Terry Green PD

I was going through some old discs and came upon a backup of a PD library. The only identification I could see was the name "Terry Green", but I don't recall it from back in the day.

Anyone know him or his PD library?

In any case, it's going up on archive.org as we speak...

No idea if the PD library is really new


Anyway, can you offer on the file server of eab a download as single zip for the whole library of disks ?


Thanks, chip

Feel free to mirror them here if you like. I haven't been through every disk so I don't know if there is anything new or any gems there.

If you have more Amiga stuff, especially PD, it's worth getting on archive.org. It's just safer that way, they have industrial level backups and hosting.

Thanks. I wonder if these would be worth putting on Aminet? The issue is getting the descriptions for Aminet.

Terry Green posted once to the Amiga newsgroup alt.sources.amiga in 2000

https://groups.google.com/g/alt.sour.../c/c_B2wV2uYNc

It is 22 years ago but his email addresses were :

tg_pd@hotmail.com
terry@tgpd.freeserve.co.uk

The website(s) is gone but it was partially preserved by Archive.org including a full catalogue listing.

Send a message via ICQ to Predseda
On that webpage fragment there is one more additional email:

tmmc@tgpd.fsnet.co.uk

But at that time he was offering his Amigas for free, so probably the continuity is lost for a long time.

I noticed that some DMS files were damaged, I could not repair all of them but those that could be repaired are in The Zone!


Other DMS files are buggy and cannot be decompressed properly (DMS does not like FFS disk)... In the next update of ADF-Workshop, most of them can be decompressed cleanly

Are you saying that conversion from DMS to ADF will be improved ?

I can add an on the fly correction of the "Terry Green PD" DMS files to allow decompression to the original. ADF-Workshop already does this for other DMS

So, it's not a "general" modification of the conversion procedure, isn't it ?

Indeed, no miracle here, it is a work of correction 1 by 1

I have corrected 28 DMS for the moment.
My process is quite long and in the end, I haven't had time to review the content yet
