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.

I just put up a post about a Questron game for Apple II.  Anyone have any idea what it's worth?  Can't find any listed on eBay, or on any other website for that matter.  I'm open to offers if you want to buy it.

You guys didn't use this for almost two years...  I should take it away.  The ][ deserves more love than that.
