- Jul 2, 2005Hello all, I'm new to the list. My name is Liam Busey and I live in
I'm presently 26 years old. I grew up with MSDOS at home and Apple II
computers at school. I find modern machines almost magical in their
capabilities but less interesting than a toaster.
I'm a tinker. I like simple machines without a lot of custom chips or
overly complex operating systems without source code. Something that
a single person can understand intuitively. I'm mainly into 8bit
Apple II computers (the ][/ ][+ in particular) but would be
interested in learning about old minis made from common parts ( pdp8?
novas? unibus pdp11?). The homebrew machines on the TTL computer
webring are fascinating to me. I hope to someday be skilled enough to
design and build one.
I try to be more of a hobbyist than a collector. But sometimes I'm
weak. Below is a rough list of what I have. I'd be happy to share any
knowledge I have aquired.
Acorn BBC B x2 (PAL)
Acorn BBC Master (PAL)
Apple ][ rev 0
Apple ][+ RFI
Apple ][+ clones motherboards x5
Franklin Ace 2200
Apple IIgs ROM1 x2
Apple IIgs ROM3 x2
Apple IIgs Upgrade (a IIgs in a //e case)
Apple Cortland (late IIgs prototype)
Commodore 65 (missing a few chips. presumed wall hanger)
Compaq 2 (luggable)
