The SACS Report, Episode 3

The SACS Report was a public-access cable television show produced by the Southern Alleghenies Computer Society of Johnstown, PA, in the early 1990s.  For more background, please see the entry for Episode 2.

I was the moderator of the show, and apparently nobody ever told me not to wear the same outfit twice in a row when you’re on TV.

My guest for Episode 3 was Ben Hauger, who demonstrated an Apple IIgs, including its music-playing abilities (just $50 for a stereo upgrade!) and a variety of games and demos.  Also:  The difficulty of finding the floppy disk you need, and the ability to have more than 16 colors on the screen at once.
