Where great old Macs live again!

Because I'm polite, I just missed out on a free Mac Plus with carrying bag.

Bummer. I'd have even paid something (nominal) for it.

What happened ?

I found a posting on craigslist yesterday morning. I got in the first request by email but because it was 8 am, I held off calling to set up an appointment to pick it up thinking that calling at 4 to get over there at 6 would have been more polite. Someone else rolled over at 1. I knew I should have taken lunch to go do it.

That's a bummer indeed :-(

Although I did find an awesome Retro themed site - http://www.mrpinball.com That site could end up costing me some serious money.

If it does, it will cost you an awful lot of room, too. Utah is a big state with a plenty of unused areas, isn't it ? ☺
When you were asking for 'Classic' applications, did I mention 'Solid State Pinball - Tristan' by 'Little Wing' (1992)?

BTW: Here are a few things for Apple ][ collectors/friends:

If the fish in your ear can't help you, maybe I can.

Awesome listing - great pictures. Although the "Apple Talk" card was a bit disconcerting when you're used to the networking setup used with Macs.

A translated and linkable version of the page he referenced can be found here... It's worth a look

Do you remember what the parrot stands for - it's a brand, I know this.
But the bite in the Apple is on the left side, although the leaf is pointing right !
So be aware of apple biting parrots and budgerigars. They'll make things tumblin' ☺

The translation is really good, except for a few abbreviations.
'Fass.' (in the pop-up original text) stands for 'Fassungen' - 'versions', as an example.
It is translated as: 'barrel'.
Funny to me.

I just cheated with translate.google.com to help out anyone that might be Babelfish Challenged. (grin) There's just too much good/fun stuff in there not to share.
