Apple II hash list to-do work chore
09/02/17 08:19 PM


On occasion, I might see 4AM's Apple II software progress. He retweets this

and wow. If this book is on similar size scale to the 1980s era IBM software "Whole Earth" software catalog book which was printed and was the size of Tolstoy's War and Piece, someone (any typing monkeys) has their work cut out and then some.

Have fun updating the files. :-)

/hash/apple2_cass.xml
/hash/apple2gs.xml




btw: iirc Whole Earth software catalog (book published in 1980s and only IBM software iirc) was a gigantic printed paperback book. I don't know if anyone will be able to complete an entire IBM hash list file for all the IBM software even if able to get access to a Whole Earth software catalog book these days. And the bad thing is many of the IBM software is likely no longer able to be found these days.
