Jim Ablett Unix chess programs

Post by Canoike » Sun Oct 13, 2019 4:20 pm

Hello,

I have bookmarked Jim Ablett's web page containing a lot of 32 and 64 bits Unix/linux chess engines.
http://kirr.homeunix.org/chess/engines/Jim%20Ablett/
Also here : https://www.chessprogramming.org/Jim_Ablett

I get this :
"You don't have permission to access /chess/engines/Jim Ablett/ on this server."

Is there another place where his precious work was saved ?

Thank you.

In case a site is gone or down for a while, you'll always find a wayback archives mirror snapshot, at least if the site had some importance.

All the time. In every conversation. You must post. Something. It's like you just can't help yourself.

Good news, the Jim Ablett collection is back at http://kirr.homeunix.org/chess/engines/Jim%20Ablett/.

I made a backup of the collection as well, at https://mega.nz/#F!P10URKzI!5hiV02lv1VgBTg3LxUBiew.

I have a number of JA compiles that were not part of the original collection. As well, the original collection had a few corrupt files. I have clean versions of most of these corrupt files. It will take a bit of time for me to organize all this, but I will update my site when the task is done.
