The guy selling these disks is Barry Watzman, who
I believe is a sometimes contributor to this list.
I recently bought one of these disks, and was very
pleased with it and the time it saved me downloading.
While some of this material was put on the net by
others, I believe that Barry himself has scanned
some of it himself. In any case, it appears that
he is providing a genuine service rather than
profiteering at the at the expense of others. I am
also a satsified customer of Bryan Blackburn, another
list member who has collected and scanned a variety
of Mark-8 related resources which he markets on E-bay.
I don't know either of these guys personally, just
a satisfied customer...
