I need some help
Greetings, fellow pirate degenerates. Long time no see.

I've run into an interesting problem.

I like making shell scripts, and I like bundling them with my torrents (they are usually related to the content of the torrent). For example, when I upload FLAC discographies, I'll bundle the script I use to manage my FLAC library in the hope that it will be useful to someone else. Or when I uploaded my HEVC / x265 Bluray rips, I bundled the ripping script. Cause the plan was to start a community that could do batch ripping of movies together to flood TPB with high quality rips.

When sharing scripts with people online, I had the nasty habit of using Pastebin links, and I set those to expire because I don't want old and inferior versions of my scripts to stick around (I frequently update and improve them). Pastebin was a hassle, cause every time I updated the scripts, I needed to create new Pastebin links. Sometimes I fucked up and didn't open an Incognito window in Chrome to make the links, so they referred back to my actual Pastebin account (oops). I try to avoid that cause I don't want to get doxxed.

This week, I decided it was time to stop dicking around with Pastebin and just upload my scripts to GitHub (which I have done). This is more comfy, cause not only are the links persistent, whenever someone visits them they automatically get the latest version of everything. Plus, I can update the whole Git repo (containing all my scripts) with a single command (I created a function in my ~/.bashrc for that). I have the scripts I want to share hard-linked from my ~/bin directory to a sub-directory, which is my local Git repo. I tried using symbolic links at first, but apparently those don't play nice with Git. Lesson learned.

Anyway... Now my problem is that I want to somehow reach all the people that got my scripts from my old torrents. I want them to be able to find and access the updated versions. How would I go about this? I'm sure there's an interesting and creative solution to this conundrum, and I would appreciate your input.

I think I will put a link to my GitHub repo in future torrents, instead of bundling the actual script files.

Good to see you, RobertX! I miss this community, I just forget to come here for some reason. Good to be back! I'll try to check back in more often. In any case, I need to do that cause I'm interested to see what becomes of this thread.
I miss you, we all miss you, but, most of all, the Void misses you!

Ha ha. I need to pay a visit to that cesspool right now! Cool
What attempts did you make to solve the problem.?
Can you share the attempts.?
I'm still stuck in the planning stage of this. I haven't got any solid ideas yet. There must be a way...
consider adding .gitattributes
