I spent some time processing most of the uploads to /pub/cbm/incoming and /pub/cpm/incoming. For the CP/M part, that was easy, since all files were uploaded by clueless w4r3z dudes who don't know that uploaded files cannot be downloaded until a maintainer has reviewed the file and adjusted the permissions. For the CBM part, there were also useful files. One of the most interesting programs is 71reads41back by Jochen Adler. It didn't work reliably on my C128D, and the documentation says that it can't read tracks 1 to 5. But anyway, this is very interesting: it is possible to read the rear side of a single-sided disk without turning the disk. I wonder when this will be the standard technique in two-sided demos. :-) There were also some interesting data transfer programs: cbm4linux (a Star Commander like program with a kernel device driver) and Over5 (RS-232 based transfer for VIC-20 and C64) for Windows and Linux. Also, some audio trackers were uploaded both for the C64 and the VIC-20. I need help from the audience in order to decide what to do with a file The file /pub/cbm/incoming/check/P500v1!.zip appears to contain a different version of the P500 ROMs. I have contacted the uploader but haven't received a reply yet (which is no wonder, since the file was uploaded almost a year ago). Could someone who knows this platform make some sort of analysis? According to a diff I ran on some hexadecimal dumps, the files are totally different from the archived copies.
