trying again, failing still


In Topic: We are on the edge of the abyss... is it worth supporting the site to keep it...

With the very real possibility that Archive.org will be lost to people in the UK, and that may kill archive.org in the long run, it is imperative that this site be kept alive. I bring this up because I have been using archive.org's wayback machine to retrieve contents of old websites I ran and old pictures I have lost due to multiple hard drive failures in the past 3 years. here is a link to the OS/BMXSociety wayback machine:

https://web.archive....*/www.osbmx.com

 

This site here, above all others (including Vintage) is a treasure trove of info and history on BMX and must be preserved. I don't currently subscribe, due to a serious issue with keeping a balance in my bank or paypal,  but drop a chunk whenever I can. Those with predictable steady incomes should sub, and when I have an income to speak of, I will again.

 

Steve, give me the storage and bandwidth specs of what you need to keep this going, and I will research some possibly cheaper, lesser known providers.  What I lack currently in financial liquidity, I make up for in a good deal of time on my hands, and connections. Whatever I can do to help this situation, LMK. I have access to massive servers, I can have for free. Ever consider having someone private run the server for you? I no longer have a T1 line where I live, but that may be way cheaper than the other options. You would then only need to pay for your domain, the software I can probably get my hands on free to cheap, and the cost of whatever bandwidth the site needs. Maybe even do this as a fail-safe back up server, something akin to our own archive.org type thing, that I could probably do with materials and bandwidth I already have.

 

Anyone have any input on this? Any server admins out there have any suggestions? I have access to a lot of equipment and knowledge from friends in the industry, I just need to know the questions to ask and specs needed and maybe I can make something happen.
