I did not feel the need for a private reply.  I wanted to put my hand up 
as interested in the disks, but I /also/ wanted to make it known that I 
wanted someone else with a /need/ to have first dibs.  I was speaking 
both to Mike /and/ to the community at large.

Easy or hard has nothing to do with it when doing so is contrary to the 
objective, as stated above.

You seem to be assuming incorrectly.  I /have/ been keeping an eye out 
for DEC PathWorks for 5+ years.  I've not seen it when I've trolled 
various file / abandonware sites many times.  It's not uncommon for 
things to be added to sites in between such trolls through the inventory.

As for bitsaveers, I had not looked /there/ because in my head I 
associate them with /documentation/, and /not/ software.  So ... why 
would I look for software in -- what to me is -- a documentation repository?

Please don't assume that "someone hasn't even bothered to look".  As 
this is a perfect example if I have looked (in the wrong places) 
multiple times.

Also note that I did not broadcast asking for it.  I responded to 
someone offering a copy of it.

If you don't care about the thread, use your email client's ability to 
ignore the thread so that you don't see anything else from it.  Don't 
passively attack people that are participating in it.
