OK, so CD.TEXTFILES.COM is such a wild, insane success that I’m starting to think I need mirrors.
Right now, the data’s only in two locations, and I don’t like that. I’m going to make it three, shortly. With over 350gb of data in over 3.3 million files, it’s a lot of data.
But what data! Old games, programs, writings, lists… it’s an amazing collection, one of those investments that’s paid off for me a thousand times over.
There’s a pro-side: all this history is right there. And there’s a con-side: all sorts of scum-sucking sites directly hot-link to the cd.textfiles.com server, surrounding the links with advertisements.
And then there’s a huge pro-side again: it’s a library that essentially runs itself. I track down the data, and it just… goes up there.
I’m about to take delivery of over 300 CD-ROMs to add to it. It’s going to get really big.
Who wants to step in to mirror? It’s time.
