May 09, 2020 EDIT: I’m back more or less, I have contacted -Archivist about the torrent, still waiting on an update
-I meant to post this 5 hours ago, but it took that long to scan the file directory to get a new total size.
I did a complete rip of all listed Manga up to to 1/1/2020. But I have a few issues with sharing it, so is anyone interested? My Internet speed is DSL and 12/1 Mbps, so internet transfer maybe out.
The Stats from my second rip of the site. I did 2 different site rips, one starting in May 2019 to August 2019, and another starting in August 2019 to January 1, 2020. So I have to combine them both, since Manga Rock was purging series from their library at times. So the final archive size maybe a few GB bigger.
Series Count: 17,950
Total File Count: 11,239,106
Total Archive size: 1,765.2 GB
With my upload speed it would take me almost a year to upload a single copy of the site, so if anyone else with faster internet has one, it maybe better for them to do the upload instead. Worst case and no one else has a copy of the site, I can have a hard drive shipped to me copy everything over and ship it back.
Right now the archive is in folders/files format, but it maybe better to put it in some sort of container like 7zip, to help with file transfers.
I am in the process of ripping multiple sites, and my collection grows 10-15GB a day. My end goal is to have every release ever. But my main focus was doujinshi and oneshots, since they get lost all the time.
Other Projects (estimated)
MangaDex -45% complete (site currently down)
MangaFox -90% complete
KissManga -75% complete
WebToons -100% complete, updating daily
Scanlator (52 different scanlator sites monitored) -100% complete updated weekly
wuxiaworld.site -0% complete, working on how to rip.
Plan A: hope some one else with a fiber connect already has it.
Plan B: Shipping a filled hard drive out to some one who has a fiber connection
Plan C: Sitting in the library for 48 hours to upload using their fiber connection.
