Recovery of ftp.cs.tu-berlin.de:/pub/atari

Postby czietz » Sat Mar 18, 2017 9:50 am

The FTP server of the computer science department at Technische Universität Berlin always had an extensive Atari section with freeware, shareware and public domain software. Sadly, some time ago the server was taken offline without any notice, when their IT was restructured. I feared that all content had been lost forever.

However with a lot of effort I was able to obtain a snapshot of the Atari folder on that server from 2015. Since no one volunteered to put it online, I decided to host it myself. So, from now on you can find ca. 400 MB of Atari software at http://atariftp.czietz.de/pub/atari/
Some of the software is in German, some of it in English. The index files are mostly English, though, so you can see what you'll find there.

A request: If you decide that you want the whole collection, please do not put a download manager to work to download all the files. Send me a PM and I'll give you a temporary link to download everything in one file.

Great initiative!

I only wish somebody somehow rescue former content of ftp://ftp.uni-giessen.de/pub/atari -- many historical releases, esp. MiNT related, were published only there...

Yeah, I copy that. Really a great initiative.
Therefore I've started mirroring the mirrors today :D As an early Atari-User (started 1979/1980) the purpose for this is for personally use and to keep all the stuff for historical reasons.
rsync only, currently 3 users max: rsync://144.76.152.207/atari-mirrors/

Anybody still holding some old mirrors? Please let me mirror that!
On the other side of the screen, it all looks so easy.

Awesome! That was one of most popular servers at least for the german users.

Not sure if you know about my atari demoscene archive? Feel free to mirror that aswell... it is constantly updated and you need about 64 GB of space:

Few months later... I have actually managed to get an old backup online, here: http://mikro.atari.org/ftp.uni-giessen.de/pub/atari

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to contain all the files, for instance mintlib releases are missing completely. But still some pretty historical stuff in there!

Good news! Guys from uni-giessen.de were really helpful and managed to find a snapshot with mintlib releases as well. So for the first time since 1999 you can enjoy last Pure C compatible minlib releases, i.e. pl49 - pl52. Not useful for new software but many old sources require it and can take advantage from a newer version (i.e. Thing).

Bored at work (programming is so easy with current hw/sw so I have large chunks of time to pursue my hobbies, if the boss isn't looking ;-))

One of the early FTP servers I used once I got internet access after starting at Uni Freiburg. Typically it was so slow, that I used a FTP2Mail service and got my files mailed the other day. Then logon on a OS/2 box at the library, access via Telnet mibm.ruf.uni-freiburg.de (AIX 3.2.5 box on IBM RS/6000 320H), start 'pine', recieve the mails, store the attachments in my home, de-UUE these, and either store to floppy, or access my home from my flat with blistering 64 kBit/s ISDN … those were the days.
