It is how Galactica survived the Cylon virus which infected the Colonial Fleet.

I've finally got my system set up enough to share a picture!

 

I'm probably not your average 99er as I didn't grow up with the machine (my family had an Apple II when I was a lad). I had actually never heard of the ol' 4A before a couple years ago! I first learned about it while watching retro computer videos on YouTube and I fell in love with it, eventually deciding to invest in my own system to experience it for myself. I got really excited and spent probably-too-much on various components on eBay over the last few weeks to piece together the system you see here.

 

So far I have...

  • Silver/Black Console
  • Composite cables
  • Joystick adapter
  • Speech Synthesizer
  • Disk Controller sidecar
  • TI Floppy Drive
  • TI Program Recorder

 

I also picked up a ribbon cable to extend the sidecars under the shelf for a nice tidy look, and I have one of the modern 32k sidecars with a 3D printed case on order but it hasn't arrived just yet.

 

Up next I plan to pick up a Lotharek floppy emulator and find a respectable desk to put it all on. :)

Actually what you have is likely much more representative of the average "expanded" system back in the day. Peripheral expansion boxes were very expensive and few were made. Nice!

You've got one of the best extender cables made too--that one has all of the right KELAM-style connectors on it.

:-D  It's a great monitor! So many different connections in the back. I found two of them at a thrift store a few months ago and I really regret only buying one of them. I went back for the other one the next day and it was gone.
