Knowing Göran, I would think it is just a temporary problem. He was here earlier today, so he'll probably be able to give us an update soon.

I just tested http://goldrefiningwiki.com/mediawiki/index.php/Main_Page and it was working just fine for me. Is anyone else having a problem?

I'll check the status of my domain just in case... brb (be right back).

Edit : The domain had expired at the 25:th. Apparently I had a copy in my DNS that wasn't timed out yet. The domain is renewed so it should come alive again whenever any DNS cache times out and renews the information. It can take a couple of hours if you tried to access my wiki recently.

Sorry for the interruption.

Goran, thank you very much for worrying about our learning, I'm not in a hurry to continue studying Hoke, I still have a lot to learn from the forum, anyway thank you very much for your prompt response and interest.

HAPPY 2020.

If you don't have a printer, I'd suggest the screen readable version. You'll find a link in my signature line below.

I just downloaded it to my Kindle Fire using their Silk browser and it came right up on my screen. You have to give it permission to store the download, but after that it went right to displaying the book. Not sure what problem you might be having.

Let me start by thanking Noxx, Harold_V and Palladium. Thank you Noxx for creating this forum where priceless information is so freely shared. Thank you Harold for encouraging everyone to read Hoke's book. And thank you Palladium for making the digital version of her book available to us all. Without you three, this project would have never been possible. Also, special thanks to my wife, Reva, who obtained an original 1940 copy through an inter-library loan from The Vining Library at the West Virgina Institute of Technology.

I know many of us stretch our dollars as far as we can. Not everyone wants, or is able, to buy a hard copy of Hoke's book, but reading the digital copy can strain old eyes like mine. So I've created a more frugal, printer friendly version. This copy is reformatted to print 2 pages of the book on each side of an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of paper. By printing on both sides of the sheet the book can be printed on just under 100 sheets of paper. The sheets are then cut in half and make a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" book that can be put in a small 3 ring binder or other binding of your choice.

To Print the Book: The book is formatted to be printed on both sides of the sheet. If your printer can print on both sides, simply run it as a duplex job. Each odd numbered page is paired with the following even numbered page.

If your printer does not print on both sides, then first print out the odd pages. Put the printed pages back in the printer (make sure they will print in the correct order - I have to reverse the order to print the second sides on my printer) and print the even pages on the second sides. Since my printer seems to like to grab 2 sheets together at the most inopportune times, ruining the rest of the job, I just print out 10 or 20 pages at a time, flip them over, and print the second sides. If they feed right I move on to the next 10 or 20. If the printer screws up, I just have to reprint a few pages, then move on.

If anyone finds errors (I know there are bound to still be a few), ommissions, or problems please let me know and I'll make corrections and update the file here. I'll include the revision date in the file name so you'll be able to tell if you have the current version.

Enjoy!

Dave
thank you. an invaluable book.
