    Oooh, a dollar! Go for it. Is that per disk, or for the set?


  • Honesty

    The whole set.

    Actually I should list them as FREE and set the shipping charges at $1.00

    I want to be able to sleep at night.

    What time period was this? because I left for good in 1993, and I don't ever remember those being available. Where did JW's get them, from the literature counter or at the conventions? Did you have to special order them?

    I think I still have them laying around.

    The reason I didn't use the disks was because it had a virus on them.

    If I can recall they were made by a company in Idaho, by a company run by Mormons.

    I thought that was strange, but the WT knows best, so I didn't give it a second thought.

    I remember those discs. They were around 93 as I recall as they came out around the same time I got my first computer (maybe a bit before). I got the 5 1/4" versions and yes, they took an eternity to load. I think they were only on double density discs or am I just thinking too deeply here?

    I also remember the special needs talk that was given advising people to not use them as a replacement for their paper based bible. Something about needing to stay in practise of finding scriptures easily...
