Static Bag & a software archive.

Postby Gibsaw on Tue May 29, 2012 12:37 am

Heh. Apple IIgs 256k Expansion. Pity about the dodgy ziplock bag.

Might as well stand on a van-de-graaff generator and earth yourself through the card. It'd probably do less static damage.

On a more positive note. This software archive has some real history in it. Including things I thought EVERYONE pirated. (like a real, boxed & licensed copy of "pkzip" :) )
"dsakey" on trademe. Apple II's are my thing.

Sigh. Or the 486 RAM on carpet ... again. Nobody learns.

(like a real, boxed & licensed copy of "pkzip" :) )

I though it was the duty of everybody against piracy to pirate it since he stole it from the ARC guy?

And I see Terry can have another go for a GS now that the 'apple load' it's been picked though.

Well, maybe. I did make an offer to the seller after last time but he hasn't got back so it was probably too low. Like I said, they are not on the top of my wanted list...

Last Apple with Woz's signature to it? C'mooon, I'm not even really into Apples and I want a IIgs. ;)
Just the local Commodore hobo and middle-aged PC hoarder.
eisa on Trademe. A lasting reminder of a Compaq fetish when I was younger.

Well, it's certainly not going to be $250 just for the IIGS box...(Check out the answer to the questions on TradeMe! :shock: ).

I actually have a box and all the rest. All that's missing is a motherboard and base.

For what it's worth, I tried to get the seller to look at the ROM messages on those GSes, but he said that he didn't see any, so that would indicate they're ROM 0 machines. Having said that, I get the feeling he was going from memory rather than actually looking at the startup screen, so the info may not be accurate.

Yes, he wasn't clear about it when I asked him either. I did send him some info on how to distinguish between the ROMS but never heard back as to whether he had a look.

I don't suppose anyone here would be interested in a joint purchase of the software archive?
I'm mostly interested in only a few of the titles.
Please PM me if you are. Preferably ASAP.

what did you have in mind? Maybe work with Tezza since he's nearby. I'm interested in the OS/2 Warp (especially if it's 4.0)

No, nothing there is of interest to me sorry.

The seller is in Auckland and seems reluctant to ship.
I'm mainly interested in any of the networking stuff - Novell NetWare and NT Server, etc.
Going by the box in the photos, I'm guessing the OS/2 is the original Warp version 3.0
