I booted up my old Apple IIgs on Easter Sunday. FIrst time the machine had been turned on in over 10 years. I played a game called Sub Battle Simulator. I can remember playing for hours on end when I was younger. Great memories! Now, the cool thing about this whole experience...I booted into the control panels and lo and behold but the date and time were EXACTLY RIGHT! I was blown away. Over ten years of idle time and the thing kept up. Amazing...
Yeah, about those TPS reports, didn't you get the memo?

If you want to use some of that GS software on your Mac, have you ever tried the Apple ][GS emulator called "Bernie To The Rescue"? It is a fantastic emulator! Check 'em out at: http://www.magnet.ch/emutech/SupportCenter/

Wow! 10 years... compared to the PC notebook I use for work where it drifts after 10 minutes, that's great!

As Douglas Adams said about Apple:

"At least they knew the century was going to end..."
