That's a good start.
How are you doing on supplemental files, Developer materials, Programmer's
"Which level of Lode-Runner had a missing section of ladder that made that
"Which C compiler had a 16 bit char?"
Do you have the hardware to handle Lisa, ][. etc.?
It also couldn't hurt to have another archive of old versions of
"How long does it take a 16K PC with 1.00 to boot, relative to XP?"
"Which versions of PC-DOS included RECV35.COM?"
"Which versions used FORMAT /F:720, v /F:2, v /T:80/N:9 ?"
"What differences did 2.11 MODE.COM have in Gavilan v Morrow MS-DOS?"
THESE questions are rhetorical, but they are typical of stuff that
archivists need to research on a regular basis. It isn't often, but every
now and then somebody NEEDS some specific old disk.
