• Notice of Site Cleanup

    October 7, 2020

    Blog

    Recently I came across a broken link in one of my articles. I then found a Broken Link Checker tool for WordPress and ran it. The results left me speechless. After running for over 48 hours, the tool found almost 7,000 broken links. Most of the broken links are for images put on a server that must no longer exist. I have fixed almost 3,000 missing images and other broken links. There are still almost 4,000 missing images left to fix. Almost all the missing images are for old articles for products that Citrix and Microsoft no longer offer or support. I have decided that I don’t want to spend the days it will take to replace all the missing images in the articles for dead products.

    All articles related to the following products are in the process of removal from my site. If you are still using these products, you probably don’t need these articles. If you need these articles, I still have almost every article in Word format. Email me, and I will send you the Word doc if I have it.

    • Citrix Secure Gateway, all versions
    • Old ICA Clients
    • Old Java versions
    • Old NetScaler versions
    • Provisioning Services 5.x
    • Web Interface, all versions
    • Windows Server 2003
    • Windows Server 2008
    • XenApp 5 for Windows Server 2003
    • XenApp 5 for Windows Server 2008
    • XenApp 6.x
    • XenDesktop 4.x
    • XenDesktop 5.x
    • XenServer 5.x

    Maybe this cleanup will help keep my hosting costs from increasing and simplify the backups my hosting provider takes frequently.

    69 articles were removed.

    This cleanup DOES NOT include ANY scripts or scripting related articles.
