It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything here, and as usual a lot of interesting and relevant things have happened (mainly in terms of acquisitions) that I could post about. Mostly, I’ve just resorted to Twitter, and by now there are so many things to post about that I’m sure to forget something. I got a couple of really interesting collections of things, including an early II+ with all its boxes and lots of tapes and manuals, another set of things left over from a Apple II repair shop with lots of spare chips, badges, and doodads, a big set of LEGO/Apple II robotics equipment and a half-dozen //es from a retired industrial arts teacher. I now also have two standard (non-plus) Apple IIs through a couple of lucky breaks, a machine I’d thought I’d never even have one of (neither of them have the coveted raised power lamp, they’re both slightly too new). So much to document, so many disks to image.
Being an academic, I’ve reached the break between Fall and Spring semesters, which I hope will give me some opportunity to get through some of these projects that have been piling up. Among the projects I’d like to undertake is to figure out how to organize this site in some useful way, since I envision having lots of stuff here that’s not really best viewed in reverse chronological order. We’ll see. Only a few short weeks open for this, but maybe I’ll make some progress.
Anyway, this is just another “I’m still alive” post, though if you were following @yesterbits on Twitter, you’d have known I’m still alive.
