      3rd edition Vogel online, updated
(Rated as: excellent)

I wouldn't have started a new thread for this, but the old thread was closed. I extend my apologies in advance if minor announcements of this sort are unwelcome.

After nearly a year, I have cleaned up my original scans, applied OCR, and made a JBIG2-compressed PDF of Vogel's fine textbook of organic chemistry. Rhodium has hosted Vogel for a year; now there will be at least two sites with the book, with accompanying size/quality tradeoffs.

      thanks for the offer  Bookmark   

But as long as I remain able to host it, I would prefer that you link to that page rather than mirroring it yourself. Seeing how many people have downloaded books is my clearest indication of their success, and I can't get those stats when the book isn't on my server.

That's the reason Rhodium should host it on his site. That server is fully stocked with all kinds of protections for all our members, and he can supply you easily with stats on the usage of the file.
With all the possibilities of the WOD at present, you should seriously reconcider your reasoning :

That link will be clicked by numerous members directly who have no notion of online security, so it can be seen by any webmaster inbetween the route from The Hive to your server, that the last site visited was The Hive.
This is already a bad thing nowadays. LT/

If I get to see how many people are taking advantage of it, I have no objections to its mirroring. If you could PM me stats for the last year about the DjVu version, that'd be great (unless your security has included deleting all traffic stats).

      Stats for Vogel III  Bookmark   

Only identifyable info has been stripped, I still have # of times each document has been dl'ed, just not exactly when and by whom. The zipped DjVu file has been downloaded about five times daily the last year, and it comprises about 4-5% of my used bandwidth... In comparison, my archive.zip (all *.html and *.txt files zipped) is downloaded on average ~40 times daily, comprising 20-25% of my bandwidth (I updated it today, by the way, it is now 24 MB, containing 47 MB of texts & pictures).

It's great to hear the archive has been updated.
I'm downloading it right now.
It's absolutely the best compilation on clandestine chemistry on the net.
I'll pay you back next time you're in Amsterdam. laugh
