I was providing Apple instruction 35 years ago. Those were the days ...

I remember that the color monitor itself was $300. The Apple II, I think, was over $1200. (disk drive extra)

I will reach my 30th anniversary of Mac use in 2018.
And I have a web site that's been up for 20 years as of this year: http://tintin.eugraph.com.

I got my first Apple II in 1979, so it's about 37 years of Apple products for me.

Ray, were you guys really having as much fun as it looks like in that photo, or were you just smiling for the camera? :D
