2017/03/23: Server Upgrade - Stage 3.1 -> 3.2
Stage 3.1 of the upgrade is officially complete: data transfer to another hard drive (this was unprecendented, as the old RAID recently started having problems). Stage 3.2 is the (actual) hard drive RAID storage replacement.
The Tech Page!
It is unfinished. Some links do not work. The ones that do have html in its path. It is also in overhaul mode.
Skeleton Page of Files and Documents
This page lists previously unlisted files and directories that have been sitting on the server over the years. That, and stuff previously only listed on my Twitter account. The server in its original form was December 2005, but some files predate it by a few years.
~FTP Archives Section
FTP archives. Consists of the following:
ftp.abit.com.tw (archive.org and solaris17 forms) and solaris17 supplemental files (archive.org's secondary mirror of this Internet Archive page
and solaris17's much older secondary mirror of this server
; Forum Post
former ftp.compaq.com (and its supplemental SoftPaqs from HP's FTP server) [former ftp.compaq.com is a secondary mirror of this Internet Archive page
download.intel.com [secondary mirror of this Internet Archive page
former ftp.microsoft.com server; last archive date is February 3, 2015 [secondary mirror of this Internet Archive page

some old Turtle Beach leftover files, mainly sound card drivers and manuals; however, they were from someone else's archive I cannot remember where
Intel Legacy Files Archive
Intel is removing more of their old stuff again! This archive exists to (attempt to) catalog their vintage BIOSes, documentation, drivers, and utilities starting from the early 1990s. This is far from complete, and has some redundant files everywhere.
Roland SCD-15/SCB-55 Data Disk Images
Complete archive of data disk images containing Setup (3x disks), MIDI (1x disk), and Do-Re-Mix (1x disk). Originally supposed to be released in late March 2013, but I completely forgot (hence the zip file date discrepancy), then the site was unstable throughout until the router was replaced in December 2013.
Creative Sound Blaster AWE64 Gold Data CD and Disk Images
Archive of data images containing drivers (floppy), software (CD), install (floppy), and config manager (floppy) in English. Originally supposed to be released in early April 2013, but I completely forgot (hence the zip file date discrepancy), then the site was unstable throughout until the router was replaced in December 2013. [Update 2018/10/11: Since late May 2018, two OEM game releases from the AWE64 Gold package - Eradicator and Magic Carpet 2: The Netherworlds have been added to this directory!]
Crazy Drake (DOS) [20180812 Repack]
Repack of the Crazy Drake DOS release. Strange release, as it's an eGames release, but it likely stems from a scene release that has a timestamp of January 17, 1997.
Best of Windows Entertainment Pack (1997 Kellogg's Promo Disk Image)
This particular disk was found in mid-1999 and used extensively throughout the years. Even got the IHC header issue before I knew of proper disk storage. The disk was originally dumped in 2009/08/11 through rawwrite, and the original disk no longer works. Original OEM header for this disk is an MS-DOS 5.0 header, which is fixed. Any files that have had access date stamps are gone as well. Original release is May 23, 2018. Final release is October 10, 2018.
Lotus Write Release 2.0 Retail
The state of these disks are unfortunate. Write-enabled, used in Windows 95 and 98FE, one file was actually written to Disk 3 in January 1999... Disks were dumped in 2012/06/19 through rawwrite. Owned by the IHC issue. Original OEM header, if any, is unknown, so it is stripped out on these disk images. Any files that have had access date stamps are gone, and the data stored on Disk 3 is zeroed out using a hex editor. Original final release is May 23, 2018, second release is October 10, 2018, and final release is October 11, 2018 to confirm and fix the image for Disk 3 by using the hex byte F6 in place of hex address 00 where the old data was.
Monopoly Deluxe v1.0 (DOS Version)
Got these floppy disks from a now defunct retro game store in Canada over five years ago. These were owned by the IHC issue as well, but this time, it was not my doing. :) So, the OEM header is stripped as usual. Also, an original file was deleted on Disk 2, but I restored it using my old 486 machine and the UNDELETE command. Any access date stamps are gone (it was in 1996). Current release is October 10, 2018. There is also a patch to this version of the game: Monopoly Deluxe v1.0 to v1.5 Patch (DOS Version)
This is the original ZIP archive and filename of the patch.
