What happened to the direct download dir?

Sun Sep 19, 2021 11:55 pm

Hi!

I'm a fan of the old days, when Internet was simple and had almost no layout.
Therefore I've enjoyed this direct download dir very much:

https://www.raspberrypi.org/magpi-issues/

But now the last couple of days this link renders a kind of decent looking error page, saying:
"WE ARE CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING HIGH TRAFFIC.WE'LL BE BACK SHORTLY."

So, I'm worried. Is this option now removed?
Or is this just temporary and we can expect it to come back?

Anyways.. Thanks for a great magazine!

You can't have been enjoying anything new as that directory hadn't been updated since 2019. The last MagPi issue on there was #86 and we're on #109 now. Somebody must have tidied the webserver in the last few weeks.

The "new" system stores those PDFs on a seperate object storage server so there is no link to a single folder holding them all.
