Magazine Cover Discs

Hi,

I've found my stash of Amiga magazine cover discs in the loft.

Other than scanning through them manually one by one, where is best to get an indexed list of these magazine cover discs?

Cheers!

Hi !

Do you mean the magazines or the CDs ?

About the CDs, before dumping those, you can check on eab file server

http://grandis.nu/eabsearch/search.p...xclude=&limit=

About the magazines you should check this site

http://amr.abime.net/

Regards, chip

Hi,

Thanks for the links.

I meant the Magazine CDs - whether they were indexed already so that you can browse/search through them easily, rather than having to browse through individual CDs themselves.

Maybe, like an online version of VVV (Virtual Volumes View):

Hi,

Thanks, the links will be useful for down reference.

However, I would still be interested if there was an indexing (of the CD contents) solution already out there somewhere.

IIRC the later versions of Amiga Format CDs included a full index of all the contents of the full set of AF CDs

Yes, I'm aware of that. I was just looking for an online version of it - so that you don't have to download/mount the image/disc itself.

Hey all,

Does anyone know who is the keeper of all the material for Amiga Format disks found linked on this page?:

http://amr.abime.net/coverdisk_index_4

Through all my sorting out of all my Amiga stuff, and organising disks, I have found at least one magazine disk which they are missing in the collection, and it's intact and original.

I've taken a .ADF copy of the disk and named it according to their naming convention.

So if they would like it, I can make it available for them.

I just need to know who to get in contact with. Is it "Zetr0"?

No, it's not Zetr0... he hasn't been seen on EAB for many, many years unfortunately.

Here is the AMR team: http://amr.abime.net/team

You should post this in a new thread under the abime.net - Amiga Magazine Rack section; and I'm sure someone will respond
