All the online archives seem to have a bogus copy, that's a mix of
VAXmate and Rainwbow files and it doesn't work.

So I discovered I have a copy that isn't in the archives. I've
uploaded it. Details in my blog entry
about things. At least one member has these files and is trying to
make them work. Since I don't have Graphics Adapter, I've not worried
too much about them... But I've had them in my collection since I
think 2001...
