Archive Team recruiting

Warrior-based projects

Current Running Warrior Project: Reddit
  • URLTeam: URL shorteners were a fucking awful idea. IRC Channel #urlteam (on hackint).

There will be fewer Warrior projects than usual due to the virtual appliance being unable to run many newer projects that utilize wget-at. It will take a little bit of time before an updated version is available that can run it.

Scripts only

  • .EU domains: The Brexit deal is done, and with that comes a purge of UK-based sites no longer eligible to use the .EU domain as of 2021. IRC Channel #noteurdomain (on hackint).
  • Endomondo: GPS workout tracker with optional social networking features, shutting down 2020-12-31. IRC Channel #findelmundo (on hackint).
  • Flash domains: An effort to preserve what remains of a storied legacy of websites hosting Adobe Flash Player content before the web industry takes it behind the shed. IRC Channel #flashbang (on hackint).
  • Classic Google Sites: Making more sites inaccessible to the public starting September 1, 2021. IRC Channel #nearlylostmygoogles (on hackint).
  • Reddit: Banning communities that generate bad PR for Reddit Inc. Currently grabbing new material. IRC Channel #shreddit (on hackint).
  • GitHub: Embraced-uh, I mean, bought by Microsoft. IRC Channel #gitgud (on hackint).
