Welcome to the Occult.Digital.Mobilization forums!
Within you will find a number of discussions, all of them ongoing, about various aspects of the occult and esoteric. Nearly every area of study is covered, with space for the few we may have missed. Whether you are a serious student and practitioner of the occult, or are merely curious about what the occult truly is, this is one of the most open places to discuss your interests.
Feel free to look around, and if you like what you see, register and start a topic in Introductions, telling us about who you are and why you're interested in what we have to offer. We encourage everyone to express what they feel, believe, have experienced or learned, or otherwise just know - even if it's "this doesn't work" - though giving some supporting remarks with your comments (i.e., "this doesn't work because...") is always a good idea.
Until then, go well, and may the Winds guide you in your Journey!
Enhancing The Release Index
Sun Sep 09, 2012 3:50 pm by sendoshin
OK, so all of this [ the items discussed at Assisting with the (digimob) Project ] came to fruition not long ago with the Release Index (see the navigation bar at the top of the page), but there are still some features missing. Since everything in the database was put there automatically, by script, and straight from the .torrent files, at that, there is no categorization (aside from file types), and no author info. It wouldn't be hard to automate this information going into the database in the future, but some sort of mechanism still has to be devised to make it work. And then there are the 12,310 files already listed that would have to be updated with the relevant info. So still a lot of work ahead to get all of this working well, but I think it might be manageable.
So the next step would be to figure out how to indicate the categories and authors in future digests. There are a couple of ways I can think of, some more difficult and involved than others, but I think the easiest would be to set up the folders into categories, for example:
From there, for the author name, I see two possibilities, both as easy to work with as the other. The first option would be to begin the file name with the author's name, much as has been done with prior releases, in a format like "Crowley, Aleister - Book of the Law.pdf" or "Gozaknee, Tanranin Uhcheek, Frater - The Red Planet Arrives.pdf":
This has the added benefit that the author is never severed from the file, but the drawback of having really long file names, which can be a problem on some file systems, such as DVD.
The second option is to continue the use of folders. Using the same basic format as above, with the difference that the author's name would be a folder name, so it would come out "/Western Inner Traditions/Fraternal Societies/Golden Dawn/Gozaknee, Tanranin Uhcheek, Frater/The Red Planet Arrives.pdf":
This only shortens the file name by two characters from the method above, but that may be all that is needed in many cases. The author is no longer directly associated with the file, but since file names can be changed after downloading anyway, that is not a great drawback. And credit is still given.
It may be obvious that I'm leaning …

Index Server Change
Sun Mar 27, 2011 11:13 pm by Admin
Once again we have had to move the index because the server it was hosted on decided to change their policy. The prior server is no longer hosted free of charge, forcing us to relocate. The Release Index link here at the forums will continue to be up to date as server moves are required, so instead of bookmarking the index itself, try bookmarking the forums and linking in to the index from here.
Of course, you could alternately just update your bookmarks.
If the index server is not working, give it a few minutes and try again. We do not have direct control of the server, so we cannot bring it back online if it for any reason goes down. There was a slight glitch during the transfer which blocked our access to the index for several minutes, but it was automatically resolved after a short wait. Please, enjoy!

Where is Submissions Digest #30?
Sun Apr 24, 2011 9:36 pm by Admin
Digimob is a quarterly-release group, but many of you may have noticed that two quarters have ended without a Release. Part of this is the fault of the current wearer of the hat of group Admin - namely myself, F.D.T. A combination of laziness, busyness, and lack of resources has gotten in the way, and for that I sincerely apologize.
However, another part is a general lack of assistance from the community itself. Live links are prohibited on the forums for two reasons: first, we cannot verify the legality of such links without extensive research, not to mention the applicability. Second, we prefer to share those works which qualify not only with members of our community, but with the world as a whole - which is why we opted to use Bittorrent as our Release mechanism. (There is also the technical limitation of using a free forum which doesn't grant us access to our forum database - if we get kicked off of this server for whatever reason, we may not be able to take your posts with us.)
So, the main reason I am not writing an article about having just released #30 is because we need your help. If there is anything in your collection which is not in ours (the Release Index was created to help check just that), please submit it for inclusion in our next Release. All you have to do is ZIP it up, upload it to a free file hosting site (there is a list here), then email the link to occult [ dot ] digital [ dot ] mobilization [ at ] gmail [ dot ] com. Our Content Team will download the files, check them over, and then include them in the next Release. If your files don't make it, wait to see if they show in the next Release before asking us what gives. We'll try to let you know if we can't include something because of legal limitations (this tends to be very rare).
If the time has not come to retire this project and give way to others, such as theoccult.bz (which has a high level of interest among members of this site), we will continue to do our best to provide what service we can. However, without your help, we will never be able to pull it off.
Go well, and may the Winds guide you in your Journey.

Several of you will have noticed already that digimob.tk is no longer working. This is because the government of Tokelau has decided that digimob is a "special" domain, and wants to not only charge us for it, but wants to charge us more than the regular going rate for paid .tk domains. (In case you weren't aware, .tk means the domain was registered through the Tokelau government domain registrar, since Tokelau considers itself too small to really make any money from their country code without letting the rest of the world register there cheap. But that gets rather technical rather quickly.) Since we are a volunteer-run organization, we cannot afford to purchase the digimob.tk domain - and beyond that, once we start spending money on this, it stops being what it is, so we try to avoid paying for anything at all if we can help it.
All of this is a wordy way of saying digimob.tk is no more. Please continue to visit the forums by going to http://digimob.forumotion.net/ as you have been, and pass this URL to anyone who asks. We can't update the notes in the Releases, so there will still be many who cannot find us without your help.
