I think the reward would outweigh the risk on this one...:neutral:

Sorry to sound so desperate, i know i'm new here but i would definitely take it upon myself to be one of the new members happy to help out the newer members after me.
Great idea Cio Cio!! I would definitely be interested in doing the same.

You're right Baudy - copying 20 discs per person seems a bit old school these days anyway...
anything for Snatto fans ???

I would also love to do the same. If anyone has TLS, TMMS and anything else that may be of interest (and can put it on a hard drive for me) please PM me.

So I just logged in for the first time in over a year. Glad to see the project is still alive. I was thinking how the show is about to celebrate its 20th anniversary so I pulled out a VHS the other day and it had significantly degraded. I'm pleased we saved it when we did.

Funny to read my 5 year old post and freaking out that the AFP were about to bust my doors down but no one ever contacted me - bar the warning from the ABC a few years earlier.

Glad to see the community is still alive. I'll try and poke my head in a bit more regularly :-)

I'm glad you've posted Ben. It's a great debt we all owe you and it's good to know what your feelings are on the matter now after all this time has passed. I have always wondered what would be the appropriate thing to do and as we've had people ask so many times - sometimes making their very first and only post saying "WHERE ARE THE DISCS?" like Jack Bauer, and without even contributing to the forum - it's been a difficult thing to think what was right or respectful to you to do considering what you had said. The best thing is that they go out in as high a quality as we have them, so the drives/DVDs are the best way to preserve the quality too, hence the whole restoration being preserved. I'd almost thought the ABC thing was a thing of myth even though I'd heard it! We certainly have be quite blessed despite your angst at the time. I remember after show ended, lamenting to someone about not having all of the episodes, and I know countless others have too. Thanks again.

Welcome Back Ben G.

The DVD's you posted me many years ago, arrived in my new home a few weeks back, after we had been separated for over 4 years..

I hope they haven't degraded like your VHS...
