Well that brings back some fun memoriesSmile I used to order them from Educalc via phone. Took several days to arrive. Of course I also remember the 5-1/4" floppies used for the earlier disks.

RE: GD Disk
Oh my, this brings back memories! Each "Goodies Disk" collection was taken to Jim Carter at EduCALC in this form. This is actually The Original Goodies Disk #6!

People mailed me all kinds o' stuff on floppies, including the one below. I forget who sent it. Anybody recognize the handwriting?

Unfortunately I have no way of reading 5.25" floppies any more... not even this one, which apparently contains the HHC 1994 Programming Contest, sent to me by somebody. Anybody recognize the handwriting?

My goodness, this box even contains all the mini-floppies for WordPerfect for DOS and Bitstream's FaceLift / TrueType for DOS (a WordPerfect plugin), which I used for all my word processing needs back then. It's hard to part with things on which (and through which) you expended so much love and attention! Big Grin
