Have just added a boxed set of the Marathon Trilogy (Mac OS) and, for the Apple II historians, a set of A2-Central magazines. It's missing one for some reason but I must have it here somewhere as I know which Rick Tennant cartoon is missing from my collection. In a box somewhere...
I notice the lead article on the first mag is about the Apple High Speed SCSI card I've got in the IIGS closing tonight. It reports that the higher speed would allow up to 1 Mb per second on a IIGS. Woo-oh!
I also note that Molten Media are selling a bare IIGS closing Tuesday. I don't know if a part(s) from that would solve the startup issue with mine?
I'm still mulling over the Color Classic. I won a SCSI MO drive and disk which have yet to arrive - brain explosion on my part! I've found a possible Mac driver for the MO drive so want to test it all first. If I do sell, the system would comprise a Color Classic with max RAM, 150Mb HD, Apple IIe PDS card and 5.25 "D" Apple floppy drive, PDS ethernet card, external 500MB SCSI drive and Apple SCSI CDROM and cables and terminator, 5 boxes of 3.5 floppies, Apple StyleWriter 1200 - and the MO drive (working/not). The StyleWriter has a new refilled cart installed and a second refilled one plus the one I removed. Currently it is producing lined prints so some of the current carts nozzles need unblocking. I should have decided by tomorrow/Tuesday. The Classic needs a V-RAM SIMM. I might pop down to Molten Media and see if they have one.
My IIGS experience has certainly made me nervous about keeping old computers yet there is something special about having one that bridges the IIe and Macs.
