It was only fair to show Steve how the Future meets the Past as I handed him my Apple II CFFA project card - a SSD (Solid State Drive) based on CF card for the Apple II family. This project was developed by Richard Dreher - a firmware engineer at Cray Inc.
This is my CFFA 2.0 card - I have 90% of my entire collection of vintage Apple II software on the CF Card! (yes! games too - who can live without a weekly game of Pac-Man or Space Invaders). The CFFA (Compact Flash For Apple) supports directly ProDos and GS OS partitions and also supports DOS 3.3 volumes via Dos Master.
Well, the card is now officially "Woz" certified! :-) Steve was very impressed with this piece of hardware (tnx Rich!!) but couldn't resist asking me the question - "Why do you guys, do this? What is it about the Apple II?" My answer was - "I hoped that you'll be one of the few who can understand it, Steve".IIgs computers - the bottom one is a ROM03 machine. The top one - ROM01, Limited "Woz" edition and now *Ultra* Limited edition with the real signature of the Master!
