Thanks! I think a lot of the old Traveller websites were hosted by Geocities, and disappeared when Geocities was shut down. Most of them would probably still be findable via the Internet Archive, though. Also, webrings in general seem to have disappeared from the web.

Also, all of the sector data and Orion OB1 Association articles are now up on the new site!

Now, the new Explorerbase site has its first new sector data: Ruupiin! There's more details at the site itself.

For those who don't already know (I had not written about it in this thread yet), there are now three write-ups/articles on Explorerbase alongside the sector data and Orion OB1 Association information - two ones from 2012 (History of the Etra, Lanthusandr) as well as a new one (Steaakh).

I've updated the data file for subsectors E and F of Hfiywitir Sector to fix some formatting errors and add header lines to make it fully functional T5 Column Delimited data. Though, it looks like Wordpress mangled the separator line by combining adjacent hyphens into long dashes, so anyone else who uses the data may need to fix that at their end.

Also, when I try to view the data with the TravellerMap poster maker, it seems to insist on trying to parse it as SEC data and throwing a bunch of errors, and I don't know how to change that.

I and inexorabletash were able to fix the problem, and working data has now been uploaded to Explorerbase.
