Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

I've just found this at a relative of mine, and it's in quite good condition. It's the full boxed set, and IIRC VB 5 is rare. Do I scan it and upload it to the ftp(at least the disks)? And for how much does this sell for(if I wanted to)?
Some quick pics:

Please dump and scan it! Would be great if you could get the covers (front, back and ridge) of the books as well for reference.

Thanks!

I hope I will soon, however I can't really determine that right now (I have exams exactly one week from now so I'll try to scan it before then).

Well, focus on the exams then and do the scan and disc dumps afterwards. No hurry.

I'm almost done now, but I have a problem: the scanner at home died recently, and now I need to wait it to be fixed. I'm sorry :( , I guess they'll have to wait.
EDIT: Scanner fixed, will try to upload tomorrow.
EDIT 2: I almost finished scanning but I have some personal issues. I'll try to finish them by the end of this week.

Scanned and uploaded. Some notes:
I hope the artwork is properly named, couldn't really come up with great names to use.
The small box that holds all the papers and the disk cover was scanned in complete darkness. I had to do this because the box is just too thick for the scanner cover to be closed and while scanning in light the box looks greyish instead of white.
Some of the scans, particularly the box, have many small pieces of grine, but I wasn't able to clean those. I gave EVERYTHING a pretty harsh clean.
I had to compress everything using 7zip this time with Ultra LZMA2 compression since every MB matters, but only the disks were properly compressed (only 38% of original size :OD) .

I'll edit this post to add anything else that comes to mind.
