I just tried to get past the main OTR page and when I clicked on one of the letters I got the same message as I've had the last several tries in the last several days: "The search engine encountered the following error: Search engine returned invalid information or was unresponsive. We are working to resolve this issue. Thanks for your patience."


Ditto.
The links are working on the front page, but if I'm searching for something, you're pretty much out of luck.


It appears that the search engine is the problem. I have tried 10 random links from my website and they all worked ok. Some searches will work; for example, I did a search using OTRR as the search term and it came back with the OTRR stuff.

You're right it does some things, but not everything.

From the Internet Archive site:

Hi everyone,

Looks like we are looking at sometime next week as the time when things will be back to normal. Until then, you may experience problems searching, uploading, checking items in/out. You may want to delay posting anything new (or updating existing material) until next week.

Several machines are being repaired right now, so if you can't find content that you uploaded in the past, that's why. The particular machine your content is on is temporarily dc'd from the other servers.

Hang in there. The tech staff is working on it!

Ken

It sounds like they had a major mechanical problem that took awhile to isolate. Either that or a nasty hack.

But I notice a lot more of their downloads via links from other Websites are coming through now. Not to mention, if you search for a particular show or person and add "old-time radio" to it, you'll usually get to the Archive.org page it's on and it'll download decently enough, more often than not.

Today just now, everything seens to be working fine. In the past week or so I have not been able to use any of their search functions, but have had no problems with direct links. I figure they were just working on something. Kind of like a lane closing.

It's looking like it's just not there at all now.

I was just there last night.

For some reason their format has changed - for the worse, in my opinion. Downloading single episodes is not possible (or at least I haven't figured out how) You can download a zip file, but when I downloaded Suspense the dates were all wrong and jumbled.
