Don't blame me, the fact checker made a mistake

Ok I'm tired of the angry emails from Apple II rev 0 owners Wink

It was a phone interview so the reporter must have misheard me. I tend to speak very fast even when I try to slow down. I told the fact checker I said Apple IIc not Apple II, but because it was in print and not just online they couldn't correct the article in time.

Once again I appologize to all the Apple II rev-0 owners, you can beat me with a 5 1/4 floppy disk.

Cheers,
Corey

As an Apple ][, Rev-03 owner, I am totally incensed, and will use an 8" Floppy instead. ( to inflict additional pain )

BTW, nice photo, and nice plug for our hobby.

Being able to say that you helped to restore so many Apple I computers, is a piece of history that you can be proud of..

Also, thanks for sharing so many photos of the Apple I's you work on.. The uniqueness and similarity of each of these units is priceless!!!
