confusion about how to contribute to download files
Posted: Sat Jun 27, 2020 7:41 am
Hello. So I stumbled across this website because I found that there is something here that I have been looking for for probably a couple of months now. Understandably, I can't just go getting access to ftp servers to download files without contributing, and that's where I have a problem. Aside from the fact that I don't think I own anything anyone here would find useful, I am also visually impaired, and so we can forget about me scanning any DVD artwork here and now, because I would need a sighted person to help me do it, and assuming they made any errors, I'd upload it, find the upload deleted or whatever because of invalid following of the guidelines, and then I'd have to request their help again until it was done right, just not practical. So basically, I am just trying to access 6 isos, and if there is a way to do so, I would be more than happy to contribute in some way to get them. I *DO NOT* wish to be some sort of leach! However, I am at an utter loss of how to contribute. Honestly I don't even need FTP access, I'm just trying to figure out if there is anything I can do to just get access to a few files, each probably around 600mb according to the search. Sadly though the only thing I have is money. I have probably never purchased a computer disk containing software in my life, because while I could braille labels and such, it just doesn't make sense when I can just download stuff and always have it organised. Unfortunately what I want seems to have quite literally disappeared off the internet, so I don't really know what to do. Like I said, I don't want to be a leach and if possible would gladly contribute to get these few files, but I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas as to how? The only thing I can think of is a $100+ donation, but it seems vehemently clear that money is not accepted as a way to get files. Again, I don't even necessarily need FTP access, just links to 6 files. If anyone has any more unique ways I may be able to contribute to get them, I'd be very obliged. If this just comes off as some annoying person wanting to take advantage of the website, I really apologize as this is not my intention. I just have a project I am working on, and it involves a device running an old operating system, one where the development environment seems to have completely vanished from the net aside from this website, and I'm getting a wee bit desperate here. If anyone can think of a solution to my problem I'd really appreciate it. Thank you for considering this post, and I apologize if I've accidentally broken some guideline or put this in the wrong place or have done anything else wrong in communicating this!
