I'm not retro, I'm just old.

How did you hear about RetroMacCast?

One of My Favorite Things....

Fox/Universal took down "One of My Favorite Things..." Bummer. It's not like a 1 minute clip of a canceled TV show would do anything but sell more disks.

Like the //gs it was killed before its time.

But I can't tell you the name of the show because that would reward Fox/Universal for being dickheads. But I can tell you that there were only 14 episodes and a movie and that "Darn" is much cooler than "This is SPARTA!"

New (Old) Toy! An Apple //c+

There it is, the new yet old Apple //c+. Aside from the obvious yellowing (almost Apple ][ beige) and a missing rubber foot, it seems to even work! The 800k 3.5" drive was a little sticky so my first boots were from 5.25" drives. But now it's working well and booting from 3.5". I haven't been able to confirm the cpu speed but that's something I'll do before getting any sleep…

Possible new/old Acquisition!

Well, if I've done all my work and Paypal hasn't cut me off like Wikileaks, I may have purchased an Apple //c+ on eBay last night.

More when/if it shows up!

Remember this is the fastest official Apple // ever made. If it works when it gets here.

My Vision of James' Collection

Go there, look at it. And show your spouse that, "Really, it could be worse."

Jailbreaking Demo

Now there are two sides to this issue and the Library of Congress has decided which side they are on and we already know Apple's stance, but this is gutsy!

Actually one the 1987 time capsual ... It is 1987 as they are looking forward to 1997, saying things like 'apple is dominating the world'. Sadly thats not true ... Apple nearly went bankrupt.

Hey, why shouldn't I be mad! I used to be able to sleep late on Sundays ;) No that's not true, I really am just a slacker! A Mac Slacker. Yup, I like that. Mac Slacker, Mac Slacker, Mac Slacker. It just sort of rolls off the tongue.

This "comment back" thing kinda messes up threads and ruins good jokes.

I just grabbed one from my facebook page. I need to get some mac pics up.

Grabbed one "what" from your facebook page? Picture? (Sorry the "comment back" logic doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense sometimes)

Thanks for the welcoming :)

Thanks for the friending! And the blog comment. :)

LOL - John, actually. But along with those Macs he came with a really cool 80's arcade. I can deal with an Apple Shrine if it means I can play Centipede and Ms Pacman at 2 in the morning with no quarters needed. :)

It's looking really cute so far!! In response to my "I only have one Mac" comment James said I was allowed to claim half of John's collection as mine for "putting up with him" so the Banana Jr will be in my half. So, yay! ;)
