Juiced.GS: The Next Generation

Posted Sat, Jul. 24th 2010 in

Hosted by Ken Gagne.

Juiced.GS, now the longest-running and last remaining Apple II publication in print, has been providing retrocomputing enthusiasts with news, reviews, interviews, and how-tos for 15 years. Where do we go from here? The past, present, and future of this quarterly Apple II journal merge in three exciting announcements that will change Juiced.GS forever.

KansasFest & Juiced.GS combo

Posted Tue, Jun. 8th 2010 in News

The KansasFest Early Bird registration rate expired on June 1st, but for those who have not yet signed up to attend this event, there’s an additional incentive: Anyone who registers before July 14th at the currently advertised rates gets a free 2010 subscription to Juiced.GS, the last remaining Apple II publication still in print. Such a deal! No need to jump through hurdles or apply discount codes; just register per usual, either online or off, and your first two issues will be waiting for you in Kansas City. (Offer not valid to current subscribers.)

If you’ve already registered for KansasFest and are not a Juiced.GS subscriber, the magazine’s publisher, Gamebits, will be taking orders at the event’s vendor fair.

KansasFest 2010 session update

Posted Wed, May. 26th 2010 in News

The KansasFest 2010 session lineup, first posted last month, has grown to include several more presentations, courtesy several volunteers willing to offer their insights and expertise to KansasFest attendees:

  • Stavros Karatsoridis will describe how to set up an Apple II to act as a “dumb terminal” for the Terminal application in Mac OS X.
  • Ivan Drucker will debut his original programming utility: Slammer, which allows machine language to be inserted into a standard Applesoft program with practically no performance, dependency, or stability issues.
  • Sometime this summer, KansasFest 2009 keynote speaker Jason Scott will be releasing GET LAMP, his two-disc documentary of text adventures. A special one-hour cut of this film, made exclusively for convention audiences, will be screened at KansasFest.
  • Eric Shepherd, who in 2008 gave a presentation on iPhone programming, will this year introduce us to iPad programming. More than just “a giant iPhone”, the iPad is a unique development environment, and Sheppy will review the differences between writing apps for the two devices.
  • Ken Gagne of quarterly magazine Juiced.GS will make several announcements about the past, present, and future of the world’s longest-running Apple II publication.

Formal sessions are an integral element of the KansasFest experience, offering Apple fans new ways and environments in which to use their favorite machines. The other half of the equation is the camaraderie offered by attendees and presenters: nothing recharges a retrocomputing enthusiast’s batteries as fast as the energy of fellow hobbyists. With less than a week until the Early Bird registration deadline, you should sign up today to enjoy the sessions and friendships that are a hallmark of KansasFest!

We’ll take a look at what goes into Juiced.GS today then ask what you the reader like and don’t like, and what you want to see in future issues.
