Not yet... But I believe in this community. The worst scenario is having your ftp server spread around forums that you don't even know and not receiving any donations for their bandwidth use. :(

Donation counter now counts to RAID controller Adaptec RAID 6805, which will, in the end, allow me more space and reliability, while keeping everything on one virtual disk. That is there will be no "Disk 1", "Disk 2", .etc. It costs around $460 in USA and almost $700 in Russia. I'm setting the counter to $500.
If you have any questions or suggestions - feel free to ask or suggest.

Для активации попдиски нужен аакаунт PayPal (пока альтернатив нет, но некоторые варианты рассматриваются). Подписаться вы можете, выбрав соответствующую опцию в настройках вашего аккаунта или по ссылке - http://a12.net.ru/payments.php
Счётчик пожертвований теперь считает в сторону RAID контроллера Adaptec RAID 6805, который, в конечном счёте, позволит увеличить место на сервере, его надёжность и избавиться от "Disk 1", "Disk 2" и прочих, так как всё будет хранится на одном виртуальном диске. Оно стоит порядка $460 в США и почти $700 в России. Я выставляю счётчик на $500.
Если у вас есть вопросы или предложения - можете спрашивать и предлагать.

Dear users, I'd like to inform you, that A12 and DarkSteam are going to join forces in terms of providing you with Steam games. We can't provide you with any details at the moment, except for the fact, that we'll try to roll out a test version of DarkSteam application for "closed" testing till the end of year.
In terms of A12 files and premium use, Disk 1 will be available for registered users with no restrictions on files' count, but with speed limits (perhaps, a bit stricter, than current), and Disk 2 (that is all owned games) will be available only to several specific groups (details will shared later).
I will keep you updated on this.

So... Haters gonna love it. Here's what I just posted on website in it's "closed" message.
Dear users,

Valve has come. Turns out they were checking out the service a few months before I turned it to full premium, deciding what to do with it. When it turned full premium they started thinking faster. And then at the end of last week they contacted me. And the fact, that service was temporary shutdown seems to be one of the reasons I'm not loosing my huge account in Steam.
We are currently negotiating final terms of our... "agreement". But what I can tell you already is that the service will be going down permanently. What will happen to me in the end - is not clear yet, but seems like Valve does not intend to make this public. Thus one point of our agreement is that I do not disclose any more points of our agreement even when it's ready. One of the obvious reasons is that no one will believe it this way, which will provide Valve somewhat of an alibi in case of developers\publishers complaints.

So... It was fun while it lasted. Thank you for your patronage. And I did warn you not post videos on Youtube...

Either way the site will stay up with this message for a week or two then it will be turned off completely. This message will be also posted on other related forums..
Sources of the service can be found here - https://www.mediafire.com/?iq2ephc364s8my4

If anyone is interested service was restored as a "showcase" at https://simbiat.ru/darksteam/api/dscmain.php (http://a12.net.ru also works). This one also has link to source code of the client, that was used back in the day.

The "newer" version of it, aimed to be more like a Steam's library and SteamDB alternative can be found here - https://simbiat.ru/silversteam/ssc/ (no downloads at all, and never will be). Gradually getting updated
