Thank you for the welcome, James. Its a pleasure to be here. I've been spending my "winter break" knocking around the Internet while listening to all your earlier podcasts. Great job! This site is a terrific idea!
Thanks for the welcome James and glad to hear things are steaming ahead through the 50 episode barrier. Been listening since episode 1 and glad to see so many others share my interest / passion / obsession!
a couple of episodes ago when you did 'all' of the apple keyboards you missed one out. The black version of the 'Apple design keyboard'. There is a picture on my page of it. Also have you got or ever seen the modem thing on my pics ?
Thanks for the welcome! I've been listening to RetroMacCast for quite a long time now and love the podcasts. I meant to join this group when it started but I've only now found time in my busy schedule to do so. I look forward to having an explore of this site and joining in the discussions.
Hey, James. Nope, I didn't hang onto my original 1984 Mac. I have clear memories of unboxing it with my daughters who were 10 and 12 at the time, but I can't for the life of me remember what I replaced it with or who I sold/gave it to. I do remember swapping floppy disks in and out, always hoping that I was on the last swap before the program would start up. Look foward to meeting you at MacWorld.
Hi James, thanks for the welcome. The thing in the photo is a Battle-Bot form the, now defunct TV show. I use to do first aid for the company contracted by Battle-Bots. That one was wounded in battle, and I had the owner e-mail me the photo. I guess I should specify that I did First Aid for the humans, not the bots. And, Yes! I am going to MacWorld! WoooHooo! I have had to miss it for a few years, and I'm glad to be going back. I use to go every year when I lived in the SF Bay Area, but since I moved south, and got so busy working, I've had to skip. I am hoping to connect with the Vintage Mac fans there. Any suggestions on how I can meet up?
Thanks James! That's my RetroMacCast refrigerator magnet that I'm holding for all to see, and my well-used RetroMacCast hat! My local user's group (dBug) always gets a kick out of the hat when I wear it to the meetings. Spreading the RetroMacCast love!
James O James--I guess you never read all the comments on your flickr account. the Jacket is photo shopped, in honor of your jean Jacket--the one you left at home--why would you leave it at home--missing the absolute perfect time to wear it. LMAO
I just listened to the podcast and watched the video of James on Extreme Mac Fans with David Pogue - that was GREAT! Loved it!
It sounds like you and John had a pretty fabulous time. Can't wait for the upcoming podcasts to hear more. Welcome home!
