As some of you may or not know is the INTENTIONAL loss of Several GB of data via theft of storage devices. Which in turn I am going to attempt to recover what I can. I stored entire gone,closed,unknown forgotten Q2 file,app,mod,map,image,Programs,Bots for YEARS. My redundant backups is what is gone.... So I am going to dump some Urls, Info here in hopes some of you may help do the same. In the least check out soem shit! (Yeah f**k the typo IDK!) From there (GOD willing) I will work on some things- possibly reverse recover YEARS of collection-AGAIN. Make the UL available on this very thread.
Anyone know of a good HIGH capacity Reliable and FREE file storage that I can share w/ anyone?
ADVICE:When looking for Quake stuff. You need to think outside the box. Always hit the LINKS section of each site. EVEN if the Quake site has no pics-buttons etc.. The Links still work. ALSO- you can look up a older archive and get the 88x31,photo,file you know is/was there. It works both ways! What I mean is just cause the image etc is missing DON'T mean it isn't in a earlier or later date either!
Fact: Just because the domain is gone. Don't mean the files are still not obtainable. I've used "dead" links and gotten a file before. The HOST still has it archived even though domain is gone.
Fact: Google and look for that image,file under google hacks like Index Of/ etc.
Now I must leave you here as his is only 1% of what I could put up but I'll pause here.
Fact: You can MAKE UP Quake site links and see if Wayback has it. quakequakequake.com is/was archived for example. quake this n that. OKAY..Im rambling now. PS- Share more archived links , files etc back!
Bumping this. Cue dramatic intro voice, "ina world, where the old internet has gone dark, a prince was promised with a blazing sword to turn back The Others." I feel like the sword part of the prophesy refers (reefers?) to Mary Jane and / or a joint, the internet archive is beyond the wall and The Others must be MOBA players / millenials.. When the winds of winter blow, the lone wolf dies while the Quake 2 community survives.
