Main Source BBS

Been waiting through the archives of this BBS. I tried to make a filelist by extracting file_id.dizes but most/all the .dms files don't have one. The IBM archives do, as well as the text files (for the most part) so it almost seems that they were stripped. A shame, but anyway..

So what I did was to convert all the .dms files to .adf then ran them against tosec to pull out everything that's already out there. What was left was almost 1000 disks. What I've managed so far is below. If anyone wants something in particular I'll Zone it. Note: My tosec-fu isn't totally up to par, but it's a best attempt. I also know it's been awhile, and this isn't an attempt to say this stuff is zomg found rarities, but more what is in the archive.. If someone wants a list of what's in the archive that is already in tosec, I could make one.

The [a] folder are total alternates and not of great interest -- however, they are in their (potentially) initial .dms format. I'd say that's quite close to the initial disk, as opposed to an [a] with someone's high scores, or garbage data that was never written over and, at least in theory, perhaps a way to ditch so many of the [a]s that plague Amiga tosec (imho). (Conceeded, however, it's not 100%, and there rarely can be, so it may all be moot.)

I'll keep updating if there's interest.

Oh, like h(acked) and cr(acked) is there something for a group that just basically spread something? Or just use cr for that? And if this isn't quite in the right spot, please move it accordingly.
