You can move the ISO files now as they are complete, I have just uploaded the BBS file listings. I'll upload the entire BBS in .rar files over the coming days. I just have to watch my bandwidth as I'm also dragging about 15gig a day of .flac files from Russia as that's my main interests these days.

DAT Tape 1 fully Uploaded this can now be Moved to BBS It's labelled as AMIGA1
I have also uploaded 'How I did this using Linux.txt' I really would appreciate if we have any Linux experts on here for some one to read it, as AMIGA2 DAT Tape has some missing files I can not recover the txt file explains why I can not recover them. Maybe we have some one clever enough to solve my problem? In Total there will be 6 DAT Tapes I will try and do one each day.

They have sat in the Attic for 22 Years, I'm 60 years old now, so they would just have all got chucked in a skip in the next 20 years or so. I feel it's better they belong with a community that will enjoy them I just found a Hellfire 96-97 CD that some one sent me years ago I will upload that at some point as well.

I'm finding the BBS Folder on the server a bit confusing.
I would Class Boondox, Gurus Dream & The Boiler Room as BBS as you can see the Ami Express /X File Listings with Upload date P (Passed etc.) So you know the filenames are correct nothing has been altered. But some of the other stuff I would just class as Collection not BBS as they are not in BBS format. I have not looked at everything yet but that's my observations so far, does anyone else have any feedback on this?

i agree, i'm just in the process of grabbing a lot of this for myself and those 3 collections seem to be the best source. Will definitely take a look at what you've uploaded too.

as a side note, I remember cement city well. My memory is a bit vague from so long ago but I think i bought some hardware from you as well. I don't remember exactly what it was but i do remember upgrading from a 1200 to a 4000 and various other bits to go with it over a period of time, a multiface 3 serial card, a scsi card and an excalibur 040 card - so it would probably have been something along those lines.

PS thanks for uploading this for us all
