I have about 500-600 floppy disks with Mac software on if anyone is interested. Mostly system 6 and system 7 stuff, some a bit older.
Ideally I would like to see a lot of this stuff loaded up to some of those sites that store the abandoned software but at the moment it is just rotting away.
Anyone that can put this to good use would have to arrange pickup from Wellington.

Depending upon what exactly is meant by 600 disks... If it's 600 DD floppies, then it should be straight forward to create a DVD sized(ish) archive of 68k mac software that can be played with by hobbyists. Obviously, if there's a significant number of CD-ROM's amongst it, that's going to make it a lot bigger.
I seriously doubt it'll be small enough to be a "trivial" downloadable. I won't even get into the licensing issues, which some companies will still feel the need to "protect" even to this day.

Gibsaw and I will go though them and see whats what. Will report in!
