Now that I have retired I am planning to play around with my original release Apple II (Serial A2S1-0734).
It had some basic upgrades.. programmers aid, language card, dual disk drives, Silent Type printer, 80 column card, etc. - Original chips and jumpers are still around if needed.
Looking for some recommendations/insights/advice on the best way to proceed.
- it sounds like there is a device that allows multiple diskette images to be stored/accessed from SD card. Sounds good but possibly is there a hard drive option I should consider
- have an old modem somewhere but is there hard/software that would provide faster communications or LAN/internet access ?
- have some software on floppy disks (lode runner, Zork, Pascal, etc.).
Do I create backups or is it easy to access/download images from the net ?
If making backup copies, what is the best software to use for those with copy protection ?
Apologies if I missed a post on this topic and thanks in advance for your assistance.
