Projects

Here's what I've got on my agenda now that the fall 2007 semester is over.
  1. File away the Apple IIe I restored. I live in a college dorm room so there isn't much space when I wrap something up.
  2. Finish making a 5.25 Floppy Archive before February. I will be using my IIgs to accomplish this before the spring 2008 semester begins.
  3. Restore the Atari 2600, Sega Master System, and Coleco Gemini units I've got laying around. Not really Mac, but definitely retro.
