Antique found in laptop sachel

I was cleaning out my laptop satchel today and discovered DeLorme Street Atlas USA 2008 edition, with DeLorme Earthmate GPS LT-20.
It was a good system in its day but time marches on.

Back in 2004 I bought a Compaq Computer at a thrift store for couple bucks.
Power button didn't work
After fixing it I turned it on...hard drive had NOT been wiped and all information showed it had belonged to an ex-girlfriend from many years ago and in a completely different city

Doesn't have anything to do with a DeLorme Earthmate GPS
BUT it was a strange find....
I took my Medication today. HAVE YOU?

I had Delorme USA from around 2004. I still have the Delorme Earthmate BT-20 GPS receiver, and it still works, even with Windows 10!

I still use one of the older Delorme SA maps on my rv-laptop, paired with my Silverleaf VMSpc. Always liked that program the best, very clear and concise and with surprisingly-few errors (not attributed to the pilot, I gotta add).

I recently found a Mac desktop computer with a bad PowerSupply. Fixed it and fired it up. It mostly had some QuickBooks home-budget stuff on it, and then evidently was given to a kid because of the more-recent younger-set games. HOWEVER, continuing to dig back thru older-date files, I ran across some gay-porn... which immediately prompted me to destroy the HDD. Sure didn't want to get caught with that when I sold the computer.
