I am not a computer expert, but I know there are ways to archive files and mirror servers to ensure availability and minimize the risk of loss.

I have a webserver that I am willing to use to help keep things like the TWS files publicly available. However, I don't think it's worth creating a 'new' archive since there are already some archives out there. Would anyone be interested in discussing a form of community archive? Maybe a torrent swarm, file server, or common web-page would be a good community effort?

What do you guys think?

You can find my server at 166.62.32.246:23. Look forward to seeing you there!

(Still trying to get the domain name working right, but the IP address is solid!)

Always looking for feedback and improvement! Send me a PM with comments/suggestions, please!

Excellent! As soon as I figure out a few more settings on my server (that is, how to allow downloads/uploads) I'll get these hosted.

I'm thinking torrent would be a good medium, but I'm biased.

Other thoughts?

Since they are relatively small files, torrents aren't really necessary.

I have a portion of what Helix just posted on my site:

I am working on a files repository where user can upload files, like they used to be able to at GrimyTrader.com
