    StuffIt Expander 5.5 super slow on an SE/30?

    Also, make sure you have ExpanderEnhancer installed. That's included with DropStuff. Without ExpanderEnhancer, Stuffit will be super duper extra slow.

    Reverse Engineer the PowerKey by Sophisticated Circuits?

    Yeah. There was a hidden screw, although I don't recall if it was under a sticker or some rubber. No clips.

    Hack on a MessagePad is pretty awesome. I still play NetHack over at alt.org.

    My first 68k Mac - Macintosh SE 2x 800k

    @Jase If you decide to upgrade the RAM, just be extra careful with those plastic clips on the RAM slots. They will break if you're not careful. Sometimes they break anyway. You wanna just barely flex it enough for the SIMM to squeeze out as you pull the SIMM forward. I typically use my...

    NUBUSPAS16-DB :: A daughterboard hack to restore some functionality of a standalone MediaVision PAS16

    @Arisotura They used to sell them on Mouser, Digikey, etc. Don't know if it's still true. Edit: Never mind. I don't see any.

    Timbuktu on GlobalTalk

    I've been meaning to sign up for GlobalTalk. Would be fun to do some AppleTalk games.

    Faulty Radius PC 24X - looking for repair tips

    I never tried using the 24AC ROM. Is there any advantage to using the Apple one over the Radius?

    13" Hi-res monitor softness

    If you haven't already, wouldn't hurt to spray some Deoxit into those pots.

    Transformers for homemade LocalTalk/PhoneNet dongles

    What if pins 1 & 6 were connected anyway, but separated with a jumper. That way if someone does manage to write a driver, then people who have an adapter would just need to jumper the last two pins to upgrade the speed.

    Battery lasted only 2 hours. Probably why they didn't "compare" it. Spunky little PC laptop, though. I don't know why, but I like the "WinBook" name.

    Help with Radius Thunder IV GX 1600

    Does the old "stacking RAM chips" trick work with video RAM? Something we used to do in the 1980s with Apple IIs and arcades. Could he just buy 1 VRAM chip, then stack it on the other chips one by one until the problem goes away?

    Transformers for homemade LocalTalk/PhoneNet dongles

    I attempted to contribute to this discussion by spending about an hour trying to make a snarky AI generated image of an AppleTalk adapter as a Transformer toy, but I guess there aren't enough images for it to scrape. :(

    Looking for drivers for Interware Vimage - file "VIMAGEPCCARD11.sit"

    I found the archive on the Google Drive, but Stuffit says it's not a valid archive. Looking at the notes, it was downloaded off of Archive.org. Unfortunately Archive.org is blocked by our content filter at work, so I can't look. I think your best bet is to go to Archive.org and look up...

    Superdisk drive: Initialization is not possible

    I might take my external one apart just to see if it works with a generic ATAPI-to-USB adapter. That might be a cheap solution. Edit: Also might let you keep it internally mounted if you get a USB card that has internal USB ports on it. 🤔

    Best solutions for mounting an internal BlueSCSI V2 in an SE/30?

    A few years ago I had designed a side-mountable bracket when I was refurbishing about a hundred SEs and SE/30s (not an exaggeration.) It attached to the side of the drive cage so an SE could still have dual floppy drives + a SCSI2SD. It placed the SCSI2SD to the right of the CRT neck, about a...

    What I've received as of late...

    IIgs was also the only Apple computer that actually had a demo scene. I always wondered how the IIgs would have evolved had the Macintosh never hit the market. It was really impressive for its time, but not as impressive as the Amiga. A IIgs with a bitmap GUI would be interesting.

    Superdisk drive: Initialization is not possible

    @-Micky Yeah, I don't think they ever released IDE drivers. They never intended for it to work outside of the IDE-to-USB adapter & enclosure. Which is a shame. If you stumble upon a SCSI one, it'll behave in a similar way. You could try initializing the disk using something like FWB Hard...
