I’ve gone through the sidebar Directory on this blog, by hand. The whole list has been checked and repaired if needed. About a dozen links have now been sent to Archive.org, mostly old freebies pages, where you may or may not also find the freebie .ZIPs you’re looking for. The trick there is to start with an early date, and keep clicking through the dates until you find a capture in which the .ZIP files were also saved. As for the rest of my Directory, there should be no dead links for a while yet.
I’ve also updated some link descriptions on the Directory (e.g. the Smith Micro Poser forums are now “Official (Old)” while the Renderosity ones are “Official (New)” and fixed some versioning (e.g. “Reality 2.0” now “Reality (Open Source)”). If business names have changed these have also been swopped over.
My new Poser/DAZ Technical Search engine has also had another ten URLs indexed. It’s pretty fab and nearly 100% comprehensive now, enabling robust Google searches uncluttered by scams, spam and irrelevant results for Maya, Lightwave, Adobe etc, or forums for more general Python scripting. Sadly the old Runtime DNA forums don’t appear to have been archived online to be indexed, although Archive.org has bits of them hidden away.
Next on the list is to check and update the Web links on the Poser 11 scripts page.
