Compete with even invoice dating to 2002.. I was a RedHat 7 guy back then (ever since I moved to RedHat 5.2 from Slackware in 1998) but SuSE was always a good distro in my book, happy to own it.

Windows 2000 Server SP0 needs install floppies IIRC. You can't just boot the installer from the CD.

Yeah, or just copy the CD to your HDD (why you would do it any other way is beyond me)

I had that box in French, I already had a Windows 3.1 at the time so I saved some money by buying the upgrade instead of the full retail.
Received this french OS2 Warp 3 45-day trial disc:

Nabbed this at a garage sale. Don't think I've ever seen a boxed copy of Paint Shop Pro before. Not a particularly 'retro' version, but it does run on Win98; for $2 I figured it'd be fun to mess around with. Came with a super weighty manual and a ton of schlock-y 'special offers' in the box. No one ever claimed that $30 mail-in rebate, BTW.

I used to use the shareware PSP v2 or v3 a ton back in the day (until I pirated Photoshop 3 from school.) Never had a 'registered' version until now. :cool: This program is FIRMLY associated with the shareware/BBS/coverdisk days in my mind, so I thought it's kind of neat to have in a big box.

^^ nice, yeah I think I must have started with PSP2 & gradually moved on to v3 and then v4. I remember one major revision where they introduced editing features (not just convert/resize/crop/etc.) which hugely impressed me at the time.

PSP8 seems pretty good, I installed it on my WinXP mini-PC and was playing around with it. It even has some functionality that Photoshop doesn't, including reading & writing legacy image formats (LBM, PCX, Amiga IFF) which is useful to me. Shame it never really got a hook in the industry for "professional" use. Interesting history behind the company too, it was essentially a one-man project for a lot of time until it really took off.

In other news, I went to a couple charity shops in an area I don't usually go to today, and found this gem for two dollars. Somehow I keep finding these. To be honest, I mostly just pick up stuff like this so I can scan the docs & image the disks for more long-term archiving purposes (and to create an even bigger backlog for myself.) But I definitely remember playing around with this program as a kid:

I've always been fascinated with maps and geography, so it was cool to have back then!

Inside was a pretty comprehensive assortment of docs & goodies, all in fantastic condition:

And of course the disks - all five 360k originals, and presumably the original owner's backups:

There were also some, ERRRR, bonus disks stuffed in the box. No idea what's on these yet, especially not the "NOT FOR KIDS" one. Guess we'll find out. :-S

...I may or may not post back the results here.

^^ At the other shop, I bought this sweet reversible neoprene Sony Vaio bag for $5 (the inside is a nice, stodgy, black), which fits my Lenovo Ideapad perfectly (I've been using another Vaio bag for my Macbook for years - and I've never owned a Sony Vaio of any sort!), and a weird LucasArts sampler/compilation disc for $1. The contents of the disc - The Dig, Rebel Assault II, and Full Throttle (I'm assuming they're demos) - aren't anything unusual, but if you look closer:

...brought to you by Chrysler/Plymouth?? What the hell?

Anyone know the story behind this?

And finally, just as I was paying for the above, I noticed behind the counter a super-clean Nikon Coolpix P500 with a mint bag, three batteries & two chargers for just $20! Naturally I wasn't going to leave that behind, & it's what all the pics I just posted were taken with. Pretty pleased about that!

That's an impressive find. As a kid I have played around with PC Globe FOREVER and it is basically the reason why I studied cartography later on. My parents were delighted to see that I got so hooked by an educational title rather than by killing people in the latest gore-fest, that was Wolfenstein and the likes... :happy:
Thanks for the reminder. Now I need to get a copy of PC Globe for myself.
