In every Radio Shack company store (I don't know about the remaining few
franchise stores), there's a set of binders _on display_ for special order
products, mostly electronics garbage.. One of them includes software for
old computers, Color Computer, Tandy 6000, early semi-PC-compatibles, etc
It surprised the hell out of me to find it, but it's in every store I've
visited lately.
