I am sadly just an observer to this. I did at one point have multiple hundreds of disks, but they were for the vast majority cracked copies from the mid-eighties to begin with. Literally the other day I found out how terrible the condition of these disks now is - mouldy, damp and rotting. It was really disheartening, like losing a part of my childhood for ever; very dramatic but how I feel.
However, reading about this project and then thinking of my own experiences underlines to me how truly important your work is. I wish I could help and maybe I can set up a spare server to seed full time for a while. Nevertheless, I'd like to thank you for what you are all doing. It makes all the difference in the world to know I can get back at least some of what I lost and in doing so help others to do the same. I know I am not alone in voicing my appreciation for your work.
