My ‘vpsland’ thing is back online

I’m not to happy with my solution, but it’ll suffice for now.

So every day, I have cron fetch me a new password from makeagoodpassword.com,  update some httpassword entry, and use PHP for a simple redirect.

So let’s say I wan to get neko for the i386, the link was http://vpsland.superglobalmegacorp.com/install/WindowsNT4.0-i386/games/neko98-i386.7z  Now when you click on the link you get a 404 looking page that has a link to the new directory structure, and includes the username & password (I’m not currently evil enough to generate a random user, but I may have to do that in the future…).

New password procedure

Click the click here link!

So the new path lives in the /old directory making the new location of neko98 http://vpsland.superglobalmegacorp.com/old/install/WindowsNT4.0-i386/games/neko98-i386.7z

So use the username/password combo on the page, and you’ll be good to go.

Enter the username / password

For example user/rapidred92

Sorry about all this.

About neozeed

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!

  1. It’s sad to see that you have to go through all this hassle, but I’m glad you took the effort. Your site has been a regular stop for me for quite some time now. I’d miss something if it were gone. Thanks!

    • Yeah I’ve survived a week+ outage on blogger, countless hosting issues, and now this insanity. That reminds me, I need to check that my rsync is working… !

      The worst part is that I miss having a dedicated server, it was incredibly handy.
