I’m in the process of harvesting files from my old Mac, in preparation for getting rid of it. I’m having to use floppies to transfer anything I want to keep, so that’s forcing me to be pretty selective. It’s just as well, I have no reasons beyond sentiment to keep anything.
However, I am definitely keeping all the old letters to friends, and the homemade graphics, and even some college papers and other writings. I haven’t looked at a lot of this in a very long time, and I am glad to have the chance to see it now.
This’ll be the first time since 1984 that I haven’t owned some sort of Apple computer. I’m not quite nostalgic enough to keep this one around, though. It’s a Performa, which was bad enough when it worked. The modem and ethernet card are both dead, and for years it hasn’t displayed any red in its colors.
