    Virtualdr.com seems to be missing!

    This message is all I get from every page link I have..

    Gone
    The requested resource
    /search.php
    is no longer available on this server and there is no forwarding address. Please remove all references to this resource.

    Apache Server at discussions.virtualdr.com Port 80
    Hope this gets fixed. Soon.

    Sharky's and Just Linux are the same way...... And the answer is:

    We sold those forums almost 3 years ago, but the buyer never took them over. As they are some of the last sites on a group of servers we’re trying to retire, we’ve decided to stop hosting them.

    I'm not sure why your posts are getting sent to Pre Mod..... I up'd your post count to 50 but I don't think that helped....

    Create a post anywhere but the OT section to see what happens.

    The new owners of the last nine sites might maybe be interested.

    BUT, the owners of VDR, Sharky's, Just Linux and Windrivers haven't been heard from in months.

    They took control of the Domain registration but never took the data.

    I've reached out to Martha, Nick and Broni about meeting here.

    Wow, that was abrupt. I guess you can't really fault them if the new owners had 3 years to take over. Oh well.

    As I told Steve a few minutes ago, not much of a shock about Sharky's and Just Linux but, sure hard to believe that good 'ol VirtualDr is gone.

    When Broni stops by, we'll see what he says.

    And DOC - The new owner of Windrivers is the same one for the other three sites... They let Windriver die a horrible death.

    Unfortunately, the few remaining loyal VirtualDr users won't have any idea what happened.

    Yeah. That's such a shame. I'm thinking though if we reference the website here enough in these threads that google might pick it up and lead them here if they search for it. http://discussions.virtualdr.com/

    There's a thread in bleepingcomputer that references virtualdr that's no. 3 spot on google.

    We should all do an advanced targeted google search for virtualdr.com a few times/day to try and get this thread higher in google search returns so anyone googling to find out what happened may find this.

    www.virtualdr.com site:sysopt.com
    And click on the result.

    Good idea. Here's a direct link: Google: virtualdr.com site:sysopt.com

    BTW, if anyone is interested here's a link to that VirtualDr thread over on BleepingComputer: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/for...com/?p=5017417
