Hosting Amiga related content?

Hi Guys,
I’m wondering if this site has permanent hosting for Amiga related files,
Or I should go to Sourceforge, Github etc.?

If you’re on the Amiga Facebook group you’ve probably seen it,
but I’ve modified some of the PS2 mouse to Amiga translator code
for pic micro to control Gotek buttons (or something else) with mouse button combinations.
Here’s the video detailing changes to software:

The left and right button presses are not sent to the Amiga when the middle button is held,
and instead, the extra outputs from the pic micro are sent low (or high depending on configuration).

So far it’s ported from 16F84 to 16F84A and 16F628A, and I plan to also move it
to a pic with an extra port such as 16F876 so one PS2 mouse can be switched between two Amigas
with a similar button combination.
Cheers, Art.

"permanent hosting for Amiga related files" = Aminet. We're soon celebrating our 25th birthday and we're currently working on making archive.org an official mirror. It doesn't get any more permanent than this.

If you're talking about open source code, additionally hosting it on Github or a similar repository might be a good idea. Make proper releases when you reach certain milestones, and upload those to Aminet.

Nice project, btw.

It's modification of existing GPL code, so distributing source code
with hex files for chips will be a requirement, hence the effort.
There are YouTube links and images to go with it.
Aminet does sound like a good idea. It didn't cross my mind at all. Thanks

A weird and useless demo of PS2 mouse converted for Amiga,
and also sent Human readable ASCII out of serial port into NComm.
