I am shutting the project down. It has been expressed by many users that the website has a untrustworthy track record and that I cannot be trusted. I have spent well over 60,000 of my personal money into this over the last two years and countless time away from my own family. Then I have to accept statements made by various users. It is taking a personal toll on myself and its led me to stay away from the community as a whole. I do not wish to damage things any further and that is the reason for my decision. I have had a team leave me in the dust and make false accusations. A team that never did anything to help the technical or financial aspect of the project. I cannot carry it any further. It is with a heavy heart to announce the shutdown date. 06/05/2016. On this date the servers will be shutdown and the website will be inaccessible.
How can I help?
Unfortunately, the site can't handle too much load, so we can't really hammer it very hard, expect strict rate limiting. Items are up to hundreds of megabytes in size.
Running a Warrior
You can start up a Warrior and there select ZippCast. (If you don't really care what you are archiving, select ArchiveTeam's Choice instead, as at some points ArchiveTeam may priorize another project.)
Running the script manually
If you use Linux and you're a bit familiar with it, you can try running the script directly.
The instructions can be found at github.com/ArchiveTeam/zippcast-grab.

The number after
If you want to stop the script, please do it gracefully if possible. To do so, create an empty file named STOP in the folder of the script (terminal command:
If you see "Project code is out of date", kill the script, go to its folder (
Donating to the Internet Archive
Content downloaded by the ArchiveTeam will be uploaded to the Internet Archive, where it will be stored and be available – hopefully – forever. However, storing it costs thousands of dollars in the long run. So, if you can afford, please consider donating to the Internet Archive, so that this piece of history can be kept for us all. http://archive.org/donate
