[Nettime-nl] DDS mirror complete

After weeks of continuous downloading, my mirror of the DDS 
user pages is now practically complete: 54.382 user sites are 

As a side-result, I can also establish that Joost Flint's 
"12.000-13.000 active user sites" was wishful thinking 
(or a little white lie for the press and the investors? ). 
There are exactly half as many active sites, 6.248 to be 
precise, including all the sites that contain nothing but 
a redirect. 

A more detailed account and the entire list of active/empty 
DDS sites can be found at http://dds.provocation.net/rst/ 
Since most of the users on the list have previously chosen 
to not publish their URLs, and especially since a list like 
this is a gold mine to spammers, I put the list behind a 
password. You can log in with 

  login:  authorised
  pwd:    oops

For the rest, I offered Joost Flint access to the site and 
the possibility to react and possibly correct me before 
releasing this publicly. My server log tells me that he 
visited the site. However, he did not react.
