Subject: JEFF Disk data has been recovered!! Posted By: Ashley Time Posted: 12/22/2004 8:14:25 AM
Last night I removed the platter from the JEFF disk and put it in another RK05 case. Then I did something that hasn't been done since May 1979. I typed MOUNT DK1:JEFF and the system replied with the READY prompt. I have salvaged all of the 180 or so files that were on the disk. It was an eerie feeling to once again see the stuff on this disk, stuff that had long ago been written off as unreadable and unsalvageable. Programs that exist nowhere else. This is a major computer archaeological breakthrough. More later....

The WITCH has been brought back to life for you by Kevin, the original wizard.
