Post Wonder what the latest news on §ane's FTP is?

I was wondering whether it would be up again in the future...

Deiner avatar blows, S4murai. Why not ask ol' (in)Sane himself for the info, Marz. He's a very decent and helpful sort. Even though he DID kill his uber cool Dr. Who avatar

§ane hasn't posted on this board in a while. I hope he does return, we all want to know about the current status of his FTP.

It cost §ane a lot of money (From what I can gather) to run the FTP, maybe he's decided to save his money for something more important.

Also if you can't access his FTP, I'd say the current status is that it's ..... DOWN

I don't blame him for taking down the FTP

His ISP put a 3gb/month upload/download cap, so it must be harsh for him to continue running it

Who knows. Maybe he'll come back. Maybe he won't

Well, I find his presence here far more useful than just leeching from his ftp (which I don't do). Surely you have enough resources Marz what with emuchina, Godflesh, PE2000, EAB, etc. that you can live without one of your ftp sources being gone.

BTW: the reason your post above appears to have been edited was because I hit the Edit button (for mods) instead of Quote by accident and responded in your post. Once I realized what I did, I returned your message to its state and posted this one (so no conspiracy theories!)

Contact §ane by PM, I'm not sure he wants the address to be common knowledge because of his transfer limits/costs.

I have sent §ane many PMs but he seems to stop at the point where he's meant to reply to them! I haven't heard anything from him about the FTP for several days.... what could've happened? I mean, I've seen him come out frequently to talk to you guys.... so why doesn't he have anything to say to me?

I think he has had to shut down the server due to costs.

Quit bugging him about it. He has his reasons. He has no obligation to put it back up

If he ever wants it serving again, then it's up to him

Well, he did reply to me...

...he said that the server was offline, and that because of this another AEN uploads server has been made. He gave me a URL to a message on the AEN message board which gave the URL of the new uploads server.

Agree

§ane is a cool guy and as Twistin' said there are the numerous AEN FTP's for you to use (Which have most, if not all §ane's stuff anyway), Emu-China and PE2000. Lets not forget what §ane has given us, first WinUAE with Kalliera support (Which I think no-one uses) and WinUAE-AVI, much more use than an FTP of stuff you can find elsewhere with a little effort
