Apple II fever
So a few weeks ago I contacted my old high-school to hear if it wasn’t possible to buy some of the old macs I remember seeing there … Yesterday I got a reply that said I could have anything I wanted for free ! So I paid them a visit and not that much later I became the proud owner of 4 Apple IIc’s. The Apple IIc is a compact/portable version of Steve Woniak’s masterpiece. It has a processor of around 1 mhz and works on 5,25″ floppy disks. Together with the 4 machines, of which each has it’s own little green monitor, I got an Apple imagewriter, tons and tons of floppy’s, all in mint condition, even new floppy’s that were still wrapped in plastic and finally loads of books and original apple manuals. And did I mention the still fully functional external floppy drive? And all that for free ! Considering my age I of course never was able to work in DOS or proDOS in the Apple II’s case. I do, however, plan on reading up on this stuff and will probably try to get the hang of it and develop some basic programming-skills. For now I have to focus on my finals though. When those are over in about, oh let’s say a month and a half, I’ll try to make a video of all this stuff and put it on youtube. If you want to see my older video’s I made introducing old macs, just visit my youtube-page here.
