Internet News   Internet News : Amiga Magazine Rack launched!
   posted by Duke on 8-Mar-2007 9:20:22 (2094 reads)
Finally after more than 2 years, Amiga Magazine Rack, the ultimate Amiga magazines website, has been launched!

Some interesting stats:

Total reviews: 29703
Total page scans: 21166
Total reviews with page scans: 12532

We are keen to fill all gaps in the site, so if you have anything we are missing (coverscans - eg CU May 1990, disk scans etc) please let us know!

Because the site is brand new, there are bound to be a few bugs! Please bear with us and we will try and fix them as they are reported. There will be a few more pages added over the next few days aswell.

The Hall of Light will soon have all the reviews for each game on the game information pages too.

One other thing to be aware of, to stop massive leeching you will be limited to 100 images viewed per day for the moment. We will monitor the leeching and tweak this when we find out how much of RCK's traffic it is chewing up! Please report any problems here for the time being!

On with the show! Enjoy!

Fantastic! Now I no longer need to lug around 1000's of Amiga mags everytime I move house. Gonna have a fine bonfire party tonight.

OH YES!!!!!!!!! this site rocks now I can free up some space by getting rid of some of my old Amiga mags (cept for my Amiga Active mags....they dont have any of the pages scanned in yet!)

If you guys need any of the mags to scan Ive got some you can have!

Bookmarked forever!


I'll look around for old scans. Still have a lot of "100%Amiga" cds. Will
that stuff qualify for your collection?

Great page!! Well designed, friendly navigation... Good work, page bookmarked.

BTW, I'll take a look, I have some old zines here, perhaps I can help.

Edit: it would help alot to know scan requirements...

Saluditos,

Ferrán.

Come on guys! Don't dump your old Amiga mags in a trash bin or have a bonfire!

Instead, offer them to someone who will come and get them. Some day someone will wish they had access to some of those mags.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Once the bugs & gaps have been filled, are there any plans to make this available on a DVD? Would be awesome

Just look at how popular the Total Amiga PDF CD was.

I've been considering doing a DVD (more like 3 DVD set) of my scans. But I've been afraid the copyright holders would come after me... Some of those people may still be around. I know Amigaworld's publisher is still in business.
