Saluations! I'm a graphics artist and aspiring computer technician who's taking his trade on the road in a few years. I've already helped build douzens of computer for people, and aid regularly with troubleshooting. Soon I'll be decking out a van as a traveling workshop, and would like to be able to use vintage technology I find along the way.

One of the obstycles of using older tech is having the drivers to use them. Setting up a proper windows XP and Win98 machine isn't terribly problematic using laptop docking bays. What IS a bit more complex is having the drivers to utilize many older accessories. So I would like to use WinHTTrack to create an archive from the following link. https://www.vogonsdrivers.com/ My buisness Email is [Deleted], but PM can also be used if that's secure for a login and password to create my archive of device drivers. The admins can be assured I'll put those drivers to good use!

Sincerely,

Jordan Scherr

I just picked up a SIIG IO-1809 ISA controller from eBay, new old stock. Came with a manual so I took the time to scan it to PDF, please find it attached.

I would like to upload to Vogons Driver Library but I don't have permission. Could someone here please upload? I wasn't able to find this document online elsewhere. Thank you.

Merged to main thread.

SquallStrife is who you'll want to talk to, he's the lone admin of VOGONSDrivers. Sending a PM should be fine. Maybe you can work out something, but he usually doesn't grant login username/password if they aren't an established VOGONS community member. That said, you shouldn't need an account there just to download.

I just now attempted to send a private message. Apparently the system doesn't like new members either since it won't let me compose anything. It would be awesome if you can inform him of my request.
If he's wondering who I am, I'm a thirty-five year old graphics designer by formal education. My passion has always been for technology in general though, and I was a 90s kid growing up. So I've got plentiful memories of computer tech becoming mainstream. (My dad is a software engineer, so we always had the latest stuff.) So no, he wouldn't be giving password information to some overly curious twelve year old. I'm and actual computer enthusiast who's branching out into repair, and will be in a good situation to use old tech as I come across them.

Another trick is to quote him so he hopefully sees the notification.

So, since I'm the efn new guy, here's a google drive link to the contents of the FIC PA-2013 v2 CD, quite small.
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Td5bd … 2bs?usp=sharing

Thanks ! will add it to the Library. Wow yes it is smaller than I thought it would be !

Hate posting a reply and then have to edit it because it made no sense 😁 First computer was an IBM 3270 workstation with CGA monitor.

P.S. MS DOS is definitively on that retro list as well. It's just going to take a bit more work and learning setting up proper ISA slots. But I already have the laptop and means of accessing it's expansion bay. (The docking station for it is hideously expensive!)

Assuming SquallStrife agrees, if you're going to be using that much bandwidth (archiving the whole library), you may want to consider donating a small amount to help offset the hosting/bandwidth costs, if you are able . See http://vogonsdrivers.com/donate.php . This is just my two cents worth of a suggestion .

And done! $5.00 Australian dollars is what I can spare at this time. I'll pay a bit more when I can afford it if necessary.

I should also note that, once archived, updating will be a lot simpler. The program will compare and update any data that has either changed or been added. So the bulk of the downloading need only happen once.

Yes some stuff there would be good to add but if it all took up many Gigs of space not sure SquallStrife would approve since they are on two other sites already.

Pretty much.

Not until we have a better hosting situation anyway. 😉

I actually donated funds to the Driver Library site, and am willing to donate more if it would offset the bandwidth costs of my download/archive. It helps I only need to do the mass download once. What follows is upkeep and updates to the resulting archive.

Its not driver.. but it could get handy to others, there is my Windows 98 demos package, they are harder and harder to find, often slow to download - 175 games:

I appreciate your reaching out to me about this, rather than just jumping in and going for it. I also appreciate your generous donation, thank you so much!

The hesitations I have are these:

- If I say one person can mirror the site, then I can't say that I don't want anyone else mirroring the site, and then it's game over.
- If I say people can pay money to get some form of access, then I've broken the "no premium features or paywalls ever" promise I made when starting the site.

Donations are very much appreciated, as always, and they all go into a dedicated account that is used to pay the monthly hosting bill (and if that account is empty, then I pay from my own pocket).

I guess I can open up the question to the community, would you see it as acceptable to have a paid tier with, say, FTP access to the archive (in addition to the existing FTP upload system), or something along those lines?

The monthly fee would be something small, a few dollars, but there would need to be enough people onboard to make it viable for me to move to a dedicated host before these things would be possible.

What are your thoughts?

luckarusky: I might be able to work something out for you in the short term, and offer a better longer-term solution after an upgrade.

The consideration is appreciated. If such can be arranged, I'll make good use of the driver archive and make sure I have retro computers that can utilize them, and any hardware I come across.

What about something like this... You have people volunteer to set up ftp mirrors?

There would just need to be some sort of automation set up to keep stuff up to date.

I know I could do so with my connection and I am planning on setting up a larger ftp anyway.

I can't guarantee that download speeds will be super awesome from me since I only have a 50Mb/s upload speed and I would have to limit that some to keep everything like cloud backups and other stuff running smoothly on my end.

SquallStrife -- would it be cheaper for you to own a dedicated host and then you just rent the rack space? Not sure how that works as I have never looked into it. Guessing it may not be so great as then you would have to worry about maintenance on said host as well.
