the whole ubu.com is about 1.2TB

if anyone interested in getting a copy please write to:
little.prince {AT} custodians.online

if not more than few we will do it as we did the ubu-mirror.ch:
2TB usb3 hard disk in a laptop bag, then train trip from north germany
and finally a friends at the dinner in zürich.

if not more than few and a good bandwidth then something along the
command lines of:
rsync -zvrith --progress --delete --inplace --no-whole-file
custodian {AT} ubumirror/ubu/ /local/path/ubumirror/

if more than few then we will use torrents like this one:

+ please prepare yourself to join (and be bothered in some) irc channel too ;)

p.s. as said in our previous letter (http://custodians.online/): "this
is the time for us custodians, being dogs, humans or cyborgs, with our
names, nicknames and pseudonyms, to raise our voices. [..] to
download, to share, to read, to write, to review, to edit, to
digitize, to archive, to maintain libraries, to make them
accessible..." and (sometimes) to convince our institutions (like in
the case of ubu-mirror.ch) to support the fragile world of shadow
libraries through sharing their hard disks, bandwidth and servers...
(fyi - if anyone into numbers & birthdays: next year textz.com is
10000, monoskop 13, sci-hub 6 and nettime 22 - jai)
