I got two announcements to make 🙂
First of all (to set some pressure on myself), I have a new (second) website in the making. Compared to this site, it will be times X larger and not limited to a single topic like this site is, but on old PC hardware of any kind. Right now, I am writing a lot of content for one big project that I want to have ready for the launch, which consists of several (extensive) reviews and a lot of benchmarks comparing the reviewed components. The site itself is about 80-90% final from a layout & function point of view and I am done with around 50-60% of the launch content I think. I work hard (in all the time I can spend on this) to make it happen this year, but I can’t promise anything. Stay tuned and bookmark my new site: https://www.retrohardware-reviews.de!
The second thing I want to mention, is that I have a Ko-Fi set up now. So if you want to support what I am doing, you can hit that “Buy me a coffee” button on the left. Any help is appreciated, I promise every cent goes into hardware and helps creating content (for the new site). Thanks in advance to your support 🙂
Today I discovered, that wordpress automatically overwrites changes that I made to my .htaccess file. I don’t know since when this happens, but I assume since the last WordPress Update. Whenever I replace the file with my working backup, it gets overwritten within 2 minutes. I think, I now have a working way to prevent wordpress from doing so, the fix can be found here (for anyone who is interested): https://perishablepress.com/stop-wordpress-changing-htaccess/
I hope the site will now work as intended, sorry again for this!
I am happy to announce a new Banshee that was added to the collection. It is the Axle Triple D, an extremely tiny card. You can take a look at it here: Axle Triple D Banshee
Hey guys, today I discovered that all pages except for the landing page showed a nasty “500 internal server error”. This is because I have customizations which get overwritten during wordpress updates and need to be redone after every update. I’m sorry that I didn’t notice this earlier, but now the site is up and running again 🙂
If this happens again, feel free to send me a mail to webmaster *at* 3dfx-banshee.de, then I will fix this issue as soon as possible.
I will also add a new Banshee very soon to the site, so stay tuned!
It is finally done! After months of work I can finally open this new place for all of you interested in 3dfx Banshee cards. I hope this site proves useful to fans of old hardware – I am excited to read your feedback!
