I've gone through Nahee's list, updated all links where necessary and gathered as much info as possible. Can't upload the html though... or a zip, rar, 7z  ;D or the spreadsheet (ods/xls)

Help please?:)
It's just a jump to the left...

Thanks for the effort!

Text should work, and we'll be copying and pasting it all manually anyhow, so text is fine.  If it's a lot of text and you're worried about the page size - use the code tag  :elvis

But an open spreadsheet can use "select all" and copy.  That format is perfectly acceptable since we don't allow the compressed file formats for security reasons.

I doubt we'd ever need spreadsheets in the future, but we can enable the format if you think it's easier.

I think a one-line description would be useful for each one. Putting the different fields on new lines makes it easier for humans to read (I assume that is the audience here). Here are a few to get started; if the latest version is less than a year old, I put "Active development" instead of the latest version to avoid having to update the version when it changes frequently.

Thanks, rsidwell   O0

I've had a lot of family issues lately and will get to organizing all this soon.

Quite some links to the original software up here are new ones as owners of the software moved it to other url's.
The rest of the links were dead  :(

I know it's been a long time, but I've been having some serious family issues and Frank has been busy.

We'll get to compiling all the posted links into the top threads soon!  Probably this weekend at the latest.

I wanted to do it all at once, but may have to do it a few at a time just to get it done eventually.

Any of our Global Moderators have time this week?

I don't want to discourage participation in this project, but I just haven't had time for it among all the other stuff lately.

Impressive list, Sabine, well compiled. Great job!
Sockratease, isn't that list pretty much what this is all about? I suggest we make Sabines post the start of the thread.

Sabine would you be interested in taking responsibility for this thread and the list?
Maybe with moderator status and access to a folder on ftp to backup all the links on our server? especially those hosted at Nahee's site..

@Frank I only have limited online time, so often I'll only be able to look in here in the weekends. If that's no problem I am happy to maintain this thread, but I could understand if you need someone a bit more 'active' on here  :)

as it is 'only' an archive and doesn't need to be updated constantly, a few minutes on a few weekends should be totally sufficient.  :)

would backing things up to ftp also be a job you would do? are you familiar with using ftp?

Coming from the glorious age of bbs's, ftp holds no terrors for me;)
But I'd be thankful if you'd send me the particulars by e-mail so I know how to find your server, logon and upload to the correct location ;)

done.
let's not link to the mirrors on our ftp until any original link is reported down. Let me know when this happens and we will see what to do to prevent any copyright issues.

Thanks a lot for taking care of this! :)

If you scraped the nahee.com site last month, you did so just in time. Looks like the site is now gone.
