It hasn't been published in many years. The latest one will be at least ten years out of date.
But since then, server space has gotten less expensive, and the volume has (I'm pretty sure) gotten way too large to save to a CD.

Sixteen years out of date. I uploaded the CD for the benefit of mankind, but it's only value is a curiosity of what the early forum was like. The most recent one only covers 1999 to 2000.

Cliff make it available thru Torrent sites years ago after gave up trying to sell. Even then now many times can't get it because no-one seeds the torrent.

Making CD version was hard work and made very little to no money. Vol2 max out CD capacity @ ~ 710MB and like PFF site, Many didn't like Search function for CD.

Updated disks will have same problems w/ dead images because pictures post thru photobucket etc and people deleted moved a picture or link expired.
With pictures is likely too big for 2 layer DVD. Might be big BR burn disks too. Many PC and other devices still are built w/o having BR players so less people will buy. (Many Others w/ BR players only can use 2 layer disks.)

Note: If you don't like PFF search... try use Google and add site:www.fiero.nl to search.

I agree the forum CD/DVD/BD/BD-XL is not going to be a huge money maker. But there does seem to be continual interest in having an archive of the fourm. Blaming the disc size seems like a hollow excuse not to do it.

BD-XL is 100 GB. I doubt the forum is bigger than that. Someone that knows could answer for sure. Yes the picture links to online sites will go dead without internet access and will eventually go dead even with. But the online forum has that same issue. There is software out there that can painlessly archive an entire website. How difficult would it be to dump that to BD-XL? By the way I have a blu-ray burner in my laptop.

Oh and why does it have to be a disc? A 1T drive is about $50. for those folks that really want an archive sell them a hard drive with the entire forum on it.
