Title: Warp Server - NOS Free
Post by: Sean Casey on July 26, 2019, 06:25:45 pm
I have several NOS boxes of Warp Server that have been donated from one of the once great OS/2 ISVs that are available to anyone who is willing to pay shipping from Southern California.  PM me if interested.

Update: There are also a couple NOS boxes of Warp client.  I haven't seen these, but I'm guessing they are the V3 client.

Language EN?
What is this NOS version? (Supposedly not to be built into the car to make it warp faster.. ; ) )
Can you estimate the shipping costs to DE?

Thank you in advance. : ))

They are all EN.  NOS was to mean "New Old Stock - shrink wrapped box pack" not Network Operating System :-)

It looks like shipping to Germany via postal service, no declared value, approx. 3.6 kg, would be about 114 DEM ($65 USD).  Your eBay might have better pricing?

Woah, who is still using DM? ; ) - Since the year 2002 DM is no longer, and has been replaced by the infamous EUR. :D
65$ --> 58,41 EUR

Well.. I have asked ebay.. and it only gave me Warp3 Connect. Even a sealed one from the US, which is 104 EUR plus 60 EUR for shipping. URX... :D

Naw, I think your package is still the better deal, and also Warp Server on top! : )
Which one is it btw? 4.5 or 4.52?
And which way to pay? Do you support Paypal? : ) - should be the easiest way.

Paying in DEM would have been a great deal on shipping.  Euro it is :-).   I need to collect the boxes in the next week or two and I'll put one aside for you.   I'll contact you when I'm ready to ship.

I still have two other new Warp Server and two new Warp client boxes for anyone interested.

Hi Sean

If it can be possible, when you collect the boxes let us know how many and which ones they are (Warp 4, 3, red/blue spine, connect, diskettes/cd, etc).

Call me crazy, but I'm also interested on pictures of the OS/2 boxes in higher resolution for the OS2World picture gallery.

Regards

Update:  All the Warp Server's have found new homes, but two V.3 Warp clients are still available.

I finally picked up the Warp software and will be contacting the individuals who have requested copies.  This software has been donated to the OS/2 Community by Carla Hanzlik, co-founder of Sundial Systems together with the late Dr. Randell S. Flint, and one of the founding members of the still active Southern California OS/2 User Group (SCOUG). 

Thank you Carla!

Hi Sean.

Can you please post (or send to my email) pictures of the Warp Server 4 box?  I can not find a picture of the back side of the box.  I would also appreciate to have better pictures of the front, bottom, top side that the ones I have. I want to include those on the gallery.

Regards

Wonderful! - Imo nothing should be thrown away. Everything should be contributed, what's not needed anymore. - Books, software, packages, etc.

Big thanks!!

I trying to find a home for 1000 Kg OS/2 books and magazines. Do you want them? Enough to pay shipping? USA Media mail is fairly cheap inside the country.

Do you only want to get rid of that as one lot? Is there a list of what is available?

; ) Neil, I'd love to say yes, but two things keep me from waving my arms shouting "HERE HERE" :>

First, shipping a ton of books from US to DE would be fairly expensive, I suppose.. hehe
And most importantly, second: I lack space to store them appropriately. Currently I already have trouble to somehow store my computer collection, hardware storage for spare parts and documentation for eight several machines (from small to large), and still live here. - I need more space for my hobbies.. ; ]

But how about Martin's collection? Maybe he's still short of some nice books out of your collection! (Yep, a list would be nice.. but who could possibly file such an ammount of books into a list.. :})

And maybe Roderick has use for (part of) that for the eBay auctions from os2voice?

Then there may be no need to ship items to Roderick (and perhaps back), if the items are sold conditionally.

I think some people have a kind of pack-rat personality that accumulates things. This is just part of their nature. So we sell to them on e-bay. OS/2 users are getting on in years, so when one of these people passes on, there is a large collection for their heirs to deal with.

A quick google search will show that there is no value in those books, software, magazines. The computers are e-waste.

Sure they are valuable to some people on this OS/2 World. But how will they know?

I have a web page, http://www.blondeguy.com/OS2MuseumWest.html (http://www.blondeguy.com/OS2MuseumWest.html), that has a list of holdings for a collection I made. At some point, I realized I could not store such a thing. Robert Kuropkat came to my rescue, and is storing and curating the collection. He is constructing a better list. But he has run out of space at this point.

I'd like to have several places to accumulate some collections of physical items, like books, magazines and software. We have very cheap shipping within USA for these items. I do not have to suggest that they be stored in my area, one of the most costly in USA.

There are already several places for digital scans of books, magazines and copies of software. But we need a web page that welcomes donations, and we need people to accept donations and store them safely and catalog them

The latest collection has spreadsheets. (about 200 books and 800 software items).
