I have released four Apple II programs:

Esprit de Apple Corps

Gamebits is the proud vendor of Esprit de Apple Corps, a two-disc set of multimedia files specifically for the Apple II. Over 4,500 MOD song files, 10,000 graphic files, games, sounds, and more are included in this archive. The collection was originally compiled by Russell Nielson and made available on 24 Zip disks, each one retailing at $15. The entire collection, originally a $360 value, was re-released at KansasFest 2001 as a pair of CD-ROMs for only $25 — "well worth the meager investment," wrote Juiced.GS. At KansasFest 2008, EDAC was reclassified as freeware and can now be downloaded from Juiced.GS or the Internet Archive.


I've done some writing for the Apple II community, including a 1999 review of Silvern Castle for Juiced.GS, the last remaining print publication dedicated to the Apple II. In 2002, when founding editor and publisher Max Jones turned over his roles to Ryan Suenaga and Eric Shepherd, respectively, I permanently joined that publication's staff as associate editor and contributing writer. I wrote a quarterly column called A Word or II, a freeform editorial outlet in the vein of current editor Ryan Suenaga's previous column, II Be Named Later. In 2002, I also wrote II the Max (unrelated to the KFest 2001 product of the same name), a "best of"-type feature highlighting the best the Apple IIgs has to offer in various areas. This series was replaced in 2003 by Cover II Cover, which reviews various Apple-related books, and which alternated in 2004 and 2005 with Reel II Reel, wherein I look at various geek films. In 2006, I moved from the position of associate editor to that of editor-in-chief, filling the vacancy left by Ryan Suenaga; Eric Shepherd took over my A Word or II column, renaming it Random Numbers. Midway through 2007 (Volume 12), I assumed the role of publisher as well, taking over for Eric Shepherd and Syndicomm.
