I offered some pretty rare Osborne stuff to Dave Dunfield at classiccmp.org, but donít know if/when heíll upload it, so if anyone here is interested in the stuff below, PM me and Iíll provide you an FTP site address to get it from.
(I also offered it a few times to Bitsavers but I never received a reply).



Osborne 1:
Drive C (ram disk for the Osborne 1) Ė 152 page Userís Manual, image of the disk in ImageDisk format, program files for SSSD disk, scan of disk label.
Dysan Interrogator (Drive Diagnostic Program for the Osborne 1) Ė program files for SSSD disk, image of the disk in ImageDisk format, scanned disk label, 37 page manual (scanned for printing double sided on a color laserjet). You can run basic read/write tests with the program, but canít run all tests without a the Dysan Digital Diagnostic Diskette (which is not copyable).
JG Communications RT-60A (real time clock card for the Osborne 1) Ė 32 page Operatorís Manual, scanned disk label, & Teledisk image of the software
Milestone (Project Management and Time Scheduling Program for the Osborne 1) Ė program files for two SSSD disks, image of the disks in ImageDisk format, scanned disk labels, & 90 page manual. (Perfect for the moderator thatís spent 18 months renovating a bathroom in his basement J. Weíll see how well he reads all these posts now).
Nuevo Electronics Double Density Upgrade for the Osborne 1 Ė 21 page Installation and Operating Instructions manual
Osmosis Upgrades:
- Osmosis CP/M Disk Emulation System for the Osborne 1 - Teledisk image, scanned disk label, & 13 page User manual
- Osmosis Double Density Kit - Teledisk image, scanned disk label, & 23 page User Manual
- Osmosis 80 Column Board - 23 page Installation Manual and Applications Guide
OZ ROM 1E Ė 58 page manual

Osborne Executive:
EXEC-T (11 MB Internal Hard Disk Upgrade for the Osborne Executive) Ė sales brochure, 77 page Installation and User Manual

Credits for the stuff need to go to:
- VCF member skypilot177 who provided the Dysan Interrogator, JG Communications real time clock, Milestone, Double Density Upgrades, Osmosis Upgrades, OZ Rom 1E, and Exec-T.
- A guy on Ebay (mike_r) who provided the software for the Drive C (and also VCF member richo132 who also offered up the software, and provided a scan of the original disk label).

For those that have already visited the FTP site:

If you have a modem with your Osborne, I just added MicroLink and Comm-Pac for the Osborne1, and for those with the Executive, I added MyTerm to the FTP site.

I do (just sent you a PM on how to get it) but it's going to get deleted in a couple days.
Grab it while you can.
After that, this thread can be considered closed.

For those after this software, it is now available as a 64MB ZIP file at:

http://www.kaypro.net/diskimages/kaypro/non-images/lorne-osborne-stuff/Lornes-Special-Osborne-Software.zip


Thank you to Lorne for providing this special software.

I will keep it available at the above link for the forseeable future - but as this forum will survive longer than the above URL, if it ever dissappears from this exact location try looking on the main pages of www.kaypro.net or www.actrixcomputer.com fro links to software I collect.
