    Funny story. It turns out my anti-technology mother-in-law secretly wanted to be a computer programmer back in the 80's. She showed me these boxes that were buried in a closet for the last 25 years and it turns out she had actually bought pretty much the top of the line technology in 1987.

    I found a Macintosh Plus with a 30MB SCSI HD and HP Deskwriter printer. She has MS Works, MacDraw II, Aldus Pagemaker and all kinds of other stuff on it.

    Its not even a little yellow. It looks just like it did back in the day.
    I can't stop playing with it. It's taken me back to high school drafting class!

    I don't know why I think this is so cool but it just is. She told me to keep it so I have no idea what I'm going to do with beyond designing the coolest house ever!
