    Wow, fun! :) Was this actually made when the computers in it were current? What's the history of this document?

    :D I seem to recall seeing this once before and it is contemporary with the Macs.

    Perfectly true though. I bought my first Mac because the thought of having to remember DOS commands made me shudder...

    I also remember the Apple poster "Bongo's Dream Dorm," also by Matt Groening, around 1990 or so.

    They had all that stuff in my campus bookstore when I was a freshman in college in 1988, before I even owned a Mac. Being a huge Life In Hell fan back then, I stocked up on everything. Unfortunately, I don't have the "Bongo's Dream Dorm" posters anymore (supposedly they are worth a mint!), but I think I do have a couple of the booklets filed away somewhere...

    Thanks for making me feel old. :eek:

    Is Matt groening a Mac fan? The Simpsons seem to often refer to Macs, but in an indirect way. I remember one episode where homer starts up a computer to the sound of the familiar Mac 'chimes'.

    But I think they came out sooner than that, as I recall having those materials my freshman year of college (Sept 1988-June 1989).
