Archive Team, that ruthless band of site-saving scalliwags, has been working like crazy on a new downloading project, and we really, really need your help.
Friendster, one of the first social sites that took off in a big way until being overtaken by other services, has been bought out by a company that intends to convert it into some sort of entertainment site. To that end, they’ve announced that on May 31st, they’re deleting all user content on their 124 million accounts. 124 million!
We’ve constructed software to go in, guns blazing, and pull out photos, blogs, notes and anything else within reach for each of these accounts. It’s going swimmingly, millions of accounts will be archived, but at current rates we’ll be lucky to get ten percent of the accounts. We could really use some volunteers to help.
If you have a unix/linux variant, a couple hundred gigs of disk space free, and bandwidth you don’t mind donating to a good cause, please come to #archiveteam on the IRC Channel EFNet and let us know you want to help.
Everything works – we just need more help.
