Wiki/Pages article ideas

Branching off of that - a list of the best solvents (or a guide in general) on how to rebond cracked plastic.
In the mean time while the wiki is still down I could add that to my website if anyone would like to help.

I think @Trash80toHP_Mini proposed that, I like the idea, do we have the references built or a draft?

In general once the wiki comes back I'm happy to help people adapt content for it, but I can't create that particular knowledge on my own.

A draft exists only in my head :)
I've heard a bunch of different recommendations (and reasons why said recommendations won't work well) in a bunch of different threads. It seems like a good bit of confusion that should be cleared up.

Whenever the wiki returns (hopefully soon), I'd like to write some articles and work on improving it alongside my own website. It's always a good idea to get valuable information backed up in multiple locations, just in case the wiki (or my site) go down at some point.

Reminded of this thread:


Index of "things to do with networking" would be great, above and beyond things like how to use the 755NAD or how to connect to an ASIP server from a 7/8/9 boot CD (do all of those even have networking?)

one more idea for drafts: The forum software isn't super great for drafting wiki/knowledge type articles, if anyone was interested I could create a OneDrive folder or a SharePoint online site, you'd just need a Microsoft account of some kind to be able to auth in and add/edit things.

I'm tempted to say a Teams instance (I have an O365 business account I can use to instantiate one) but I don't know that I want to go too far down the path of making another "chat" space and I like the sharepoint interface better than the Teams one for document workspaces.

Article idea, if slightly self-serving: HD20/TashTwenty/Floppy-Emu-in-HD20-mode compatibility, including what machines have support in ROM, what machines can have it added via ROMinator or similar, and different ways of connecting one (internal secondary header, internal primary header with IC clip or bodge wire) and why you can't connect it to the secondary header on the SE...

Self-serving or not, I like that idea.

The matter of which Macs support HD20 mode, and which ones don't and why they don't is one that could stand some clarification; in the past when Apple's KB articles were considered definitive, things were easy (HD20 mode on the 512ke, Plus, and a handful of other early models with external floppy ports), but now that all these discoveries have been made, HD20 emulators have been invented, etc., things aren't so simple anymore, because now we can have HD20 work-a-likes in machines that were never before thought to support HD20 mode, and we can add such support to certain machines that didn't originally).

Update to above:
one more idea for drafts

We had a discussion about this in the IRC channel and have decided to use my personal wiki at https://doku.stenoweb.net/doku.php?id=start as a holding space for drafts, until the wiki is up. I will transcribe anything for the MLA that gets posted on doku.stenoweb.net, once our wiki is back.

The update on the wiki itself is that wthww and I have a work session scheduled, but no promises as to what will be the first thing to happen or when it will be.

I'm still open to the idea of hosting a wiki drafts folder on something a little easier that doesn't require I build accounts by hand, such as a shared folder out of my OneDrive. I'm willing to do editing for clarity, tone, facts, and also do transcribing into the wiki environment by hand.

One more thought: As you poke around my wiki, be aware that a lot of what's on there truly is personal editorial. I've tried to mark it and that kind of stuff (like my personal opinions about Zip drives) probably aren't coming over to the main 68kMLA wiki.

I think it would be great to have on the wiki section dedicated to the conversion of ATX PSU to various OEM PSU replacments. A resource all in one place with the pin outs and info for the different machines would be great, right now that info is spread all over the internet for different machines in various threads and different forums, and random websites etc.
