    Hello. I've been listening to the other half of Gene's world at The Paracast since around 2011. I've also had a Apple consistently since around 1984. First with an Apple IIC. Then an Apple IIGS. I used run a BBS (Bulletin Board System). Back then, I had the only hard drive available for the Apple IIC. It was called a ProAPP. It came in 10 MB or 20 MB versions. Cost was around $999 for the 10 MB. I also had a USRobotics Courier HST modem (9600) baud. Retail for that was also $999 but you could pick one up out of Computer Shopper magazine for around $640 or so. I also remember buying an Applied Engineering 1.5MB RAM expansion card for the IIGS. Those were fun, exciting times. Running a BBS on Greg Shafer's "GBBS Pro" software. Having hard drives, etc.

    I look forward to hearing the next episode!
