PCjr Software Trade

Post by psergiu »

I live in North DFW, and over the last 10 months and 14 trips at Computer Reset I have accumulated a lot of PCjr software, especially in "Cassette" plastic cases.
My hope is to have a (near) complete collection of software for my PCjrs
So I am offering my "Dupes" collection for Trade.
I have something you need, you have something I need, we negotiate a trade (I am open to 2 of mine for 1 of yours, and even more for rarer stuff), and we both send each-other packages.
I do not care if the plastic case of what you are sending me is cracked/scratched/yellowed as I have a bunch of new & shiny cases.
I do not intend to sell any of them until all trade offers are considered.

(PS: for anyone getting needlessly upset that "I took all the software from Computer Reset" - no, I did not. Every time I discovered a box of software, I just took a few and made sure there are more left for others.)

On the back label, the System requirements are:

IBM Display
128KB of memory
One fixed disk drive
One diskette drive
(c) IBM Corp 1983

So it predates the PCjr. As IBM never shipped a fixed drive option for PCjr, guess it was never marketed for the jr, but i don't see why it would not work with JRide
