May I announce that the Wiki needs these disks? If we don't get them the existence of this site has no purpose (research etc, you understand), so please someone buy them and donate them to us (and by us I mean 'me')... :)

I'd like to have them, but postage will probably be too expensive... Would you care selling me some of it if you win them?

Bugger!

Missed this auction .... £50's not a bad price! Lots of last second bidders I see!

Did anyone here win it?

I did not bid on them because ynot.zer0 wanted them.

There are currently 42 auctions on UK ebay for 6 off 3" disks,  this may be the 150+ disks being split up and sold or not, but if you want some disks  take a look in vintage computing section, search for "amstrad cpc disks".

Hi All,
      just in case anyone's interested, there's another lot (67) of 3" Disks just arrived on Eeeebai (DE). They look like they're in good condition. They're not from, nor will I be trying to buy them.

Anyone from here hitting on them? I'd like some - or should I bid for the lot?

Cheers

I'm currently bidding for them (I did my bid before I read this thread), but it looks like they will go over my limit.
