Here at Demozoo, we're all about making sure demoscene history is preserved, for future generations to enjoy and study. We do this in a variety of ways, by finding old software around the internet and making sure it is properly stored, mirrored and available for all.
Perhaps even more importantly, a few community members make it their passion to dump old media - and there's a crapton of stuff missing from the annals of history on all platforms. So, we are forever searching for materials to dump, scan and make available - from floppy disks, harddisks, zip disks, tapes and even disk covers and swapping letters.
We're dedicating the coming weekend to this endeavour, and hope to be sharing some of our enthusiasm and perhaps find some lost gems. We'll be hanging out in #diskdumping on our Discord server and perhaps a few of us will also be streaming some actual dumping? Drop in, hang out, and let's see if we can't help each other make more lost productions significantly less lost.
The long-running Argentinian demoparty took place online for the second year in a row, but that didn't detract contestants as the number of entries was really high - possibly the best output ever for a Flash Party. Oldschool, newschool, ANSI, ASCII, Flash Party has it all!
