I would be interested in any of them you would be willing to provide. I can't imagine anyone cares about copyrights on 40 year old basic programs that only run on obsolete hardware from companies that went out of business many years ago. Truthfully, the programs are more a curiosity than anything else at this point, my main interest is to see how people managed to solve problems within the performance/memory/display constraints. I can only imagine that back then I wasn't in as much of a hurry and didn't demand instant performance.

I got lucky and the PC-1 I got off eBay has no leakage at all, but I suspect it is just a matter of time. I plan on ordering a replacement LCD from to keep just in case it fails in the future.
