Finally got a new hard drive

Post by expert01 »

So I finally picked up a new hard drive (1TB Simpletech USB was on sale for $250 and I had a $150 off coupon)... using it in RAID1, so 500GB + 250GB from my other HDD, and an extra 60GB sitting on my desk. I'm pulling most the stuff I don't have (but want) off of everyone's servers - I don't collect the betas, just full retail versions (mostly).

I believe I have around 60-80GB of unreleased stuff on my hard drive, and about 50 discs I need to rip, once I get that all done I'll get it all online.

I've been thinking - I've got a lot of the original boxes and cd's/discs, I've been planning on scanning them. Perhaps we could get a collection of box art, CD art, and manuals started? I've been wanting to convert everything I have to DVD format cases.

Sounds like a good idea! Maybe we could set up another gallery script like the build screenshots for just covers/boxes?

Links go dead. If we have a gallery, BA will always have a copy.

10 long years, frig the scene anymore.

Kids think they have deep in sources at the age of 12, why bother caring when no one receives respect anymore, they assume bullcrap, but that's all they are.

I'm all for a gallery (kind of like cdcovers.cc), but only if it's possible for BA members to make backups of it. I'd hate to lose a lot of work like that if BA went like OSBA.
