I have had this puzzle since it came out in 1986, but I hardly ever messed with it (easily less than an hour of total use ever).  Free to a good home, you pay shipping.  My zipcode is 91384 if you want to check prices.  This will *not* fit in the USPS small flat rate box.

Free: Warcraft III Collectors Edition

I bought this when it came out.  Opened the box once to look at the stuff, then put it on my shelf.  I never even played the game!  Not sure why.  Anyway, it is free to a good home for the cost of shipping.  It might fit in a USPS medium flat rate box, but I have not checked the dimensions yet.  If you want to check shipping costs, my zipcode is 91384.


Edit: forgot the images...


[claimed] Free + shipping: 2.5" USB enclose with hard drive

Older enclosure, only works with the IDE 44-pin 2.5" drives, and is USB 2.0.  The enclosure includes a hard drive (32GB I think).  Fits in a USPS small flat rate box.  Comes with everything shown in the photo.


OCR for Code?

Thu Jan 4, 2018 12:49 AM

I found some old program printouts, nice 9-pin dot-matrix all-caps 99/4A BASIC-code goodness.  I took some nice high-res photos and tried running them through every OCR program (online and offline) I could find, but they all fail miserably.  All the software seems to try and determine the language and make sense of the code as English (or whatever language it auto-detects when that fails).  Does anyone know of a *dumb* OCR program that will just worry about individual characters, or any OCR designed for technical documentation, code, etc.?

Nice PEB for sale in the Marketplace

Not sure if anyone saw this:




Among the collection is a nice looking PEB with two half-height 5.25" floppy drives.  Looks to be in nice condition.
