It was a kind of like a puzzle/test in that it showed you a shape and you had to use different machines to replicate the shape/patterns. (rotate, punch out holes, cut to size etc)
    Anyone know what it was actually called or where I might be able to find a copy of it (as an emulation?) TIA
    Can't help you there however anybody remember a Robot game where you built robots in a factory?

    After a bunch more Googling I found a Reddit thread and burried in it was a link to this youtube video review of the game! FYI for anyone else interested

    Hmm doesn't ring a bell. All I remember is there were different parts you could put together and they were fairly large and being at school it had to be educational.

    Did this on the C64 too but we found it more fun to make our own stuff up especially in Game Maker etc

    I typed in a basic Tic Tac Toe program, took hours to type in only to have the program draw or win everytime. You could never win the game so I don't play it.

    This popped up on the Apple II Enthusiasts group on Facebook a couple of weeks back: the BOOTI - a new HDD/disk image card for the Apple II. Made by a guy in Victoria, it plugs into your Apple II (just the C, E & GS I believe) and will happily fire up most .hdv or .2mg files you throw at it. Apparently they're planning to extend that to include .do and other disk images, although apparently it supports some .dsk and .po stuff now.

    Pretty easy usage too. Drop it into Slot 7, then plug a USB key with image files on it into the card. Boot it up and press C to enter the slot assigning configuration - from here it's similar to using flashfloppy or the cortex Amiga disk emulator. Reboot once you're done and it'll either auto-boot whatever image you put in slot 1, or press a number to manually fire that image up instead. Any firmware updates are done via the USB stick too, simply copy the updated file onto the stick, load it into a slot and boot it. Run the update tool once the disk loads and you're done!

    For $74 posted it's also really affordable compared to wDrive, FloppyEmu, CFFA or Turbo Micro/Drive. If you want one, hit up the Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/5251...8903126333677/
