I have a number of Osborne 1's as well as a couple of 386 machines set up with Teledisk (I bought it *years* ago when it became available to listmembers), imagedisk, and *maybe* Dave Dunfields IMD(?). As VCFMW gets closer and you still need these floppies read, let me know and I'll put the machines in with the stash of "junque" to unload :).

Both the person with the floppies, and I are in Oregon.

I remember that Teledisk buy, thanks, you pointed me in the right direction, and I found backups of my DOS C:\ Drive on my Mac with Teledisk and 22Disk, it looks like they’re both unlicensed copies though.  That group purchase was way in March ’99, I managed to find the email from Bruce Lane, that was the HARD part, then I had to find the email attachment.  That was easy.  If would do a better job of searching my email archives, it would have been easy to find the email itself.
