C64 Collections {at SceneBase} edit / delete

"On this page we have gathered together collections containing archived disk and tape images. ... The transferal work is undertaken by sceners (and non-sceners) who take the time to preserve their media collections and save scene history from magnetic bit decay and then share the results."

The Qube RiscOS Server edit / delete

A large collection of mods for the Archimedes, and a canned classic RiscOS distribution (including !Hamsters). I particularly like the mod that involves installing an Atari ST floppy controller in an A3000 to get HD floppy support!

Early micro with a colour display. This is a really interesting hardware design, with an unusual disk interface (abusing the test mode of a TI serial chip!) and Teletext-style graphics. Includes a Javascript emulator and a collection of disk images.

AMIGA RPI DRIVE edit / delete

I'd been wondering if you could use a Raspberry Pi for floppy archiving, by getting the DMA engine to sample an input pin. This appears to be doing the same thing in the other direction (emulating a floppy drive), so I'll add that to the to-do list...
