I still think WordPerfect 4.1 may be my Holy Grail of word processors. But the hell with it, I'm excited about getting this pristine ancient TextCraft (plus!) software in my hands.
I guess I should explain why I do what I do with original software, because some might find it strange... beyond the fact that it's 1) expensive and 2) virtually unnecessary these days and 3) impractical with aged, magnetic based storage.
To get completely transported I prefer to find original disks - when they are affordable and not outrageously priced. Sometimes the hunt is half the fun. I'd much, much rather wait for the software in the mail as patiently as I can, as if I had ordered via snail mail catalog back in the day, paid for by a check back then no less (by a parent!) .
Half the time, I get disks these days that are corrupted and I wind up having to move ADFs I find online onto a blank anyway. But I quietly put the new disk in the box with the dead one(s) but play it like it was brand new. It probably sounds weird, but I'd rather collect my software the old fashioned way - on disk - even if I wind up playing 1/2 my stuff off my HDD. I mean, why not? What's the rush, right? At least when I find something that isn't a gazillion dollars...
I got TextCraft NOS for $25! Probably $15 more than I would have liked, but it's still shrink wrapped, so that's worth it to me. This is a hobby, after all.
