    We have some more donations on the way, we can use your old drives.

    We also need new tapes for testing and cleaning tapes if you have any lying around.

    I have a PCI-E SCSI card you can have if you want it. Would work well enough with linux on a modern pc to dump the tapes to a raw format.

    As always, it will be a long process due to health issues.

    Curious on this, but would there be any way other members could assist Assembler with the tape dumps or some other projects he has? I'm sure he's weary on giving out the hardware and such as it might have sensitive material, however I'm sure it would be great to have the projects still going while he can still take care of himself.

    Well you've definitely proven that you're more than trusted, whether it be moderator status or how I know you a bit personally is besides the point :p

    So when it comes to trust I doubt there'd be any issue with you handling that, not sure how many other tape dumpers are around here...

    Its just a matter of the right time for everyone involved. Im confident it'll get done, eventually hah. We've waited this long, I think if the tapes don't work, it has probably been that way for years.
