oh my... thats cruel anyway xD
yeah, so just leave it as is - a brick is a brick - put it in your shelf
Hmm these Parallel-Interface cards are not that rare..sometimes one pops up for a good price. I trade mine a while ago I didn't need it, because I have a LISA 2/5 with builtin Parallelport - my ProFile just hooks up on that...
You have three options:
1 - get yourself an working Widgetdrive - nearly impossible nowadays
2 - try that X/Profile board - excellent replacement and you can just hookup an ordinary IDE or CF-card "as Widget/ProFile"
3 - find a Parallel-Interface Card and a working ProFile Drive (5MBs are quite common and easier to find or a 10MB - nearly impossible like an working Widget)
Anyway - try booting it up with floppy in first place - you could try MacWorks/Macintosh Emulation
That is, what I did the first years until I got my first working ProFile Drive you can check out my Videos about the LISA 2 on my Channel on YT: look for Apple Lisa 2 MarNoWeb or similar xD
For god's sake my keyboard works like a charm - I think it was restored not that long ago? It will be quite a lot of fun from what I read in the threads
Hmm I don't know such program...would be an interesting thing to see every step from hex to code/assembler/realtime
I should backup my ROMs - good idea - first ToDo after I'm back from holidays
