hey all

as some of you know I have been collecting puppies from the wild, places like the wayback machine and private hosts before they disappear with the hope of one day making my collection available to all

that day is here although the upload process is taking me far too long due to poor connection speeds, however, they will all go up eventually

the collection is being hosted by archive.org (the wayback machine) and should be perpetual

of the 183 files I've managed to upload to date there have been around 200 downloads so it's already working

this is brand new as of 10 minutes ago so it may take a day or two to get settled

I will also upload deltas and then pet collections in the future

if anybody near lincoln uk can provide temporary fast internet I would be grateful

That is WAY COOL.

In a couple days I may have a few to share as well, if you don't already have them.

I found the corepup derivative on the site.

I have more info: it was based off of Puppy 412 Barebones (by WolfPup) and remastered without extra themes using woofy-0.91!

I know because I created it, i just found my old thread with info related to it.

LOL :-\

500 GB is impressive!

Great Job! , you are to be commended , for this colossal effort!


Dream host , my current provider has awesome tubes(internet connection speed)

I used wget, for the current set of iso's and it only took about 5-7 mins granted it's not that big, 5 puppies at 200MB each, along with their md-5 hash sums

Even with all that awesome speed, i think I would get rather tired too!

But anyways, very Grateful for all your efforts.

it's people, like you that make puppy so awesome!

Sending much puppy love from my kennel to yours,

Saturn

I think that the first Puppy I played with was 0.95 or 0.98... And then I didn't get back to looking at it until about 4.11...

I may still have that old 0.9x ISO laying around...

excellent

3 more to the list.....

you can upload them yourself to the archive.org (you need to create a login) to the 'community' (hit upload and follow the instructions)

they can then be moved by the admin (@ archive) to the appropriate puppy page

if I'd known how long it would take before I started I may not have done it!

I'm really pleased that so many people have downloaded, makes it worthwhile.

I find it very sad that devs hard work can get lost in the ether and this was the best way I could contribute to the community
