    Introducing (and interest check) AirTalk: Wireless plug-and-play LocalTalk dongles

    Is the a program that can bridge LToUDP to EtherTalk? I have a couple of Macs setup with EtherTalk and that would let me connect a PowerBook over AirTalk and connect with them. If not, maybe it wouldn't be too hard for me to write. Hmmmm.

    Good first Apple II?

    Macs with the correct extensions can read and write to ProDOS formatted 800k floppies. The IIgs, IIc, and IIc plus have serial ports and you can use serial transfer programs like ADT to move files back and forth. One thing to note is that the IIc uses a larger socket, but there are adapters...

    Apple iigs setup

    You cannot use a Mac monitor as they work on different horizontal frequencies. Shame on Apple for using the same connector. Any composite TV should work, I don't see why the apple composite monitor wouldn't. As long as you use the composite video port on the IIgs. It will be lower resolution...

    Interesting 512k upgrade!?

    On Cue is a pretty sweet utility. For the Finder windows it looks like the previous owner is using this program to make the window resemble NeXT windows. https://macintoshgarden.org/apps/erics-wdef

    Powerbook 180 - Floppy drive irreparable?

    Maybe an obvious question that you've already done, but have you tried cleaning it with a cleaning floppy? It sounds like the drive is mostly working, but maybe the heads are dirty.

    A 'once and for all' declaration regarding L88M mask MC68040 CPUs

    I bought a 02E31F MC68040RC40 from ericwoosrarechips on eBay and it was exactly as advertised, not remarked and fully functional. Out of stock right now but more do appear now and then. https://www.ebay.com/itm/383675636030 I'm glad this thread was bumped because I got to learn about what...

    Consulair 68K MDS 2.0 complete in box

    I just did a comparison between 2.0 and 2.1 with ResCompare and diff and found very few changes: The only program that is changed is Edit. 7 CODE resources are different, most being around 100 bytes longer. The DITL resource for the About box says version 2.1. Finally, the STRG resource is...

    Consulair 68K MDS 2.0 complete in box

    I would be interested as well. I've played a little around with MDS, but i'm lacking any documentation and the build system isn't very intuitive.

    Macintosh Classic II with no sound. Analog board issue?

    Powerbook 180 dead display?

    Oh that's great news! I will look for the issue on my board too. I haven't worked on my broken 180 much recently, excited to see if i have the same problem.

    Powerbook 180 dead display?

    I have a 180 that is doing the same thing. However, I don't think it's the screen that's bad. When i turn it on i get the screen with the horizontal lines, and no sound. If i press the reset button then the lines will change and i can also hear the hard drive spin up and seek. I tried powering...
