Proud owner of "the disks": around 10 failing 400K MFS diskettes with various early Apple internal test programs from 1983/1984 (earliest datestamp so far: October 1983 on a prototype of Macintosh Pascal, when it was known as "Instant Pascal"). Previous owner claimed their spouse worked at Apple in the early 80s on the Macintosh project. Currently working with someone to figure out exactly what the deal is with them.

Some of the disks were imageable, others were not and had to be rebuilt, but thankfully I was able to get a lot of files copied off of them and backed up. Currently working on figuring out how to get proper images, and working with an expert member to investigate and determine the contents. I will be releasing them all here as soon as we verify what is on each disk, if it is available online, if there is evidence in old Usenet posts talking about some of the programs, and so on.

"...And all the fears you hold so dear, Will turn to whisper in your ear, And you know what they say might hurt you, And you know that it means so much, And you don't even feel a thing...I am falling, I am fading, I am drowning, Help me to breathe, I am hurting, I have lost it all, I am losing, Help me to breathe..."

Love your "Macpainted" Lain avatar picture. Eagerly awaiting for your next releases

Thank you!
If you ever want to do a similar image edit its very easy, I used the GIMP on Linux and converted to grayscale (Under Hue/Saturation option, lowered the saturation all the way), then I changed the Image color profile from RGB to 1-bit (b/w) and tried a few dithering methods you can select until it looked authentic to me. Really easy! It got kind of downsampled by this site too- the original looks much sharper.

Love your work so far. Keep it up!

Thank you. Please check out the releases I have done so far today. I still have much more to do.
