It’s not every day an Australian Educational software set appears on eBay just begging to be imaged.  This is the “Basic Skills Software Resource Collection” by the Computer Education Centre (CEC).  This is the main collection of 16 single-sided 5.25″ diskettes, and the bonus double-sided 17th diskette.

The AppleII Monitor Peeled

No Comments, Apple2, Manuals, PDFs, by Michael.

You never quite know what you will find when you go browsing on eBay.  A couple of weeks ago I came across “The Apple II Monitor Peeled” and the old style presentation of it intrigued me, so I put a bid on it, and won it for pretty much the hand written price in the corner of the front cover.  Its ye olde charm, and printed on 3-hole paper with a two staples binding, it was too much to resist and just had to add it to my bookshelf. A typewriter composed book written in 1979 (2nd printing) by William E. Dougherty, and perhaps his forward to the book would be the best description.

Archiving My Old Mac Floppy Disks
