    Talking Spoils

    Today I was tasked with cleaning out a certain cupboard at school which contained a number of old computer items...

    • 10 5¼ floppy disks (blank)
    • 6 Windows 3.1 5¼ floppy disks
    • 2 shrink-wrapped copies of Windows 98 (not SE)
    • Encarta 99
    • Microsoft Works 4.0
    • Accounting software (also on 5¼ floppies)
    • 2 200W PSUs
    • 3 dot-matrix ribbons (sealed)
    • Those old white speakers that sound like ****


    ...and some Sound Blaster disks, HP printer disks and documentation.

    Unsurprisingly, everything was in near-perfect condition

    No trees were harmed in the making of this post but a few electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

    I have the contents of that cupboard in my garage. Unfortunately computer stuff is so mass produced that it will take many a year to be worth much both historically and financially. The Floppys are good tho!

    I've still got some Commodore C>64 floppy drives - well, two are official C>64 and the other is an after market version.

    Let me know if I should FAX them to ya! (Sorry - I couldn't resist that!)
