Well this is my ceremonial first blog entry. I suppose I will keep a running record of my Apple I replica (Replica 1 by Briel Computers) experiments here. In other words, this will be the journal of a noob with very little experience in working on retro computers and hardware...should be fun!
So last week I found this new website called Apple Fritter, and in my excitiement to be part of the club I've already made several posts, that label me as 'noob, , 'dishonest' ,and 'downright moronic'
debated just erasing my account, and never coming back.
but I think I'll just admit my absolute stupidity, and beg for mercy.
What machines I own & use....

My Pokemans, let me show you them.
I need some help in reversing an action I took with this computer.
The hhd contains two OS's, 9.2 and 10.3.9. I went into "My account" while in 10.3.9 and changed the startup routine to boot from the 9.2 installation while working with a cloned disk.
Now that the computer boots up in 9.2, how do I get back to booting up in 10.3.9?
I'm looking for ideas for Carte Blanche projects.
The Carte Blanche is an FPGA card that plugs into the Apple // slot. (applelogic.org)
It would be fun to make a stereo sound card, or something like that.
I have an old mountain computer music card, which is an 8-voice 8-bit card, but I'm open to suggestions.
My iPod collection is nearly complete. I bought a 2nd gen today.
This means I have the one 2nd gen.
1 3rd gen.
two 4th gens.
4 5th gens.
Maybe one day I will find a first gen with the real scrolling scroll wheel. I'd also like to get my hands on an iPod touch but I'm not too worried about that now.
There are man times years ago I wished that my family appreciated computers, and personal computing to buy a Macintosh. Since that first time in the school library with its Blueberry iMac G3 design, I have been seeking one thing a Macintosh of my own. I got this fulfilled when my mothers co-worker advised my mom take her iMac G4 (17" 1GHz, 1.25GB, 80GB).
