New Amiga adf website launched !

Having looked at Killer Gorilla's whdload packs, I though it would be nice to set up my own page, but dedicate it to adf disk images instead...

I was a prolific mailtrader during the early 1990's, and have just put up my disk collections online. Their are 1514 disks I've adf'd and uploaded which cover games and document disks ! The site has taken over a month to set up. This evening the site I've completed at last. Phew !

The site is with a free hoster and they are quite strict about inactive sites. I need at least ONE visitor to the site a month to keep the site online. So please visit as much as you can !

Here's the URL: http://www.amigagames.freeoda.com

Enjoy ! :-D

While I am very grateful for all the effort you've put in, there really needs to be more information about these files. At a bare minimum, who they're cracked & trained by.

Just found some 'hidden' info about the images : http://amigagames.freeoda.com/games/
Agree that the info should be added to the entries. There's a typo on the Alcatraz entries btw.
Also 'Action Stations (disk 2)' only has 829 KB and Alienator only 91. Not sure if that is intended.

Well, the 'cracked by' and 'trained by' information I already had typed up. I didn't include that though as it is a huge pain cutting and pasting everything into HTML tables, unless somebody knows an easier way...

Well spotted ! I'll correct that minor error this afternoon.

Edit: These errors are now corrected.

@easier way
PHP and a database I think even most CMS should be up to the task.

Next goal is to get my PD and utility disks online. However, that project is on the backburner for the meantime until I have the time which I'll upload at a different domain.

Please keep visiting folks, as I need at least one visitor a month to keep the site up and online (it's at a free domain), also it'll be nice to see my hit counter going up

Does that apply to both sites? If I bookmark them, I'll probably take a look more regularly than once a month to keep you in business.

No, it just applies to my amiga games site.

Thanks for that, mate! TBH, I'm more interested in your other site, as I'm more of a power user than a gamer, but I'll visit the games site as well to keep your hit counter active.
