    Possible drawbacks would include:
    1) only you would be able to add files to this bitcasa folder
    2) bitcasa folder would be only as up-to-date as you have time to upload
    3) you might not be able to / willing to upload leaked bars due to moral and or legal reasons
    4) you don't have time to code it up / time to upload all previous bars
    5) not sure how/if you pay for bitcasa storage. It might be expensive to host there

    Possible solutions to possible drawbacks:
    1) have a designated group of trusted "contributor" users that you know would upload only non-malicious files
    2) with possible solution #1, hopefully one of the contributor users would be able to upload the files as soon as they drop
    3) we're SOL here, and this whole post about hypothetical solution is moot
    4) I'd gladly help out with coding / and also help out with uploading. In addition, you could potentially only upload files starting with 10.3.1.1000 and have this archive be "from here on out into the future"
    5) possibly move to server somewhere else or we could chip in to purchase more storage on bitcasa
    1) Only I can do this, unless I share my Bitcasa account.
    2) See above.
    3) Ha.
    4) I could leave my computer on, maybe.
    5) THE BIG ONE. With this idea, I'd pretty soon hit the 1TB ceiling for a $10/mo account and have to pay $100/mo. Not fun.

    Leaks are 99.999% of the time distributed as autoloaders (and thus not bar files) or upgrade files (and thus not debricks) on MEGA anyway, so why bother?

    Lol fair point. Hey, at least I tried

    1) Google drive lets me mark users as contributors when I share one of my personal google drive folders with them. They can then have upload privileges to that specific folder only. I was hoping bitcasa would be the same.
    3) maybe have url-redirect on your bitcasa so that when someone comes looking for 10.3.2.281 (newest leak at the time of the post), you could tell Archivist "hey, go look at http://someOtherLinkPostedBySomeoneE...ploadedTheLeak ". Then compare the hash of that file at that other URL with your known-to-be-good hash...
    5) any chance you could have rolling archive? "We only store last 75 OSs, sorry for inconvenience" and just erase oldest ones as space gets limited

    OH, I didn't know that leaks were given to beta users as auto-loaders. Good to know. (and you can't split .exe autoloader into its .bar components i suspect)

    Ok, I'm gonna stop dreaming now and actually go do my taxes.

    Okay, question. I might be able to make these two cross-platform (except running autoloaders with Lazyloader, obviously), but to do so would prevent using 7z compression for non-Windows systems.

    I'm thinking .tar.gz, .tar.bz2 or .tar.xz. Speed vs compression.

    Anyway, archivist and most of lazyloader may or may not be cross-platform now. Including 7z support.

    Please, try out the newest releases on various flavors of Linux/OS X. All that's really required is p7zip installed (if you're using 7z compression).

    Package now on pypi as bbarchivist.

    Download with pip, run bb-archivist or bb-lazyloader scripts.

    Requires Python 3.4 and an installation of 7-Zip/p7zip.

    As simple as it gets.

    Pypi package is now ready for primetime.

    No more standalones, just install this from pip. It's easier this way.

    I have it installed on a 32 bit Lubuntu 15.04 beta.

    A couple of things I ran into, may not happen for anyone else. Been playing around with my Linux OS some.

    First time I ran the downloader I had to install python-pip, but when I ran the installer again I had some problems because 2.7 was being used as default. Thought maybe that "alias python=python3.4" would work, still didn't install. I then tried "install python3-pip" and then "pip3 install bbarchivist". That worked and installed.

    I only got as far downloading an OS. I exited out since tonight I don't have the time now to wait for a download. Tomorrow I will run it again and try an another install on an Arch based distro.

    Thank you.

    The checker crashes on windows 8.1 after after typing the device and pressing enter, it crashed too quickly to see what it has written in it. Any advice?

    I typed:
    262 for Germany
    001 for T-Mobile
    Sta100-2 for my z30

    Does it work with "STA100-2"?

    Edit: Fixed this problem. Update to 1.1.1 through pip.

    Feedback to this:

    I tried "STA100-2" and "sta100-2". Updating now and will come back.

    Edit:
    Just tried updated version, same as above with STA100-2.
    It closed right away again, I could see though that it has recognised T-Mobile Germany. And then I've seen the word "device" and then it closed too quickly to recognise.

    I think it closed because it's done.

    Open a Command Prompt window and run >bb-cchecker 302 220 STA100-2. Should spit out stuff onto the screen and finish, as intended.

    Unfortunately still the same. It closes automatically right away before I can see what it wants to show me. Maybe I'm the only one experiencing this?

    Try this:

    Code:
    > bb-cchecker 302 220 STA100-2 > asd.txt
    Should output to asd.txt instead of to screen.

    I'm sorry, still Nothing. When I type this it shows be a syntax error at the "302". I've tried with 262 for Germany and it's then showing me syntax error at the 262. Am I just too stupid to use this?

    Edit:
    I have just tried again and it's going through the searching progress and everything, but closes right away again. I managed to be fast enough and take a screen shot of it right before it closed again automatically.

    I have just started learning programming with C++ via MS visual studio, and I have a suggestion, I hope I don't embarrass myself with it.
    Could it be that there is a break point needed to let the programme open and show me the output?
    I'm really sorry if this all seems so dull, I'm just trying to give a "customers feedback".

    Thank you a lot.

    Edit 2: Lazyloader and archivist work great, no issues here.

    I re-added the "Press enter to exit" to the script invoked without arguments. It should stay open now, if you run bb-cchecker without arguments.

    Upgrade with pip again, to 1.1.2.

    To quote someone else:

    Glad it worked - whatever the reason. Any time someone has an issue it forces me to take a closer look at my code and I usually find something that needs to be improved so it's never a waste of time.
