ATTN: Your help is needed to create the largest U2 image archive on the net!!

Elvis is working on a U2 image archive so that we will not have to deal with webshots, geocities, angelfire and everything else that has frustrated us so much regarding uploading and posting pictures. For right now I need all your help to upload the best U2 pictures you have from your computer to the archive site. For now it is not for public access.. Elvis wants to work on getting a nice chunk of pictures uploaded, and later they will be sorted and available for posting.

Please name your files as specifically as possible, as duplicate file names will be overwritten. The program accepts jpg, gif, bmp, png, and zip files.

This is for U2 and U2 related pictures only.

Here is the website address where you can upload your pictures:
http://satellite33.interference.com/archive/

Until the 1mb web upload is fixed you can ALSO upload with ftp:
ftp://images:u2@satellite33.interference.com:21000/

In Internet Explorer you should just be able to drag and drop files and folders.


Id like to take a moment to thank Elvis! This will be really cool once its available.

I think I have finally found a way to make myself useful here, and something I am good at. I have almost 2000 U2 pics on my hard drive, saved from internet sources over the last year. I'll try to upload as many as I can. Thanks.

Thanks Sicy for letting us know!!

Girls, what do you say that we change PLEBA to PLEEBA for Elvis? He deserves it!!!

Can we only do one at a time?

How do we know what has already been uploaded? Should we just break the bank and upload it all and doubles will be deleted later? If there is a way to see it's not working for me. Thanks for any advice, and thanks again for the pic storage!

Hooray for Elvis

If you want to upload more than one at a time, you should zip the files using winzip or another zip program.

Elvis will be building something that will allow you to see what has been uploaded already, but for now he just wants to get it going.

Yeah, try to avoid the watermarked pics if you can.

I'll be helping Elvis later to sort out the pics and get rid of duplicates.
