Sarinee had backups of the reviews.
None of the downloads.

Thumbs up

So not everything is lost, thankfully.

replacementdocs.com has a lot of manuals that came from HOTU, or in some cases, even better copies.

Default Rip

HotU was, perhaps, the second abandonware site I knew, and since that moment it became the first thing I though about when abandonware was mentioned. Only in the last years this shifted in favor of Abandonia .

It is sad to see HotU get down like this... (I don't know if the last phrase has sense) It will be remembered...

As for the conservation effort, I think I still have some reviews and downloads, although I lost a lot of them when some of my old back-up cds where left in an innapropriate place... (yep, my stupid fault...). If this project gets online, please send a link.

Good bye HotU, you will be remembered...

I thought something was up when I googled HOTU and nothing came up... at least now there are some RIP HOTU sites at the top of pagerank. I don't know what's worse... that a part of me died, or that i almost didn't notice.

My first post on Abandonia. Seems fitting that it is in commemoration of an earlier Abandonware site. The king is dead. Long live the king.

Default R.i.p.

It's a pity that Home Of The Underdogs had to cease its activity because of low funds. There will always be a place in our memories for such a great abandonware place.
