years ago... sorry trees.
This was a brilliant resource, a shame to see it go in that form, nice that Laurie has most of it.

Thank you! Downloaded.

I have a lot of links pointing to CGS on pugix.com that will need fixing. :cry:

Downloaded, Thanks!

I hope the PCBs will be available for a long time, I still have to get many of them.
Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, Where the heck is the ceiling? :hmm:

Arrgh hadn't thought of that! Maybe it will be resurrected at Elby, though I guess the address will be different.

My plan is to replace them with the PDF files. It'll be a bit of work. While I'm at it, I can add a featured image to each page.

Uhhhh I guess I am not up to speed on what is going on with CGS. Of course I think I live in a cave and miss a lot of news. Did CGS go out of business?

Amazing JanneI :yay:

I think Laurie is taking over the business side of things, so I'm pretty confident that all the info will migrate over to Elby, and hopefully we'll see more new CGS stuff in 4U, Laurie has already re-released the CGS ASR (possibly after a prompting from Modular Addict?!). I'm hoping for the 73 VCO in 4U to be released as that would complete the 1973 'system' quite nicely!

I guess what might not get ported over are the things that aren't current PCB projects :hmm:

Ignore
If at first you don't succeed read the instruction manual.

Hang on... I thought Elby was 3U only. What have I missed?

I hope "that one" sub-site of Ken's was archived somehow. I don't really reference it much these days, but every once in a while I think of something I'd like to look up there.

You're welcome! These are from archives (8/20/2018) and couple of pages were invisible pics only, so those I left out. I'd say 98% is there.

That's sad, mainly because of all the good work those guys did, but we're probably at a point these days where it's not needed all that much I suppose. I think I have some of the files backed up somewhere that I made use of more often as reference material.

I get updates once in a blue moon that someone added something but I never go back and check.
I have the the file dump circa 2009 i think
