    That's why I only use Norton Utilities Advanced Edition v3.5.
    If you're looking for DS/DD or DS/HD 3½" or 5¼" floppy disks, PM me. I've got some new, used, and factory over-labeled disks for sale.

    Interesting, though you may be in the wrong topic for that disclosure since NU v3.5 is a Mac only CD release.

    When MSDOS 5 included Central Point's virus scanner, a lot of people (myself included) were upset by the fact that it flagged all executables that had been compressed using DIET.

    Oooh, I'll register the domain newoldschool.org and mirror it there.

    Seriously though I may look at mirroring it on my home NAS, though I'm not sure how much of my 1Tb transfer cap it'd chew up. And most of the VPS places starting hitting $20+ per month for the space needed to completely mirror it. Hmm, maybe I can host it at work...

    Sorry, my BAD.

    It's Norton Utilities Advanced Edition 4.50 ©1987-88.

    Money isn't everything. I've run into plenty of people who blame him for the current software with his name, not realising he has nothing to do with it.

    But he stayed on the cover of Symantec products until 2001:

    I see that you are hosting the Olivetti pocket service guides that I found! Those are the exact same folders that I created on my computer. I'm guessing that 1ST1 shared them with you. That's very cool. I was looking for a reliable long-term way to put them online but wasn't sure how... Very cool. But you are missing many files that I have found since then. How do I send them to you?
    • The only computer from my childhood that I'm missing is an Olivetti M380-40... Please help me find a solution to this problem
    • Looking for pictures of the following Olivetti computers: M380 W, M380 XP4, M400-60, M480... Complete list: http://pastebin.ca/3629976

    Of course, for marketing reasons.

    Upload them to the /incoming directory and then drop me a line (email preferred) and I'll move them into the correct place. Make sure to specify BINary transfer
    Offering a bounty for:
    - Documentation and original distribution disks for: Panasonic Sr. Partner, Corona PPC-400, Zenith Z-160 series
    - Music Construction Set, IBM Music Feature edition (has red sticker on front stating IBM Music Feature)
    - Any very old/ugly IBM joystick (such as the Franklin JS-123)
