Thread: It's Back...

    Default It's Back...

    If you have not ventured over to the XX since it seemingly went quite, it's back up.

    I suggest bookmarking the Tutorial page directly and skip the in your face ads for Xara products above the fold:

    I had need to go there a couple of days back, looking for a tutorial Garry P had done on stereograms and could no longer find it. In fact most of the site was down and just sent me to an archive. Gary kindly supplied me with an alternative link after I PM'ed him. Just tried searching for the same tut on the "new" XX version and it's not there. Magix Sanitation Department at work I assume

    Yes, I just tried to navigate to some free stuff and it sent me round in circles, I guess it is not ready for prime time yet:-(.

    I think this is a work in progress. I was able to follow the link to the Xara Xone archives and some of the links work and some don't. So my guess is some poor beleaguered sole is trying to rework all the links. And there were over 15 years to deal with.

    I hope that your'e right and this is a work in progress. There really should be links to archives all Xara Xone content, presently you can search by author but there is so much content they should add a keyword search. So for instance Egg could have selected Gary P as the author and input stereograms as a keyword and narrowed his search.

    And they should make it clear if they will be offering any new content in the future.

    What they have done is put a front end on the site and added in their tutorials from the Xara site. You can still get to the old areas on the site. Here are a couple of the different sections,

    The 15+ years of work I did seems to be gone now.

    Gary, I found a working part of the earlier years here: http://archive.xaraxone.com/html/tutorials.html.
    The http://archive.xaraxone.com/html/workbook.html still has failing links.

    Yeh Acorn I got there too but try and dig to follow a tutorial through. Or worse than that! look at Rik's Gallery and try and view it, ----> you just get the guff about the servers. It's all a mess! If I was any of the two Gary's I would be really rude to Xara all that work, all of the super resource, and that good will which has been put in, just left to what be unloved and unlinked, poor poor show.

    The .ZIP files seem to download so it is possible to recover from the fiasco. Perhaps it is a work in progress,
