Fixing Time Zone, or What To Do With a 14-Drive Apple II

In this session, I’ll demonstrate my own enhancement to Time Zone, by On-Line Systems, the original epic computer adventure (which came on six double sided floppies and retailed for $100 — in 1982). Time Zone’s Achilles heel was that it was written to use a single drive exclusively, requiring constant annoying disk swaps. No more! Now you can preload your drives with all the disk sides, plus your save disk, and Time Zone will never hassle you again. It will even show you which disks go where. As you wander through time and space in your attempt to save the earth, nothing will stand between you and its two-word parser!
