I know this a bit off topic, but I just wanted to put out a request for some help during the meet.
One of my best friends passed away just over a year ago from a brain tumour. We'd worked together at Sun for many years, and I regularly stayed with him and his family when I was working out of the Camberley offices. In fact, I'm going to be staying with his family during the meet.
When I was helping his widow go through his tech stuff, I found the computer which started it all for him... his Apple II.
I've not yet looked at it closely, but I know that caps in the PSU will need to be changed before we can try to power it on.
His family would very much like to get the computer working again, and it's with this, that I'd really appreciate some help.
Does anyone who's attending know much about the Apple II?
