  1. Today
  2. Hi Guys, some years ago I got myself a lovely se30. It had some problems with the screen, so me and a friend we opened it, fixed it (well, he did it :) ) and in the process we removed an already installed board. I then proceeded to forget about it until now that it came to my attention again. I can't find a single reference to this model everywhere. Either I'm not that good at searching or this board wasn't that good/famous/ whatever. It might help saying that I am in Italy. I'm posting 2 pics. It's obviously a board to connect an external color monitor /any idea which monitor eventually?) but that said I have zero other information about capabilities, drivers, software or whatever! Any help? Thanks, Ivan
  3. The simplest thing would be to rewrite it in C - that'd probably get it down to about 200k...

    Wifi Extension Development Thread

    Was thinking about this at work. Might a your extension be streamlined to the bare bare essentials in System memory, but set up to make the equivalent of toolbox calls to the balance of the driver at locations within extended ROM space for Plus/SE/Classic?

    If you can get it set up to run from a custom ROM in the SE and Plus, that might be a significant achievement? Dunno if an extension can reside in ROM space, but might be worth a look?

    Proper Mac Plus ROM split HI/LO

    I *have* recapped the analog board in June. The pattern + long delay appeared after the logical board recap which I did after.
  8. That's the problem. The extension itself is over 2mb in size, and it's memory requirement is set to 4mb. On a SE/30 with 128mb of RAM that's of course not an issue, but I didn't realise the SE's maximum memory was so low! The reason the extension is so big is due to a combination of factors: It's written in C++. The C++ library is almost 1mb in size. I could rewrite it in C, but that's a big job and I'm not much of a C programmer. The extension relies on a number of other libraries. The biggest on is iconv at almost 1mb which is used to convert UTF-8 text to MacRoman - however this is only required if you plan to use the Spotify app I wrote. Attached is a version of MacWifi with a reduced memory requirement of 1.5mb. I've removed the iconv library from this build, but I've kept the logging code in for now. Give it a go, but unfortunately it's not going to leave you with much free RAM for other applications. MacWifi.APPL.sit

    Belkin F5U015 USB to SCSI adapter drivers

    Awesome! Usually I try a keyword search of the web archives. That didn't work so well, so I went to Belkin.com circa 2002 and worked my way back in time until the download page product category selector worked properly. I wasn't expecting the downloads to be archived, but in this case they seem to be. Usually I'll get a filename from a link and then search elsewhere for that.

    Belkin F5U015 USB to SCSI adapter drivers

    Thanks! Got it working! What's the best way to search web.archive.org for something like this? Or do you just go www.belkin.com from 2000?

    Proper Mac Plus ROM split HI/LO

    Your ROMs are identical to the 0341-342 C and 0342-342 B and this is Rev. 3. I think you should recap your analog board. The voltages may be unstable because the caps have leaked. Check the voltages at the floppy port! Must be 5V, 12V and -12V.

    https://web.archive.org/web/20000829060246/http://www.belkin.com/support/tech/USBdownload.html Looks like that should do the trick
  13. Anyone have (or know where I can find) Mac OS 8/9 drivers for a Belkin F5U015 USB to SCSI adapter? The manual seems to imply they existed: https://usermanual.wiki/Belkin/BelkinF5U015TpwUsersManual230843.2045899695.pdf I also wonder if these turn of the century USB to SCSI adapters used the same chipset so maybe drivers for other vendors similar products would work...

    Picked up a Mac IIci with some accessories!

    ROM card is optional; the on-board ROM is used if the jumper is set.

    FUN CHALLENGE: 2006 iMac in 2019

    And, of course, the challenge explicitly stated you could run whatever OS you wanted. So, running an iMac5,2 with Windows 10 or Linux on it is basically the same experience as running a brand new $200 HP Stream 14 with Windows 10 or Linux on it, as far as the challenge is concerned, just physically bigger.

    Proper Mac Plus ROM split HI/LO

    Welp, I couldn't wait so I tried swapping them. First 15 seconds: garbled stripes pattern (I'm getting this with my less fussy Mac Plus as well post-recap job. I'm not sure what causes this in either machine) Then a Beep and grayscale screen for another 15 seconds (this is an improvement! When I started this summer, the bad ROM chips this Mac had gave me a sad mac) Then the insert disc icon! It boots archon! I made my 2 year old daughter listen to the wicked intro tune. WOO, finally a win after so many dead-ends on several projects this summer!

    Proper Mac Plus ROM split HI/LO

    @dochilli here are the files. I named them "allegedlyLO" and "allegedlyHI" allegedlyHI.BIN allegedlyLO.BIN
  20. Hi, I'm new to this wonderful forum and I just got a really cheap IIci with a little bit of work to do. It seems the SMD-capacitors leaked a little bit and left some components with nasty green legs I already got replacement caps and removed the old ones very carefully. As I can see the pads are still in "working" order. Any recommendations for cleaning the green stuff?
  21. How much RAM is in your SE?
  22. Agreed. A more interesting challenge, I think, would be to try plodding along with a midrange G4 (like, say, a Quicksilver@933 MHz or a PowerBook@867 MHz, both with max RAM) if going Mac, or an early-ish Pentium 4 for PCs (believe it or not, P4s can still work! The early ones are miserably slow, but even at that they can do almost anything a modern PC can, and with patience, one can still daily drive it). c

    Wifi Extension Development Thread

    On the SE with System 7.1, no file generated... The .txt file is generated immediately on the iMac running 9.2.2, and it seems to write to it just fine there as it goes through the process of logging in. No such luck on the SE. Out of curiosity, since things are behaving weirdly here, is the processor of the computer at all relevant? It seems that it should not be, but I don't know if anyone has successfully gotten this working on anything other than an SE/30... I am certainly grasping at straws, and there is always a chance that something is not right on my end. Thanks for implementing logging to help figure this out. I can connect to the internet just fine on the SE as is, and the Wifi extension is working on an iMac running 9.2. Looking forward to seeing if you get better results than I do with thread manager.

    IIc and IIGS Key Caps - Interchangeable?

    Short answer, No. I tried this with an ESC key and found that not only the key itself was too tall for the //c board, but the orientation of the switch was vertical on that particular key as opposed to horizontal on the //c. I'm not sure if that holds true for the option key, but in either case, it will stick out noticeably from the rest of the board.

    Connecting Apple IIgs to PowerBook 1400c

    Hello 68000, Yes, I will be running GS/OS as soon as my drive arrives, have the floppies but my 3.5 drive turned out to be Mac only. Thanks so much! Brad Hansen

    Powerbook 180c chime, then death chime

    Incidentally - in case anyone hadn't got it written down - the PB180C uses a Sharp LQ9D01A display - these are *still* available as they were also used for industrial use - have seen a fair few on ebay and Alibaba/aliexpress for cheap.

    Powerbook 180c chime, then death chime

    I've got a 2A model PSU - I bagged a 2nd PB180C from Japan on buyee - cost a bit more than i want to admit by the time shipping was factored in, but it came with all the original floppies, manuals, box, even a video output cable. However, still no PSU with that one, either. Now, the Sharp screen panel was melted (looks like someone spilled acetone on it), but i swapped out the panel from my buggered 180C from previously (whole display assy swapped, inverter and all). This one plugs in, turns on, chimes, white screen for about a second, then it turns off completely. Press power button again, chime, white screen, turns off... This one has a battery in it at least - seems to not turn on when there's a battery in it, only if it's not in - i'm guessing PRAM battery is totally discharged and needs to be replaced or just charged?
