I just made it back from the hamfest in Princeton, IL. It is a really nice day for it – sunny and in the low 80′s.
I purchased a few items, but nothing major. This is what I picked up:
Microsoft Office 2000 Professional & dBase V for Windows – $10.00
Super Star Hits Stamped in Gold 8-track (1981 K-Tel compilation that features “I’m Alright” – Kenny Loggins, “The Tide is High” – Blondie, “Whip It” – Devo, “Don’t Stand So Close To Me ” – The Police) $3.00
2 Power Cords – $1.00
5 paperback books that deal with programming Apple II computers. – $2.00
Total amount spent: $16.00
This afternoon I plan on installing Office 2000 and dBase V on my PowerBook using Virtual PC running Windows XP. With a little luck, they will both install properly…. Right now I’m using Office 95. I find that older versions of Office run better under Virtual PC. The new versions seem bloated and run slower…..
I also want to go out Geocaching some more. There is a cluster of 5 caches that are in the same park – would be fun to go and find them all….
