Default 100 million FICS games

Dear all,

Here is a .torrent file for all recorded FICS games from November 1999
onwards.
The games haven been converted into PGN format and verified.

If there are no seeds please send me an e-mail. I attempt to keep at
least
one seed with sufficient bandwidth alive at all times, but it is not
automated.

Torrent file: http://marcelk.net/logics/FICS-games...200910.torrent

Contents looks like this:

FICS-games/
fics-1999-11.pgn.bz2
fics-1999-12.pgn.bz2
fics-2000-01.pgn.bz2
... etc ...
fics-2009-08.pgn.bz2
fics-2009-09.pgn.bz2
fics-2009-10.pgn.bz2

The total number of games is over 100 million.
The total download size is around 15GB, zipped.

http://ficsgames.com/ has a searchable version of this data online.

ALL recorded FICS games? I suppose that must include those lo-fi,
substandard 1-minute bullet games.
I find the idea of possessing a 100,000,000 game database
fascinating... But I would think that the download would take over a
week; wouldn't a cbh file be a of the size?

Every game is different. Every game is great.
If a game is wasted God gets quite irate.

I have made an update.

There is a torrent file for all recorded FICS games from November 1999 onwards.
The games haven been converted into PGN format and each one has been played through and the score integrity has been checked.

Contents looks like this:

FICS-games/
fics-1999-11.pgn.bz2
fics-1999-12.pgn.bz2
fics-2000-01.pgn.bz2
.... etc ...
fics-2009-08.pgn.bz2
fics-2009-09.pgn.bz2
fics-2009-10.pgn.bz2
.... etc ...
fics-2016-12.pgn.bz2
fics-2017-01.pgn.bz2
fics-2017-02.pgn.bz2

The total number of games is just over 1.74 billion.

The total download size is about 165 Gb, zipped. Unzipped... I am not sure.
