I have a new toy to play with. Yay! I got a vintage Apple Color Classic. I plugged it in, turned it on, and pressed the power key. It seems to work (kind of). I got a musical tone, and the screen up, but all it shows is plain white with a mouse curser. I can move the curser, but have no menu or icons. Not sure what's up with it. Hopefully I can a few leads on what to check and what to do.

I did many wrong things before, I'm so regret.
I have an Apple IIGS in excellent condition loaded. I have program disks etc. It is for anyone who will care for it as I have over the years. I even have a carrying case for the computer believe it or not. Those were good times. I need someone in the New York Metro area to pick it up if you want it. I cannot bear to throw it away. It is in working order and has been well cared for.
We recently got a couple of powerbook 3400's from the dumpster. After a bit of work we ended up with some spare parts and a working machine:
6 gig hard disk
80 mb ram
The people that work there were very helpful. It only took about 5 minutes to check in my machine for service.
Hello friends of old apple computers!
See my new homepage at:
Because I had nothing better to do today at work, I took all the letters and punctuation off an iBook keyboard I had lying around. I also used the tab, caps lock, return, etc. just so I could have the 3 rows completely white.
Theres actually a few benefits to doing this:
The ENTIRE key now glows when I turn on the keyboard light- it looks way cool!
Been a long time, but I'm back...
When I'm not fiddling with old computers, disrupting the smooth flow of the Internet or saving the world from impending doom, I'm an astronomy educator and writer. To be honest, I spend a great deal of time doing just that (it was my profession once). My interest in computing actually stems form my interest in space science.
