ABANDONWARE --- i.e. SOFTWARE ORPHANS LOOKING FOR A GOOD HOME!
For two decades, all over the planet, software that was born happy, gurgling and cooing, genetically perfect, hoping to find a permanent hard drive to occupy and loving PC users to care for them, have been ABANDONED. It had nothing to do with worth. A lot of the best software ever made just got lost in the flurry of competition. The corps went out of business. NETSCAPE BROWSER was one superb PIECE OF SOFTWARE. A COMPLETE browser with HTM COMPOSER, and an EMAIL CLIENT BEYOND ANY OTHER. AN ADDRESS BOOK with features NO OTHER WILL EVER HAVE. UNPARALLELED. Today no runty EMAIL CLIENT around touches it. SEAMONKEY its HTM COMPOSER IS JUST AS GOOD as Netscape's COMPOSER. You can get SEAMONKEY free online. You can GET Netscape if you have a WIN 98 PC still alive, copies of Vers 4.75 are kept by these CNET type online museums.
But a software you all would want which IS STILL AROUND is ZTREE which once in 1990 was XTREE, a fabulous FILE MANAGER. Xtree went out of business so KIM HENKEL reissued it, better. You can use it for free for 30 days. Go to ZTREE.COM. Download it, very tiny, less than a million bytes. So HENKEL just adopted an orphan. You also adopt abandoned software, give them a good home. Dan the Man (lives in UTAH, off the grid, very private but ask me for his email addie,) sells used software. He puts them on a CD and you pay very little. Simply go to EBAY and hit SOFTWARE and find those vendors. I'm glad he stays online. Clients always remember you and come back.. Dan sells orphaned floppies and CD's full of used software. And game software always Software with beautiful DNA, Copies of the big guys stuff. ABANDONWARE it's called. (Again, ask me for his email addie)
YOU WILL NEED some HTM software that is "EZ-USE" necessary if you write articles like Momma here. 7 THOUSAND WEBPAGES LIST. Microsoft OFFICE 1997 is SKINNYon coding which I like. After 2000, the coding got byte intensive DOUBLING the file size! SOMEONE TOLD ME TO GET a good website design software like COFFEE CUP. I was not intuitive enough to figure out its non intuitive use. ALL my pages were designed with a good old 1995 browser, like NETSCAPE vers 4.7 which had a COMPOSER and FAB EMAIL CLIENT... it's probably still online, free and can be downloaded for a win 98 machine, and up to XP. I have it on an XP and it works great. BUT NOW I have WIN 10 on a 2016 DELL PC so I USE SEAMONKEY, download FREE ONLINE and that's JUST LIKE NETSCAPE and is all I use to design my websites as it has editing for HTM so similar to NETSCAPE COMPOSER.
I USED to always recommend MICROSOFT OFFICE l997 as being better than more RECENT versions as it's not so code heavy. It looks great online. For years I did all my web pages with it.

http://www.luckinlove.com and the GREAT WISDOM OF THE MASTER JULES at http://www.masterjules.net
http://home.earthlink.net/~astrology/ was the first site I ever had. One of the "Freebie" websites that Earthlink gives its subscriber... They give you TEN free websites when you sign up with them -- as a server. 40$ a month but I only got 3 free ones and those only 10 megs each so I do not LIKE THEM AT ALL but they are the SERVER I'm stuck with for life as they gave me the EMAIL ADDIE ASTROLOGY AT EARTHLINK DOT NET. ( !) I can't abandon it. ORPHAN MY OWN NAME? NO WAY!
(Note the way the sites are written, the freebies at EARTHLINK http://home.earthlink.net/~astrology and the rest, they are not true domain names, but it works for me as a.) I'm not made of money and 10$ a month for DIAL UP is a cheap website. My 4 EARTHLINK SITES cost me nothing a month free with signup,but they are smallish. b.) I put ads up at Craigs list in order to get readers. Under FREE SEMINARS, FREE GROUPS.OR I target show biz section for my HOW TO MARRY A BILLIONAIRE and DO GOOD FOR THE WORLD --100 classrooms!
I recommend EARTHLINK as a server if you're broke, cuz they will give you up to ten websites, free. Ten megs each. Tell them astrology at earthlink sent you when you call their business office. I get a free month. And when you sign up, you tell people " you get a free month if they sign up".
I'm into deals, sales, things cheap, used or free. So go online, google up the abandonware word or used software or go to EBAY and get vintage web site design software. Find Dan the Man who also teaches. A PC GURU always at the ready. Two very important things. Lot of freeware online already that's what I always do to get a good TEXT EDITOR.. That is so important. See HOW YOU WILL USE TEXT SAVING DAILY!
ON some 'USED SOFTWARE VENDORS' web pages, you'll see HARD WARE TOO-- , many early 70's PC's. I have kept PC's in the garage from the year 1984, if I remember right. I could open a museum. Dan probably collects ancient PCs too; I know he has game ware. THE MUSEUM OF GAMES. All in his store in IDAHO where Dan lives. Give us another reason to visit the Spud State.
