Hey all,
It's been a while for sure. Sorry, been busy w/ work & I'm getting ready to head off on vacation for almost two weeks, so don't expect any replies till I get back. Wink Anyway, I needed to post this. I got an unexpected notice from my great internet provider last week, that they'll be expecting to change my "home" internet account over to a "business" account here in the next couple of months because of the "extreme" usage of traffic going to/leaving my servers. Rolling Eyes I'm sorry, sure the servers stay busy @ times, but it's not like it's 24x7. I'm sure you can see where this is going. Sad Here in the near future, I'm going to have to shutdown the servers. I'm not going to pay for business account for my internet. I"m already paying over $250 a month for my cable/voip/internet. So, after vacation, I'll be posting another post, looking for volunteers to keep the "archive" alive. I'm currently hosting around 8-12 gigs of "NeXT/Rhapsody/OSX Server" stuff on my server. I'll be happy to make some DVD copies for whoever would like to host everything. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I'll be back in a couple of weeks of R&R. Take care.

I'll be glad to host the NeXT and related files in a few weeks once I have my webserver set up. I transfer hundreds of gigs a month on my comcast line with no issues, so I doubt I'll get any kind of notice any time soon Razz

I could host them... I have no upload limits, and my upload speed is very high (up to 50Mbps with some peers, 5Mbps with most of the Internet), however -- the service would be intermittent. It would probably suck.

I can also help, either with a torrent seed (as I currently do for the NeXT Videos) or some hosting space here at work. I have convinced the owner to allow me to host/seed for some open source / vintage computer projects at work, as long as it does not adversely affect day to day operations.

Currently, I'm making a backup of the server right now.
I'm considering burning it all to some DVDs, and then turning it into a torrent. Unfortunately, I will not be able to host the torrent, due to bandwith ussage issues with AT&T. Oh well...

If we could create a torrent so that we coul grab the files, it'd be useful. I could host the torrent and/or the files.

I only read this until now, sad to hear that your ISP is giving you trouble. I fully understand that you're not prepared to pay more that you already do for Internet access. We must somehow find a way to keep all this stuff online. I'm especially fond of the package archives which I try to contribute to.

I have access to good a Internet connection and I don't think that upstream traffic from my computers is a problem with my ISP. I also have a sun box (ultra 30) which could serve as a ftp/http box. How much storage space are we talking about, in total?

Of course it would be nice to host the archive on a box running next/openstep. I only have one box capable of running NeXT/OpenSTEP and I'm using it too heavily for building software so it's not a good idea to run anything else on it.

I run a small ISP and may be able to help in whole or in part.

Unfortunately, I am not really UNIX saavy though. I could put something on a windows box or put a donated box in one of our racks.

If somebody could give me the specs, I would be willing to help.

Just wondering how to get access to the MECCA iso. Not being pushy but just wanting to know the procedure for access. I know the maintainer is currently on vacation so I can wait, but I am really excited about this discovery, to bad I sold my Color Turbo so VM is my only way to fly.


cheers
