Changing the Apple II title -more info available!

A while back I posted a blog article entitled "How to: DIY changing the APPLE ][ title" where I described how to change that familiar title you see whenever the computer is turned on.

Now I've just posted a followup article which basically contains a magazine article I had found and read way back in 1983 which I now found again at the Internet archive!

It explains several cool tricks which I hadn't covered in the first article. Interesting stuff thanks to people understanding the value of archiving old computer magazines and sharing them with the world!

Caveat

Hey there, nice info.  I s'pose this far down the track, most people would already know a lot of the clone names were removed so that there were fewer problems with ProDOS.  Now you can patch ProDOS to ignore the bytes also, and I think some of the really new ProDOS  verisons don't even need patching.

 

But it might be a trap for someone that doesn't know, so I thought I'd mention it.

 

Regards,  S
