I have a box of stuff…

I have a box of stuff for sale -- a combination of items Kev and I had duplicates of, free stuff we don't want, or stuff we've used and gotten tired of. To make my life simple, the box has been divided into packets, which are on auction for the following week, until midnight on Saturday 2/19. Highest bid gets it, minimum bid per packet is $10. All bids must be posted to the comments here, packet # specified, attached to a valid e-mail address, and the bidder must be willing to immediately send me the money through PayPal should they win. You may bid on multiple packets.

I believe all the computer games work, but no guarantees; I played them all on a Mac PowerBook. The videos are actual videos, not DVD's. If you win a packet for $10, you can almost certainly sell the individual items and turn a tidy profit, if you're willing to take the trouble. The box contains the following:
