The Hobbes OS/2 server was ran by New Mexico State University for many years and was decommissioned April 15th 2024. The fact that there are more users getting retro machines back online to revisit their OS/2 days or new folks wanting to experience OS/2, 8-Bit Boyz is making the complete archive available to all.
