CPM programs available from PD libraries in the eighties/nineties - Video 1.

The first eight minutes of this video is spent looking at the disk catalogue (Parados/Amsdos) and displaying a help file. From 8:10 onwards NSWP.COM is used to Unsqueeze the files and more help files are displayed. The CPM programs on the disk are shown from 24:25 until the video cuts out abruptly at 36:49 (Video 2 tomorrow).

Hello,

For what it's worth, back in the 1980s, I got quite a few of the PD disks.   Maybe getting on for 50, never counted them.   Some system utilities, games, programming things (esp C), etc.   Quite a lot of things that I look at now and wonder - why the hell did I get this?

Still got all the disks.   They are 5.25", 40t CP/M format.   Some are the format for the disk drive for the HX-20 system I have, they are just a few.   Vast majority are the format for the 5.25" drive I got to attach as B: to my PCW.

I still get things off the disks from time to time, so far (touch wood) the disks always read perfectly OK.

Maybe I should just do a list of the disk names, there are lists on the web of these, with contents detailed?

Anyone interested?
