I found a wonderful site mentioned in the _Apple II Alive_ magazine I
receive. I previously didn't know of its existance.  I've seen this
question asked on the LM_NET before so I'm postiing it to the whole group.
If you have Apple II's still you HAVE to try this web site.  The FAQs are
wonderful!  Here's the info, and a list of sources.  Copy this one! (sorry
it's so long...I copied and pasted just the sources of Apple II materials!)
