In case you should get to the thread Satellites : general discussion and musings, let me save you some trouble, at least for the first 37 pages. I started copying the non-working links a year or so ago but never got around to read the full thread. At least it's a start:

Alright, thank you for your patience. I believe the German site is now "up to date", and thanks to your help the original English-version SeptemberClues.info is also improved.

As for those problems in the Satellites thread, we will have to address those sooner or later, for sure. Whew! :blink:

Thanks hoi!
Is there a reason why you didn't remove the German box on the English site or did you just forget?

I noticed that the non-breaking hyphen didn't work on the website. I should not have used it. (I wanted the pdf files to be an easier read.) I have gone through the files again to see how often it happened. Eight times in total. If you wouldn't mind, could you please change them and add a regular hyphen after "9/11" in the following instances:

a1_[Main]_The Power of Imagery_(Die Macht der Bilder)
error: 9/11Planer ein schlecht qualifiziertes Animationsteam
should be: 9/11-Planer ein schlecht qualifiziertes Animationsteam

a4.1_[Main]_Airplane Animations_(Flugzeug-Animationen)
error: 9/11 Geschichte vorgetragen werden
should be: 9/11-Geschichte vorgetragen werden

a4.2_[Main]_Collapse Animations_(Einsturz-Animationen)
error: 9/11 Animationsteams
should be: 9/11-Animationsteams

Regarding this page, you forgot to change the text to fit the picture/analysis:
error (English): his WTC tower only shows 39 out of 59 beams !
should be: his WTC tower only shows 39 out of 57 beams !
error (German): Sein WTC-Turm zeigt nur 39 von 59 Stahlträgern!
should be: Sein WTC-Turm zeigt nur 39 von 57 Stahlträgern!

a4.4.6_[Main]_THE “JUMPERS“_(DIE „SPRINGER“)
error: 9/11 Amateurvideos gezeigt
should be: 9/11-Amateurvideos gezeigt

a5.0_[Main]_The Memorial Scams_(Die Gedenkschrift-Betrügereien)
error: 9/11 Opfer wurden sehr wahrscheinlich
should be: 9/11-Opfer wurden sehr wahrscheinlich

This page also contains an error of mine:
error: In 2001 war die allgemeine Öffentlichkeit
should be: Im Jahr 2001 war die allgemeine Öffentlichkeit

a5.1_[Main]_Ridiculously Bad Vicsim Pic Collection_(Abgrundtief schlechte Sim-Opferbilder)
error: 9/11 Gedenkseiten gefunden
should be: 9/11-Gedenkseiten gefunden
(btw I noticed that on the German site the background in the subchapter "THE RIDICULOUSLY BAD MEMORIAL PHOTOS" is brown whereas on the English site it is white.)

c5.0_[Adv.R]_The Vicsim Report_(Der Sim-Opfer-Bericht)
error: 9/11 Opferproblematik
should be: 9/11-Opferproblematik

d2.2_[DIY]_Archived Terrorism Victims_(Archivierte Terrorismus-Opfer)
error: mit vielen Fotos aus der 9/11 Simulation
should be: mit vielen Fotos aus der 9/11-Simulation


These were the very last errors. Take your time with them, there is no hurry. And thanks again for implementing the German site!

Thank you animus! Whoops, about the box on the English-language site, it is more like I got confused. I certainly remember thinking I removed it. I will get to these ... eventually. I cannot explain how busy I've become lately. This is also why The Clues Chronicle Issue 24 is taking so long. I do apologize.

This page at nearlyfreespeech.net makes the process look fairly straightforward:
https://faq.nearlyfreespeech.net/sectio ... rtificates
How do I set up HTTPS (TLS) for my web site?

TLS is supported by default for the .nfshost.com name for all newly-created sites (e.g. example.nfshost.com), and can be enabled for older sites from the Site Information panel for that site in our member interface.

For custom aliases, such as http://www.example.com, you will need a key, a certificate, and (usually) a certificate chain. If you have these already, you can install them through the shell or the member interface, whichever you prefer.

If you don't already have a certificate provider, the most popular option is Let's Encrypt, a free service. The easiest way to use Let's Encrypt certificates is to type the following command in the shell:

YourPrompt> tls-setup.sh

In most cases, that will set up everything related to TLS for your site using Let's Encrypt certificates, including automatic renewal.

This script handles the simplest, most common cases. If your site uses custom web daemons or custom access controls, the automatic scripts may not work for you. For such cases, we provide the dehydrated ACME client; it provides hooks to install and clean up challenges that you can use to interface with whatever you're doing.

If you would rather have us take care of everything, we can also provide managed installation of Comodo PositiveSSL DV certificates for a small fee.


After attempting this free SSL set up a couple times, I hung the system. There is an alternative called Dehydrated, as listed above, but couldn't make heads or tails of it.

@hoi: You've got mail.



Thank you animus. I did my best to scrub those posts and, where your links still exist, used them. I will have more time for editing later.

Yes, Fakeologist has proudly done this for us, as a courtesy. He has posted the torrents on his site. I'll bet if you dropped into Discord to say 'hi' you could ask where that link is. B)

Alright, animus, I think I finally got to most of the text errors you mentioned. However, I could not see what exactly this error refers to based on your categorization style. Can you please provide a direct link to the problem page? :unsure:

Great, thanks! Here is the link: http://terror.septemberclues.info/faq-de.htm
The error is in the second paragraph on that page.

And don't forget the German box on the English site. ;)

edit:
Another thing: On the English site you have two paypal donate buttons. The first one leads to an English paypal page set in Euros, the second to a Italian one set on dollars.
On the German site, there is the Italian one set in dollars. Could you change it to the other donate button? I for one find it more convenient to read in English and donate in Euros.

Dear Animus,

I've been trying to reach you by e-mail - but my e-mails to you keep bouncing back (as if your e-mail addy doesn't exist anymore).

Could you please send me an e-mail from your current, working e-mail account? Thanks ! :)

Dear Simon and Hoi,

I hope this message finds you doing well in the New Year. I would like to continue my audit on the ISS thread, replacing old links with new ones where I can find them. I realize that we now have limits with photobucket :angry: so, moving forward I will be replacing all images with a different host (recommendations appreciated).

Before I continue, however, I noticed that my previous post with all of the updates up to page 39 were not implemented. Do you plan on updating those posts? This can be time consuming, so I just want to make sure it's worth the effort and that my updates will be implemented on the site.

Thanks in advance.

Rest assured, we really very much appreciate your efforts. I have noted them here: viewtopic.php?p=2403641#p2403641

I will be happy to attend to the latest changes listed here by you (and those by animus too). Please just give me a little more time. As you know, it is also time consuming to go about the process of replacing/modifying things and I have several other projects with deadlines. I am delighted that you are willing to take on this community-minded effort.

As for replacement hosts, post the link location of the picture and I will be happy to clone the pictures right here onto CluesForum.info and list the original source. This will be more secure than other methods for the time being. Of course, I don't think any image host can be relied in to protect exponentially increasing files representing free speech. If it did, they would be the most popular web site in the world.

I've gotten through to a "Page 30" stopping point while doing anonjedi2's scrub of the ISS thread.

That's all the time I have for this right now. I will continue the corrections later. Thank you for your patience.

Remember, if anyone wants to use HTTRACK to download the entire site and upload it as a torrent, all you need is to make sure you have several tens of gigs of disk space, run the program and walk away from the computer while it makes an archive of CluesForum.info

This will often allow us to go back and get images from that archive that are otherwise lost to the Internet Langoliers.
