Computers have been a part of my life for a surprising number of years. I believe I got my first computer in around the sixth grade (that would be an Apple II+). As my handwriting left something to be desired, I started doing much of my schoolwork on the computer. One advantage of the digital nature of my work is that theoretically I can still access it. The reality is that getting data off of decade old 5 1/2 inch disks is quite difficult, but I have finally succeeded. But, tThrough my first eBay purchase, I was able to get a serial card for my IIe which will allow me to transfer the disks to my Mac. And a few other programs that help me convert the old file formats.
So as I find interesting things I will post them here for your enjoyment and amusement.
