    Writing an Application that Runs in Mac OS System 1 Using CodeWarrior Gold 11

    The 128K-512K Macs were realistically expensive tech demos. They lacked the memory and applications to be truly useful. Imho, the Plus was the first truly useful Mac. But you're right, the small screen and lack of color hurt the Mac. As far a low-end Mac I think it really took until ~1990 or so...

    Writing an Application that Runs in Mac OS System 1 Using CodeWarrior Gold 11

    Nice summary! Andy Hertzfeld and Steve Capps were geniuses to shoehorn all that functionality into the original Macintosh software.

    MacAmp Mp3 Experiment on PB1400c/166

    SoundJam was/is a great program. I still have my copy around somewhere. I'm still mad the Apple bought it. :mad:

    Macintosh II A/UX for MC68851

    Cool find! $9346 in today's dollars is an eye-popping $24,675. For 16mhz! Interesting that the 851 is "XC". It's a early part and means it wasn't fully qualified at the time it was released.

    $37 USB Microscope on Amazon..Great results!

    So 1600x1200 resolution. Full 1080 would be better but for the price that's pretty good.

    Fantasy M88100 Macs

    I thought I had one of these around somewhere. I remember running (processing) these back-in-the-day at Motorola.

    Quadra 840av Cold Boot Time

    Yes, more ram will increase startup time. In OS9 you can disable the startup memory test. I think that same option is available in 7.6.1. https://happymacs.wordpress.com/2015/01/30/speed-up-mac-os-boot-time-turn-off-ram-tests/

    Always feels like Christmas when you find an unexpected accelerator card

    Neat find! Fully loaded! Someone paid dearly for that package "back-in-the-day". That's an old '030. 1988

    Anyone Recognize This Weird OS On This Proto Mac mini?

    One of those grey labels says Foxconn so these were used for testing components or perhaps inventory tracking, if the GL50B means anything.

    Anyone Recognize This Weird OS On This Proto Mac mini?

    Huh, fascinating. It looks like Chinese to me. Lots of stickers, like they were used for a long time and/or passed around. Where did you come by these? Also, maybe just a coincidence but there is a device called GL50B GPS asset tracker. I wonder if these were used as a test/programming station.

    Anyone Recognize This Weird OS On This Proto Mac mini?

    That blue and white sticker reminds me of Motorola inventory/property tags. Have you translated the text on the other stickers?

    MDD Power Supply options

    After replacing two stock PS's in my Dual 1.25 MDD I installed an ATX PS. It's been working great for several years.

    Macintosh, Lisa, and IIGS Dealer and Developer Floppy Disk trove

    What a great trove! Especially the Lisa/XL disks. Quickmail, that takes me back. I still have work emails from the mid '90's in QM format. I don't know know why.

    Apple PowerCD issues

    I believe the base base part does. The original PS's for these were 10v 1a.

    Porting LinuxDoom to System 7 (or trying to) - progress and questions

    I remember Doom II ran great on my 840av Quadra. With the Simpsons mod it was absolutely hilarious!
