What's the status on this? Malenko, were you able to distribute to some folks?

I'm not asking for it, I just want to make sure it doesn't get lost again! :cheers:

I'm sorry, I think I got lost between all the pancake and potato salad discussion! What does a simple guy like me has to do to get a copy of the disk?  :notworthy:

Lol.

The answer is that it seems unlikely that "simple guys" like us will. We will be very low on the list (if on the list at all). But, it is being distributed to some of the long time active members to prevent it from being lost forever which is fantastic. Hopefully one day the contents will be available to the community.

I have detailed a purposed solution, but in the mean time we must wait for our forum overlords to decide our fate. ;) People are busy. Be patient.

Not a bad idea for someone that has had it by then - to make a few copies to bring with them for attendees that want a copy of it !  (figure they could reimburse for the HDD and buy the person bringing it a couple beers for their time  :dunno

I sent the original drive off, but I still have all the files so I can make additional drives.  The reason I sent the drive off to a moderator of these forums was to ensure the trail didn't end at stop #2.  I have nothing against newer members getting the art, I just want to be sure it gets into the hands of people I know will be sure to pass it along and not just sit on the drive. I am still going to make a few more drives and send them out, but my first objective was to get the original one back out into the rotation.

I probably will go through and pair down the art (there's a ton of dupes) for a separate torrent file.

Absolutely. I appreciate the effort from you and every involved in saving this important piece of arcade history!

Ok, throwing this out for the group -

The drive is a bare SATA drive. So, in order to use it, you need to either crack your computer open or get/buy a SATA to USB adapter. Also, I need to find a anti-static bag to put it in before ship it.

I have a spare 500 GB portable USB drive Iíd be willing to donate to the cause to make life easier for everyone. Itíd be simply plug and play instead of having to finagle other options. Itís also more ďshockproofĒ than the current option.

So what sez you peeps? Send out the USB drive to Opt2Not, or stick with the original?

Either way is fine by me. I have a SATA to USB adapter anyways so itís no hassle. But if you want to send me the USB drive, thatís fine too.

SATA has faster bus speed, so you can download it quicker, only hassle is you have to open up a computer case and find spare SATA data & power connectors

So would you like approx 2 million 8" flippy disks or would you like about 1.5 million Single sided 5.25"  we could possibly also put it back onto paper tape for you.
Seriously, we have people working at our place who were working with paper tape machines about 40 years ago, I'm sure they could do something for you, although it would probably be enough to get to the moon and back a few times :)
