Just for Fun and the Apple Macintosh IIc!

Annapolis MD has a long history. Some of it good and some bad.

watch a flower bloom!

The Apple Macintosh IIC. The previous computer I had, the Mac Se/30 was a B&@ computer. I was composing poetry so I didn’t care about having a color screen. But now I had children in the house, they wanted to play games that were in color.

Plus the Mac SE/30 only had a 40 meg hard drive. (Not gig – meg!)

I ended up getting the new Macintosh IIc computer. It was the more traditional desktop computer and it had both a 100 meg Harddrive and color output.

I couldn’t print in color (I had an Apple Laserwriter printer back then) but I could see color on the screen!

    • i have had a lot of computers over the years. most of them are long gone now.

      i once actually had a computer in my house, that I was repairing for a friend, that sold for 10,000 dollars new.

      but the time my friend got it, it was 3 dollars at a yard sale.
