AnyHub is a file hosting service which was about to close and we've archived. Its content is being uploaded on IA: http://www.archive.org/details/archiveteam-anyhub

What is AnyHub.net?

AnyHub is a fast, free and simple file host that anyone can use. Signup not required, and upload files of up to 10 GiB at a time.
Files uploaded will generally be kept forever, unless they are in violation of our Terms of Service.
AnyHub is developed and run by Charlie Somerville, a student from Melbourne, Australia. The awesome design was created by Matt Anderson, a talented graphics designer from Ohio.

The original FAQ

AnyHub's death

The official banner said AnyHub will be shutting down as of Friday, 18th of November. Please download any important data immediately, as it will be unavailable past that date.

On an unknown date, AnyHub seems to be back online again (as checked on December 14, 2011). All its data seems to remain intact, though there was some time it was unavailable around its closing date.

Tools we used

The filenames it gets assigned seem to be ascending, so we can define a region and start downloading!
Github page: https://github.com/ArchiveTeam/anyhub-grab
To download all tools: "git clone git://github.com/ArchiveTeam/anyhub-grab.git ; cd anyhub-grab ; ./get-wget-warc.sh"

How does the tool work?

The dld-client is one of the easier download-tools.
Just start a terminal/screen with "./dld-client.sh {your_nickname}" (nickname needs to be A-Z, a-z, 0-9, - and _)
The download stats/dashboard is here: http://anyhub.heroku.com/

Uploading your data

To upload the data you've downloaded, first contact SketchCow on IRC for an rsync slot. Once you have that you can run the ./upload-finished.sh script to upload your data. For example, run this in your script directory: ./upload-finished.sh batcave.textfiles.com::YOURNICK/anyhub/
