160. Every surface in the gryffindor common room is absolutely covered in graffiti and messages from gryffindors past

‘Ron Weasley woz here’ is scratched into the arms of one of the chairs by the fire

‘Desk graffiti isn’t done for profit or recognition, therefore it is the purest form of art- A.P.W.B.D’ is on the underside of the table nearest the boys dorms

And of course the love heart inscribed with the initials ‘L.E+J.P 1977′ has been permanently scratched into the wall by the window overlooking the black lake

AppleDappleDudes Part 2: Apple I for the win!

Corey Cohen, the reigning expert on Apple I’s (aside from Steve Wozniak himself) brought not one but two authentic Apple I computers in for display.  In order to give visitors a hands-on approach, he also brought in a replica suitcase implementation complete with little black & white monitor.

Corey happens to have an early copy of the Apple I manual, which was photocopied from Wozniak’s hand-drawn master copy notes and instructions.  Seen here is a page about loading Integer BASIC, and another about cassette deck operation.  It’s incredibly informal, but shows the inner machinations of Woz’s mind when he was designing his first computer.

Oh, and then they let me hold one.  So that was cool.  Look at that beautiful white ceramic & gold MOS 6502.
