Thankyou. That is enough info for me. Yeah, I know, was just curious to see if a newer date was there at all. And I just saw your recent scans on myce.

PS: for arguments sake, I believe there are Verbatim discs actually made in Japan (by Panasonic perhaps, but I have not access to the MID information, so...): https://www.amazon.com/Verbatim-98916-M-Disc-Thermal-Printable/dp/B01BGW9KWY Verbatim MadeInJapan_100gb.JPG Mind you, beware the cost..... …

Re: Your least used complete vintage system

Heh, must be my IBM 5150 (at least that is what I think it is), 8086 cpu, 10Megabyte harddrive with 1mb to spare... (size of a brick, not to mention the sounds!). Worked last time I turned it on, but the AST SixPacPlus blew a tantalum when powering up... Still worked though.
