Post Amiga Shopper - Complete collection OCR

Amiga Shopper

Every issue of Amiga Shopper is available as torrent download link, after a scan and OCR marathon by fabwhack at:

http://retropdfs.wordpress.com/

Thanks should go to him for this (and any of you who can afford it - send him a thank you donation, a new scanner will probably have to be bought soon as the one used is probably worn out)

D'you mean you can't download the .torrent file?

Yes, when I click the link to download the torrent it seems like it is taking my browser off to the PB site and I get a message saying error - site blocked ( I read that BT has blocked it)


By the way - what's a magnet torrent?

Guess I could check some other torrent sites to see if they have it listed - be quite good to have those Amiga Shopper mags...

Downloading fine via utorrent and then my virus software reports a virus called js/Heur on issue 35 - I cancelled the download - will try again tomorrow, weird it should have a problem with issue 35..?

That's strange... I've not heard of a .PDF triggering a virus alert before!

I hope you can find a way round that, mate.

Downloaded it yesterday and read the preview and issue 1, great stuff.
I get no virus alert Peter, just did a manual scan using Avast and nothing came up.

Then use one of the many re-direct sites like http://piratereverse.info

Rather than using a torrent that takes forever to download (15 days for me it says) due to only having 3 seeders at the time of writing, why not send your hard work to archive.org?

They already have complete collections in PDF etc. for CU Amiga and many other retro mags:
