iPod Collection

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.

Enjoying the Mac.

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).

Just Me & My Apple

Hi Everybody,

G5 case to Mac Pro knockoff, maybe

Well, my recently acquired G5 case cries out to become home for a hackintosh. Since I bought an actual G5 at the same time, I'm thinking it'd be 'cool' to have the two machines side-by-side, just as are now my old QS and PC.

This is just the beginning

Well, hi...
I never was a good writer.. nor enjoy writing stuffs, maybe it's because of my language problem

Currently i am working on my 1st mod and would like to share it when i am done.

Parts are slowly arriving by post, plan is sketched and written down and all i am waiting for is the set of Torx screwdrivers i ordered.

ebay and my quest to regain some old apples

I'm going through a retro phase in my life at the moment. The early Apple II's are on my "I want" list. I remember when my father bought home an Apple IIc with monitor, it was a great little computer. I am kicking myself now because several years ago he asked me if I wanted it and I said no.... dumb! He sold it for very little money.

why am I 'the mighty'?

For those who have followed my saga, you will notice that I have now updated many of my older blog entries to catalog them as part of the Lost Chronicles of Sarnia - for those of you not 'Fritter Critters during that era, the joke may be lost on you...

This is because I have begun a new chapter in my life and can truly say that my therapuetic venting has ended.

Apple II board Rev A serial number 14

Cleaning out the basement i came across an apple II board that has never been used. It was in the box with the original letter for the last 2 decades - purchased from a supplier in New York.

The back of the board has wires! (that is what revision meant in those days)

Here is a pic:
