Huge archive - 9/23/2007 1:30:27 AM

In the past, mostly throughout 2006, I compiled every single Conceptis puzzle that I could find into one huge archive (700 or so megs total size --- that's a full CD of puzzles). It kinda got too big for me to handle just on my own, so it has rather fallen by the wayside. Every puzzle category is organized into sub-sections based on difficulty (where known), colour or B&W, size, etc. It is all *very* organized. I also went into the hundreds of PicPuz files that I had found and cleaned-up the numbering as much as I could, deleted all the duplicates that I could find, and uber-organized it as much as my sanity allowed.

Anyways, the idea had been to release *everything* Conceptis in one mega file. I'm just wondering what the interest level on this is, where I could upload something of this size (I'll compress it before upload, so it should be smaller), and if anybody would be interested in 'taking the torch' per sae to continue building the collection --- I stopped compiling it around the time that colour MAPs came out.

It even has all the tutorial puzzles; a huge listing of what all the various names of the puzzles are from around the world; solutions (again, all well-organized); blank layouts for designing your own puzzles (not many of these, but it was a start); all the articles from the current Conceptis website converted to PDFs; all the easter eggs from the website; HUGE puzzles were converted into several formats so as to make printing easier; a listing of the whole Conceptis numbering system (except for colour MAPs I believe).

There's probably more, but I think you get the idea.

Hi Wes,

I have also built similar archives and organized them in my own way. the results can be found in my esnips folder:

I would like to see how you have organized your archives and whether you have anything that I have missed.

Please feel free to correspond with me either through this forum or by direct email at

The difference is that TheWidardOfOz is speaking about puzzles that are allowed material. You have lots of puzzles that are not. Please remove the link!

TheWizardOfOz, I have one in (remember to choose the link show all posts).
It is in need of reorganizing and even missing some of the newest but I have been busy blogging ;)

My advice is to create an account in eSnips or some other provider, but keep the different types in different compressed files or subfolders.
I think no site allows 700 M downloads. Different people are interested in different things. There are fewer (but nevertheless many) of us who swallow everything ;)
Besides for the recipient that size of a file would take very long ;)

Wow! Sounds like you have WAY too much time on your hands, Wizard!

Like Leena says, downloading them into more easily accessible groups is really the way to go. I know I can't download something that large all at once, but accessing one "category" at a time, and JUST the categories they want, might be easier for people.
