This is an archive transfer project that I started back in
November of 1996 and have been active in the coordination of to make
the entire AOL Apple II archives (which were useful and still
functionable - without duplicates) available to the Apple II
Internet users FREELY - via the Ground Apple II public ftp
site. Arrangements were made with Steve Nelson - ISCA Apple II
Librarian, the Ground site Adm., the staff and Adm. of AOL, with
Rubywand, CJ Redwolf, and several others who have commited to help
with transfering the AOL Apple II archives - along with me. As of
this date - all of the remaining, useful and functional AOL Apple II
archives and files have been transfered and saved.
During the past weekend AOL made some nice changes to the Apple II forum and archive general area for its service to members. A new and much improved interface was made.
Keyword (Apple-K) list for accessing it was also changed from the old: appleii
to the new: aol://4344:1264.a2main.10029531.514525857
An estimated 251MB's of (useful and still functionable) archives, files and graphics have been transfered now and are currently either on the Ground ftp site or stored on media backup devices for eventual transfer, permanent archive storage and access to the Ground ftp users.
In the course of the next several weeks, most of these archives will be evaluated, sorted, tested and then moved to the locations noted below on Ground. After all the transfers are made to Ground, Steve Nelson will be moving them all to their permanent locations on the Ground ftp site. They currently reside in the incoming/AOL folder.
