But I did mean an 'imaging' party, so yes people MSAing, fcopying, scanning, etc. It's probably a bit too much to ask Brume to travel over here just for that though

I wouldn't be against the idea of renting out some space somewhere for this and hosting it - I guess the biggest cost (to the visitor) would be staying somewhere, so cheap accommodation would be a must. But there's plenty of that around here.
What worries me more is that I know realistically each person could only probably image say 250 disks in one day, at a real push, with very few breaks! I have 2 STFMs, 1 STE, 2 PCs, 1 Mac, 2 scanners and 1 Falcon that could be employed into this task though
Hmmm.... from little acorns 'n all that.
