  • If anonymous users want to download faster, we have a google drive link:
  • You can register an account, previously called an "upload account", to get access to full speed and upload rights, but...
  • Registered accounts are limited to 50GB/week download.
  • To register an account, you must have an EAB Forum account that has at least 15 forum posts to its name. The last post must be no older than 5 days old.
  • If you already have an "upload account" from earlier, you do not have to do anything.
  • The mirror is untouched right now. Up to DannyBoy if he wants to make changes =)
  • All "generic" limiters on the FTP server removed for better speeds with a high number of concurrent users.
  • Disabled ident lookup on the FTP server for faster logins!
Yes indeed, to re-iterate Akira's post...

Well done indeed Turran (and modrobert for the scripts). You've done a sterling job!!!

...I'm sure it's been a lot of work but you've provided a solution that should suit everyone i.e:

a) Given "real" EAB members great speeds / access and an easy way to create an FTP account; according to certain criteria.
b) Provided many alternative solutions for non-EAB members, *cough*, other leechers, and all without removing their ability to still access / download our content.
