Here you can give the Guardians team some feedback about the project, what are the things you like and don't like, suggestions on how to make it better, or even contribute to the project. On our side we will keep you posted on changes to the website and our future plans, we will also do our best to answer all the questions that are posted.
The success of a preservation project like Guardians will largely depend on how it recieved in the ST community and how much support we get. So please take time to comment and even contribute so we can preserve our beloved computer for generations to come.
The address of the site is: http://www.guardiansofthepast.co.uk

Thanks and keep up the great work!

I have quite a number of ST magazines (lots of ST Format, ST User, Zero but a few others too) and a brand new scanner if you would like some scans of reviews/features etc. Just let me know what size or dpi or whatever and where to send them. Also, would you be interested in preserving whole magazines (a la HOL's Amiga Magazine Rack)? I would be more than happy to contribute to such a section.

Though I don't have any real experience scanning magazines/books/etc.
We would welcome any contributions to the project. I think the best way for you to start is to check out the Guardians entries for software you want to scan, if we don't already have it then please feel free to scan it and then send it us. We will accept scans in any lossless format, but preferabbly PNG format since this is what we use for preservation. But if you can't save using PNG then use something like TIF and we will covert is ourselves. Also, please scan at 200 DPI and no less or more. We will also require the magazines name, the date published, and issue number if it has one. Finally we will need your name so we can credit you on the Guardians site.

De-screen seems to blur things a little, is this desirable? (Everything is still visible though, you can even make out individual pixels in the screenshots!)
There is a problem, however: Atari Forum only allows attachments up to 300kb, and the file is over 4mb! Will the FTP be up soon, or would you like me to email it to you?
