Oh my heavens ... I dreamed about this happening one day ... and me with a new external drive to replace my old one ... I know what I'm doing this weekend.
Golly, what were the Last 100 uploads?

Last few days to get a donation in for access to the FTP.

At end of the month the access will not be given with any future donations and then end of May server will be shut down.

So if you donate today you will have access to files until 26th May.

We will decide in future if this should be a feature that is made a regular thing or once a year etc. We will keep you all updated when we make a decision.

Tapped all 200gigs worth!  :D

I was able to get everything I wanted ... but still debating if I want a few more gigs just in case.

I hope you folks make this an annual thing ... and I hope you're getting some useful data regarding what is downloaded.

Thanks again!!!  O0

You are very welcome Boox.
Nothing has been decided yet but we all are happy with the response the FTP has gotten.

Time has come and donations will no longer get you FTP access. Hope if you wanted FTP access you got it in time.

The server will now remain online till end of May and then be turned off so make sure you use all of your months supply of bandwidth.

My thanks to the Capt and the DCM crew for the FTP opportunity provided.  It has been a most beneficial time for this ole comics reader.  I had no problems with the FTP server,  the only problem I experienced came from my computerís new and improved Windows 8 OS!!

The FTP server allowed me to download, organize and rename files for both reading and research.  I hope to accomplish a number of projects with this download and daily downloads.

1-Provide some classic comics  for my grand children's I pads, I phones and smart-phones.  If it isn't on a digital device, they aren't interested. 

2-Organized comic series and standardize file names for a better digital read.  Using a standard naming format for comic file helps my comic reader organize files better and cause less stress on me. I'm a little OCD about organization on the computer.  :D

3-Allow for a portable library to take to some of my comic collector friends who aren't connected to the Internet (yep, still a few around) .  I hope to use the portable library as a guide to what is needed and to enlist help from fellow collectors.

4-The joy of re-discovering the old comics (some which I have only read about but never read) and getting new insights about the old comic series.  As an example.  As you may have guessed, I am a big fan of the 1950s science fiction TV series- Tom Corbett, Space Patrol etc.   A running joke with Space Patrol fans revolves around Cadet Happy being hit on the head by the bad guys in almost every episode.  While reading several series from the 40s and early 50s ( Exciting, Fighting Yank etc), I found that the hero was almost invincible except when they were hit on the head!!

I've also donated again this month in hopes that it will help keep the site on-line for a long time.  As finances allow ( taxes, bills etc) I will be donating on a regular schedule. It may not be much each month, but I hope to continue support both with money and scans.

Again, my thanks for a job well done
Ed (CBpop)

Hi Ed,
Thanks for all your kind words about the site.  As I just said to Blaasty, it's all a group effort and together we've made DCM a wonderful resource to all out there.
We are lucky to have great and generous members such as yourself as part of the family.

I was just curious if there are any plans to bring this back at any point? I'd gladly pay extra for FTP access.
