Sure, but what's the future of RyanVM? Down for good or will someone post it as read-only, o at least extract unique content somewhere...

WinCert seems to be the next place for that kind of content that was at RyanVM. They have a files section that have many of the repacks integrators famous reuploaded from RyanVM (such as ricktendo and user_hidden). RyanVM was most famous for its repacks (switchless installers and lite installers) Recommend everyone post the files they have from RyanVM there on the WinCert files subsection that has file storage functionality.

When it rains, it pours....

Sorry for the recent outage. My hosting provider had to take my site offline due to it being under extreme load (looks like it was being DOSed or something). Hopefully a temporary issue....

We can identify for his problems, since MSFN has had the same problems on more than one occasion. :)

I was going to go post a "stay online" plea as well, but the site is down for me too.

:(

So Jody, please go ahead and make your post.

Cheers and Regards

With dups, Google has about 71 of the 48 pages cached.

Perhaps someone was trying to back the whole site up all at once!

It is possible. Recently, gfycat had announced it was deleting large portions of posts and the Archive team took to the task of backing up the site. Whatever their methods, it ended up causing bandwidth issues for them and they got their lawyers involved.
