I could kick myself!  I did not know you were collecting old CDs.
I gave over 100 of them to 10bit, and they trashed most of them!
I still have over 200 magazines from Win 3.1 and up, and Linux.  The Win98 and Linux ones mostly have CDs in them.
I won't be using them, need to clear space.

The way to do it is to hit up info at archive.org, or me. Or post a "review"
on the item with the problem that needs to be fixed.

The goal at the Archive is to get a copy of every CD-ROM ever made. Right now, in the shareware and cover CD realms, we're well past 3000 of them (although with the categorization and splitting, I don't have the exact number right now). Some of them are weird and misfiled - I'll be happy to make fixes or add more CDs as time goes on. Uploading them generally, then letting me know, will be sufficient to get them filed away correctly.
