Tip for the dreaded "Server Not Found" message

Unread post by oldposterho » Thu Nov 02, 2017 2:01 pm

Discovered a little trick to get around the "Server Not Found" message when you're trying to get to the "Download associated files..." link. If you delete everything before "...archive.org..." in the URL they pop right up.

Change:
ia700709.us.archive.org/14/items/movingwor39chal

To:
archive.org/14/items/movingwor39chal

This is helpful when you want to use the .txt files to search for matches when the online version errors out. That said, bless the MHDL and their team, it is truly a resource of incalculable value. Hope this is of use to somebody else.
