I ONCE WROTE A LONG TIME AGO IN ANOTHER THREAD ON THE SAME SUBJECT: > it's 425 MB big now and getting bigger. ha, how things change... archive update: my initial figures given in the other thread were off. here they are as of 5/18/01: total size: 1.72 gb text: ~13 mb for ~300 items; conversations/posts, guides, faqs - all the old ones, with many new or previously unreleased guides and info images: 536 mb for ~2100 items; cg portraits, gold disk portraits, arcade flyers, screenshots, alpha/beta shots, "people" section with snapshots of many of you fugly bastiges (send in more!) sound: 326 mb for ~230 items; arcade vf1/2/3 and sega saturn vf1/2/k soundtracks, vf3 on the vocal, midis, vf voice samples movies: 870 mb for ~310 items web: 17 mb of archived web pages with one more disk full of goodies from a contributor on its way, and some final additions and cleaning up, and it'll be ready for it's initial release. so, pretty soon now. howEVER.. i don't have the resources to meet the (even small) demand for this, so i suggest a chain distribution. i'll send a few copies out and then the people who recieve it can copy and send from there.
