Stuff from the STM32duino forum and WiKi

Post by Vassilis » Wed Aug 21, 2019 2:56 pm

As the title says, the following website is a partial copy of the stm32duino.com forum. It covers the most topics from the old forum.

The old stm32duino.com forum is now archived (thanks @PeteS)
stm32duinoforum.com

mrburnette has added a lot of information (thanks @Ray)

As of quite recently, it's been put in a sub section of that site, at https://stm32duinoforum.com/forum/

To keep the link short, I didn't include the "forum" word. If you click on the link you will see the full link to the site

So you did. I didn't click it - I just read it literally, and it's not immediately obvious how to get to it from his home page, so I thought that would be a problem.

Is it a problem that the link for Ray's bit has a sid value in the arguments? I assume it's expired, so clicking it doesn't log me in as you :) I sometimes see that on php sites, but I'm never sure of the consequences.

You're welcome, Vassilis.

It's nice to think my nit picking can be of use, sometimes :)

Thanks guys!
Hopefully a 98% restoration will be successful!!
PS: the most links ie. in the Projects are broken, or do I something wrong?
PPS: Roger has promised to keep the stm32duino.com active in the read mode till April 2020, has not he?? :shock: :?

What I know is that Roger had that intention, but some one(s) started web-crawlers pulling the whole site. That created a huge bandwidth overload and Roger's hosting company took the site off-line.

Next, the domain name comes up for renewal next year and if Roger does not renew, then godaddy (I believe this is who is holding the domain) has this policy:
After the registrar's grace period, most domain names have a redemption period. This period can last from two weeks to 30 days, and, during this time, the current registrant can renew the domain name by paying a redemption fee along with the domain name's renewal fee.

If the current registrant does not renew or redeem the domain name, it might be auctioned. When a domain name is released to a public auction, you can participate and possibly capture the domain name by placing a bid on it.

If the domain name is not renewed, redeemed, or purchased through an auction, it is returned to its registry. The registry determines when the domain name is released again for registration. Once it's released, you can register the domain name through us.

Would it not be easier Roger will hand over the site to somebody here who is willing to run the site?
I doubt STM will pay him $$ for the site, moreover there is a lot of authors who contributed to the site's content heavily, thus there could be a legal issue too..

Roger explained the situation, during the discussion on github, here:

https://github.com/stm32duino/Arduino_C ... -522423866

It seems the GDPR makes handing it to someone else legally impossible, among other reasons.

The main legal issue is with people's personal details, stored in their user accounts, rather than with the readable content. That's also available, partly, via the "Wayback Machine", at archive.org, so reproducing the content has already been done, and presumably does not infringe copyright.

However, we do have the read-only archive of the old site, thanks to PeteS (aka Loud160, in that thread). It's incomplete, but there's still a lot of it. That's now here:

https://stm32duinoforum.com/forum/index_php.html

If you click a link, and find yourself back at that page, it's because the correct page is missing.

So, for background reading, that's a good place to start - but bear in mind that a lot of it is talking about the Maple / Maple Mini core, or Roger's derivation of it, after Leaflabs closed down. There are some differences between his core and the shiny new official ST core, though you'll probably work out fairly quickly what no longer applies.
