DIGITAL PRESERVATION / Re: My magazines (almost all in PDF format)
« on: March 21, 2020, 11:37:02 AM »
I went through the painful process of grabbing all of the Your Computer mags from the web archive. The complete set is now on my cloud.

Karl's been adding some gap fills to the collection. Once he's finished his uploading, I'll sort out a full list of what's in there.

Edit: List is attached below.

DIGITAL PRESERVATION / Massive set of NTSC PS1 images now on my cloud.
« on: March 03, 2020, 06:55:11 PM »
Karl's been a busy uploader last week as he uploaded a small tonnage of PS1 CD images (all are NTSC format). In the same area I've placed all the GameShark/Action Replay type CD images as well as that extra large set of PS1 IPF patches. Which will come in handy with all of the images that Karl's uploaded.

As soon as I can get a full set count and filenames list, I'll attach it here.

From now on, any new additions won't be on the RCM copy until we can sort out the NAS drives syncing between themselves.

1) Karl has added 10 issues of Oric Owner to the cloud copy

2) I've added the new Amstrad book (not by KH) to the pile. It was given away free by the author.

3) I've also added all PDF issues (in A4 and mobile-friendly formats) of the new-ish magazine 'The Classic Adventurer'.

Does anyone want the full set of MagPi magazines adding? They give them away digitally (via PDF) on their website, but don't want to get RCM into any bother.

DIGITAL PRESERVATION / SoftMODing tutorials on YT (various systems)
« on: February 26, 2020, 07:37:38 PM » - Xbox Classic using Rocky 5 softmod (requires an Xbox controller to USB adapter and a small flashdrive) - Same guy but covers how to upgrade the internal h/drive with appropriate hardware tweaks - Fat PS2 (same author as above videos) - Wii (Gamecube compatible version) with a portable HD added which has the covers on it etc. - Wii Homebrew etc. - DOSBox on Wii (inc. mods so that it boots straight into DOSBox on power-up)

Eventually these will be acquired as full videos and placed on my cloud drive, along with all the relevant bits and pieces. Some of which are already on the drive that Karl has loaned to me.

DIGITAL PRESERVATION / My magazines (almost all in PDF format)
« on: February 26, 2020, 07:51:57 AM »
I've left my home PC copying across all 8839 x PDF files for all of the magazines that I have found (so far).

This is, currently, exactly the same as what's on the portable 1TB drive that I've left behind at RCM for the time being. As and when the contents are copied onto the NAS, then I'll grab the drive back.

A test last night with Karl showed that if I share the folder, then anything and everything is available to download. Which is odd as the WD My Cloud software says that this shouldn't be possible as I'm just sharing a read-only link to that folder. Hmmm ...

DIGITAL PRESERVATION / Virtual Machine (VMWare / VirtualBox) images
« on: February 25, 2020, 07:32:21 PM »
In case anyone needs a Virtual Machine to play with an older version of Windows, the following are hosted on my WD Cloud device.

Windows 3.1 -
(d/l size = 51.6Mb)

Windows 95 -
(d/l size = 133Mb)

Windows 98 -
(d/l size = 190Mb)

Windows XP -
(d/l size = 1.44Gb)

Windows ME -
(d/l size = 507Mb)

Windows 2000 Pro -
(d/l size = 698Mb)

Better to leech them whilst I'm working away from home during the week :)

Cheers Andy.

I'm still in the process (when I'm actually at home) of copying all of the .ISO files from Karl's 2TB hard-drive onto (one of) my WD Cloud 8TB drives.

In theory, once I've found some way of automating the shared links, I'll be able to offer up any of the content. Bearing in mind they're large files (in general) plus I'm limited to what I can upload by my Virgin connection.

What will follow will be Perfect TZX files (so you can recover any Spectrum tape by converting it back to a .WAV and recording it over an original, but non-working, tape.

Likewise with Kryoflux/Greaseweazle/SCF images of floppy disks for the same reasons as above (but you will need the extra hardware to write them back).

Donation done (for myself & Eleanor)

Put myself and Eleanor down as tentative. Her calendar says we're free that weekend, but you never know between now and then :)

Just going to pay for myself and Eleanor. I'll be there with donations including the big Apple, some sort of touchpad/artpad and the Phillips G7000 that I'm picking up (tomorrow night) as part of my drone+retro gaming bundle :)

I am testing a game that will be published on it, but not an Antstream user as of yet.

FOR SALE / WANTED / Re: HELP with .p65 MAC Pagemaker diagram files
« on: October 04, 2017, 05:22:38 PM »
An alternative would be to set up a virtual machine that simulates a Mac from those years ago? Install Pagemaker (assuming you can find it) from that era and load in the files and save them out as whatever generic formats were available back then?

(Only an idea, just thinking out loud)

Not sure what I'll be doing with mine. Need to get both my DivIDE and DivMMC returned to Ben for fixing first though so that I can play around with them a bit more first.
