Now that all issues of MSX Mozaik are available, I would like to collect all listings that are inside. This is a shoutout. If you have any of these on your old disks, please send them to me.

I'm also thinking about how to share these and let others contribute. One possibility would be GitHub. Would it be a problem on that site that the files are not mine? Any opinions on this?

Good idea. And maybe on a broader level: there are quite a few magazines that had listings back in the day. Some of them have been released on disks or even cassettes by the magazines themselves, but other ones might not have been digitally preserved yet. The same questions for that as Briqunullus asks may apply.

Exactly. And I'm willing to do other magazines as well. But first let's get a good infrastructure for it. Any input on that is highly appreciated.

Github might seem like a good idea but I don’t think it is due to copyright issues (whether or not companies choose to enforce or not). Maybe TFH can add a folder and allow you guys to upload?

Sure I'd happily provide space for that.

I wouldn't mind helping out either. I guess we'll have to keep track somehow of who does what as well.

I help out with the TSX team, they use Trello for managing the work.

Thanks to Manuel we have made a flying start. I have quite a few listings from 1985 already. For now I have put them here. Please don't link to this page, its location may change.

Missing listings have been given a .missing extension. If you have those please contact me.

There are still many files left of what Manuel sent me, I'll post an update when I get another year done.
