My old server

So as some of you probably already know, the dude who used to host me abruptly cut off all my services. About 9 months ago though, he did give me a backup of all my files (I don't think I have a MySQL dump anywhere, but I only really used that for message boards). Rather than attempting to restore it all, I'm asking all of you to tell me which of them you used the most, so that I can restore just those ones.

Even better perhaps, iimarckus could sift through the board's database for all links to romendo.net from here, and tell me what they are. I'd also like to formally ask him to host any of these files so that they don't disappear again (or if they do, that means the board disappeared too, so at that point...)...

Re: My old server

Even though it's archived, it would be nice to have your Missingno. explained page back up (it may make a shorter and easier to remember URL).

Didn't you have an online sprite compressor tool or something? Would it be possible to restore it? I never used it, but I imagine that other people may have found it useful.

Re: My old server

Not to mention it's explained in more detail at Smogon with a table that looks suspiciously like mine.

Re: My old server

Oh. Thanks Danny.

@Stag019. Yes. I already knew about Crystal_'s article, but I didn't remember that it already covered the bulk of your article on Missingno.'s "base stat data structure", so thanks for telling me. Mainly why I like your article is because it served as an easy access to the starting base stats data structure offset and I've used your formula many times to analyze things like glitch Pokémon's sprites that freeze the game, but I guess personally for me I should save your formula on a text file.

Re: My old server

lol I just couldn't think of a better way to show Missingno.'s data. I think I just changed the format a bit.

Re: My old server

Just did a google search. Results:

There were a few others, but these were the most important. Although for reverse.php, I'd really like people to start using my C program, and for 2bpp.php, I have a program for rgbds called rgbgfx in the making (which will also handle 1bpp)...

Re: My old server

Well yeah that's the point. You have to remember what they did in order to know how useful they are and if they're worth backing up on iimarckus.org or not.

Re: My old server

What's wrong with just putting everything up?  If you don't want people to use the cruddy PHP scripts, just tar.gz it up and only provide the sources, for posterity.

Re: My old server

I don't want to get my old hard drive out right now, but the .tar.gz of the entirety of my host is still almost a gigabyte. Plus, some of it is probably sensitive data/old Acmlmboards that no one wants the source to/code that could have large security flaws that I don't want people to see (see also the part where I said Acmlmboards).
