Not until you pointed it out.


Was that the site with all the Homebrew Software Reviews? I'll answer my own question with a No, that's Homebrew.at site.


Unsure what Push 'n' Pop had on their site.  :(

CPC demoscene stuff, basically.

PnP was mostly demo stuff with a lively community, but also discussions on homebrew hardware projects if I recall correctly. A shame...

It would be more acceptable to suggest the Illegal box of Fireworks sitting next to the Server were set alight.


But then no Server no domain?

It's sad to see the CPC community shrink. :(

I hate to say it, but as we all get older, it probably won't get any better.

I read and thought that eating too much and puking over the server was the joke. :) It sounds too crazy to be true.

Loosing a backup and not being able to restore it is not funny, but then if it is a joke this is added for more effect.

I thought of the old times when a student friend ran an internet service provider and the server was in their room. If they accidentally kicked it, everyone was off line. Ooops!

Now a lot of servers are in a remote location, and the only way to stop that is hacking not puke ;)

Funny, I have kind of the opposite perception, as I just wrote about in my project "8bit Stories".
This "2nd CPC era" as I'm calling it, seems to be growing all the time with new games and new hardware projects coming out all the time.
I think it's an awesome time to be a CPC enthusiast in.

It's quite possible that the actual size of the community isn't as big as in the old days, but to me it feels bigger than in the old days because we have easy access to communication with each other now.

.

I agree. I'm 43 and and I'm seeing much younger people around here with much enthusiasm and talent. Especially contribution from countries such as France and Spain is so encouraging (same as 25 years ago)

The CPC community as a whole may not shrink that much (quite the opposite I think too). The demoscene part of it on the other hand ... might be better off doing their thing than maintaining a website.

RIP.

That's sad. I loved quite reading a few of their bits.

Well, hopefully they'll post their news here like they did this year.

If you miss the graphical side, you can still admire Barjack's work at CpcTrolls (Beta version) (of which PushNPop was only a pale copy)

@PulkoMandy : huh, never knew of that site before... what is it? Seems empty?

Yes, cpctrolls was never completed, it is only an empty shell experimenting with Barjack's crazy ideas. The same design was later reused for Push'n'Pop with a lot less functionalities.
