There are some 3 fundamental rules in life:
1. Never attempt to play Poker with someone named 'Doc'.
2. Never eat in a restaurant called 'Mother’s'.
3. Never try to access the World Wide Web on an Apple IIgs.
Wait … 3 is not even possible, because the IIgs was released in September 1986! So what are we talking about?
Sit down. An individual who’s identity could not be fully revealed, but who is a descendant of H.T. Wyse seems to have too much spare time. And this person successfully implemented a simple but working web browser for this lovely machine - webber.
And since the majority of the daily tasks of an average person could still be done on an old 8-bit machine (as we will see down below): Why not?
The IIgs has a MOS 65C816 at it’s heart, a 16-bit descendant of the 6502. Imagine how much fun it must be, to implement the HTTP protocol and a DOM renderer in 65XX assembly. 😵💫
Well done. Really well done Sir.
