I can't be the only person who instantly loses interest when somebody posts a link to an ebay auction?
... or 270 of them.
I don't mind links to massive auctions for vintage hard to find things (Apple II software with box/manual isn't that common these days). I won't be buying anything but its nice to look.
Sometimes I wonder about people who spend quite a bit of money on hardware yet never buy any legit software that just seems wrong.
??? What am I missing here? I have stacks of retro software that works as does nearly everyone here.I never buy the retro software, it doesn't work ...
Why do you say that? The author got paid when the original purchaser bought it.I never buy the retro software ... the author isn't getting paid for it.

And why should they?
If you sell your 10 year old Chevy does GM get a cut?
How about a used computer or anything else you might have bought and want to unload?
90%? Do you have any building-sized motors in your house?
I think most people have forgotten how well old software works. Sure there were some stinkers, but you can't tell me there aren't today.
I have boxes of original Atari ST, Amiga and Commodore 64 software and 90% of the disks are bad, but I'm glad to hear that yours work now or forever... Maybe I have a bad production run
Sounds like your storage environment is not ideal.I live in a part of California where it gets into the 100s during the summer. It's not just my software but software acquired through hardware purchases that's bad. But in the case of my old software, yes, it was kept in a metal shed for over 15 years and various places before and after that, and it's not just disks but all magnetic media I had that went bad (including backup tapes and some home videos.
m pretty sure my copy still works so I'd like to sell it as "tested/working" If you think that's wrong of me well I'm sorry but if something is held onto long enough and it appreciates in the eyes of collectors why not make a profit?
yeah its not what this forum is for..... if you dont ever join or add to a discussion and just peddle wares.... I think its not right.
