  1. I found the below in some old binders my dad had in storage. The Basic Reference Manual is some 206 pages, and seems photocopied from an original source (which I haven't found). The DOS II menu options seems to be a portion only from page 38 - 55. The Overview document is about 16 pages. Are these of interest? I'm unsure of how to gauge their value and may put them up for auction eventually; as a thank you to the community I'm considering scanning the two smaller documents, providing it as a resource if there's interest in that. I'm hoping the confidential information warning is moot at this point.
  2. Bumping one last time as I'm hoping to wrap up auctions by the end of next month. I posted more auctions with Apple software and some Atari manuals. Tomorrow I'll be posting magazine auctions for Atari publications (APX, Antic, A.N.A.L.O.G., and The Atari Connection) as well as more manuals, and a Zaxxon Cassette with manual. Thanks for putting up with the bumps and less than on point postings as most of the previous things were Apple related. I've finally finished cataloging everything in storage. Once I figure out how to ship them I'll also be posting auctions for Apple II, IIe, and IIGS with some additional hardware (probably late this month, early next). It seems my dad got rid of all the Atari hardware we had over the years, so unfortunately won't have any of those.
  3. Starting to get through the magazines, and loose manuals and disks will come along some time next month. I've gotten into the flow of posting new auctions every Friday, and expect the number of items to keep me going through September at least.
  4. More auctions just posted with some new things. Going forward, does anyone have thoughts on doing lots for loose disks and cassettes vs. individual listings? I'm not sure what most would prefer.
  5. I'll keep an eye out for it; there were a lot of nibble mags, so I'm thinking there might be a good chance it's there. I underestimated how long it'd take to sort them all by title, so I didn't get a chance to take pictures. Next step is sorting by issue number, and I think I'll take pictures as I do that. If I find that issue, then I'll take pictures of the article for you. To be honest, I don't know what a reasonable price for any of this stuff might be, which is why I'm using ebay to help determine that.
  6. I didn't get to it last weekend, took care of junking some e-waste instead, but I should be able to this weekend. I do remember some COMPUTE! magazines while doing initial sorting, didn't know they had books too. Is it obvious the books are published by them? Maybe I'll try to get through the books as well.
  7. I don't believe it's mold, although can't rule it out. I would expect it to cover more of the box by this point being in storage for some 8 years. Up close it looks like some of the banker boxes these were stored in adhered to the side, and they fused together, causing it to deteriorate. More auctions just posted today. More to come sometime this week, again probably Tuesday or Wednesday.
  8. I'll be cataloging them this weekend (at least the magazines). Then I'll search through archive.org, and set aside any that aren't on there to later contact an archivist that might be interested. Everything else will go on ebay, and if they don't sell there, I'll let you know.
  9. I posted some more auctions tonight, and will have more early next week (probably Tuesday). New items include Z-80 Plus card for Apple II, and an Atari Video Touch Pad.
  10. A lot of vintage related things coming out of my dad's storage. I posted here: Putting the ebay listing here for exposure rather than in that thread: https://www.ebay.com/sch/wildaero/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from= Hope that's the right thing to do. If you have any questions about the listings feel free to contact me. I'll be adding more items soon, so be sure to check back every week or so.
  11. If anyone can help identify the three lose boards I found (first nine pictures), I'd appreciate it. Also, any comments on usefulness of the software and particular books? I can't imagine anyone wanting these. https://imgur.com/gallery/DezY3gX
  12. Thank you. This was helpful. I'll set aside the items that aren't on the archive hoping to get in touch with someone to archive them.
  13. My father recently passed away, and I'm looking for the best way to offload this as most of it is sitting in a storage locker that I'd like to empty as much as possible within a month. I thought this might be of interest to the Apple II enthusiasts still out there. He had a small collection of hardware, a slightly larger collection of software, and an equally as large collection of magazines. Most of them are related to Apple II related, but some other classic platforms are represented. A lot of the software is still sealed in shrink wrap, as I believe he intended to start a business selling it, but didn't follow through. To give an idea: Hardware: There's an Apple IIe and a 5 1/2" disk drive, and some other related hardware components floating by themselves. Unknown if they're actually in working condition. Software: Very little in the way of games (these were sold off a decade ago), although there are still some empty boxes for those -- mostly I'm seeing word processing, Meca OS, SF Apple Core, and things like Basic, Pascal, etc; some tapes (Bomber!, Tarbell Zapple Z-80 2K Monitor, Air Raid, MCOS Source Code, Bright Pen, and a few that say TRS-80 like Galactic Empire), but mostly disks (I haven't started a list of these yet). Magazines: They range from in quality from never touched, gently used, to heavy use but still mostly intact. Nibble, Compilist (I think), AppleSauce (seemed to be a newsletter group he was part of), Hardcore, Byte, SF AppleCore (seemed to be paired with the disks). There are also printed copies of newsletters like Tri-City... something, and an Orange County group. Books: I haven't gone through them yet, but there are a couple boxes labeled Apple books and others that are general computer books, and there are manuals floating around like the user guide for Atari 400/800 (I know we had one in the house growing up, but didn't see it in storage yet--could still be hiding). There was a Z-80.. ZX-80, or something like that manual. Apologies for the lack of a full list, the specifically named ones are from memory as we sorted through quickly this past weekend. I'll be back to the unit to do a full inventory over the next couple weeks. My current plan: List everything on eBay for auction all at once to get the most cross exposure of items. For this thread, I'm looking for help from the community to answer these questions: - What should I be looking for or keeping an eye out to set aside in case it comes to the point of junking everything in order to close the unit (it's costing money every month)? - Where is this the best place to ask for help identifying hardware and software that may not be immediately obvious what it is? - Is there a better place than eBay to list everything? I'd like to find an archivist in the Greater Los Angeles area to digitize the magazines and newsletters if there's interest in doing that. I don't have the time or space to do it myself, and I'd rather not sell it on eBay (current plan) if it means it'd go into another storage collection without being made publicly accessible in a digital format. There's at least 20 banker boxes worth of magazines ranging from late 70s through the 80s. There's also a few tattered general engineering magazines (about the size of old Reader's Digest) from the 60s, not sure if those are of interest.
