I've got the original boxes, too - from somewhere I worked. I keep meaning
to see if they'll run under wine or xbox. AND the entire editor fits on
two 5.25" floppies....

       mark "which would mean I'd have to halt my machine, and

              hundred 5.25" floppies I've been dragging around...."
