Hey what the hell happened to the achives? They were all catagorized and nice before, now its just FOLDER/1-29… How am I suppossed to find what I’m looking for?

I suppose a LOT of people are wondering the same question. Well, remember how i used to have a statement saying that i was intending on sorting and completely overhauling the archive? well I have got round to it and are putting together a team of members to help me. In each folder there are 111 files, this is how many each archive sorting admin will sort, 29 admins total. You can actually preview the new improved archive (even no sorting has barely started) at >>>>>>>>http://www.bombshock.com/archive/
have a look and see what you think. It is actually a database driven program which admins will be entering information about a file into the database and this databse links to the actual files… anyway check it out.. should be completely moved to this new system by dec 15th.. something to look foward to anyways……

Oh, ok. Is the site search engine going to integrate the archives?
—– Hey man, you got a great site, just wanted to say that again.

New look at../archive/ is very nice! Hey if you need any help I can since I have done so many other archives similar to that.
— Posted by Xpl0siv on 12:22 am on Nov. 19, 2001

everytime i go to the archives page and choose something it makes me put in my user name and password but after i do that it wont let me in what the hell is wrong? is it my browser or is it like a glitch?
— Posted by SOul M8kr on 10:48 pm on Nov. 22, 2001
Whenever I was admin I didn’t have that problem…
maybe its a glitch

The archives are being sorted and shit right now so they are shut down to most all members. They’ll be back open pretty soon. Hey, if any one wants to help sort files, contact Xpl0siv, I’m sure he needs the help.

Thanx for the info i’ll try to get in to the archives later
— Posted by ladieluver on 5:49 pm on Nov. 23, 2001
I almost forgot, whenever the archives are back up post sumthin bout it

I am actually going to be doing it all myself, i tried with about 5 admins and one person, who did not know what they were doing entered a whole lot of information incorrectly which threw a spanner in the works. I know many of the admins are very capable of helping out but i am a perfectionist and icant handle if it is not all right. This will mean it is gonner take a little longer, but as will all the projects i work on by myself, it will be the best it can be. In the mean time, you can browse the archives seeing what information will be available once the archives are online..
I have astimated that about 15% of files are either duplicates or are just absoloute unrelated crap. As i have been entering information the first two folders only contained 163 high quality files out of 222. This might appear bad, but in reality it is veruy good. imagine an archive with ONLY high quality, duplicate free, files. all catorgarized complete with descriptions and titles. That is better than a fucking mainstream site about some bullshit like “Windows help files” and its about how to blow shit up and lock pick and all the other shit which is on there (there is like 20 or so catorgarys now!). ohh well it should be available to the general bombshock community soon, in the mean time, stay tight.
PS: your bombshock username and password willll NOT work to read files, sorry, but untill work is finished, they will stay password protected. i still hope to have them all done by december 15th.

here’s a thought…….. since your still gettin th archives in order could you like allow acsess to the ones that are completed so we dont hafta sit and anticipate when they are all going to come back, like what i’m saying is, is like say your finished w/ the alchol archive, make that one so we can see it while you get the other archives in order and just make the ones that are done availble to us, does that make since or no….
— Posted by saurontheevil on 5:21 pm on Nov. 27, 2001
or maybe you could allow bombshock members access to the nodoze archives but just the archives
— Posted by Xpl0siv on 6:36 pm on Nov. 27, 2001
Hello, i can appreshiate you need to access the archives so urgently, but the 15th is not that far away… and also i have reached my limit for bandwidth in november and are probably going to be receiving a letter from my hosting company asking me to upgrade my account soon. sorry.
— Posted by saurontheevil on 1:45 pm on Nov. 29, 2001
does that mean that we wont have as much access?
— Posted by ladieluver on 6:28 pm on Nov. 29, 2001
when the archives get back up can we like make this page availible offline cause i’m getting my internet shut off so i was just wondering, i’d rather have your consent to do so than to just do it
— Posted by ladieluver on 8:08 pm on Dec. 15, 2001
are you done Xpl0siv? i wanna read the “50 fun things to do on a final” because my finals are on monday so whenever it gets done tell us on this thread peeez
— Posted by death the horned god on 1:19 pm on Dec. 17, 2001
its the 17th and the archives arent done yet, whats the deal ?
— Posted by Broken Linx on 10:17 am on Dec. 18, 2001
just be patient Xpl0siv said that he would put post up when the archives are open for use again, besides it takes a lot of time to find and organise through all the stuff that builds up… i had the same problem with my hard drive a few weeks ago.
— Posted by kent82 on 3:06 am on Jan. 4, 2002

hey you guys, i dont want to take any attention away from this wonderful site, but seeing as how the archives are down and all, i figured i’d do my fellow bombshockers (or whatever you’d call the collective group who visit this site…something like that) a favor and post the address of another site with useful anarchy-type info. Just search “Pyrocorp” on Yahoo! and then go to the group thing and sign up. It’ll give you access to some pretty cool files. Sorry to Xpl0siv if he doesnt want other sites being (i guess you could call it) advertised.
