KWEST Public Domain discs are being copied

Post by rcamp48 »

:D :megaphone:
I I am nearing completion of copying all of that incredible find that my friend made, ,the KWEST library, KWEST stands for Kitchener Waterloo Atari Eight Sixteen Thirtytwo, an Ata r users group from the mid 80s till the mid 90s, it was based in my home town of Kitchener Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. I have been copying both sides as they were flippies, using my new Xformer cable and Darek Mihocka's Quick Transfer Utility 1.5 on my Atari Mega ST4, and my 1050 disc drive. I just picked one up in excellent condition and there is only 3 bad disks out of 125 disks. know its slower than an SIO2USB device, but I have yet to receive mine. I will uploAd them all later on today in both XFD and ATR formats, some 200'images, that will be 400 images if I uploAd both formats. Also included is the KWEST library disk from April 90, I assume the last date that KWEST put out 8 bit disks before they went ST. Send me replies if Yuri want I will still be online until 8:30 Eastern time. Russ

Here is the complete KWEST library for anyone that wants it, along with an index, note that I am redoing it in order, all disks have been renumbered, the original order nwas kept as much as possible, but some of the missing numbers hve been filled, I will archive them all tonight, and do an index that is compatable with the disk numbers, but for now here is the old zip file for those who want it right away, along with an index of some sort.
