It ticks me off. I mean Rockbox is the only way that I can access the
info on my Archos. I was spoiled when it reads all my info allowed.

Gotta love pricks who attack a site that does nothing more than provide
a sweet, open-source, replacement firmware for jukebox players... I'll
gladly play host to a backup once the main wiki is up and running. I've
got more than enough disk and my download bandwidth is 7 Mbps. I can't
really host a mirror to serve data (sloooow up speed) but I can house
lots of data for indefinite time on a regular basis.
