450+ Rare Files-- Exclusively on Vault!
Look for this emblem to find files, photos, and articles released for the first time only on Vault. These files and photos are most often extremely rare-- not found on any other site! Vault offers you the first opportunity to download these exclusive files and try them out for yourself before the masses do. Make sure to tell your friends about the exclusive content in Vault!
Mac GUI user retrogear notified me that it was impossible to log in using older 5.x versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer on Mac OS 9. I have corrected this problem, so now you can use your Mac GUI account on older MSIE and Netscape web browsers.

The New Apple II User's Guide went on sale about two weeks ago and has attracted a lot of attention and favorable reviews. If you are going to KFest 2012, there will be a surprise for you: 30 autographed copies of the book will be on sale! They should be discounted somewhat from the normal sale price, too.

I am working on adding screenshots to the Apple II games. This is a slow process; it involves running each game in an emulator. I am expecting a new batch of donated Apple II disks to arrive soon. I am also working on obtaining more Usenet posts from the 1990's.
