Sorry, a little bit off-topic, but i am somehow proud of it!
I have ordered a new floppy drive at amigastore.eu, my old one was broken, today arrived and now built-in.
It seems to work well and i am happy to own fully working A1200!
I want to become as famous as SimonV and Steffest, you can now send me your undumped floppy disks!

Great.

Don't expect me to give you my disks.

You can lend me a KryoFlux if you have one though. :P

Third post of mine in a row, sorry (but in my defense, two weeks after the first).
Curious, I am confused, are specific people cleaning the (frozen to 25%) dumps?
Someone cares to elaborate what this cleanup consists of?
Am I right in the following?
- Match with TOSEC (and the BS1 collection itself) to find duplicates. (and eliminate?)
- Check for vira. (and clean? or flag and leave as is?)
- Rename to more legible name. (maybe TOSEC style?)

Thanks.

Cleaned part 44 and 45 have been added today

Cleaning consists of
  • Virus removal
  • fixing bad sectors
  • deduplicating
  • renaming

The cleaning is done by 1 person (Denis Lechevalier)
That's why it's taking a while.
So no need to check in ever day :-)

Take the next two weeks to go through the 26 pages of this thread instead of trying to stress 'dlfrsilver' . As we say in French : "patience is the mother of all virtues"

...you've clearly done your job then; well done!!!

Back to planet Earth, so what's with the urgency / badgering every few weeks then?

It took SimonV / Steffest / others some time to initially image all this the hard way... and we are very lucky that this even got uncovered to begin with.

It's now preserved in "original" state; which you already have complete access to

...so going forward, it will take consideringly way more time for everything to be cleaned / fixed / renamed / TOSEC'd / etc.

Just chill out man, patience is a virtue.

...and if you're really that impatient, then the least you could do is try to assist somehow.
