Macmedic's Blog


Ooof. So it's been a while since I've been around guys. I have been super busy with work and travel.

Recently due to personal illness, I spent a lot of time trawling the web to fill in my time and my collection.

As I have been very frugal I decided to splash out on a number of items.

I now own an Apple Daisywheel Printer, a JLPGA Laptop, An Apple Color Plotter, an Apple Monitor 100 just to name a few of the rare beings I have located.

Steve Jobs

No words will describe the feeling of the world without Steve Jobs.


I shed a few tears after seeing the emotional outpouring in the last few days, and it is so uplifting to see so many people showing their feelings for Apple and Steve all over the planet, I don't feel alone, understanding now that many are like me, because for a very long while there times were tough for Apple.

My Lisa Memoirs

The Apple Lisa II

By Adrian Franulovich 28/2/07

First of all some things I have learned to help make sense of the whole Lisa range.

Apple released a few flavors of the Lisa, the Lisa, the Lisa 2, Lisa 2/5, Lisa 2/10 and… Continue

Yes yes. Don't worry I sometimes wonder myself if I really have that many. It was funny thou, recently a friend of mine was up from Melbourne in my Office in our shop and I was surprised to find out I had 24 macs in there alone! Never mind the rest of the shop and storerooms!

I didn't realize the Duo 250 was tough to find. I do happen to have one so I guess I'm lucky to have picked one up along the way. Your list has inspired me to dust off my list and get an accurate accounting of my stuff.

That's an impressive collection

Did you manage to snag the 250 to round out the collection?

Yes I got the 250, the guy is posting it.. So finally I will have the entire DUO line up.. It only took 10 years.
