Just curious: do you have any BBS-related materials from Action Annex? Copies of door games, VT-52 or ATASCII animations, text files, etc?
About 500 floppies of files. About 15 floppies of the 8 bit were mechanically toast.
About 50 floppies of the ST MIDI were screwy to the point that it is going to take a Kryoflux archival floppy reader to get the files.
There are MIDI files for ST. About 1500 files. See the catalog.txt
The catalog for the 8bit files has a list of titles from what I could read from the labels or the insert paper of the original disks. This also helps decode the short 8 character filenames is which song. The filenames for the ST MIDI conversion pretty much stayed the same.
The original .MUS files from the 8bit were converted and included in the ST archive attached.
A sprinkling of .CFM, mode 0, and lost of standard MIDI files.
I converted the AMS files to SAP format for pkey lovers on the PC/Mac/Linux.
Just the AMS 1, 2, and Midi Music System files for the 8 bit (3000+ of those. )
.MID files are standard MIDI files playable on ST, PC, or hardware/software that supports MIDI.
.MUS files play with Midi Music System 8-bit Atari version 1.0 or 3.0 or eqivalent. Can be ran in Altiris emulator with
.SNG format files are for EZtracker.

The original disks for the BBS software itself. Action Annex version 3.0 and 4.0 for the 130XE ramdisk. It appears to run under Altirra with some coaxing.
I worked on earlier versions pre-1986. It's basically an extended version of AMIS BBS. There is a story behind the creation on the document disk for the BBS archive, see the 8bit section when I get that done.
There was a 10MB Miniscribe hard disk drive that died before I got the stuff out of storage. Alas, I don't know what was on there.
Most of that "other" stuff was lost .... I loved the ASCII and ATASCII art of pinups when printed. :}
The Action Annex BBS was 10 blocks from my house, I spent many an afternoons or Saturdays on the sneaker-net and bicycle-net.
The original BBS Atari 800 with the 4KB SRAM mod for the assembler code for I/O still works. I booted it up, It needs a new top case though.
The BBS was moved to a 130XE with the Omnimon ASM debugger around 1986 The assembler code that Mike was working on. He fixed a bug in the Midi Music System. I have a typed letter from the author thanking him.
I have the source code for MMS, but haven't gone through it yet. I need to contact the author/company to see if it's ok to release it.
MMS 1.0 as a binary is included in the 8bit files archive.
The remaining hardware was sold off and two Amazon tablets were donated to the Sharehouse homeless shelter. A bunch of yarn scarfs and hats made from my ex-wife were made from Donna's leftover yarn and donated also.
