The Fileball.net site and FTP are not working. It appears that the domain has expired. Does anyone have contact with the site owners? That is a lot of classic Marathon files which should be preserved and not forgotten.

It's alright, everything is mirrored at fileball.bungie.org now. Right?

ach, that's a real shame. First the new one get's deleted, and now the old domain goes down. Well, assuming that it's just the domain, if we can find the IP everyone can still connect. Plus there's a few of the DVD archive copies still floating about so those files aren't completely lost if the hosting has lapsed as well.

Someone remind me next summer when I'm in Iceland to pack my Fileball DVD's with me to Sweden given the fact that I got an unlimited 100mb connection (download and upload) here.

Nice! TL says he has a DVD too, so let's hope for the best.

There's a torrent there too with the whole thing. Please get it and help seed.

I've got about a third of it downloaded to my HD, and I'll keep seeding for a while now.
Edit: Actually, my DL's been pretty good for the most part but seeding isn't going above a few kB/s. Either nobody else is downloading or I just changed the wrong setting for something.
Double edit: Seeding has picked up. ok...

FTP is still up here or here, in case anyone's looking for something in particular.

I'm hoping to seed for a couple of weeks, usually between 8:00 - 23:00 GMT. I might have a cap on my upload so I might limit it at one point if needed.

I uploaded the extracted .tar to http://rising-studios.com/Marathon/filebal...ball%20Archive/ just in case anybody needs specific files (for whatever reason).

They are available at the URL I linked, too. I guess that wasn't clear :)

More mirrors are always a good thing though!

Here's a really ugly page for anyone that wants to browse the files and see the descriptions.

It really isn't that ugly. I do like the background color, which I think is teal or a very light blue? Thank you!

Excellent. Now we just need one more person with a different website to have files split up by author, and it'll be officially ridiculous.

This one gets my votes as it doesn't pagenize (sic?) the content so I am able to easily search the Fileball and get ashamed of my ancient maps. :S

That's a good point. I'll change mine so it shows 500 or 1000 results per page instead of 50 to make searching more convenient. I'll also try to make it so you can just click your name to see your files. Of course, hopefully the crapiness of this site will inspire someone to make something real.

Done. There are a total of 5 pages now, and a page that just lists all of the authors with multiple submissions. You can search for people that way, or click their name when browsing files. I also stole Hopper's CSS. I'm probably done screwing with this now.
