so on the eve of the shutdown, Tumblr IP-blocked the Internet Archive.

Just to be EXTRA dicks.

Can you donate bandwidth and CPU time to help archive.org get around the blocks?

Please go to tracker.archiveteam.org/tumblr to find out how to install an archive.org warrior so we can get as much backed up as possible!

We've only got hours left and we still only have a few dozen boxes running, we need as many people as we can get on this!

@Almafeta it’s worth noting that archive team and archive.org are different people

@Almafeta on it! got an underused gaming rig running the appliance now

@Almafeta the Warrior's giving the following output: "Tracker rate limiting is active. We don't want to overload the site we're archiving, so we've limited the number of downloads per minute." Could Archive Team remove that settings / give instructions on how to override, given the urgency?

@Almafeta how have I not heard about this before? Quick setup going now!
I'll have to look at a more sustainable approach later... Can a raspberry pi run virtual box?

@M0YNG @Almafeta not that I know of. best to pull an old x86 machine out of cold storage instead

@DJWalnut @Almafeta exactly what I've done, an old netbook is running at 100% cpu 😁
Just running the docker image, so that might be an option too

@Almafeta do you know if there is some solution to run it with hypervm?

@GeekDaddy @Almafeta yeah i wish there was a way i could run their software on my server(s) easily. VBox is not pleasant to play with there. I might yank apart their VBox image and see if I can extract the needed components to run it in FreeBSD jails

@Almafeta
What do you mean, only got a couple hours left? I can probably set up an old laptop once I get home but that's gonna take a good nine hours....

@Almafeta Got a warrior running but most of the jobs just keep failing :(

@spacekookie @Almafeta It can't download "sensitive content", can it? ._.

@spacekookie @Almafeta try opening the failing ones, I think they're all "sensitive content"

@lara @Almafeta No, it is actually downloading "sensitive content". I'm just generally being rate-limited because tumblr is being ddos'ed 😂

@Almafeta Done. Converted and running as KVM (libvirt). Firsts items failed, but now it seems running satisfactorily (though I don't see myself on the tracker).
