My dad died and he has some information on 3.5" floppy discs that are .ss files. These were created on a Sharp Font Writer - Personal Word Processor.
On my PC I have tried everything but cannot get them to open in an intelligible format, nothing works, not excel, not notepad or word etc.
Anyone got any ideas how I can open these files legibly to save them onto my PC?

I'm sorry to hear about your dad.
I'm afraid this forum isn't the right place to ask, as these .ss files have nothing to do with Silverstripe; it's a coincidence that they have the same extension.
You'll have more luck looking for a file-recovery forum or something specific to the word processor in question.
Try googling for "Recover files from word processor" or something like this.
I see some tools for Sharp Font Writer files here: http://semiprime.com/fontwriter
Otherwise, you can see what can be extracted using a Hex Editor (try http://sourceforge.net/projects/hexplorer). This will probably allow you to copy any plain text out, but won't preserve any formatting, or anything like that.
Best of luck.
