Hi folks, I'm so glad I found this place, I was really floundering, trying to get my next up and running.

I've found that the repositorys on the web are incomplete, or very slow. I'd like to donate 2 gigs or so of ftp server space so folks can find what they need quickly.

I hope I'm not overstepping my bounds here, just want to help, if somebody already knows of a fast, complete repository of next stuff, please let me know where it is, if not. I'd like to get one going.

What do you folks think?

-Patrick

Sweet .. easily can fit on a dvd. Is that the complete archive, as best as you know?

Would it be ok for me to mirror/snag the site using wget, or would it be better to use the original peak.org site? I promise to use a 30sec delay between gets to avoid hammering the site.

NO! IT IS MY DATA AND YOU CANNOT HAVE IT! HA HA!

Erm, I mean, sure, go ahead! The more copies the better!

As far as I know it is complete, but I don't actually know for sure.

Actually, it looks like the original peak is still up (though at next-ftp.peak.org).

Stupid question alert ... Does NS/OS even support the UDF format used on DVD'S? If not, can it work with a UDF filesystem with an iso "bridge", and will this give us only 8.3 filename support? Someone with a DVD drive hooked up to their NeXT systems please chime in.

I will still grab the data to have easier access to it, even if the disks can not be used directly in NS/OS.

So how much do the rest of the mirrors you have take up?

All the stuff under http://next.68k.org/ takes up about 15GB total.

So I guess the z80 archive is the biggest chunk then.

Wow, that's huge!

It would be nice indeed to have a 3-4 DVD set of those archives.

You guys know if there's a lot of "duplication" of folders/files in there?

Grabbed both to be sure, and after a quick analysis it appears that the original site does have more files than your copy. It also appears that you have added a few, or they have deleted some since you made your mirror. Still need to do a more thorough analysis to see if the differences are truly due to missing files, or just a change in directory structure or location.

Next I will run a compare against my funet.fi mirror to see what that looks like. At some point I hope to remove the dups between them and get just one "uber"repository locally.

nextchef-

Thanks for doing that! I've often wondered which archive was most complete. In fact, it may be that a new, combined archive would be more complete. I've got (the complete?) Berlin NeXT User Group (BeNG) archive in 3.9 GB on a single DVD I use in my cube with an internal DVD reader. However, I had to go to http://sounds.wa.com/additional.html to get 'sdformat' Version 2.0 which I used to format the whacky 520 byte per sector hard drive for my boot drive clone (see http://www.nextcomputers.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=372). The BeNG archive had Version 1.3, the Peak FTP site had Version 1.2. However, I don't know if the two earlier version on the archive sites would have worked just as well for my purpose.

Anyway, it would be great to have the difinitive archive that would include everything from the old archives and, perhaps, updates like sdformat Version 2.0 which isn't on the old archives.
