    Don't let the shape of that printer port deter you. For the purposes of printing, it's the same as a mini-Din 8 on any newer Mac. You can get an adapter cable for it. This picture below shows the...

    I have a II Plus with a Rev 3 board in it, dated 1979. I think it makes more sense to keep the Rev 4 board with that complete machine.

    Type in the Integer BASIC listing in the Red 1978 Reference Manual. That way you'll be extra period correct: typing in from a printed listing, and having the 1977-8 version of the game. ;-)

    That's not correct.

    SMI stands for Self-Mounting Image. Disk Image Mounter under OS X, versions 10.0 thru 10.6 will mount them.

    How do you know it's the drive at fault and not your disks? Do you know that the boot disks are OK?

    I see that you used it in an Apple Lisa, but sure, you could plug it in to the LC's internal floppy connector in place of the SuperDrive.
