2011 Edition Download

As of May 5, 2011 the first archive edition of the History of the USAFA Class of 1964 was completed. This history may be downloaded with the link below. The download is 288 megabytes, which can take over an hour to download. Because this is such a long download, youy may want to do the test download below before trying the real one, just to work out the procedure, and make sure you can complete the unzip operation. You need 288 MB of space on your computer to save the download.

The download is a self extracting zip file. It will by default extract to c:\class64History2011. Once extracted, the history can be read by any web browser. Locate the file c:\class64History2011\home.htm and open it with your web browser. Enjoy.

This download may be burned to a CD or DVD on your computer. You are free to make as many copies as you wish for family and friends. If you do this, you may want to buy good archival quality media, available from MAM-A. Gold archive DVD's should last 100 years or more. These are far superior to the silver DVDs you can buy locally, which may loose data within 8 years.

You should select RUN, which will download the zipped files, then run the self-extractor. When the extractor runs, select Unzip, OK when it's completed the unzip operation, then Close. Locate the file c:\class64History2011\home.htm and open it with your web browser

The self extracting ZIP file should work on Windows sytems. For Mac and Linux you may have to use the zip file below and unzip it manually. The normal procedure is to Save the .zip file somehere on your computer, then run your unzip program (newer operating systems have this capability built in), and then access the unzipped files.

Test Download

The download and unzip process usually works flawlessly, especially on newer Windows systems. But many things can happen along the way, especially if you have third party security software. It can do such things as stop the execution of the self extracting zip, stop the writing of the files to disk, etc. So it is a good idea to run through the process with a test download. The test download contains only the first page of the full download. It is only 192 KILO bytes, so it downloads fast, and you can do the unzip and make sure it works before doing the long download of the entire history.
