Hi Mike,

Well, I have finished the preparation of the files. Finally, I have used BetterZip, instead of Split & Concat for that first task. Then, Split & Concat is good for join all the files in only one. And when I decompress the zip file obtained, it works. I have compared it with the original, they look identicals. I have used MD5 for that & I have also all the checksums now. That looks good I think. All the parts are 150 MB larger size max. I hope that will pass with my connection bandwidth. I'm gonna look for someone to help me now...

Cheers,
MacTouch

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your precious advices. I will look further to get the best result. I'm going to test some of these tools & make my choice, then. May be I will ask someone to help me (an admin of this site by the way). But, meanwhile, I need to test my capricious connection with this site, I think... Smile

Cheers,

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your straightforward answer.

How large is the file and in what form? e.g.; .zip, .rar, .sit, etc.;? I have noticed that your IP is dynamic, in that it changes often, even during the time you are logged in. This can cause large uploads to fail and may be a problem for you.

There are 5 files overall, but the first one is larger than 2 GiB. All of them are already zipped, but the contents are in .dmg format because there are files system inside & can be booted. Yeah, my IP is not static anymore, due to the lost of my last system connection for some problems. I think this is the real source of my problem, but may be there is a short disconnection in the Internet network occasionally.

You would perhaps have more chance of success if you were to use a file splitter to split an archive into smaller part files and save the upload page at the completion of each part. This way if the upload fails at some point, it would not be so troublesome to retry uploading a smaller portion of the archive. Anyway, I can help with suggestions as to file sizes and splitting if needed.

I was thinking about that. I know that mrdav use one of them & now Scott, but I'm not sure it is recommanded for some system disks. Also, I don't think uploading them splitted directly on the site & let them like that will be the suitable solution, except if someone can DL them, rebuild the files in one piece & upload them again into the page.

This is how we often make uploads of very large items here. Also by adding an temporary H2 notice at the top of the page description, informing all that uploads are on-going - don't touch the page. This is to let us know not to interfere with that page until all uploads are complete. As you can imagine (or perhaps already know) how annoying it can be to upload several hundred MG's and then being informed by the site that in the meantime someone else has edited your page, causing your upload to fail

That's what I used this to upload the desktop pictures from Snow Leopard through Mountain Lion. However, I encounter a fail with the first attempt with the biggest of them. The second tentative finished good fortunately for me. Besides, to avoid that someone interfere when creating the page, I have attempted to upload the file first before the page was created. But perhaps that's not the way to make it. Wink

Cheers,
MacTouch

Hi Mike,

Thanks for release my account. And my apologies for the inconveniences caused by me. I just tried to add a too big archive than my bandwidth can support. It's something missing here. I wanted to offer this quite rare gift just for acknowledge the wonderful job you are doing here in your free time, you & your comrades. Perhaps you have another solution for uploading the archive, without compromise the bandwidth here. May be another special website ? Just let me know, then.

Thanks again for your kindness,
MacTouch

You always have the option in the updater drop down menu to "download only".
That's how I archived the Tiger and Leopard updates.

The 10.6.8 combo update is still online.

I might be getting ANOTHER G4 iMac shortly, [...] Let me know if you are still interested...

Not a problem. The new iMac has MacOS 9.2.2 only, and installed a 400GB HDD as two 185GB partitions Smile

Hi Mike,
You're a site-admin, aren't you? What shall I do about Studio/32? It is made by EA. Slomacuser wants it up on the site. I don't mind putting up, I'm just not sure how wise it is (or if it is even allowed).
What do you think?
kind regards,
soudesune

p.s. On the Mac Format front, my MDD is set up, I have Acrobat 9 and I have issues 16 to 21 scanned in. I just have to get started...

themacmeister

I might be getting ANOTHER G4 iMac shortly, and it looks in pretty good nick (ie. an idiot like me has NOT drilled the screws on the base). If it is perfect, I'll swap the HDD/SUPERDRIVE and send it up to NSW (after finding a workable packing method). Let me know if you are still interested...

A bit on the ultra-sensitive side, but I get it due to the site's nature. The excuse that things should be kept private should be seen as ironic to anyone, however.

Thanks for the heads-up on the new alternate MacWrite Pro 1.5 download, MikeTomTom. Installed it as soon as I got home. Worked perfectly with Mini vMac 3.3.3, SSW 6.0.8 -- excellent!

LeoET

Thanks for uploading the second DL for the Adventure! DA I requested, MikeTomTom. Archive unwound using Stuffit Expander 4.01 and DA installed and running, no probs. Thanks for the quick response, too. Checked back a couple of days after my original post and there it was! Much appreciated.

Hi MikeTomTom

Thanks for the note about the max1zzz links. I emailed max1zzz about the access problem and it now seems to be fixed.

Hi Mike,

Issue 8 of MacFormat is up. I'm going to give the magazines a rest for a while and start on manuals for games. I've noticed that Civilization has no manual, for example.

all the best,
soudesune.

mrdav

Hi MikeTomTom. Yes, my email is current. Indeed, I got the Admin email notifying me of your Guestbook entry. Don't know what happened with your attempt to email me.

Issue 8 has arrived (yay) and with any luck, I'll be doing it next week. It even came with mounted floppies.

Hi Mike,

I noticed this myself when I was uploading the reviews. I was surprised that there was no page for MS FoxPro. I'm almost finished with this round of review-uploads — just issues 2 and 5 to go before I get teh scanning for issue 16 finished.

Hi Mike,
I got it into my head that 'MacFormat' was wrong and that 'Mac Format' was correct - possibly from searches in eBay. Now that I look more closely at it, I see that Future Publishing always uses 'MacFormat'. I shall have to mend my ways.
As always, there is no rush. I asked the seller in Mexico about issue no. 8 last Monday. She only got around to sending it last Wednesday, which is when I got the send-notification from eBay. I shall wait and see.
ta,
soudesune

Hi Mike,
Issue 15 is up. Issue 8 has not yet arrived, alas.
All the best,
