    Consulair 68K MDS 2.0 complete in box

    Really good idea. I use original hardware for the most part, but Inside Macintosh on iPad.

    Consulair 68K MDS 2.0 complete in box

    Nice. I managed to get my hands on the Apple branded one last year — have had an eye out for this. I probably don’t really need both. I’ve been trying to learn it using Dan Weston’s book — volume I of this guy...

    A new 128k! Virtually perfect case, keyboard and numeric keypad, external 400k drive and mouse. Original Macintosh with red battery compartment interior, but boots to this: Any ideas? Pina has this symptom but for a 512k. Haven’t opened the case yet — it may have been upgraded.

    And at the other end of the spectrum, the 68000 Development System assembly programming environment. Quite pleased with this one.

    Whelp, as is my wont it's been a while between drinks, but time to go through some of my recent software conquests. First we have a game I've wanted for ages: Thexder, here photographed poorly.

    Another drive to Sydney over the weekend. This time for this *immaculate* platinum Plus, in its box, with accessories, manuals, and external floppy drive. There are even two yellow plastic disk head protection inserts! Warms the cockles of my heart because this is exactly the computer I had when...

    MacTablet...maybe not.

    One thing that confused me for a while: it seems you need to launch the desk accessory the installer installs before it’ll work. Each boot. I assume that loads some resources in pre-init System Software.

    So, we know that power supply works. Note also the complete in box one on US eBay at the moment. If someone buys it, please scan the manual.

    Thanks Volvo and Frank. There are a few companies selling US plug equipment in Australia. I’ll have a hunt to find the cheapest option. I will get there.

    And the f*#+~ng thing won’t fit in the transformer. So I have to buy a US power board. Siiiiiiiiiigh.

    Hi all - I've decided to have a very modest crack at blogging. I'm attempting to use my 128k for constructive work, and I figured writing about the process might be fun. 128k.site has it. I'm still working out how to WordPress, so bear with me.

    MacTablet...maybe not.

    (Also, of course, this could be a totally different adaptor with the same plug. My MacTablet might blow up. I’ll let you know.)

    MacTablet...maybe not.

    Right. So I bought a PC-based Summagraphics tablet on the off chance that it had the same adaptor, and it looks like it does. Restricted to North American voltages unfortunately, so I’ll need to get an inverter before I can plug it in to check which pin’s which. However, it’s a Sino-American...

    Definitely a good day. The problem is now I get high blood pressure walking into my garage — there’s not enough space!!
