I had a question about the site, and if things are still going with it? I understand the site got hacked a while back, but 66% of the site is still down, it appears! The Wiki and News are returning 404's. So I was wondering if plans are still proceeding to promote DIY Book scanners or if it's a dead project? I was anxious to look at the plans for making my own frame. Could anyone point me in the right direction?

Heelgrasper wrote:I have to wonder what you base that number on. My best estimate is that about 10% of the site is still down. And it's the 10% that was rarely being updated. Can't really think of anything that was in the Wiki or the news that you can't find in the forum where hardly a day goes by without some new improvement to software or hardware.

For now, my plan is to replace the main diybookscanner.org page with a wordpress installation, so I can have news right there and keep things updated. That will replace the old /news page. As for the wiki, I'm loathe to put up a new one. We had more people spending more time fighting spam than we did having people writing actual content. It felt like a poor use of their time.
