8-bit Memories

Apple//eI uncovered this picture while going through a pile of old 5.25″ disks. It’s my old Apple //e clone, circa 1984-5 on a mountaintop in Taiwan. Check out the bitchin’ boom box!

I do see a couple interesting things on the right hand side: a map of either Bard’s Tale or Wizardry, and my “hacking notebook”, which contains entries like Adjusting Disk Drive Arm Seek Delay Table, Sector Edit for Sundog: Frozen Legacy More Cash, and Castle Wolfenstein Subroutine List. Yes, I was a huge nerd, but living on top of a mountain will do that to you.

    I can’t make out the cover of the cassette on the desk…any ideas? :)

    I can’t make it out either. The original photo is kind of blurry. It would have been something I had in the 10th grade. Having horrible taste in music then, it probably was Meco!
