It’s 2012

Having gone back to my childhood home, I encountered a bunch of old computers and gasp old floppies. Which sparked a renewed interest in vintage computing so I could get the stuff off of those floppies. So, maybe this will be where I’ll record thoughts about that.

As we speak, a new (to me) Apple IIgs should be winging its way to me, along with a first pile of my disks encased in magnetically shielded envelopes, and we’ll see how this goes. When I was back at home, I was still able to read quite a bit of the few of the disks I tried, but I just didn’t have much luck using the cassette ports. Maybe I’ll document the long path to failure in a subsequent post.
