Apple II Community Resources

Expect me to update these links soon...

Kansas Fest 2013! The KFest committee has announced NOTHING for KFest 2013 - yet!  We have every expectation that KFest 2013 dates will be announced in the "near" future. ("Near" being relative to a user of a 30+ year old machine)  Given the incredible success of the last few events and the great speakers and vocal community members, it's got to happen.  They even let a (gasp) Commodore lover speak last year.

Anyone else get their copy of JuicedGS this week? (Be quiet Ken. ;) )

This is really incredible, some hardcore Computer Archaeologists have reverse engineered several versions of ye olde Microsoft 6502 Basic (Applesoft, Commodore Basic etc) using cc65. They put together a new source code package that can rebuild these Basic images verbatim. Wow.

They are discovered some very interesting findings lurking deep inside this code...

If for some reasons you wanted to do some Lores programming on the go - point your iPhone to http://virtualgs.larwe.com/gsbasic and have fun!
