Sort out useful information
Will things such as images and photoshop files be available for separate download, my computer wouldn't be able to handle that big of a download and I'm really only interested in that stuff.
How do you plan to break up what you have?
Also, would an ftp be an option for hosting the files?
Surely you jest, FTP 45GB would be suicide to the site as far as bandwidth.
It will be in 4gb chunks made as isos, with custom labels hopefully.
People can DL, burn and then have the total collection on hand.
As some people have mentioned, they do not have room for all the content
at once. Everyone has a 50 pack of dvd which is less than $12 now these days.
I will group it together by content and let people pick apart each disc of content so we get the most out of it.
Things like textures can be released immediately, but things like
dreamcast source need to be trickled out so people can examine and
I have a dedicated seedbox that can upload torrents at a pretty decent speed. If you are interested, let me know
EDIT: The seedbox is from seedunlimited.com, so I have unlimited bandwidth
I've known ynh for a while, for what it's worth coming from me (being a newish person to this forum), he's legit.
Torrent is definitely the best distribution method for content of this magnitude.
I don't know, I'm wary of torrents...
I can give assembler the FTP info and he can upload it himself.
It's by far the best way (and only way IMO)
:shrug: I've never used one.
its simple you download utorrent then you go to a torrent site like the pirate bay and search for what you want download a link file
open it with utorrent and boom your off and downloading
Really wish I didn't have to install stuff on my PC...
uTorrent is a single 320KB executable, it's not gonna destroy your computer
there is a portable version so yah no install needed
My offer still stands ASSEMbler.
I know I've only got (three) posts by this point, but I'd still like to contribute my use of my seedbox if you need it.
password protect and newsgroups
You want to download 42GB but you're scared of a tiny executable to do so? What planet are you from?
Torrent is the only distribution method that makes sense. I'd say that turning the data into isos is something that should be done later - just make each folder into a 7z archive to save as much space as possible and then let people sort through them one at a time. The main concern with turning data into 4.5GB iso files is that if someone wants (just as an example) a 2MB PDF they have to download the whole 4.5GB to get it. That doesn't make sense - it's a waste of time and bandwidth.
No. No newsgroups. it's not 1989 again!
torrent is the best way to go IMHO.
I just dropped a 2TB hdd in this machine and have 1.28TB free atm, thus plenty of space to store it several times over. My connection can only manage about 110kb/s upload for eternity though.
