Rhetoric disks other than the first?

I found first rhetoric disc on Muso's ORIC Site above. But only link to the the first disc is available. There are many interesting and rare files and games in other disks that I really wonder if we can reach today?

As I'm currently introducing my 6-year old to computing with his own Oric Atmos setup, I'd love to have these disks available right now .. I finally have a working machine with floppy drive, but not enough software in the collection to warrant a lot of serious fun at the moment - we are content with just typing stuff in that we find, and saving to disk, but these little software treats for the Oric would be the *perfect* thing for my son at the moment, he'd have hours of fun.

So thanks for pointing out that Disk one is available! We'll be playing with it in our next session .. ;)

Yup, it's a shame only disk 1 downloads. Would really like to see the rest of these.

Someone must have them somewhere...

Well, Steve (who was part of the Rhetoric adventure) sent them to me a few months ago and I was supposed to update Oric.org with them.
My bad, I really had too much things do deal since then to spend time on this but will do it, would it be disk by disk, as soon as I have enough spare time.

Yes, it's a very good idea is these wonderful things aren't lost.
It's quite the same for the mags like OUM.

6th disk was posted a while ago.
I'm still slow but willing to do things well. The challenge is to find back the exact release dates.
Steve and Didier sent me dates, but they didn't seem to mach very well. So I'm currently looking in old comp.sys.oric posts where Jim and Steve sent messages when mags were released.

I guess I have different dates because it certainly took months between the moment Steve began working on a disk, and the release date. I will try to find the release date.

On a more general side, it's amazing how memory can be erased fast - Rhetoric was published about 15 years ago and we lost track of the release dates!

PS: I will also have to detail the authors of the programs, so far I made a quick "various" entry to release the disks "faster" (I mean less slowly!)

You're welcome, you can thank Steve that reminded me I had some work here ;)

I sorted the dates from the disks 1 to 7, according to adverts or "I got my Rhetoric today" messages in comp.sys.oric long ago.
Also added Rhetoric disk 7 which is quite simply the Oric Giga Demo from 2001.

3 to go and it's done!

Is it intended that these downloads are not available - I don't see the download links for them on oric.org, just an entry in the database. If its only for CEO members or something: understood. But otherwise, maybe you're not aware the downloads are not activated?

Download links are enabled when you are logged-in (in top-right are user/pass fields).
I downloaded 1-6 and they are OK.
And thanks, Symoon!

Okay I once again seem to have been snarled by something .. I was logged in (showed my username in the upper right) but the icons for download were not visible. I logged out and logged back in again and it works. Sorry about that - dunno why it happens though. Cheers!
