Swiki.net has always had reliability problems. At one point it was down for
several days and I was ready to move the content to mini.net. But since
that long outage reliability has improved.
The main advantage of Swiki.net is that it supports file uploads, which is a
help to casual net users who don't have online storage. The main advantage
to mini.net is stability, as Jean-Claude backs it. Swiki.net is a free
service by a for-profit company, and could disappear without notice.
Jean-Claude and I have discussed some upgrades to the mini.net wiki,
including addition of a file area. Until that is worked out, we'll have to
continue with two wiki's. I don't think it's so difficult to move the
content later on, so I recommend to use whichever feels comfortable.
