    MLA Forum Access from Older Macs

    I was actually thinking of something like a custom telnet/BBS interface that uses the IP.Board API on the backend.
  2. I may be stirring the pot here a bit, but do any of you access this forum from your classic Macs? With all of the recent discussion about more modern web browsing, I was curious if anyone's ever considered building something like a telnet interface to this site.

    SE/30 64MB RAM Upgrade

    Thanks everyone! I opened it up last night and put 4 of the original 1MB SIMMs in Bank B and it started up immediately. My hope was to only use the new SIMMs since they are 60ns vs the 80ns originals, but I can always max it out at 128 later if I want.

    SE/30 64MB RAM Upgrade

    Just bought 4x16MB SIMMs from OWC, whose SIMMs I understand to be compatible with the SE/30. Filled bank A -- no RAM in bank B. Powered on and got chimes of death and vertical bars on the screen. I had the board cleaned and recapped several months ago and all of the slots look pristine. The repair SE/30 page shows this configuration (and only this configuration) as "No Good". What's the deal? Is this configuration bad for some reason?

    ADB Switch

    Thanks -- I've cast enough doubt on the s-video switch to not try it. Wound up at a LEM page about the Dr. Bott MoniSwitch device: http://lowendmac.com/1998/moniswitch-adb-a-kvm-for-adb-macs/ Dr. Bott looks like it is still in business but they only reseller they list doesn't appear to ship to the US. Anyone familiar enough with this to know how to get one here?

    ADB Switch

    I'm looking for a way to switch a single ADB keyboard/mouse between a couple of Macs and a IIGS. Is this a thing? I was looking on eBay and found this s-video switch. Any reason something like this wouldn't work (accepting of course to NOT switch the devices while anything is on)? http://www.ebay.com/itm/4way-Port-ABCD-manual-switch-box-SVHS-S-Video-Super-VHS-4pin-DVD-HDTV-PC-TV-Out-/122147640900

    MAC Plus Sad Face 03c510

    That's the Apple Joystick II, isn't it? IIRC this is a DB9 connector normally. I think you're right, this isn't compatible with the Mac.

    SE/30 Bus/Address Errors

    I got my logic board back from Uniserver and I no longer get those bus error bombs I was getting before! Does anyone have any recommendations for an SE/30 web browser? MacWeb seems to never finish loading a page and iCab just hangs after it starts rendering. I'm inclined to think it's not a hardware problem with my ethernet adapter, since Fetch and Network Time work just fine.

    LC 475 PPC Upgrade

    Thanks for the info! I guess these are probably rare, then?
  10. Is the IIe card something you could plug the floppy emulator up to? http://www.bigmessowires.com/floppy-emu/

    LC 475 PPC Upgrade

    I've got a working LC 475 and as I recall when we bought it there was some promise of a future upgrade path to PPC. Specifically, I seem to recall there being an Apple-provided upgrade path. Is this a thing? If so, what are the options?

    SE/30 Bus/Address Errors

    A few days ago I was looking for a SCSI2SD mounting bracket and found one right here! https://68kmla.org/forums/index.php?/topic/24466-scsi2sd-mounting-bracket-for-se30/ I'll probably 3D print one of these one I've got the SE/30 back up and running (and get a SCSI2SD adapter)

    SE/30 Bus/Address Errors

    That doesn't really surprise me. If I recall, I installed the drive in this when I first got it and I can't remember if that caddy was in there or not. My plastic molding won't hold the LED, it's basically flush with the case. I was looking to see if I could find a replacement that does have the LED holster in it. I came across this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Macintosh-SE-Or-SE-30-Hard-Drive-Caddy-Holder-Bracket-Tray-Apple-/331731663952?hash=item4d3cbf7c50:g:zbMAAOSwnH1WbQmm But this one doesn't look like the one in SE30_Neal's pictures, either. In fact, this eBay one looks like it's missing the tabs to hold it in place.

    SE/30 Bus/Address Errors

    Ah-ha! I found the LED pins on the bottom of the drive. For whatever reason, removing the drive from the caddy never occurred to me This is another story. My caddy doesn't have the spot for the LED to mount! Were there models that shipped with a different one?

    Hard Drive Installable Games?

    Will these games not run from a mounted floppy image? I haven't run across anything like that, yet...
