ftp.pigwa.net needs your help

Recommended Posts

I would like to mirror your site , I have a Mega account with one Terabyte that has been maintained for over 5 years and at present has an Atari section of over 220 GB. Russ

Me too - I have a gigabit fiber connection, and a 64TB server with plenty of space on it yet :) 

 

Happy to trickle it in, if that helps your bandwidth, and happy to set it up as {ftp,http}.us.pigwa.net if you want ?

 

 

[edit]

Ok, mirroring has begun, and it's slowly trickling in (bandwidth-limited on the fetching side, and with delays between fetches as well). I don't want to put any strain on the source :)

 

As things come in, this'll get more useful, but the site is now up at http://atari-archive.net/

Mirrors make the most sense out of any archive anymore.  The more mirrors the merrier.  Seems to work for textfiles.com.  Also having a group of librarians would also go a long way with curating an official archive @ Internet Archive and the mirrors.

I am on the internet archive , and being  alibrarian sounds good to me , a new project is right up my alley , do you have tools for cataloging everything and getting descriptions of what is there ????

 

I would be willing to do that... also mirror the site .... I will give you access to my site there is a lot there...

As long as they are automatic mirrors, otherwise they are just out of date copies of an ftp site. 

 

@rcamp48 Mega is not a good place to archive your data, Kim Dotcom has already lost one file sharing site and the users lost all their data when he did. His prosecution is still ongoing and Mega is likely to disappear. Use it for sharing data with others but don't trust it, make sure you have a copy somewhere else too.

If someone can do so please back up my site to another area, before I loose it all, there is a lot of data there over 225 GIGs worth and all valuable, I will try myself, is Dropbox OK ?

If so I will switch to Dropbox business account

I'd use "C:\" or some other local drive.

 

If you really need it all to be online, use somewhere that you pay for, if you want it to be around for as long as you keep paying, use a company you know the name of (Google, Microsoft, Apple, Dropbox etc.). If you value your privacy, don't store your files with companies that hand over data to people without a court order (Google, Microsoft, Apple, Dropbox etc.). 

 

I've looked through your files and it's almost entirely stuff that is publicly available from other sources mostly Archive.org or Pigwa. Consider only sharing the stuff that is actually yours or ripped by you and just keep links to the other places that already have the rest.

I wouldn't panic, the Megaupload case has been going on for 12 years now and they still haven't extradited Kim Dotcom to the USA to stand trial yet. Mega.nz is going to be there for a while yet, just don't expect it to last forever.

Hello all you guys. Unfortunately I'm still ill. Quite badly. Anyway - in short. All mirrors are welcome but please contact me (email) first. For obvious reasons rsync is recommended, not ftp/http copy (to have file synchronized not copied). Moreover ftp mirroring lacks of few additional data like symlinks, which are quite common in our archive.

So... my point is - please contact me via email. I'll answer as soon as my health get better.
