A Solid Investment

- - posted in Ancient Archives

I’ve found an online shop selling a CD-ROM for ¬£49. That’s not really interesting, in itself. It’s also the first CD-ROM I worked on (I think I wrote two articles), which is (to me) slightly interesting.

But what’s really interesting is that it was released almost ten years ago at (I think) about ¬£79, and yet there it is, in a restyled box, for ¬£49. A number of other discs of the same era are also available at rather solid prices.

In an industry where a ¬£10,000 graphics package will end up on eBay for ¬£50 after about three years, that’s pretty good going. Maybe quality educational material is always good value, no matter how technically ancient.
