Note to Ico: not sure if this has been mentioned before, but the linuxdj 
lad site used php. The existing pages won't work without that installed 
on the host.

I've grabbed a copy from Paul's server because I have some hope that one 
day I'll go through the audio and video and clean up anything that needs 
cleaning up ... not sure if I'll ever get to that ... But, I guess I got 
very nervous when all of that content went missing from the net for so 
long. So I feel a little better having my own copy. Once the site is 
back up, I intend to keep my local copy synced to the official one.

Anyway, I think it would be very good to have several mirrors of the 
full site online. Maybe this is getting ahead of things a bit, since 
there isn't an official, canonical site up, yet ... but, to prevent 
getting in the same linuxdj-esque bind again, it would be good to have 
the content in more than one place, just in case Ico should have to 
leave VaTech or someone there were to decide he couldn't use the 
bandwidth or all of Blacksburg suddenly goes luddite on us or whatever.

A copy of the site is uploading to my server at the moment.
http://zhevny.com/lad/lad/ (broken due to no php on zhevnycom)
etc, etc.
A cursory glance over the directories looks like most things are there, 
though I wasn't that familiar with the old site aside from viewing it.

I'm not suggesting anyone publish this anywhere. It's only on my home 
dsl. Maybe it's dumb of me to even put it there. I'm thinking of setting 
up a mirror at RFA on techweb.rfa.org, where there is ~50Mbit/s 
connection, once the lad site is back online. Any comments on that and 
the idea of mirrors in general?
