Single title torrents have been moved into their respective main category.
There’s been a few renames to match categories. And dates in the directory name has been removed. Updates can now be tracked by the in dir version file.
The following torrents has been updated:
To update your library simply remove the torrents from your program, keep the data.
Rename the folder “RCEU-8-Bit_Commercials_(Update)_(2018-01-07)” to “RCEU-Commercials_8Bit_(2018-01-20)”.
Rename the folder “RCEU-Hardware_Amiga_(2017-10-07)” to “RCEU-Manuals_Hardware_Amiga”
move all content from “RCEU-Hardware_Amiga_*” and “RCEU-Manuals_Amiga_Hardware_*” into “RCEU-Manuals_Hardware_Amiga”. (there aren’t that many files).
In the future, whole sections won’t have a date stamp in the folder name, but will have a text file with the date, this way you won’t need to rename the main folder, but still keep track of what you have stored.
Download the new torrents. And please keep seeding.
If you donate to Archive.org right now, someone will match your donation 3 to 1.
Please consider doing so.
EDIT: seems like the 3rd party donator reached their goal. The message is gone now.
We’ve started adding the sections to be downloadable using torrent network. Big thanks to AmigaCity, for allowing us to use their tracker.
Not all sections have been added yet, but they’ll come slowly. The reason it takes time is that since when we first started doing scans till now we’ve learned better ways to make the publications. These improvements will get added to the existing publications when possible. But they also take time to do.
What is torrent? – Torrent is a peer to peer network which can share files, so if you download from the site using torrents you’ll get access to larger bandwidth than just the webserver. Most torrent clients will give you a choice on what to download, so if you only want one publication, you can click on the torrent, open it with your torrent client, and deselect all other files than the publication you want, and at a much higher bandwidth than just the regular download.
Due to many updates we’ve decided to only make section updates (everything on that page/section i.e. Amiga Hardware) every 3 months or so, so a new publication will have it’s own torrent. When the quarterly updates happen, all the single publication torrents will get merged into the section torrent, and the single torrents will get removed. This schedule might change.
After downloading, please continue seeding.
I’m sorry that I don’t get to make so many scans these days.
Due to some things happening in my personal life atm, this of course takes a lot of my time.
It doesn’t mean that I’ve stopped doing scans, as you might have seen, I’ve acually gotten some help from Laxity/Martin Sørensen. So you’ll see some updates from him from time to time.
I’ll try and make atleast 1 or 2 updates every 14 days.
I’ve just added the Wipeout 2097 for Amiga music on youtube.
As you might have noticed, the site was down from Thursday night till sometime today. This was due to the ISP changing some equipment, and problems afterward getting a static IP. This resulted in a busy, and wasted weekend with lots of support calls, but now the site is back and up running.
We have been posting updates on Facebook, so if you feel left out, I suggest you go and follow our facebook page.
I found a new program -that I’m testing- to process OCR on PDF’s, the resulting searchable PDF’s are smaller using this program. For now I’ve finished 8-bit Books and Amiga Books. It costs around $70 which is a good price for what I’m looking for in a PDF program.
The two Abacus books which are available were approx 600MB each for the searchable PDF’s, now they a just a tad larger than the original, so 100MB and150MB respectivly.
I’m also in the middle of slowly switching the layout. giving the oppertunity to add more info for each publication. So far the Misc books sections have been changed. I hope you like it.
Something new is that fulltext files of each pdf are also being added to make it easier for search engines to parse the files.
I’ve created an article on how to take pictures of boxes that are too large for scanners.
It can be found from the Tutorials menu -> Take pictures of boxes.
