After a couple year outage, the Hornet Archive is back up at its original location, hornet.org. The official hosting site for this archive is still at hornet.scene.org, but we may put some updated content here.
Thanks to Brett Neely (GD) for hosting a demoparty in the SF Bay Area this past weekend, and also for organizing the upcoming "demo kitchen" event.
Mind Candy Volume 2 was released last year.

May 13, 2003 - Major site revamp. You can now limit general searches to a single subdirectory. The Suggestions feature has been added to highlight some of the best productions. Browse ability lets you inspect individual directories via FTP (see the 00_index.txt file in each dir). Some of the site links have been replaced with graphical buttons. Search output has been reformatted for better readability. Mind Candy Volume 2 is on the way, and there are even rumors of a Music Contest 7 in the works.
See the excellent writeup on Wikipedia about the Hornet Archive.
The Hornet Archive was opened on Sep 4, 1992. It ran continuously for the next 6 years, and 16,234 files were catalogged (7.1 gigs in total). On Sep 22, 1998 the archive closed, and for the next several years was idle. And then Jim (our group's coder) decided to put together MindCandy, a collection of demos on DVD. On Feb 17, 2002 the archive was partially restored, and a new search engine was created. Thanks to scene.org for hosting this site.
This site is maintained by Hornet, a group which includes Andy "Phoenix" Voss, Dan Wright, Jim "Trixter" Leonard, Brett "GD" Neely, Pim "Stony" van Mun, and myself, Christopher Mann (Snowman, r3cgm).
Over the years, we produced several CDs: Escape (1994), Freedom (1995), Hornet Underground vol. 1 (1996), Hornet Underground vol. 2 (1997), Hornet MODs vol. 1 (1997), Hornet MODs vol. 2 (1997), and MindCandy vol. 1 DVD (2002). In addition, we've held 6 music contests. The web pages are still available for Music Contest 5 (1997) and Music Contest 6 (1998).
