Text Distribution System

I was a pioneer in the area of electronic self-publishing -- however I thought that all the evidence of that was lost in the mists of time. Yesterday I stumbled across Version 3.1.0 of my Text Distribution System, copyright 1995 (pictured). This was capable of quickly publishing a book, or any text in parts. I noted that existing systems "needed 3 to 5 days of study to master", while mine could be mastered in an hour. It offered "swift and flexible access to your writing". When one gave it numbered text files between 1.DAT and 76.DAT, of (almost) unlimited size, it automatically presented them.
