top-5000.nl will disappear in the near future

Post by Rebel » Tue Jan 26, 2016 7:54 am

My website [ http://www.top-5000.nl/index.htm ] sooner or later will be cancelled and all CC related stuff will be removed because the site is taken over by a local community center. It's already in use once you use [ http://www.top-5000.nl ] only.

Meaning, download the stuff you didn't have yet.

Also, if you want some pages (downloads) to be spared from destruction drop me a note and I will try to import them on my new website.

Thank you for the warning. I downloaded old Rebels again just to be on the safe side but I think it would be nice to keep them at www.rebel13.nl in additon to historic games and downloadable programs for history's sake.

Thank you very much,

Well, I think the technical pages are invaluable, especially the `Inside ProDeo` pages. Many thanks for sharing the ideas used in Rebel/ProDeo.

Yes, absolutely! Those must be preserved.
Ed: couldn't you just backup/move the existing pages?

I think that most of the old DOS stuff is already ported, see:

I will make sure that page remains intact. Sooner or later I will port it to the new webspace. It's interesting, it is there since 2006/7 and it still gets 800-900 visits each month.
