The September 2010 issue in-depth

Volume 15, Issue 3 (September 2010)

As announced earlier today, Juiced.GS Volume 15, Issue 3 (September 2010) has now shipped to all domestic and international subscribers and is available to all new subscribers as well.

As per Juiced.GS tradition, the cover story for our third issue of the year is KansasFest, the annual Apple II convention held in Kansas City, Missouri. Ken Gagne and Mike Maginnis provide a play-by-play report of the sessions and events from this perennial event. If you weren’t able to attend, our coverage should give you an idea of the value this conference offers Apple II users.

At this year’s KansasFest, Martin Haye won the programming contest. In this issue, he provides a brief look at how he crafted the winning entry, while HackFest judge Ivan Drucker gives official insight into what earned this submission first place.

Juiced.GS‘s five-part series on methods to transfer files from an Apple II to a more modern computer continues this issue as Tony Diaz and Ivan offer a thorough tutorial for setting up AppleShare networks. If you don’t know or can’t remember the difference between AppleTalk, LocalTalk, EtherTalk, and Netatalk, this article serves as a useful reference.

We also have reviews of Ewen Wannop’s SAM2 email client for the IIGS and Jason Scott’s Get Lamp text adventure documentary. Are these products worth your time or money? Read our critics’ recommendations.

The My Home Page editorial, the DumplinGS news roundup, and the back-page column round out this issue.

Volume 14, Issue 3 now shipping

Volume 14, Issue 3 (September 2009)

The September 2009 issue of Juiced.GS was mailed this morning to all domestic and international subscribers. This 20-page issue features coverage of not one but two Apple II conventions: KansasFest and Mt. Keira Fest, held the same week in July but a half a world apart. KansasFest also led to two other of this issue’s articles. Peter Neubauer looks at how and why he wrote his HackFest entry, with judge Eric Shepherd offering his insight into what made Peter’s program win the competition; while Ivan Drucker reviews his favorite model of Apple II, which isn’t an Apple II at all.

In the time since our last issue, Juiced.GS announced it would be publishing another four issues in 2010. The September issue usually follows that announcement with a half-page subscription renewal form on the back cover. But who wants to rip that out and mail it in, thus defiling the issue? No need face such a conundrum this year, as the renewal form is now a separate flyer inserted into the issue. This separation also means none of Juiced.GS‘s 20 pages are used up by the subscription form. It’s a winning combo!

As always, every Web site and product mentioned in this issue is linked to from this site’s issue links.
