What's it

(see also [1]: FAQ - questions and answers)

It's an idea, which is already a bit longer in my head: a yearly to be distributed CD for all go-eager people. The content are gamefiles, problemfiles, photos and other pictures, texts, sounds, videos (e.g. analysing a game, teaching method, ...), software, etc.

The material (literature, videos, analyzes, ...) should be localized (e.g. russian, spanish, portugues, french, dutch, ...).

The CD shall be distributed on tournaments, by snail mail, with eMule, Bittorrent and FTP. -- RueLue

FAQ - questions and answers

pwaldron: Before embarking upon such an undertaking, you may wish to investigate the Hikarunix collection. It is a pre-wrapped Linux distribution with game records, problems and go-related programs.

RueLue: I know of that CD, but it is not what i think of: I mean a localized CD (language) with yearly modified content. It becomes also a collection for those, who wish to find programs for their own computer system. There shall be videos with analyses, teaching examples, etc. Hikarunix is a booting system. The yearly CD is (shall be) a collection, like CDs of computer magazines. With or without menue for leading through the content. There is much place for ideas, and perhaps the CD becomes completed by those, who burn them for distribution.

Willemien There is allready the Gogod cd, and the go world archive and I am wondering all what you want to put onto your CD is quite a lot. Does it allfit on one CD? But still I would buy it (you are so uch cheaper to the Gogod CD. it is nice to have it on hardcopy instead of all on line. (i am such a bookworm)
