Temecula Apple Store opened today

I thought it might be interesting to give my coverage of the grand opening of the Apple Store in the Promenade mall in Temecula.



They opened today at 10 AM PDT, so we decided to get in line at about 8:30 AM after having breakfast at McDonalds around 7:45. The weather was reasonably nice around here: it was cloudless and 75°F with 41% humidity, though they supplied black umbrellas and rather expensive Glaceau water around 9 AM.

Is it true that the value of a 128k system complete with documentation is seriously if it has a 512 motherboard?

A prospective bidder on eBay said that it was and that it would need to be mint condition to fetch even $300 because a few weeks after the purchase, apple upgraded the motherboard of my original 128k. The dude also said I outta reauction everything as individual pieces. I suspect there's some truth to what he's saying but I also suspect he's jonesin for some of those individual parts (manual, keyboard, etc) in order to resell. Thoughts?



Oh and in case you're new to the saga, here's… Continue

Macintosh Restoration Part Two

I have just taken delivery of a Macintosh Plus and a Macintosh SE. Both were very kindly given to me,

by a university lecturer who has just retired. Both machines where stored away in a back room, not being used

for years. He found them when he was cleaning out his belongings and did not want them to be skipped.

Old School Hardware Repurposed! Apple II, C64, Atari 800xl

The Shawks.net podcast from Mongodillo Studios had an episode where the geek of the SHC (Shark Haters Club) explained how their high tech surveillance equipment came from.



It's a surprisingly accurate view of what these machines could mean to a younger generation:

Macintosh Restoration Part One

Introduction

I have been asked to blog about my cleaning and restoration work few times. So this is my attempt to explain the

processes that I go through. I should start by saying that I have no professional training in electronics or working

inside Macintosh computers. Everything I have learnt is from reading books and articles online. Therefore I can not

take any responsibly if you damage your machine or yourself.

I will start… Continue
