Apple III ProFile Sales Kit

This is the Apple III ProFile Sales Kit, for dealers, to encourage customers to buy a ProFile. I have scanned the contents of the binder here: Apple III ProFile Sales Kit (PDF) It came with a bunch of Backup III disks (the program and then a 6-disk set, designed to be restored […]

A few Apple III images from Ian

I have long been meaning to post these somewhere, but I will post them here for now. These are a few Apple /// disks that an online friend of mine, Ian, imaged from disks that he had around that were labeled as being for the Apple ///. I have not gone […]

Apple III Record Processing Services (RPS)

I recently got ahold of an Apple III software package I had never really heard of before, the Apple III Record Processing Services (RPS). It provides libraries that allow developers to add database functionality to their applications. At this point, I have not explored it or really tested it out, I […]

on three

I recently received a great collection of On Three magazines and I am working through them to fill in some of the holes in the collections on the net. I have started scanning on the tail end of the run, partly just because they were the easy ones. As of […]

ProFiles encouraged

Of vital importance

Also scanned today were a few bits of miscellaneous paperwork. Not sure if they’re useful for anything, but they’re for some reason mildly intriguing. This came from the purchase of an Apple II plus system and related things in October and December 1982. [Update: four more, from an Apple III, […]

A tale of /// drives

So, I got an Apple ///, and as reported earlier, it started up to the “RETRY” prompt successfully, but when I put any disks in the drive, it made a godawful racket. There was clearly something not quite right about the internal drive. As it happens, though, I just recently […]

We don’t talk about three.

Today I got another label: It was attached to this: Yep. One more thing. Let us never forget the glorious victories of the past: World War I, World War II, ][+, //e, and //c. —What about ///? —We don’t talk about ///. (at 3:22 in the full version of “1944”) […]
