Edited 15 April 2012

I’ve made “Projects Catalogues” in PDF format for the past projects on LumberJocks.

Each volume is for 1000 projects (less the ones that are no longer there).

A typical page looks like this…

Once downloaded, internet access is not required, so you can browse past projects on the beach, on the ‘plane, in the bath, etc etc. Your PDF viewer should remember where you were, so looking through every page is a breeze.
Each project is, however, linked to the appropriate project page on the LumberJocks web site – click and you’ll be there.
I find this a really useful way to “just flick through” the projects, and would, I think, be particularly useful for new members.

Volume 1, containing projects 1 thru 999, is 123 pages, and weighs in at just 17.4MB – between 1 and 5 minutes to download.

You can download it from here. Click on “Download now”, wait 20 seconds, click “Download file now”, wait a few minutes, and enjoy.

Any technical problems, please let me know.

  • The complete set of catalogues is available here on 4shared. They, alas, now require registration, but it’s free.
  • Later catalogues (I’m updating in slow time) are available here on mediafire.
  • Both those sites contain torrent files so, using a BitTorrent client, you can download the complete set “in one go”. When a new catalogue is added it’s a simple procedure, described in comment comment #11 below, to just get the new one.

123 pages. Well done.I like the way it links you back to the original post. There is a lot of work and effort in what you have achieved. Many thanks.

Unbelievable!! Yes,yes,yes! Got a PayPal account? I’ll fatten it.
I’ve scrolled through 10,000 projects so far, tediously I might add, but this is the bee’s knees.

Wow, this a pretty cool. I’m sure there are quite a few folks on here that would take advantage of your efforts. I also like the way it links back to the original post. That’s really helpful.

OK.
I’ve made the complete set of 55 catalogues.
Phew!

The folder containing the individual catalogues is here.

Note the small “page number” tab at the bottom right …

... where you can get to subsequent pages.

My upload speed is very slow – it’s taking about 20 minutes per file to upload, so it’s going to take a while – probably the best part of today until they’re all there – but you can get the ones that have already been uploaded any time. 4shared does, I think, have a “per person” download limit per 24 hours, but I can’t seem to find out what the limit is – it’ll tell you if you’re beyond it and you’ll have to wait until another day to get more. You can pay to get around this, but a little patience is cheaper.

If anyone wants to upload the files to another hoster, be my guest – if you tell me via PM where you’ve put them, then I can update the top post in this thread to include that information for people.

Wow! This is really great, a labor of love even. I really like that it’s linked to the original project. Thanks for doing this.

If anyone is interested, I can seed the collection and you can download via torrent…

Its just the download steps for getting all of these are tedious..

i guess downloading 57 catalogues is going to get a bit tedious.
I considered going the torrent route, but decided a lot of ‘jocks might not be into torrenting, so I didn’t.
However, now they’re there, all is good.

I’ve uploaded a torrent to the same folder as the files.

It’s called, “LumberJocks Projects Catalogues (57).torrent”. It’s publicly tracked on openbittorrent and publicbt. I’ll add a new torrent for future releases with the “57” changed.

If anyone wants to switch from “tedious” technology to “torrent” technology – simply put what you’ve already downloaded into a folder called “LumberJocks Projects Catalogues” – your client will know it has those already and simply get the ones it doesn’t yet have.

Just to head off a couple of questions at the pass…
  • Yes, my torrent client is called TsunamiX
  • No, you can’t download it from anywhere, I have the only copy, since I wrote it
  • No, there’s nothing dodgy about it

Just FYI, I couldn’t download #17.. it said invalid file. Also, I’ll load up the files and help seed.

Wow that was fast!
I’ve re-uploaded 17 – there was obviously something wrong with it.

Kaybee, I love your avatar, makes me want to get another one.
