Apple Pi

I recently purchased a Raspberry Pi with the idea of making a 1/2 scale model of a Mac Plus. This is one those "Because I can" projects with no practical use (my favorite kind!).

Printerhenge

So this last Saturday, after doing the 3d anniversary podcast, I tackled a project I've been putting off for a while (what a surprise!). What you see in the photo below are five Laserwriter IIs.

Yo Slacker! At least James should be your friend... Unless of course James is still mad at you for getting him mixed up in this "Podcast" thing.

Thanks! If you want the story behind it, I posted a comment on James's page.
