Cool! :)
I'm currently browsing for a G5-tower for my collection, but they're still a bit expensive.

It is just coincidence that I have got the 128K just after the anniversary. I have been looking to get a mac 128k for some time, and I managed to get this one on eBay for a good price (£63 - about $45). It is in very good condition with minimal yellowing and comes with a carry case.

It was incorrectly advertised as a not advertised as a mac Fanny Mac, but the model number of M0001 gave it away.

It's 44° outside right now, the warmest day yet. The snow is melting and running everywhere. It's finally starting to be spring.

Thanks John. I'm already rocking Warcraft II and SimCity 2000 on my iMac G3. I wouldn't mind getting a copy of Tie Fighter. Any other recommendations on good games?

Aha - Diablo II. Now that's what I'm talking about. Thanks!

Do you need a power supply for your 9500? because I am parting out a Workgroup Server 8550, and i bet they are the same. The power supply I have has a detachable motherboard power cord, It is a Mineba Electronics model AF000111, Apple Part Number 614-0038.

If it is the same, let me know. I have it apart right now to blow it out with compressed air, as it is encrusted with dust. The beast also has a huge fan on the cover that comes off.

Hay John! Here's that Woz patent I mentioned:

Digitally-controlled color signal generation means for use with display

It's written in his own casual style and is INFUSED with Woz-hackery!!! I feel like a Bible scholar reading the Dead Sea Scrolls LOL

Enjoy and take care!! --tim

Hi John,

Thanks for the welcome note.

Happy to be here. Been involved with computers since the early eighties. Used to write a software review column called Computing with Mr. M.  It ran in newspapers and magazines. Started out with a two disk Sanyo CP/M machine (which I loved) and then went to Radio Shack Tandy 1000. Later bought an Apple IIc and eventually went to an Imac.  Today I collect vintage Macs.  Still use an SE/30 to write articles once in a while with an old version of Word. I then transfer them to my current Mac for submission to magazines.    I have a working Apple IIe with duo drives that I play games on, just to remember how it was.  Today I booted up an old version of The Oregon Trail and Ms. Pac Man. Also ran Paperboy for a while.  Cool stuff.  I look forward to listening to your Podcast. Love to hear about anything related to the early days of computing.  Back when a 300 baud Hayes Smart Modem cost $500.  Remember that?    Here's a quote I found on the web you might like:

"...you don't have to wax nostalgic about this stuff to be a geek, if you used Wordstar, CP/M or a Kaypro or even if you just know what those terms refer to, you're a "classic geek."  Yes, I have used a Kaypro running CP/M-- but it was only at work."

Writer Kevin Murphy on a computer blog about Wordstar, August 2004.

p.s. I also used a Kaypro at work!

Thanks for the warm welcome, John.  If you like my blog half as much as like your podcast, I'll be happy. :)
