Belgian Amiga Computer Club (La Charlemagnerie) - Lots of ISO files from BBS'es

Hi guys,

Thanks to GothDevil from the AmigaImpact forum, I was able to get my hands on many cds from a Belgian Amiga Computer Club (La Charlemagnerie).

I have imaged all CDs that did not seem to be available anywhere else and uploaded them to EAB's FTP: ftp://grandis.nu/~Uploads/Crown/

A few things worth noting:
- They are files that were downloaded each month from the major BBS'es and compiled on monthly CDs;
- Whenever the CD name was very different from what was labelled on them I added both names via the usage of "aka";
- They were mostly dated from 1995 to 1999 so no old files to be found;
- Whenever a CD was faulty I did a zip file instead with ALL files that were readable on the CD (it happened 3 times);
- The content was kept as is and I did not do these compilations in the first place so I am not responsible for anything you'll find there.

Enjoy and thanks again to GothDevil!

Wow, that's awesome, thanks!

Could we maybe split up the whole collection among various users and produce file listings for all of those? I don't feel like downloading 70 ISO images myself...

My pleasure Korodny,

I get your point, it was a pain uploading so...

Btw, almost ALL CDs have .txt listings

Always nice to have these collections. It is incredible that there are so many applications be it demos/software that was never mainstream yet provided on BBS/PD disks! Thank you!

Lesta SMSC: You are right, BBS's, and traders in general, have done a lot for preserving demos and software.

@Sandancer, my pleasure dude.

Yes, a friend of mine released a tool a few years ago for PC: http://amp.dascene.net/downcount.php?idx=6

But most of the ISO files I uploaded do have listings available

AHha, I had myself a great time when the BS1 disks were resurrected.

Thanks for the kind words Kox & Viceroy!

Thank Crown

...thread moved here i.e. the Misc > Collections section.

Also updated the thread title

Finally, I guess I should move the files from ~Uploads/Crown --> Commodore_Amiga/Collection/BBS/Belgian Amiga Computer Club?

@DamienD: thanks for your help. Sure, go ahead.

@IcyCool: thanks buddy, it seems that many files come from the Nothern Palace, a Danish BBS
