    Mindy and I are doing some room cleaning today.

    Just found a COMPLETE package for Aldus Freehand v2.0.

    Docs, discs (3.5" floppy), advanced technique flip cards...you name it...it is ALL HERE!

    Mindy and I no longer need it.

    We are willing to give the entire package up to the first person willing to pay postage.

    How can you say "no" to this?

    Serious inquires only please!

    I don't think I've got a computer with a floppy drive in it any more.

    Nice gesture, though! Hope someone takes you up on it.

    The only people who will be able to run that don't yet have an Internet connection, so they won't be reading your post!

    Actually...

    no

    but I did find an advertisement in some ClarisWorks stuff for some sort of Beagle Brothers MacroMaker.

    I had a lot of Beagle Brothers stuff when I used Apple ][ computers.

    Three of those turned up.

    Mindy looks at them and says, "Huh?"

    Mindy is a bit younger than me.

    Is Freehand a kind of cheater's Shorthand?
    I learned that--which is largely writing phonetically and eliminating most vowels, so you can writer faster.

    Freehand is sort of like Illustrator...but probably not as good...it won the Darwin Award and just sort of went away.

    If you know what I mean!

    Today, I referred to Pages as the best of the modern world and a throwback to pagemaker 3.0...

    If only there was WriteNOW! 2011, I would buy it in a a second...

    Penny I hadn't thought about BeagleWorks.... since last week, when I met someone who was keeping one old machine that had Microsoft works 3.0, Beagle Works and Clarisworks 2.0....

    The triumvirate! amazing to think of the world as it was in 'the old days'

    I have 100+ 3 1/2 inch disks kicking around somewhere.. Used to own a BBC Micro computer which used those + casettes which took like an hour to load.. It was cool at the time, but I wouldn't EVER want to go through using one again for anything beyond nostalgia's sake.

    8bit, 32kb RAM, built like a tank (the casing was metal). :D

    It's funny how you can look back on something and miss it but be really really glad it's behind you.
