IMCs with temporary solution

IMCs in need of help

Other affected sites

  • keys.indymedia.org: still down (this is only public keys, obviously)
  • radio.uk1.indymedia.org: down
  • Germany: all pictures and media are unavailable. New mirror for ~ 2GB of Media und Images needed

according to Jebba's blog:

  • www.blagblagblag.org - Linux Distro, will be back up around Tuesday
  • www.foref.org - For Refugees (inactive?)
  • syndicate.org.uk - only used for mail forwarding for MaQui and me but i lost about 80 sent mails AndiE.
  • indymail.org - Test/brainstorm webmail server
  • agnud.org - Linux distro – don’t know what happened to it (inactive?)

For around 4 years AHIMSA mirrored a number of Free Software projects. It was the main mirror for KDE (download.kde.org ???), mirrored php.net, kernel.org, Linux Documentation Project, apache, cpan, and probably a couple others. smile As the various Free Software projects developed more mirrors, the AHIMSA mirrors were removed to make space for Indymedia & BLAG.

Imc-UK server admins have done a quick calculation and the loss of Ahimsa means that the FBI action deprived the network of about 1 million pieces of content. Much of this is now back online from backups, but some of the sites have lost a lot of content. We are compiling a list now, please add as you find out more:

Data loss

  • Italy: multimedia files between apr 12 and oct 7; {Italy imc won't restore its archives until this situation is solved (alice for italy imc)}
  • Marseille: all data since latest backup on October 5, 2004 (attempts to recover articles from google's cache RemjeyPumpingScript)
  • Nantes: media files from 07-31 to 10-05
  • Uruguay: just DB from 10-05 and all media files.
  • Nice: one month data {actually live with backup of 02 sept 2004}
  • Western Mass: content from October 5 to 7
  • Wvl: multimedia files between apr 12 and oct 7; database between 5 & 7 okt.

  • Galiza: IMC collective decided to priorize start open publishing and restoring data later. Restoring data will be done using the latest backup (20041005) starting with media, then features, then newswire. As a migration2MIR was in progress in the moment that the seizure happens, we will reflect the current status in the migration status twiki page: http://docs.indymedia.org/view/Local/MigracionMIR
