The Greatest Computer Evah!

Thirty years ago today, a strange new computer was born—and with it the promise of a digital revolution

My first computer was an Apple IIc. I still have it, and it still works. A three hundred baud modem and an Imagewriter dot matrix printer… WooT!

After a couple of months I trashed the warranty and ripped the sucker open and jacked the RAM up to an impossibly powerful one meg! The modem was upgraded to 1200 baud; an outboard 5.25 and a pair of bleeding edge outboard 3.5 disk drives were added. The Imagewriter was upgraded to the Imagewriter II, which could print in color! WootWootWoot!

I didn’t quite know it at the time, but LeatherPenguin Publishing was born.
