AOH is retiring.
AOH is closing April 15th. Our stuff is going to the TUCoPS site.
After 15 years of operation, the last few of which have seen artofhacking.com fall behind the rest of the internet in content and design, we have decided to close artofhacking.com.
Most of our text file archive - The Ultimate Collection of P/H Stuff (TUCoPS) was moved to its own site a couple of years ago, and our remaining content will be relocated there in the coming weeks.
Our final day of operation, before the domain redirects to TUCoPS, is April 15, 2015.
On the bright side, our parent site - Tommy's Holiday Camp BBS, which we started as a dialup BBS way back in 1987 - has returned as a fully-maintained, frequently updated and standards-compliant CMS!
While you will not lose access to the majority of our content, we have decided to close a few of our most problematic repositories - Game Sniper and Total Hardware, as well as the AOH Games and Felis Nox Adult Games mini-sites went largely unmaintained because they are very difficult to keep current. These features have been closed and will not return or migrate to our other sites.
Eventually, we hope to upgrade the TUCoPS, TAP/YIPL, Recipes and Drinks archive to the same fully searchable and interactive CMS system (Drupal) that we are using on our more modern sites.
Here is a list of the currently active sites in the AOH complex that will continue indefinitely:
- Open Sez Me - the site we spun off from the AOH Default Passwords area
- THC BBS - ruling the universe on-and-off since the Reagan era!
- fnAir - Remember when we used to sell the flight manual for the SR-71 spy plane on CD-ROM? Now we give it away, along with manuals for dozens more planes, for free! Get your flight simulator started up, we're going for a ride!
- TUCoPS - Our main text file archives, where most of the AOH content that hasn't already gone there will soon go.
- RCC - Historical service data (electronic schematics) for vintage radio spanning 1926 to the early 1950s
- The Gong - Our humour archives - plus a ton more jokes and a healthy serving of cheesecake - have migrated here and taken on new life! Flamingly heterosexual.
Thanks to everyone who supported AOH over the last 15 years, to our forum posters, our advertisers, our uploaders, and every one of AOH's 5 million visitors for making AOH a great site! See you on TUCoPS, THC, Open Sez Me and The Gong!
