You could obtain terminal emulator software for it and connect it to a *nix machine. I don't know about the II+, but IIRC, the Apple II was a caps-only machine, so that might make things difficult. I guess it would depend on the terminal emulator.

oh how I miss my apple II. both of them. well, one was a IIgs, but that's neither here nor there.

:rock: eff tee double-ewe.

considering the amazing amounts of boards that ran off apple IIs during the 80s, I would totally consider setting up a dial-in BBS like we haven't had in.. a billion years. it would be really rewarding to see, and if you still reminisce about those days, it might be a lot of fun. one of the most noteable Apple ][ boards: the metal shop BBS, host to phrack magazine.

if all else fails though, holy sh*t, install terrapin, the geometric/mathematic logo-esque program that totally rocked my world when I was a little kid. a link to a Terrapin LOGO programming page

Hell Ya

I am building a custom desk for all my apple II stuff and also going to buy some more on ebay.

These are some real nice machines with lots of software,options and are a big part of our history.

Still have the dialer program that I wrote.

Gonna be great for some more prank calls.

Happy summer all

Hehe I remember playing Oregon Trail... never played it on an Apple though, it was on my old windows box.

Remove the HDD and try installing the OS from anther machine onto the hard drive.

Get a cable and install the OS from a desktop on to that HDD and then plug it in, see if it boots.

Download from the Microsoft site the install from floppies and then it will recognise USB CD/DVD drives to install the OS from CD.

Must it be Linux? Try them all, if nothing works consider a hardware problem.

But even not getting into/PW for BIOS is weird.

EDIT - sometimes if you remve the HDD, they auto boot from USB, but not all.

A. Microsoft? Are you serious?

B. Why the pointless link?

You have died of dysentery!

But aside from heading down nostalgia lane and playing games, I didn't find much worthwhile to do with the one I obtained from my school district. I think it is currently sitting next to the old NeXt computer in the basement making dust bunnies.

when i was in elementary school we had some old apple somethings. i forget. my memories are fuzzy. but i do remember oregon trail and how i found great pleasure in shooting helpless buffalo. oregon trail was like grand theft auto for 6 year olds.
