Apple We all have our most favored machines of yesteryear; in this I assume that most people are like me, anyway. Breaking away from the mundane every-day news of boring (I jest) new technologies such as touchscreens the size of a wall and upcoming operating systems that support graphics cards with 1.5 GB of vRAM, take a walk down memory lane-- or "Neurological Alley" as I like to call it-- and take a look inside, outside, and in all of the nooks and crannies in between the circuits of the Macintosh Plus and its accompanying System 6, fresh from the splendor of 1986.

Ardi's Executor

While I never had anything besides a Apple IIc, I do appreciate trips down memory lane. Old machines (and old programmers) were surprisingly useful. Kids today don't appreciate how good they've got it! ;-)

P.S. Ever tried Ardi's Executor? Well, it's defunct (as well as Ardi) but Cliff Matthews has put it on Github and ported it to Linux, Mac OS X, etc. (It originally ran on DOS via DJGPP, which is where I first heard of it.)

"Executor is a Macintosh emulator that is able to run many ancient Mac OS 680x0 binaries (System 6 era, early System 7) without using any intellectual property from Apple Computer."
