I remember someone downloading it and it came up to 13 gigs or something like that. Its not that big because the files are small, but there is alot of them.

I don't like the idea of deleting anything. I know most of the content is outdated emus but I feel like it's a bit of history that should be preserved.
I'm a bit of a pack rat.

I'm going to assume that the 13gb refers to the file archive because that would be pretty massive for a database, which is what I've been talking about.

Isn't the history thing much better covered by Emu Wiki?

Yeah, it surely is painfully obvious that he cares nothing for the site, especially since (and I didn't know this part until you pointed it out) some of the ROMs from the ROM subdomain were removed recently. It's even more painfully obvious then that he's just completely ignoring all of us here on the legitimate side of the site.

Edman had nothing to do with the ROMs being removed, that was done by the host after someone CC:d them on an email providing Square-Enix with all of the necessary information for a DMCA takedown notice. (The scripts are apparently autogenerated based on the files in each directory, so there's no need to edit the HTML when a file is deleted.)

According to Edman, the co-owner refuses to do anything with the site because of the lack of income and Edman apparently isn't able to do much with his 50%. But at least he did renew the domain for 2 more years when I pointed out it was expiring next month.

Ah, figures...should have known it was the host. Well then, since you're talking to him, tell him to get in here. He's apparently ignoring every single one of us.

If you can find more than one non-dick post by TDH in a day or two, I'll donate the site 5 bucks...

Here are the last three posts I had made before your own. You can pay up in the form of $5 of STFU.

Wouldn't be anything I've not tried already then. Ah well.
