Oh I read the requirements already, I just want to get a feel for what
people actually have :-)

Wow, "micros" :-) It will be fun being on a list that knows and uses
that word, along with the other classifications :-) Usually, "computer"
is sufficient on the lists I participate in!

I admit, I don't really use my Apple //e for much. Occasionally, I
power it up to play a game of Moon Patrol :-) I used to program in Jr.
High, and High School, but have forgotten most that I learned,
unfortunately. Never got into ProDOS, either.
