The HOLY GRAIL has been found

After many years of being lost - the original backup of div-arena.co.uk has been found, but the hard disk has failed.

The old maxtor 80gb ATA / 133 drive currently houses every single game ever submitted to div-arena, including some that were never published to the site, old div games studio windows ports, remakes, demos, dlls, competition entries, everything we could dream of.

Sadly the cost to repair the drive to retain the data is nearly £500 which is something I cannot personally finance at this point.

Are there any ex DIV users out there fancy helping towards the cause and keep the spirit of DIV alive?

If so please get in touch either via the forum, emailing me, mikedx at gmail.com or via twitter @themikedx

Perhaps somekind of patreon or ko-fi.com could be used to get the founds to restore the data

How has the drive failed? as pc's have't had ide connectors in like around 15years is it just that? does drive make clicking noise? is it that the drive does nothing?
