With the latest release we didn't only get almost a full TB of new stuff for the FTP (from 23.31TB to 24.28TB) but we also passed 20000 releases landing at a record 20113 total releases on the FTP!

Good work everyone for uploading all your original titles!

It's a real testament to how willing people have become to share otherwise lost or locked-away beta/abandonware software. There's always going to be some stragglers that don't want to share their collection, or prefer to trade private builds - eventually, things seem to see the light of day, especially here and at several other beta-focused sites.

That said, with thinly veiled attempts at prodding those out there reading this to share more, 20k releases is a huge milestone for any collection.

20k releases already? We've come a long way and it has paid off. I'm so glad people have shared what they had so we can all enjoy it.

Mrpijey, this post has just inspired me to archive some of the other AW disks I have in my shelf.
What really discourages me from uploading though is the speed of transfers, but as I have already mentioned it's my ISP's fault.

This is great! It's nice that people contribute to all of these beta collections! I believe that these collections can preserve these old abandonwares and make sure they aren't forgotten in the future.
