    Which new Mac is the right one for me?

    I think I answered the point about the stuff not being on board already (in short, I prefer the form factor), but since you asked about titles: ... here's what's on it. There's actually more than what's here, but I haven't hacked Nanosaur yet (it's the iMac version and it has a lockout), and...

    iMac G3 ... with a little sumthin' extra.

    So today I picked up a blueberry iMac G3 (tray-loading 333MHz) as a board and system spare for my strawberry iMac which I plan to put in the music/guest room, but it came with a bonus ... not only was it in the proper (if wrong colour) iMac G3 box, it also sported a 600MHz Sonnet HARMONi card...

    Classic Mac OS will survive Y2038 (and maybe longer)

    One of the bugs I fixed in Classilla 9.3.2 was an issue with cookies far in the future overflowing the 32-bit time value in the classic Mac OS. Interestingly, this value is unsigned, unlike the regular time_t in OS X, which is signed. It is well-known that 32-bit time_t values have a Y2038...

    I really liked bbraun's Toy Room, so I did one of my own. These count as conquests, right? http://www.floodgap.com/etc/machines.html

    Philips hue

    I picked up the Philips hue wireless lights to play with, and, well, they're not cheap, but they sure are cool. Especially since they can be directly manipulated through HTTP, so I threw together a command line tool for that. http://www.floodgap.com/software/huepl/ It's really fun to control...

    TAM gets buzzed, joyrides in my car, texts Lindsay Lohan for

    I'm testing Classilla 9.3.1 out this morning on the TAM by posting to 68KMLA from it (yes! :) more later). I'm noticing the more I use the TAM, though, that it develops a really annoying buzzing like the system bus is leaking into the audio. It doesn't happen right away; a hard power down...

    OMAN: Power Mac citizens, time to infest App.net!

    If you are like me and paid your $50/yr (well, I paid for developer tier, so $100/yr) for App.net, then dang it, there should be a Power Mac client. It's basic, but it works. http://www.floodgap.com/software/oman/ I'm @doctorlinguist there. Rawr.

    not a Mac: HP Visualize C8000

    Picked up a HP Visualize C8000 for a nice price, the last of the HP-UX PA-RISC workstations. This one is well-equipped with a FireGL-UX card (the same as the ATI professional FireGL series), dual-core 1.1GHz PA-8900 CPU and a gig of RAM. I'd have it booted and ready to show, but it does not like...

    Rockwell AIM-65

    Purchased from a fellow collector. This is a 6502-based system with an LED display and a printer (both 20-column), essentially an upgraded KIM-1. This unit has an assembler and BASIC as well, and is obviously in great shape. I love these 6502 trainers. http://www.floodgap.com/iv/1601

    Disk Tools floppy that can boot a TAM

    All of the Disk Tools floppies (7.6, 8.0 and 8.1) I have tried on my TAM crash it. Does anyone have a *floppy* image that boots a TAM or know of one? Yes, I can boot it from CD, but I want to create a boot floppy for a project.

    Bad news: MacClip Jr tanks with 601 card

    I was hoping that the 601 Power Macintosh card in my Quadra 800 would go from 66 to 80MHz when I clockchipped the Q800 from 33 to 40 (since it will run at 80 in the 840AV). Alas, after a startup sound and a pause, it then goes into the chimes of death. (Incidentally, since I don't see this...

    Found in the bowels of my storage lockers

    So it's not so much conquest as "repossession" 8) I had totally forgotten I had these. - A boxed Newer Technology MacClip, which I bought in a liquidation sale "just in case." This is going on my Q800, which will bump the CPU from 33MHz to 40MHz, and the 601 card from 66MHz to a blistering...
