I couldn't find an "introduce yourself" thread so I might as well begin here. I came into posession of a complete Apple //e system that was stored in an unheated shed for around 25 years. There's the computer, DuoDisk, green monitor, and printer; all except the monitor in original boxes. The boxes were not taped though and have various amounts of dust, dirt, bits of pink fiberglass insulation, and mouse turds in them. The inside computer and DuoDisk boxes are fairly clean but the printer box is filthy inside with the above mentioned debris. There is also a box of disks. I didn't count them but by thumbimg through them I'd guess there's 60 to 80 disks, almost all of which are home-made copies, mostly games, a few utilites and progamming languages.
I was told everything was in good working order when packed and stored. Before I try turning anything on I intend to take it all apart and clean everything. I still have a set of backup disks of BASIC programs and AppleWorks databases and spreadsheets I used in my former life of an electrical engineer. All modesty aside, I came up with some fairly impressive equations for ferro-electric component design almost 40 years ago. It will be interesting to see them again.
I'm currently reading everything I can find on the //e to avoid asking stupid or asked-to-death questions. And who knows, maybe I'll even have something useful to contribute.
My thanks to the creators, maintainers, and contributors to the forum.K.K.
