Hi Everybody,

Some of you might remember me from OSBetaArchive when it was still around. I had a fairly large FTP that kept going with a pretty high speed circa 2005. Just saying hello!

Awesome. Glad you joined. Enjoy the site and stick around a while! Did you have the same username at OSBA?

Yup, I remember you from OSBA, including your server, been a long time now, yeah?

Good to see you around, bro. :)

I remember you, too, Alexsis. Good to be back. Yeah, since OSBA shut down I had gotten out of betas. After viewing Windows 7, I was like "hey, what's on the internet now for Betas." I think I'll setup another FTP for you guys. I upload at about 300KB/s now, so we'll see :wink: :D

Alexsis, I swear there was someone with your username there, then. What was your name back then?

I feel like such an idiot, now.. Maybe I was thinking of someone named Ahanix or whatever and got confused.. Grr..

Don't feel like an idiot, I was around near the start, but I didn't post very much: Dictator-of-Death, and Shanks a little later on.

Oh, by the way, how do I go about setting up a server? I don't have anything much anymore, but if people would upload, that'd be awesome. Is this place good like that? Will people upload to a server if I create one?

I'm sure people would, in the past few months we've gone from having 3 servers to 1 server.

You've been over it, I haven't! o_O

Love to know who you know that comes from the former Yugoslav that is now apart of Slovenia to have the same name as myself, and mispronounce the last name the same way you would spell it! :P

Welcome! I hope you enjoy your stay, we have lots of goodies for you to have when you get access. Shouldn't be too hard for an ex-OSBA member!

We have our own official server on a 100Mbps connection, and that serves all of our needs. You can set up your own server if you wish, but people usually upload to the official server, then our ftp admin repacks the files and adds them to the download account.

With over 700GB of files you can see why people would rather add to there rather than a smaller ftp ran by a normal member. But don't let that discourage you, if you want your own server, you go for it!

TBH I liked the signature in which you mentioned reputation but that sig was only a day old or two...

Whoops, didn't mean to take it out, I added more bouncy balls for Jabs and forgot to put it back in.
