Hi all,

As you saw from Hayo's post, we're putting the listings online on the web site of MCM. Our primary source of the programs is the MCM disk archive on the MCCM cd that came with the last issue, 90. Unfortunately, there are some errors and omissions on that cd...

Can you help us?

What we need now is people who have the following original disks:
- MCM-D26
- MCM-D50
- MCM-G1 verzameldisk voor de spellen
- MCM-W1 verzameldisk voor de toepassinge
- MCM-A1 verzameldisk voor de Art Gallery

Do you have these original disks? Please contact me!

FYI, there is also an issue with the PD disks on the millennium CD from issue 31. It seems they got messed up and one is missing. See here for details:

Yes, that seems wrong. There's a complete list of PD on the MCCM cd too, see MCCM1/docs/manuals/mccm.zip - which also says the complete list is on B 69/1.
If we ever put these PD disks on the site, too, it would be good to have proper dumps of B8-B11, too.

Too bad, only have 58 till 80 (and some extra disks that belong to some issues).

Yes, I did and they also appear to be from the MCCM cd, so they have the same problems, unfortunately.

We're still looking for the mentioned MCM disks:
- MCM-D26
- MCM-D45
- MCM-D50
- MCM-G1 verzameldisk voor de spellen
- MCM-W1 verzameldisk voor de toepassinge
- MCM-A1 verzameldisk voor de Art Gallery
- MCM PD disks B8-B11

So please contact me if you have any.

Also, on my MCCM cd, the article of MCCM cd (the extra articles on CD) on Core Dump was a corrupted PDF file. Is that also the case for your cd? If not, please let me know, so we can use that PDF file.

Does someone know how to create a disk image of a single sided disk on MSX? Apparently getdisk.com doesn't work with single-sided disks...
