Well... Shucks...! I responded too late!! Does it all work okay? I can still figure out a way to pop it out my folder and onto one of these other sites if it's inaccessible. I am so glad people recall MS fondly. It makes me think of a childhood disease getting you out of school. My progress on game creation is so glacial, I'm too fumble-fingered and unfocused to keep up with my ideas.
 
By the way, I am gods17. I forgot my old password. I also talked big about an FPS in my last post, but obviously that didn't come to fruition and for that I apologize. I sincerely hope that I can make this thing eventually. But I also want to make a CAG (and write a full response to the CAG thread that got started here for MY fucking honor... Sheezus.... I'm PIG....) and a roguelike...... the last weeks I stayed up writing huge lists of monsters, items, characters and locations - thousands and thousands of them!!! It's so ambitious. I'm ashamed... IndulgenT...
Yeah, it's working fine. /s/ is in the URL and not /u/ so it won't be made private. I thought only share-folder (/u/-type) links could be right-click-to-download (and thus also Wayback Machine compatible), as I noted in my edit to my previous post. But uploading to Philome.la would be good too. Sorry for panicking and thinking it was going to be lost.
 
Also, the guy who originally posted Mastaba Snoopy to Metafilter http://www.metafilter.com/164011/Good-Grief-More-Entropy#6846666]wrote something nice in defense of preserving it.[/url]

Dropbox (which hosts Mastaba Snoopy) has sent out an email to its users saying they're making all Public folders private. Losing Mastaba Snoopy would be like the Library of Alexandria burning down. Could you please reupload it to philome.la and/or Google Drive or something? I'm also posting the game's Wayback Machine link on Metafilter in the meantime.
 
Edit: Nevermind, the /s/ rather than a /u/ means it uses the Share function. I thought direct file links were only possible via the Public folder, but they can be turned into direct links by changing the domain from dropbox.com to dl.dropbox.com or dl.dropboxusercontent.com.
