Unhappy Download problems with few games I tried

Hello and happy holidays everyone.

I just found this site, after searching for Master of Magic (a favourite old game) and it all looks fantastic.. except I cannot download games. I tried with Master of Magic, Master of Orion and Dune II and all of them give me "Cannot Display Page" or similar (in different browsers I tried) message after clicking the Get it! icon. I read that there was some issue with the server hosting the site a month ago, is it possible that it is the same issue? Thanks a lot!

Right now, the file server is offline and remote power cycling does not work.
We're trying to contact the people in charge about that, but... well, you know. It's Christmas. :/ (HATE. HATE. HATE.)

Thanks a lot for the reply, I will try next few days.. Not really a rush, just was worried that the problem might be in me or my internet settings somehow.

I had read an earlier thread on the secondary file server outside of the site / forums that stored the archives and figured this to be the case.

Lol to Christmas comment! I was thinking the same thing when I read the earlier thread. "Server must be down and its Christmas weekend, ugh!" Wonder if they work on Saturdays... If it was my office, the answer is no...

I should put up a newspost with a pic of a sleeping reindeer next to a ringing telephone Because Santa's stuck headfirst down a chimney somewhere and everyone's gone home.

Default same problem

Time Paradox wouldn't download for me, either. And neither would the forums display properly. Only four forums would show. Is the site having problems?

I would be the first to have that one portrayed on my office wall!

Btw, I'm open for location / browser testing once they have reestablished the server connectivity if needed... Good Weekend to all!
