Although I have 4 classic macs (original, 512, Classic, Se/30) I need to 
keep them running because I have software I still like to run that is 
copy-protected.  Makes me wish the Mac platform was more successful so 
that there were more pirates.  I'm serious -- I have these original 
disks that are nearly unobtanium and I wish I could make a backup copy.
