Hmm... I've got an ancient ORIGINAL of Zork I (published by Personal Software)
I've wanted to back this thing up for years so I can see which data file is on
it, but I've never owned anything that can read it. Is it likely to be SD?
What kind of non-period hardware can read this? If need be, I could even
hook up a 5.25" disk to my Amiga and get funky with that.



Infinet has been sold. The domain is going away in February.
