Yeah I'd been thinking about it since you mentioned it.

I'd offer my web site but besides the technical limitations, I'd run out of 
space real quick. Let me chew that one over for a few days and I might be 
able to at least get the ball rolling with FTP.

I suggest this strategy though. Rather than trying to scan and PDF 
everything in bulk, it would be more frugal to scan upon request or as the 
need arises. Scan the stuff we each use the most as we use it and each new 
thing we use (Even if it's old) as it crops up. Finally do requests (if 
you've got 'em) and cool stuff as you think might be of interest. That way 
no-one is bogged down in the process.

But! Managing such an effort is another matter entirely. Just sorting 
incoming data might be a pain and somewhat time consuming. I think that 
would have to be a combined effort.

Lastly: Because of the nature of the thing, it would be pretty much a 
closed shop. Just the people here having access and definitely only on 
approval. If I do it, that's the only way I can make it happen for now. And 
it'll be a bit flakey for a while until I can get yet another boxen set up. 
(And some routers) I gotta push the numbers on this. The problem is that 
outgoing data is free but I pay for incoming. That could be a problem if 
there were large amounts of data sheets coming in. I have no problem 
donating some of my 3gig/month bandwidth to the cause but if I hit the 
wall, it's definitely going to hurt in the wallet department.

But the irony is that I already have such a database setup and on-line and 
mostly accessible 24/7. It's just not public oriented and I don't know how 
public I'm prepared to go. I certainly don't want "Outsiders" messing with it.

So. If anyone has any other thoughts on this, I'm all for it. As long as 
I'm not the only one.

Hope this helps.

Be absolutely Icebox.
