Second time of sending. A response, please.
While turning out my attic I unearthed obsolete *discs for a 1980s
Amstrad computer *which has long been disposed of. One disc is, as
far as I know, in mint condition but a further twelve contain
programmes. Another six discs contain long forgotten person data which
I can't access. I am intrigued to know what they contain. Also in my
searches I have found a *Microsoft Works
manual* complete with system discs, and an *Amstrad user's manual*.
Also about a*dozen 5" discs* containing stock records of warehouse
long demolished. Again, I am curious to see what I recorded 30 years ago.
I am reluctant to consign these items to the dustbin if a) the discs
can be deciphered, and b) they are are of use to someone else. Your
organisation has been suggested as a possible home for at least some
of these items. Are they of interest? If not, do you know any organisation
Are you actually on the mailing list, Bob? Your mail provoked a whole thread

You need to join the list to participate.

Unless you bcc'd him I suppose.....
