    A very fitting tribute. Very good.

    I love how long it takes to load.

    My first Apple product. Not my last. Brings back fond memories of programming in BASIC.

    Very nicely done, the //c was my first Apple computer despite coding on //e systems in my high school (platnium cases as opposed to the older beige units).

    At that time I was beginning to push the old 8 bit favorite to it's limits and got the exact same model //c for home as a gift from my mother in part of what I saved up to buy one with the same monochrome display and the mouse to go with it. Looked almost exactly like the mouse on the Mac Plus, just with the serial connector for the //c.

    I pushed the system so hard writing in ML along with other tools and rendered 3D wireframe graphics in real time in HGR mode along with other neat demos over the years. Lost all of it in a fire sadly which broke my heart as it was a great computer that I even had money saved to buy a faster CPU for it. In time, I eventually ended up using the savings for my first Mac which was the LC and the 12" matching display.

    Thanks for bringing back some great memories!
