Oh...you've come here, have you? Apparently enough people have that the chief inspector of FAQ questions (you've seen her) has told me that I have to put something in here. As far as the Mac goes, I've only been on one for about six years or so (my first 'real' mac was a PB5300)(which is still in operation, having retired to Florida), though I started emulating them a few years before that (on my trusty old Amiga 3000 (040/40)).

At the moment here, I have a gamut of machines here and operational...besides the Amiga, there's a Duo with dock, a Power Center Pro (604/210), a G4/450 (a refurb/obr, which was one of the early top models, when Apple was having trouble getting the 500 chip-so it has the DVD-RAM drive), and the Wallstreet (now G4/500) that I'm usually on.
And now, they've made me co-moderator of this madhouse...

And once in a while, maybe I get a chance to have a little fun...
