6 (+) Years!

Huzzah! Archive Scans has been up for over 6 years now! Sorry I missed the site's proper birthday, actual life has been a bit chaotic now leading into the holiday season.

Books! I just got a batch of wonderful books from Boinger that are at the top of the queue now, they'll be showing up here in the next few weeks.

New server! I'm working on building a new server to host the torrents out of. That'll come online next week but the changeover should be pretty much transparent to everyone.

I'll be posting more books soon, see you then!

F.S.S. Designs 4 - Mamoru Nagano Art Work and Design Work - F.S.S. Characters XIII

Designs 4 is a big book, A3 in page size and well over 100 pages. It's kind of a mix of the first three Designs books and Nagano's earlier artbooks (Smoke Walls, Plastic Style and others were A3).
This book covers reworked art and characters from The Five Star Stories and some Gothicmade content.

New book, new plans

Hello all!

I got back from out of town yesterday, managed to pick up a copy of F.S.S. Designs 4 while I was in Seattle. I'm going to start a scan of one of Boinger's books this week and I'll likely do Designs 4 after that. I'll probably finish off Boinger's batch and then do the District 9 book once those are done.

The new servers been working great. I've been taking it offline for chunks of time so I can work on training myself on the ESX host that the torrent servers running inside of. Don't be too alarmed if it's offline, it'll come back up before too long.

I'll be back soon with another book.

New server!

Good news! Archive Scans' torrents are now run from an in-house Dell r210 ESXi host instead of a first-gen Atom system. No more worrying about it locking up from overloading the processor or filling up the memory. It took me about a week and a half getting the host and VM up and running (using this as self training) but it's working perfectly now.

Let me know if you have any issues.
