  1. I have an old Vax (Vaxstation 4000) sitting right here behind me - using my windows PC with a serial port as a terminal. That ADM would work fine with it.
  2. I had one just like that... sent it off to a 68KMLAer who can chime in if they like. I did this with it:
  3. Skydata SCSI CD burner came my way from Freecycle - actually, the person that previously gave me two Apple ][+ machines just emailed and asked if I wanted the burner, a scanner, and a ZIP drive - I just took the burner though as I already have the others.
  4. Mostly because then I can use the same Firefox and Thunderbird on every system in the house, and only have to learn one OS!
  5. It'll run Debian Linux really well.
  6. Continued from the thread in Conquests: Well, looks like I have enough stuff here to make one really really really nice ][+ and one parts unit. Unit #2 doesn't power on properly - sometimes I get a screenful of random characters, sometimes about 6 vertical green/black bars. edit: I removed the Suprterminal card; it has a little kludgy daughterboard that replaces one mothernboard chip - and this unit works now! So I don't need to swap mainboards, I'll just use #2 as the base for a "really nice" machine and #1 as a parts tester. The power supply on Unit #1 is a little whiney and the
  7. Damn, I'd be right on that one if Chicago weren't 18 hours drive away. Wait, my sister from Milwaukee is coming up for Christmas.... hmmmmmmmmm

  9. Well, checked out the first unit a bit. Haven't powered it yet, found the following: * one plastic keyboard retainer inside is broken - keyboard hangs into the case a little. Easy to fix. * following cards in it: - Orange 16k - ASI-1 serial port - Videx Ultraterm 80/160 column card - Applied Engineering Ramfactor card has 256k, takes up to 1mb - Applied Engineering Transwarp 3.6mhz 6502 accelerator has another 256k. - oh yeah and dual floppy controller with 2 drives - joystick Cool stuff. Edit: powered it on without keyboard, get Transwarp logo then Apple
  10. It's all here.... this is the most amazing pair of Apple II+ I've ever seen... immaculate condition, 2 drives each, and each one fully loaded with expansion cards, most of which I've never seen before. I know for sure I have a Z80 CPM card here, the other stuff will take some research to figure out what it is. Fun times ahead.
  11. Now I found out I don't even need to pick it up... she works in my end of town and is supposed to DELIVER everything after lunch today (Saturday). Normally there's not much good on Freecycle (mostly worn out kids clothes and broken TVs) but I have had a lot of luck over a long period of time: * LC475 complete system mint from original owner (another 68kmlaer has that one now) * 7300 system that caused me a lot of headaches * Amiga 1200 and 500 with lots of good stuff. The 1200 is my main Amiga now. * various C64s Another thing I used to do is watch for newsgroup/craigslist/buy&a
  12. Picking up tonight or tomorrow: >> Two Apple II plus machines >> Each machine has two 5 1/4" floppy drives >> one has a joystick >> one has 3" floppy drive >> one monitor WHY do I volunteer to take on this stuff? At least I know at least a couple people I can give it away to.... I decided to 'specialize' in Amiga (sorry!) but can't resist a free Apple computer!!! I think it was just to see a 3.5" Apple ][ drive...
  13. Just not the way you think. I have had this Ext II for awhile (the One True Keyboard for the Macisti) but I found the "one" key (with the exclamation mark over it) didn't work. Tonight I took the KB apart, desoldered the "one" keyswitch from the board, took it to the garage, soaked it in WD40, then blew it out with 100lbs compressed air. Now I'm all 111!!!!!!Oneoneone.......
