And the beat goes on .. .. .. ..

What could be better than a bunch of Onan documentation?
Even more Onan documentation.

mbb is sending me more manuals, and they are being named and
added to the "new additions" directory at the top of preskitaz's repository.

If you find something there, and it goes away, it has been moved to the
main folder.

Thanks everyone.
Steve

Just merged about 90 new manuals into the main archive.

I'll also leave the new ones in the New Additions directory for a
couple days in case any other manual archive wants them.

If twinslan or farokh want a single zip of the new additions, just ask.

Glad to hear Doug Reed's original twinslan site is back up.
Too much time has passed for me to edit post 4 where his link
got disabled. Here it is again:

What might be a better idea is to set up mirrors rather than separate sites. One site would be the "master" and the other sites would sync to it nightly or weekly (or whatever schedule).

That way every site would be the same without requiring people to upload to multiple locations.

It's fairly trivial to on unix/linux, and only slightly more complex on windows.

Thoughts?

Sounds like a great idea. I do know that my hosting service does provide 30 daily backups and free restore. Having mirrors would simplify updates and add redundancy.

This is almost too much fun.

Two large batches of manuals have been named and added to main.
First was 160 files, second was 170. 1310 Total manuals now.

Most of them are pretty boring (unless you need them).
But stuff from the 50's 60's is interesting reading. $3.00 pistons?
Also the old dc generator and turbine power manuals.

Farokh now has copies of everything on his xmsi site, and some things
I found on his site (propane manuals) have been copied to preskitaz' site.

Manuals are still coming in. Being added to "New Additions" on onanfiles,
and dropped directly to main page at xmsi. Big zip archives of new stuff are
also safe for n0nas if he wants them.

Received a manual From Billy yesterday. I just finished scanning it in full color. It is the CW Master Parts. The reason I copied it in color was I thought it was neat. Ed Sparks would have loved it. He was big on the CW's . The cover is simulated leather. It is about 63MB because its in color. I also scanned it in B/W and its about 5MB. Im sending them to Zeromedic to upload.

Here is the link to the color one until its uploaded.
