I have that as a physical copy for my XBOX 360 for preservation sake as well; that game is both pretty good and getting pretty rare..

When Sony announced they'll kill the PSN store for the PS3 I ordered some games because I was concerned the prices for physical copies will go up.
Today this one arrived:

I really like ordering stuff from Japan. They are always respectful, often leave these thank you notes in the package which I always end up keeping.
Now I got an additional free game, probably because of the shipping times are all over the place. The seller did apologized in advance for that.
To be fair, I feel a little guilty as if I was exploiting his goodwill.

As for the game itself, unlike most games I ordered form Japan, this one is entirely in Japanese and don't seem to have language options. I guess I have to make do with this one. I can read a little, but I think I'll put this off for a year or so until I feel like I'm up to the task. And is it just me, or this game is missing from the PSN store?

I found a brand new copy of OEM DOS. It's more of a dumpster find than a purchase. I won't open it, I already have an opened copy, but I'm still curious if the floppies work.
I also found some driver CDs. It never hurts having some around. I'll probably image them some time later.

Back in 1993 I wanted a complete set of Microsoft Office 4.3 but it was way too expensive about $600
Now I have a complete set for Windows 3.11

That's a nice find and still in the cube box.

Yeah, diskettes and CDROM version too. With all the books and manuals.

That's sweet. Do the floppies still work?

I will have to test it out. There are 24 diskettes.

There's a glitch in the matrix.

Apparently 32-bit is dead and nobody likes P4s.
Of course, as always, I'm open to correction...😉

Just stumbled across a lot of 6 Microsoft products for 30 bucks + shipping. Both Visio and Project still sealed and in immaculate condition. Scoooore.... 😀
The manual of Microsoft Systems Management Server has 1035 pages by the way...

excellent condition, looking at the pics now it doesn't seem so long ago - and yet it also seems on the other side of an 'online' bridge all business seem to have crossed some time back

Dang, I just saw the box second from bottom and realised I might have that somewhere, forgotten about. It's probably the same box I haven't touched in 18 years that has IBM PC system disks and I believe a sealed set of IBM DOS 3.x

Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.
