Mine (a RevB Apple IIe w/65c02) still works. 128kb 80-column card, two quarter-pounder floppies (an Apple and a MicroSci), Orange Grappler (parallel) printer card, HP-540 inkjet printer, and an Apple III 12" green-screen monitor.

Runs VisiCalc Advanced Version (though the MouseText makes everything under the highlight unreadable), original AppleWorks (w/Beagle Bros enhancements) and...

BurgerTime :cool: -- one of the best arcade games ever.

A bunch of other things, too.

I can't say that I still use this computer, but I know that it works, but my Macintosh SE still works. It takes about 3 seconds to open a window, but by-golly it can open it ! :D:D

It's the CompactFlash IDE Interface (http://dreher.net/CFforAppleII/) for Apple II that you're thinking of.

Here's the inside of my IIgs (http://www.blakespot.com/list/images/gscards_2.jpg) to get a conversation started. :-)

I have 2 IIe and 4 IIgs systems, so ha! :-)

And 4 imagewriters and one imagewriter LQ! And 6 apple floppy drives, 6 apple monitors... old crazy stuff.

Even 16 year old CH joysticks. :-)

Very cool looking, I wonder how it would stack up to our TV studios Commodore Amiga:)

We were cleaning house here at work and found a whole crate full of IIe's and such. We cleaned one up, and it fired right up. Wow, not bad for a computer that's from when I was in 3rd grade (I'm 27 now).
