Yeah, this was us.

Good job, guys, for real. Real stuff on old computers have to be preserved :)

(coincidentally we now have a bunch of pre-release Amiga software :-P)
There's probably a lot of people here who you would make extremely happy if you fixed that. ;)
Also recently some guys are recovering Nasa images from 1966 magnetic tapes, which is also interesting and holy damn, the resolution?!

But yeah, if you strip away the layers of "journalism" around the actual thing, it pretty much makes sense. Also I learned about kryoflux which may be cool for finally getting rid of all the floppies lying around in various places :)

"the data was saved in an obscure format that modern Amiga emulators could not read."

This emulator must be shitty that it can't read .pic formats. :P

Yeah, this was us, the same crazy people who brought you a Lisa demo, and then when you didn't like the audio, built you a sound card :-) And the images literally were just PLBM without the header, took one of our guys about 5 minutes to figure out.

The problem that's making everyone click here seems to be the ammount of made up media shit all these articles have. Whoever wrote the original piece, saying shit like "obscure format" and "impossible to emulate" is guilty of all the "hate" towards this. The paper clearly describes how you worked and none of these ridiculous claims apear there, and NOT EVEN in the official Warhol Foundation press release. This was just some ignorant journalist trying to make things more dramatic.

How about that pre-release software then? Can we get a copy? :>

apart from geeks nobody gives a flying fuck if emulators could read floppies, or how obscure the format is, etc.

It seems in 2006 also some of Andy's work was discovered.

Took five years on Mac to recreate something which was done in a day on Amiga. Apple's marketing is/was obviously better than Commodore's.

Please zero out the Warhol works from the disk images and make the prerelease SW available?
