The return of Sean’s garage

Posted Fri, Jul. 15th 2011 in News

As last year, Sean Fahey will again be donating oodles of Apple II wares to KansasFest attendees. Saturday morning at Rockhurst, attendees will awaken to find a treasure trove of hardware, software, and literature, courtesy Sean and James Littlejohn, who will also provide transportation of the goods to Rockhurst. The items are made available to interested parties on the following conditions:

  • If Sean and James got it for free, it will be freely given to someone else.
  • They’ll accept donations but certainly don’t expect them.
  • Take what you need. Just don’t take something and then turn right around and put it on eBay, or worse, sell it at the vendor fair.
  • If you’re after something special, let Sean and James know ahead of time your name can be put on it.
  • No premium items (accelerators, RAM cards, etc) are being given away. Sales might be considered, though — ask if you’re looking something special.

To make this event happen, Sean and James ask for a few volunteers for the following tasks Friday night:

  • Help unload the bus, and then reload what isn’t taken back into the bus.
  • Help sort loose sets of disks. I’m afraid that during the “keep it or give it away” phase of the packing, some sets of things like Publisher, Print Shop and operating system disks were chunked into the totes loose. They need to be matched up. Think of it as a Apple II themed memory game.

Relatedly, Dean Nichols has also indicated that “I have much more [Apple II gear] than I will ever use, and would be pleased to find much of the stuff a good home”, presenting yet another opportunity for KansasFest attendees to share the wealth. He is currently taking requests.
