i went to go download the releases and it looks like the server has fallen over, lol. let me know if anyone mirrors it somewhere.

@SkinnyFeels it's pretty cool. i'm not too sure what's in those repos, so probably not earth-shattering, but definitely looots of cool old software to explore and play with

@dogstar I see loads of people on here playing with it and it just makes me want to play with it. But I have a squirrel! memory and so can't go and play with it unless I can persuade myself it has something to do with creating music! 😆

@dogstar Are you just looking to take a copy to archive or are you planning on running any of them?

@grimmware both! the latter will be a little bit down my project list, since i've been trying to get octopus to compile on a 32-bit compatible osx in my free time lately

@vu3rdd aha, it works now! it was really chugging when i checked earlier

@dogstar haha, what? Nokia had plan9? 😃 I need to read up on that

@dogstar these are the contents of the .tar files and I have not identified if/how the ISO files differ.
