Floppy disk Random Collection

Hi,

I have found a huge collection, a collection of collections, some adf rips from the owner, and a collection which is quiet big and needs some of the the disk sorters to take a quick look for any hidden / missing gems. There are DMS files, ADF files, there are lots of duplicates, there are TOSEC stuff, BBS stuff, stuff and old stuff from the old FTP? ... there is some warez. This is just a huge collection which has been built on for years ... unsorted.

Does anyone have any ideas what to sort for? I dont want to just mass upload duplicates, and especially warez.

If you want to take a look, and feedback here take a look in the uploads/Dozer folder.

Dozer has just listed everything contained on the EAB File Server at various locations in a .TXT file...

Yes; all this needs to be sorted as I'm sure there are gems to be found

Dozer isnt so familiar with TOSEC, as I mentioned its all unsorted.

I can get him to upload all and then let the master TOSEC people remove stuff as they see fit.

Not sure if I can get his folder locked down, as dont want to be sharing something without it be checked first. I would have to have a word with Turran.

Unless you have another idea?

Not sure what you mean?

I'm an admin of the EAB File Server, the only thing in the "~Uploads/Dozer" directory is a text file named "amiga_stuff.txt".

This is a file listing and points to various locations already on the EAB File Server

Sorry, I thought you was saying there was something in his text you wanted.

So, nothing is wanted?

One hour ago you inform about having something and one hour later already ask if something is needed.
And we are Sunday evening .

Yeah of course...

Just wanted to make sure I understood DamienD.
If someone in authority wanted a copy, I would ask Dozer to start uploading

Ill wait until a decision is made / authorised by the admins here.

Cheers

Oh I understand completely.

...but I think you're missing the point sTe.

Really hate to sound like a broken record but:

The only file in the directory "~Uploads/Dozer" is a text file named "amiga_stuff.txt"...

This is just a text file listing; and points to various locations already on the EAB File Server

There's nothing for "Dozer to start uploading"; as it's already there on the EAB File Server... that's what needs to be sorted.

Without no doubt it's really a big collection

But as DamienD said most of it is already on the eab file server

Personally speaking i checked the txt file and there's nothing i'm really interested in
