    Okay I have a suggestion. How about a lower amount of data and you place the downloads as a legit torrent via vuze? The community can shoulder the burden of availability. This is exactly the kind of legal argument that is made for file-sharing software. A few magnetic links beats a legit download section on resources.

    Adding another $30 by a certain Felix M. on the record in case we ever set up some kind of patron status for donors.

    I like what you did with the place. I didn't think I'd live to see this place get such a huge upgrade.
    It looks like you killed my wonderful download section script somewhere in the process though. If you're not looking into getting rid of the old monstrosity, I can help get it running again.

    DU's got a guy somewhat working on it, but I expect you could get things back up & running faster, or at least help push it in that direction. Ping DU about it if you're game.

    Have we been live since January? My homepage was linked to the old URL so I had no idea!

    Yeah, that's why I'm glad they added a frontpage link to let people know the forums are up! Welcome back TDC.

    Good to be back, and good to see the original gangsters again.

    Good to see the download area is up and (mostly) running.
    Many thanks to those that made it so.
    If it's been up for a while, then I've been unobservant, but the thanks still apply.
    I tried to play the other day and noticed that I uninstalled Arcanum at some point in the past.
    I think I still have all the add-ons (patch, UAP, A:WIP, highres, etc), but if not it's good knowing I can still get them.
    Now if I can just remember the correct install order.

    Funny thing is, I have to memory of doing it.
    The short cuts and links are still there, but the directory is empty.

    It has already been a year since the forum transition - amazing! I feel as though it took place a week ago, time passes quickly.

    I'm extremely happy to see this site up doing again. Thanks for all of your hard work in the making of this site to keep it running. Anything that I can do to help just let me know. :)

    There's a little yellow button up top with the ads that says 'Donate'. That goes into a fund to help pay for site maintenance and hosting.

    Clicking on the ads also helps.

    Plus, if you're a wiz with XenForo and whatnot, the Elder Gods of the forum may have use for you.

    But what do I know. I'm just a lone pup wandering the grounds aimlessly.

    On page 2, yes. But we do also have the ongoing costs of licence and domain renewal every year, which are $60-70 IIRC, so any further donations will be used to pay for that.

    As promised, I have donated. My only regret is the exchange range is a stroodle but you should be saying hello to $30 (US).
