Washington Apple Pi

A Community of Apple iPad, iPhone and Mac Users

Telecommunications Mothership

Washington Apple Pi's telecommunications complex (for the past couple years) is centered around an AppleShare 3.0 file server running variously on a Macintosh IIfx (out of picture to the right), a Quadra 700 (on the left), an SE/30 (out of picture to the right, or maybe the left, or maybe up) and a PowerBook 140 (around somewhere), depending on the current set of bizarre circumstances. The bright light you see in the center of the picture is the forthcoming arrival of a Rhapsody-based 1000 MHz PowerPC server. A combination of technology that hasn't been invented yet and the installation of lead shielding has delayed the public premiere of these technologies.
