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.


Archive.org seems to have a pretty complete snapshot from back in August.

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

Could it be an Innocents' day joke?

It looks like a joke to me.

Why? Maybe because it's not funny in the least :D

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.
Currently working on a diskmag-like collection of stories about retro computers I remember from my life. It'll run on cellphones (old and new) and blu-ray players (including various media-centers).
