I downloaded and backed it up on my Dropbox and Box account for extra redundancy.

Thanks for doing that. Would it be possible to see, say, the last 10 0ths to be taken (including dates)? I'm just curious. I'd also be interested in seeing some kind of chart (similar to Hendor and Seifer's) that tracks highscore activity over time. (how many new 0ths in a given day, week, and month, etc.)

Edit: Zapkt, do you think you can combine and organise the two archives to merge with Eddy's previous compilation?

Huh, it seems I ended up uploading the wrong file, you don't need to keep this (see below).

Done: http://ploudseeker.com:5000/latest0th
As you can see it's pretty inactive nowadays.

That would be highly inaccurate as the number of files we have per year vary wildly. We would miss plenty of "temporary" scores.

Done, on the appropriate topic: http://forum.droni.es/viewtopic.php?f=2 ... 79#p176979

Hi all,

The archive website has been down for a few months now. It's a bit of work to debug why the application crashes and update the code to run on modern software versions. I'm not sure there's any point to work on this if it is barely used. Please leave a message here if you want this back.

I tried to access it recently to update my collection of highscore files, since I last updated it in mid-2017. However, you're absolutely right in that the activity is so low now that it's probably not worth it to go through the trouble of revising the code. If you still keep the files, could you zip them and upload them? I can see the last pack you published is from 2018 (https://ploudseeker.com/files/docs/2018 ... s_files.7z).

Sure, here are the latest files: https://ploudseeker.com/files/docs/2020 ... s_files.7z

I ended up trying to put it back online all day, but I think it's really not working because of a bug in one of the libraries I'm using. I'm planning to move this server to a new machine soon, so I'll see if more recent software versions fix the bug by then. Anyway, at least now it's working with python3.

I see that highscores are actually not completely dead! It seems the lockdown has inspired some people.

A lockdown, you say?

Thanks zapkt, downloaded ;) Also yeah, as can be inferred from ska's post, he organized a highscoring contest across different versions of N, valuing N highscores the most, and this brought some activity back to N.
