  1. I have about 10 or so old MacWrite files that were written in the 1980's (so probably MacWrite 4.5 or so, but I don't remember for sure). I'd like to recover them. Looking into ways to do that, I find that there is no easy known way to do this. So it occurs to me that someone in the community is more of a packrat than I am (or has more room to store old electronics gear) and may have a working old Mac ca 1989 or 1990 with a version of MacWrite that could read these files. If so, I'd appreciate it if I could email said person the files and get either RTF, MS Word, or .txt versions (Preferably the latest possible Word format that can still be read by modern versions of Word or Pages). These files are a manual for an old Mac program I wrote in the late 1980's. I've gotten interested in re-writing the program in Cocoa for current Macs mainly as a way to teach myself Cocoa programming, but with a view to releasing the final product as a freeware program, including the manual. This is not sensitive data, and I have no problem using email for transferring this data back and forth.
