Posting to Facebook from an Apple //e

Apple2e_FB_posting

Darren Crawford has managed to do what no one ever considered possible:  Post a Facebook posting from an Apple //e computer.   In what is a first ever event, Darren posted his message using a combination of Lynx and the mobile version of the  Facebook website.

It wasn’t just an instant success, but instead was a work of some trial and error.   In discussions in the A2C.Chat channel of A2Central’s IRC, much of the discussion was about issues with character loss and echoing characters.  However, after correcting an initially incorrect jumper setting, the posting was on.

You can check out the Facebook posting in the Apple II Enthusiasts group at:
