Hello Everyone (past and present),

Right what I want to talk to you guys about is the multi-hundred gigabyte blob of storage known as the Techious Archive. This archive, accumulated over a number of year consists of SourceTV replays and minecraft saves and TF2/CSS/etc. maps.

Last year I ran out of disk space, so I moved the majority of this onto mediafire, and now due to inactivity, this archive may be deleted. I hopefully have a bit of a work around (randomly downloading files), but the question I want to ask is what do you guys think should be done with the archive as really its everyones history in this.

What I think may be possible is either just randomly download and hope for the best, but it may be better to do something with this data. For SourceTV, we could possibly check which files still load, and try and render and autoupload to YouTube, or we do something else that makes use of the files. For the minecraft files, we have saves for the periodic snapshots we take, do we really need as deep snapshots that is taken or can we do with something a bit lower (daily or just one per map), possibly rendered.

On the just store front, there are a number of options but most of them cost money. Either we pay for online storage and then store this online, or we fund more storage in my home server for techious storage or we just hope for the best and randomly download files.

Any other ideas (or do I just destroy it), just say. Please reply, after all its our history I've been trying to maintain.

Not sure, it's a part of our History. Don't really want it to be deleted, but on the other Hand no one will watch it. One Thing we can do would be writing down cool/funny Stuff then put it together in a funny Movie/similar and be happy about that, delete the other Stuff.

In my opinion, it's up to Wynney. If there's something he wants to use for a frag movie, he can say keep or whatever. Otherwise I say delete it because it's probably useless data that nobody's going to ever use or want to look at.

Update!!!!!

I now have a nice python script to link mediafire and the Techious file database, it just needs to download files first (which will take time as I hit limits on how much I can download without filling in a captcha). So look at the download directory and see what we have! http://www.techious.com/downloads

Did we not have a backup of Minecraft world 1? Only I noticed that they seem to start from 2. :P

I think world1 was a world that was used just for checking the suitability of minecraft running on the Techious Server and as such there was no point keeping world1 and world2 was the first world that we built/really used.
