Today I’d like to tell you about a guy calling himself Dweller. He runs a blog called Dwellers Tech Musings, which can be found here.
Mr. Dweller was in a pickle, since he had an archive of about 5000 (!) floppy disks for the Amiga that he wanted to store electronically. After all, such an amount of disks takes up a lot of space. Converting these manually to .ADF’s would take many days (ages) of hard work. To make the process a bit easier, Dweller actually built a machine for this purpose. It is called the Floppy Autoloader.
Please have a look at the video below to see it in action:
Amazing stuff, isn’t it? 😀 It’s nice to see people taking good care of old software, so that it will be preserved for the future.
If you want to read more about the project, please head over to Dwellers Tech Musings by clicking here. There you ‘ll find information about the project from start to finish. Pure excellence. 🙂
