Museum Monday #45

Monday. Museum Monday, to be precise, and I'll try to avoid my traditional zombie-like moaning of the day. I'll just point you to a brilliant Apple Mac Collection that's being showcased right here, and is being kept safe in an impressive underground bunker (well, basement). The collection, a Vintage Computing and Gaming discovery, features dozens of Classic II Macs, quite a few iMacs, a Mac-bar without drinks and the beautiful but rare Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh. What's more, the collection/museum owner has already been interviewed here.

  3. OOOHHH!!! I love what you've done with the place Gnome!

    Anyway this is a great MM Gnome the pics are fab! Apple holds a special place in my heart as it was the first computer I ever got my hands on (circa '79-80?)

    I remember playing 'Lemonade Stand', a 'Lemonade Stand' sim where you had to erm... run a lemonade stand, ordering lemons, sugar, taking into account the weather, your profits, how well much cash you had etc. Thank fuck computer games developed!

    I also remember playing text adventure games with lines like..."You see a small goblet on the table... Should you drink from it? Y/N"

    Great post!!!

  4. A lemonade stand Sim in which a lemonade stand had to be run? Apple gaming? Retro Mac?

    Ahhh, a great comment FK.

    Oh, and the Segata Game post was bloody amazing! The internet thanks you...

    My house looks like a scene from 'Malcolm In The Middle/Appocalypse Now'... He needs a big party to crash his place and trash it!

    Can you tell when I've fallen off the wagon? I get destructive...
