    Omnibus Issues Thread

    Hey gang, We've had a slew of issues related to the transition of our former host to a new one and to an unfortunate hack on the forums. There have been several threads about all of these issues and I want to make sure that we've addressed them. 1. Are the hacks/malware gone? I believe...

    Looking for LOGO Turtles, etc.

    Hello, I'm on the hunt for some LOGO turtles for a project at the Computer History Museum. Does anyone have any they're willing to part with or a line on some I could beg or buy? I'd also like LOGO for Apple ][ and Atari if anyone is willing. Thank you,

    Apple keyboard part needed

    I've been trying to finish the restoration of a B&H Apple ][+ for some time. It came in without a key and I've since replaced the key switch and found the replacement key cap but don't have, and can't find, the little plastic spacer that goes between the switch and the key. Does anyone have...

    Rare Apple Haul - Northern CA - Apple Lisa 1, etc.

    Someone near here has a pile of Apple stuff listed on Craigslist: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/scz/sys/5778556117.html Most is common but there is a boxed Macintosh and a working Apple Lisa 1! Too rich for my blood. YMMV.

    Dual 8" drive enclosure with drives - The 11 Connexion

    I've got some 8" drives in enclosures to sell. These are untested but in otherwise good condition. Next is the X-11 or The 11 Connexion, a generic grey unit. $250 +/- seems to be a fair price for these. I'm open to offers. One thing to consider is that I, really, really, really don't want...
