Mike’s Thing

by Michael Thyng

A collection of tidbits worth nothing

What is a color monitor worth to you? One of our number has access to same and will consider all serious offers… If you want 16K chips, tell us. We would have to buy a large quantity, true, but we have to know how many we can handle before we approach a manufacturer. We feel we could do something for under $250. Speak now or forever hold your chips. We have to get moving on this one. CALL -A. P. P. L. E. has sent word of our existence via news release s to seven major periodicals and Northwest Computer Club.

When you read about us, tell Valor Mike. Need to see an up and running printer? See Tom Geer at Empire Electronics or Larry Meece at the Bellevue Omega Stereo. Perhaps by the time you read this, Max Cook at Computerland will have one up also. He has several models on order that will interface with Apple.  Empire will loan back is sue s of Kilobaud to members of this group. .. And, this is a good place to mention that we are grateful to those three gentlemen for the fine support they have offered us, including mailing this newsletter. Remember too, if you are thinking of ordering something by mail, they can order for you for the same price and make a bit on it also. SUPPORT your supporters! …and they can help you with your problems, as well. All are in weekly contact
with Apple Computer, so don’t hesitate to ask.

Don Williams has been kind enough to offcr to teach classes in assembly language programming. Is anyone interested in learning?  If so, let’s bring it up at the meeting. Please note that the meeting notice on Page 1 covers both March and April me-clings. Call-A.P.P.L.E. for May will list the place and date of
the May meeting only, and will be issues about the 1st of May…

Val and I need your input to keep this newsletter growing and glowing. .. Submit comments, questions, programs, anything and everything. Don’t worry that your questions may show a lack of knowledge. . . 75% of the members of this group have NEVER USED a computer before. We are all beginners, and WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU.  Ask, be in the know about your Apple II.  That is the function we are providing.
