You’re happy if you GNO it

Posted Mon, Aug. 27th 2012 in Echoes of KFest (video)

GNO/ME is an open source UNIX-like extension for the Apple IIgs. Version 2.0.6 was released in 1999 (presented at KFest for the very first time in 2020) and has been often described as a central component to what would be included if GS/OS would have advanced. Topics covered by Geoff Weiss include how it compares with modern UNIX operating systems and what it will take to port code. Video courtesy Ed Eastman.

Bite the Bag is a party game that is also a KansasFest tradition. For the second year in a row, Geoff Weiss hosted this event at Rockhurst University for KFest 2011 attendees. Many dared and many fell in this battle of balance.

The Golden Age of the Apple II

Posted Thu, Jul. 21st 2011 in

The Apple II was in production from 1977 to 1993. From early interest to broad adoption to being over shadowed by the Mac, followed by cancellation, diehard support, and retrocomputing revitalization, the machine has survived many eras and purposes. What was the golden age of the Apple II? What constituted its heyday, and how long did it last — assuming it’s already over, or has even happened? Jason Scott will moderate this panel consisting of Bob Bishop (Apple Computer Inc.), Steve Weyhrich (Apple II History), and Geoff Weiss (Juiced.GS).
