    Thumbs up

    I know that the PL FTP has the space for the files. (It's not quite unlimited, but it's close!) If you don't mind maxing out your connection, it would be great to get the content uploaded to the one working FTP server we have left.

    Hello Adam,

    I don't mind "maxing out my connection", i have started a fiber project in my neighborhood, so all the 5000 homes in my neighborhood now have a 50/50Mbit internet connection.
    All the volunteers and myself got 100Mbit up/down for our efforts ;-) No limits, no extra pay, just almost 12Megabyte per second ;-)
    Just because i like to "max out my connection" i started this project ;-)

    OK i will start the upload now... It's 29.7GB
    I will call the directory ILDASWAP Mirror and keep the directory structure intact ok ?
    We can always later move stuff, but for now it's easy if people look for something that was on the old ILDASWAP FTP.

    EDIT 11.36PM (Dutch time)
    Ok, i made a directory called ILDASWAP Mirror and am uploading now.
    It's all the files that were on the ftp on the 12th of August 2009.
    Just 5141 files to go.... ;-)
    I get an average of 3 MByte per second up.... well ok it will get there eventually, i'll leave it running and will check in the morning...
    it seems like there is a cap of 1,5Mbyte for each connection. I have 2 threads running. Will check if i make it 5 threads that the speed goes up...

    Edit2: 11.46PM (Dutch Time)
    10 threads simultaneously now... goes lightning fast, already transferred 803 files !

    Edit 3: Added a picture Look at those upload speeds...
    If you add it all up , it's a total of 11,7MB/s mind you: that's MB not Mb !!!

    Just 81 files to go, it's the videos directory.
    So will take another 20 minutes and then all is there ;-)

    Will go to sleep now since it's almost 1am here and i need to get up at 7am.

    Hope you all enjoy the files, bye for now.

    Thumbs up 3 cheers for HobbyBob!

    Awesome work! Man, I envy you and your fiber connection at home! I'll probably be retired before I see fiber to my home.

    Thanks again for preserving (and uploading) all this data!

    Thanks Adam,

    I always received a lot of help from a lot of friendly people, this was my chance to do something back, although it be not very technical or really indepth laser knowledge.
    People always say i am crazy storing all this data ("You try to make a copy of the Internet?") and stuff and now it came to good use ;-)

    Hope everyone enjoys, all 5155 files where transferred succesfully, only 1 aborted the UKLEM3.5 mpg file of 2.2GB, i just restarted/resumed it, it will be ready in 3 minutes...

    Kind regards,
    Dimitri

    Thanks HobbyBob for all your time and help with this.

    I just received Quickshow this week and am in great need of some beam affect. I'm hoping to share back soon when I come across files that have not been shared.

    I'm not sure how to access the mirror though?

    Cheers,
    Matt

    The mirror is just a directory in the root of the PL ftp.
    So download a FTP client like filezilla, then install, and connect to PL Ftp
    User plftp, password ildaswap
    In the directory ILDASWAP Mirror you will find all the stuff, under Shows\Pangolin FB3 you will find some useful stuff ;-)
