DAN ][ THE FUTURE: Boosting your favourite 80s machine to "8.59 jigobytes"

Imagine in 1980-something you started your Apple ][, /// or //e - and you had 8 gigabytes of storage... Mind blowing?

Well, if you have a DAN][ Controller card, you can now easily boost your 1980s machine to 8GB. In decimal numbers, the maximum usable storage now supported by the DAN][ Contoller is actually 8.59GB. That would certainly have spooked Doc Emmett Brown in 1985 - though he'd have pronounced it "8.59 jigobytes", of course... But no need to accelerate to "88 miles per hour". All it takes is a simple firmware update.

Lisa library added

In 2003, David T. Craig mailed me two CD-ROMs containing a tremendous library of material about the Lisa. The material totaled 1.3 GB. At the time, Applefritter was running on a prototype ANS 300 (Deep Dish) with a 2 GB hard drive. As such, we didn't have the space to post it. Now we do!
