    Portable StyleWriter - driver for >7.1.1?

    I was given a Portable Stylewriter, which is an Apple-branded Canon BJ-10 with included Parallel-to-Serial adapter. It works like a charm with my Color Classic in 7.1.1, and apparently it also works well with the Newton, though I haven't tried this yet. But no dice at all for me on the Color...

    Getting files on/off A/UX in QEMU

    You're right - the disk format wasn't the problem, and transferring them over from an HFS volume was part of the solution. Turns out I just needed to strip the resource fork from the files after moving them into the A/UX file system. For anyone reading this in the future, there's a built-in...

    Getting files on/off A/UX in QEMU

    I have A/UX 3.1.1 up and running in QEMU, but as it stands I seem to have no way to get files on or off of the unix partition: The FTP client that comes installed requires active mode, which doesn't work with my router Any binary/executable files loaded via a Macintosh disk don't work when...

    A little late to the party, but this is so great! Thanks for all your work on this Bolle and everyone who helped out.

    A Crazy Question - do I need a fan? (CC)

    I was watching an old episode of the Computer Chronicles today in which Charlie Oppenheimer (Mac product manager) points to the fan inside the SE and says, "this is required for any machine with an internal hard drive." Well, like many of us, I've replaced the internal hard drive in (in this...

    Do I need RF shielding?

    Just opening up an old Mac and discovered its metallic shielding is completely missing. Having done a quick bit of forum searching and googling, I'm still unsure: Do I need it, either for my or the computer's welfare? If I do, does anyone have any recs for the foil I should buy to cut out...

    SE30 Board - Bombs away?

    I picked up an SE30 today which lo and behold had an exploded Maxell inside. I’ve given it a good rinse and a good scrub, but it’s pretty bad.    I’ve never had a Maxell issue of my own before, so curious to hear from from others: is this board too damaged to help, as I fear it is? (If so...

    Treasure trove of floppies

    I'm going to be away from the old Macs for about a month, so I thought I'd post what I've got so far for those interested. Archive.sit has mostly stuff that seems to be online already - though I think a few new sub-version numbers. TOPS is in there as well. NumberMaze is cute and worth checking...

    Treasure trove of floppies

    @Crutch you're right on all counts. They're 400k MFS disks, but the main program disk seems to be missing. Until I get these up somewhere properly, here's the archive of disks 2 (Libraries) and 3 (Utilities), attached. @LaPorta good call – I'll stick with Stuffit 1.5.1. @cheesestraws I don't...

    Treasure trove of floppies

    A fellow on my local Craigslist sold me what must be at least 200 floppies full of Mac software from the late 80's/early 90's for $5 this week. Most of them are 800k disks. There's even a (sadly overwritten and written on) official LisaDraw floppy! Nuts! I'm going to slowly image and stuff...

    “There isn’t enough memory to work with another disk”

    Hello all - new member here!   I picked up a 128k about a week ago which seems to be in good working order. The previous owner reports having rehabbed the disk drive and replaced some of the ram chips (with sockets added). I haven’t opened it up yet, as I’m still waiting on my long T15. I...
