Another awesome video.(It's also cool to see all the old IIs...)

Technically the black cable shouldn't be necessary as the apple does not send info back (normally).

Oh...I can see why now, ADT uses the black audio cable to ensure the image is on the host.

If someone goes off and tries to do this, please don't get frustrated, it can take a good while to make the volume adjustments. That's part of why cassettes died out. They're better than typing in the program again, but not if you're in a rush for a game of solitaire...

Once the bootstrapping is over with, you need both sides/cables if you want the full-on, two-way transfers.
