Hmmmm, okay, while I'm leaving the other torrent in seed mode, I can download a popular MAME torrent and use it to get my seed ratio up, will that work?

I've set higher priority towards seeding over d/ling too, that's good also?

Great, they have all the Tosec stuff... but you need to download full sets, many GB's! With a 1:1 ratio how should one upload that much? I'm "late to the party!"
Does anyone know other sources with Tosec updates with only the latest additions?

Thanks ant512!

Your server went down last night when I was in the middle of a download ("don't be surprised if the server suddenly vanishes" - I wasn't surprised ), but today everything is working nicely. I found a couple good things.

Not sure what happened there - the computer has been running for the past few days without reboots. Might be that the IP address changed - I've got a dynamic IP and a DynDNS client, but if the address changes it can take a few minutes before the DNS updates.

Thanks for letting me know, though - I'll keep an eye on it. Glad you found something useful!

FTP currently down. Windows on the FTP box refuses to connect to my network when it's in the spare room (either wirelessly or via a standard network connection); when I move it into the computer room and connect up a monitor, it does connect to the network, but only when I log into Windows. If I set the computer up to log in automatically and move it back into the spare room, it still does not connect to the network. If I give the box a dynamic IP, it seems to connect to the network more quickly; however, my router does not assign IPs via MAC address, so this is not an option.

It was working fine this morning. Words cannot express my loathing for Windows. I'd switch the whole thing to Ubuntu but I need SQL Server 2005 and .NET 2.0. Maybe I could just stick those in a VMWare virtual machine...

Now that is a statement I agree with so much, it could have been peeled directly out of my brain.

I appreciate your effort in getting the FTP up. If it wasn't for your FTP, I wouldn't have MacOS 8 on my A500 right now. (see screenshot: http://www.amiga.org/modules/myalbum...lid=2550&cid=1 )

Ahh, good stuff! I thought it was a bit too big to put in the Zone, so the FTP was my compromise. The Classic Mac versions of the Monkey Island games are on the HDF somewhere, they're pretty good.

No, they're not on the HDF. The HDF only contains a basic OS8.1 installation. If you mean the Mac zip file, that thing is 387Mb! It would take me about 60 hours of straight download time.

Even if they were on the HDF, it's no good for me - they require a minimum of 256 colours.

OK, it's back up again. It went up earlier, but I was running it in the computer room whilst I went out, and had to move it back to the spare room just (apologies to whoever was 17MB through a 300MB-odd download when I switched it off; hope your FTP client supports resuming!). Anyway, the IP problems may be related to my router rather than Windows, so I'm still keeping an eye on it and can't guarantee that it won't flake out half way through a download.

Had a go at running an Ubuntu live CD on it to check hardware compatibilty, but the ancient CD-ROM drive in the computer won't read it. Bah.

@mr_a500 - Yeah, but it's a good zip file. Two Monkey games, Doom, Doom 2, Netscape, IE; think Word's on it too.

And down. Bastard Windows.

You don't have to see who does that. Just PM me account, and you'll know who does it.
