For future reference:

Style guide for FTP uploads.

We accept three formats:

.tardist
.tar.gz
.tar

If libarchive makes it to irix eventually, I'll add tar.bz2/.xz but since they're not in the base system I don't want to add anything that requires nekoware.

We're mirroring tgcware too.
I want request 3D models of SGI machines or spare parts, and 3D models, projects, scenes, benchmark stuff or similar additional contents for use with the most common SGI apps, like SoftImage scenes, PowerAnimator projects or wires, tutorials etc.... I think add Hotmix and SGI demos collection will be very interesting too.

We do not allow .zip as it is prone to use in malware and easy to hack and forge.

And another thing, please do not upload files from Mac computers. They add all sorts of dirty resource forks to the server and cause confusion.

If you don't know how to strip that out, please send the files to someone who can before uploading. Otherwise, we won't be able to accept anything mastered/compressed on macs.

Then simply don't repack files on your Mac. It is a serious annoyance and can eat up inodes and filesystem space on systems easily. If you don't know how to strip it out before uploading, you will need to install Blueharvest.

I've just sent SoftWindows 95 (version 5), IndiZone 1 and HotMix 4 to incoming. SW95 does require a license incidentally. I have the tools to create this, but won't upload this unless you give the go-ahead Mr Fox.

Trippynet, go ahead and register on the wiki and I'll approve a registration if you want to make a page on Softwindows 95 explaining the license gen.

Btw, if you're looking to populate it, Archive.org also has a ton of IRIX CD rips: https://archive.org/search.php?query=sgi+cd
