What’s New at the Ol’ Salt Mines —
Hey there! Haven’t really talked in a while. Been pretty busy.
What with? Oh, speeches, presentations, editing and shooting some movies. You know, the usual?
How’s that archive.org thing doing for me? Oh, it’s doing fucking awesome, trust me. Best job I have ever had. Great folks, great stuff.
What have I been up to there? Oh, this and that.
- 100+ issues of BYTE Magazine.
- Hundreds of Laptop technical manuals.
- CU Amiga Magazine.
- Amiga Shopper Magazine.
- Plan B Magazine.
- Page 6 Magazine (1980s Atari magazine)
- 300+ Military Manuals!
- Helped put up the MUSOPEN 2012 Music Collection
- …which was cool but also all the raw recordings too.
- All of Google Groups’ file collections they deleted.
- And of course flung a couple hundred hours of DNA Lounge music nights up.
Other than that, not much. Oh, but my buddies have been SUPER busy.
- 4000 DOS Games courtesy of a site called DEMU that’s hosting with us now.
- All of MobileMe. Burp. Just a mere 286 terabytes of data.
- EVERY NEWS PROGRAM ON THE AIR SINCE 2009.
- Hundreds more CD-ROMs.
- All of the closed-down DIVX video sharing site Stage 6.
- Fileplanet. Remember fileplanet? Got it.
- This and that from the web, thanks to Archive Team.
Everyone’s got their nose to the grindstone. You know.
Hey, gotta go. Good talkin’ with you.

Thanks! Now I have 15 classic DOS game demos on my HDD and no time to play a single one.
Nice to see more computer magazines up. I recently got an Amiga and found the archive.org scans useful. Keep it up with the Byte scanning, I’m seeking an article out of a 1993 issue. I guess its a matter of time until it gets posted.
ZD recently posted up the entire PC Magazine archive on Google Books, but none of their other computing publications are there (like Windows Sources or PC/Computing). Too bad Google Book’s reader is kinda crappy. archive.org’s online reader is quite a bit better.
What about Pac*Man ….?
Ya got Pac*Man on that there watchacall yer Archive thing ther, huh?
n.b: Flightmare is from 1984, not 1980.
