Welcome

Hi and Welcome to the Apple ][ collection.

Back in my day…. when there was a real computer industry… :-) if you wanted to play a game it meant typing it in by hand or loading it from a cassette take. It amuses me when parents boast about how their children are “into computers” – but they are just into facebook and games. They wouldn’t know the first thing about assembler, 6502 etc.

I can still remember spending hours typing in Dragon Maze or loading Star Trek (Integer basic) how amazing that was at the time.

Over the past 10 years Graham (my brother) and I started collecting the Apple ][ – (and there is a bit of Mac collection too which needs to come online)

Recently I got a chance to grab some rough photographs and graphics team at Cloudstaff (Romil and a couple trainees) have been deep etching them. (Sorry guys I’ll try to get some better shots next time)

Sometimes late at night when I need a break, I’ll try to update the text for each card from what I remember. Some of these cards are now over 30 years old. The people that designed and built them are no longer with us. There is some real history here.

Finally – if you have some Apple or Mac you would like to donate, please let me know. Would be happy to find a home for it – just ping.

regards
Lloyd Ernst
