That's really sad... Well, I was going to count on your site during Olympic season...
Well, maybe you should try to use torrents?

Thanks for all the hours of toil (and the forebearance of your Computer
group in hosting the MPEGs). Maybe someone will happen upon another
resource for them.

Thanks again!

Thanks for everything, Janne! What you've contributed is so far beyond
the admirable, there are really no words to express the depth of my (and
our in the U.S.) appreciation.

Is there any kind of alternative, such as if someone else came up with a
server, would you be able to post there?

Let me add my thanks to Gene's. It's been great, and it will be great
if there's a way to save it.

Thanks!

Thanks for everything, Janne! What you've contributed is so far

beyond
the admirable, there are really no words to express the depth of my

(and
our in the U.S.) appreciation.

Is there any kind of alternative, such as if someone else came up

with a
server, would you be able to post there?

So, we shall watch this space.

Thanks also from me for the personal time you've spent helping me and
others to resolve their four letter technical problems, like DIVX's.

And I hope this loss of web server wont stop you posting here with your
extensive ski advice.

Hi Gene

I don't know anybody that have a 100mbit line and a storagecapacity
around 100gig laying around except the University for an acceptable
amount of money, do you?

I haven't given up it all but the service have definitly ended in this
fachion at least, but don't be to hopefull of anything the coming
seasoon, at least it will not be in the same form as before, that have
the University clearly stated.

Some mention moving over to bittorrents, hm, maybe, but that would also
include everybody in this NG to do so also and just looking at the
problems of just shifting the format to Xvid i would imagine that
bittorrent would be an even harder task to do.
