Darn... VCL lost a server~
[ http://vcl.ctrl-c.liu.se/vclforum/showthread.php3?s=&threadid=15122 ]

A very large furry archive that I've never really explored (only noticed this because I was checking up on a story that I've been reading, originally named "Trouble's tales" (current name won't be posted unless people ask, since I'm leaving this post public)) has lost it's Sweden server(s)/site. Kinda sad, but understandable, since it was a university that was hosting it~ and thus, as the moderator said, "It's likely more a 'cover one's ass' move than anything else, and I don't begrudge them their decision.:

Yep, I noticed that the other night.. first clue was when I went to check out Charon2's page there, and came up with a "this artist is no longer hosted by VCL Sweden" error/redirection page. Still, as Ch'marr notes, it's been very generous indeed of the University to offer such bandwidth for so long - and, perusing the Coralised links instead does seem to work very well. Hopefully it won't put undue stress on said distributed cache network, given the significant bandwidth VCL goes through (average of 5Mbps!)..
