but that's just a bet... I think many ppl bet high also on a thing once called somthing like go0cogl3de (the memory of it is becoming garbled)..
also, that's quite a different matter, how many ppl all over the world have updated backups of many github repos, including JME? it doesnt even need to be so up to date... in a sense that, if you have at least the sha1sum of the latest of everything, any of us could help on restoring a fully funcional copy in case of Sandy (or his zealot) comes by
I think even Kademlia could be an option, we all care? we all share the responsibility to keep it alive, would be cool.
so.. in the other hand, how many ppl have a full backup of the quite good information we find here? I guess none ? even some low viewed threads contain some gems, a dropped code with some good tips that let us avoid spend too much time researching..
Anyway, I think the keyword here could be automation. Why not automate maintenance tasks that optimize disk usage?
. convert images to webp,
. convert videos to hevc/webm,
. audio too?
. fully compress old threads decompressing on demand.
. restrict the number of remote backups to 1, and have a local EXT4 historical backups on 2 cheap 1TB slow external USB HDs.
That all can be easily done on linux with bash scripts and command-line tools (even querying BDs and XML files etc), but I guess the server is not that accessible and may even not be linux, nor have a vmware with access to these files (cygwin may be too slow tho) ...
Who would do that automated maintenance coding work? well, if it could be githubed, any of us could contribute.
