Several people have commented on my poor choice of Apple II models,
namely an Apple IIc.

I think it's important to keep in mind that I don't have a choice. I live

5 1/4 or 3 1/2 floppy drives, the Mac LC Apple IIe card with floppy cable,
An Apple talk card for an Apple IIe, or software, etc and would like to
donate them to my insanity, please contact Sammy Ominksy. He'll make sure
that I get them.

Carp are bottom feeders, koi are too, and not surprisingly are ferrets.
