52 scanned issues of "Australian Commodore & Amiga Review" magazine available for d/l

The total size of the archive is about 1.4Gb, the average size of each issue is about 25-30Mb. These have taken over 2 months to upload but are finally done. Available issues are from 1986-1996. All issues I have have now been uploaded.

http://www.deadwoodinc.net/amigan/acar/

If anyone has any "Not Available" issues could they please get in touch with me so that the archive can be more complete.

Enjoy...

Good work, an excellent contribution to the amiga community, pity those of use who still use amigas can't do a bloody thing with them as they're in a rar format that unrar doesn't know

How about a torrent seed of the full archive?

It looks interesting. Never seen the mag before. But it's laborious to have to download everything individually to check the contents pages of each one.

Nice job though.

Excellent archive, I had a few of these all gone now.

@Severin can you view pdfs on an Amiga?

If you use firefox, just use the Extensions Down Them All and you can leech them easy

I'm thinking of both the convenience of downloading with Bittorrent and also lightening the load on the current server. I don't mind leaving it available once I've downloaded it.

Cool. I've just found out how to do the equivalent of the downthemall extension in Opera. You just open the Links Panel, select them all, right-click and do "Quick Download".
Marvellous.

...if you like to have 52 html files that say "Permission denied", this technique is useful, indeed. ;-)

Thumbs up Considering Minuous uploaded VIA 56kbs

The critisism from some of you about NOT being able to HI SPEED DL the lot without a little work is IMHO a bit unfair .

The space provided for this project can support full speed downloads and the files I have downloaded from it are of great scanned quality.

This project like Peanut UK's Amiga Power site is but the work of ONE PERSON & having used Minuous's updated retro links site I know over time he will get round to addressing the issues some of you have raised .

The fact is he has publically opened the ARCHIVE WITH 52 full magazines WOW that,s a heck of a lot of scanning for sure

I for one wholeheartedly applaud this achievement that he has acomplished in under 3 months and know that over time the site will develop into a 5 star example of "HOW to efficiently Run a retromagazine website"

I publically promise to make available any increased online webspace Minuous requires as he adds the missing magazines as I can see this is a project with a VERY long way to go {if EVER } before it is complete

A big thank you to both Minuous for the files and woody for hosting em.

I grabbed these last night (took a coupla hours (with flashgot for firefox)) .. and i've had a read of a few today, they are great. I love reading retro mags, so interesting (even tho i'm old enough to have read them the day they came out (and did with UK mags)).

I'll glady help out with a BT of them if needed but i think woodys got the hosting sorted.
