[DECtalk] DECtalk Archive

As stated many times before, I will host the archive.  After giving 
it some thought, I really do want to host it.  I can't guarantee 100% 
uptime either but I can guarantee at least 95% uptime.  The server 
goes out but relatively infrequently.  I can currently offer http 
only with bandwidth restrictions but I can offer more or less 
permanent uptime.  Also, the rules about adult material are not mine 
but Cox Communications, a cable company.  I don't mind most adult 
material depending on circumstances but Cox forbids it and they send 
letters if you're caught.  I know of someone who got a letter and 
they're innocent.  Obviously the rule on no copyrighted material 
stands because I don't want to get sued.  My server is in the US and 
disk space isn't a problem.  Matthew's server is in the UK and was 
down most of the time when I tried.  Perhaps he can host the adult 
and European copyright material while I host the rest.  Anyway, sorry 
for my very long delay in answering the email but this is something I 
would like to do.  I could offer ftp upload ability, just not 
downloads for now.
