Do you need old system software disks to boot your vintage Mac?

It's fun to look back at old Apple emails. Check them out.

I'm a total Apple addict, as you might tell.

I Visited the Mothership. (Really ths time!)

After years of wanting to blow mad cash at the Company Store, I finally got the chance to visit 1 Infinite Loop.

I was in San Diego for my brother’s wedding. So I took the opportunity to spend a day in Cupertino. I hopped on a flight up to San Francisco airport, rented a car, and rode down to Apple HQ.

It was quite the adventure. All that airport action and car renting/driving just to check out an Apple Store? It was a once in a lifetime opportunity. If anything just to say I was there. Now at least I can wear my “I Visited the Mothership” shirt with pride.

As an added treat, I saw Steve Jobs himself driving past the main entrance as I approached it. He stopped at the crosswalk and looked left, and then drove off. I looked him right in the face. It was totally him. It happened too fast for me to take a picture.

So here it it, 1 Infinite Loop, in all its glory:

Here’s a shot of me, kindly taken by the girl behind the counter.

Totally worth the $230 in airfare/rental just to check the place out and drop some cash on Apple schwag. You can’t get this stuff anywhere else. The crap on eBay are all knockoffs.

Like I said, it was an adventure; something to do on a day in California when my brother had to work, and the wife took the kids to the beach.

Here’s all the Apple goodies I bought. I wish they had some coffee mugs, but they were all sold out.

Yeh, now that’s what I’m talking about! What else would you put in a picture frame that has an Apple logo on it?
