    Over the years I have accumulated a bunch of old CD ROMs that came with the Macs I used to have, running System 8 or 9.

    Mostly educational or children's programs from when my kids were younger. Things like Kids Desk, Compton's Encyclopedia, Microsoft Encarta, etc.

    Right now they are taking up space and I can't bring myself to throwing them away, seems like such a waste. I would gladly give them away to anyone that might still be interested in these.

    They are all in reasonably good condition, can't guarantee if they still run since I don't have a machine that can run them anymore.

    If there is interest I will post a complete list of the CDs. I will give them away and if you feel inclined, you can make a donation to Bantay Bata or any charity you support.

    Hi Ricocamus!

    Sir, I'm interested in your educational CDs. We have a couple of old Macs still running in our school's library and I'm sure the younger children will appreciate being able to play with some multimedia educational programs. May I have a list and your mobile phone number sir?

    Hi! Just a quick question... For those running OS X 10.4 or higher, is there an OS 9 emulator we could use so we could run OS9 apps with recent hardware? I would love to run classic games from OS9 using my PowerBook G4, so a virtual machine is out of the question since Parallels and VMWare require Intel-only processors.

    In 10.4 there was a System 9 emulator, I will check the app's name tomorrow.
