One of my most notable Mac software hauls came from a guy in CA who used to
work at a defense contractor and saved some of the software, then gave it
away. I think I got boxed 68K versions of Mathematica, MathCAD, Ashlar
Vellum CAD, and some cool utilities. You can find old Mac graphics apps all
over the place but anything CAD or scientific is very rare (non student
versions are even harder to find). Oddly enough I found an old 68k copy of
Designcad at a local thrift, if I didn't recognize the company logo on the
all black box I would have missed it (used the DOS version at a previous job
in the early 90's).
