Hi,

A long time ago (probably 4-5 years) I remember reading about a gentleman from England that used his Apple II to make a system to scan, punch, and archive piano rolls. I was curious if anyone remembers anything about this.

It may have been prior to when the website went down, and I know there was an article, but I think he also possibly posted here. Any pertinent information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I don't think there was ever

I don't think there was ever an article about it, but there was a forum discussion.

Wow, I remember that thread.

Wow, I remember that thread. That's one of the very obvious gems of the old board. That was one of the coolest A2 hack stories I've ever read.

Rex Lawson, Apple II extraordinaire Guy

Dave and all,

I just finished reading the Rex Lawson blogs and I could not stop until it suddenly ended.
I am not sure what happened to the rest of the series, but all I really needed was the first couple and I was hooked.
The last entry I read was from five years ago and then it just disappeared. Does anyone know why? Did he ever place scans of the cards he modified up on a website? Did his software self-destruct while he was using it?
Best Regards Smile
