Mirrors and Downloads

SC Mirrors Several Projects / Sites:

SpinelliCreations hosts several projects itself, as well as offers mirroring (http / ftp / rsync / etc.) to organizations and causes of merit (as determined by SC).

If you'd like to request a mirror for your project / site, send an email to Admin@SpinelliCreations.com and include some information about your project or site, and why you think that it warrants our bandwidth.

MIRROR

We Could Use some Mirrors Ourself, Too:

Similarly, if you'd like to become a mirror of www.SpinelliCreations.com, send an email to Admin@SpinelliCreations.com and let us know the following:
... 1) your proposed web address for the mirror [ie. http://www.yoursite.com/spark],
... 2) your provisioned bandwidth and available bandwidth,
... 3) your emergency contact email address.

Be aware that all SC mirrors require rsync clients... you will be rsyncing down data, and we would request sync's be performed no less than weekly (preferably daily).

Currently, we're eager to add as many as half-a-dozen mirrors; but that will require you to have:
... minimum 15 Mbps upload pipe
... minimum 50 GB available storage space
... ability to rsync to our primary server in the US
... ability to host content over http (Apache / light-httpd / any other Open Source web server that supports file-indexed directory browsing)

What are you actually mirroring:
... not the website, simply the download content
... only content which is not already a mirror itself
... ... for example, you will mirror content under 'download.spinellicreations.com/syphon', but not 'download.spinellicreations.com/php_mirror'

pHp Hypertext Processor:

MIRROR

CentOS:

The Community Enterprise Operating System is a 'binary compatible' clone of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (Advanced Server) built from the source RPMS distributed under the GNU GPL by Red Hat, Inc. It aims, for all intents and purposes, to be as close of a 'tit for tat' clone of the upstream distribution as possible, and is typically considered the standard for comparison by which other clones are measured.

SC mirrors CentOS's entire distribution stream - all versions, past and present, are archived here.

Access the mirror here:

... HTTP -- CentOS.SpinelliCreations.com

... FTP -- SpinelliCreations.com/centos_dot_org_mirror

MIRROR

RPM Fusion:

RPM Fusion provides software that the Fedora Project or Red Hat doesn't want to ship. That software is provided as precompiled RPMs for all current Fedora versions and current Red Hat Enterprise Linux or clones versions; you can use the RPM Fusion repositories with tools like yum and PackageKit. RPM Fusion is a merger of Dribble, Freshrpms, and Livna; their goal is to simplify end-user experience by grouping as much add-on software as possible in a single location.

SC mirrors primary architectures for both the Enterprise Linux and Fedora branches, both free and nonfree (non-free), formerly known as 'freeworld' and 'nonfreeworld', flavors.

MIRROR

Repoforge (formerly RPMforge):

Repoforge is a project that maintains RPM packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), CentOS and Scientific Linux. It consists of a set of repositories compatible with various RHEL versions. It's actually the collected works of two (now-merged) repositories that gained fame in 'solo' life -- authors Matthias Saou, Dag Wieers and Dries Verachtert -- the 'Dag' and 'Dries' repositories combined in one.

Software's Last Stand

Sometimes, projects are abandoned by their authors / maintainers. It's a sad fate, but it happens for various reasons. Select few are chosen by SpinelliCreations and, if we have enough of the project tree, they're posted here up through their last build / revision.

Blade Encoder:

Tord Jansson's original (and still the best) MP3 (mpeg layer 3) audio encoder. Supporting a multitude of options and switches, Blade Encoder (although abandoned in 1999) produces quality MP3 audio files that surpass the latest (2010) builds of LAME Encoder (not to say that the LAME Encoder is not a good product in and of itself).

Source code version 0.94.2 still compiles on Red Hat Linux v.5-4, and all of the Linux RPM's still work on modern distributions also.
