    MacSD - new SCSI SD card emulation tool

    really? but also: Saying that someone is being toxic and societally corrosive for not having information that you didn't explicitly give them does not seem entirely fair. Noting bad behaviour and supporting people on the pointy end of it is important.

    It's not at all slander. Just uninformed.

    But, I mean, this is exactly what the word "indefinite" means. So you have literally just said exactly the same thing that the poster said and you're still acting like it's some kind of slander?

    SE FTP issues

    Hello I will list off random things you can try, none of these suggestions are in a particular order so I suggest you read them first and decide which is the least disruptive. So things like resetting PRAM or NVRAM are quick. Ping can be quick as well to check for time outs etc. *** Is the download speed drop isolated to the SE or do other computers downloading from FTP also suffer a similar fate? Since this began to occur have you changed any of the files or added any new extensions etc to the SE System Folder? Is the SE provided a static IP address on your router and the SE setup to use DHCP to obtain the said IP address? Can you ping from another computer to the SE? Can you try minimizing the extensions/control panels on the SE to just those that are needed to ensure there isn't a conflict? Not knowing anything precise about your FreeNAS, can you identify is an update to FreeNAS may correlates with the issue? Is the issue isolated to FTP? Can you visit sites like Macintosh Garden (I think the site will reduce itself down enough to support old browsers)? The point here is to understand if the SE can establish any other connection, FTP, HTTP or otherwise and keep a sustained download rate. So for now I have no way of knowing if the Farallon Card is at fault, I suspect it is a network issue of some sort. You could also try resetting PRAM or NVRAM (whichever term applies to this model of Mac) and potentially moving any related preferences files to a folder on the desktop, restart and this will compel applications to recreate those preferences files that are backed up on the desktop. If things work with new preferences files in place you will know it was one of those preferences files that could have gotten corrupted. Have you changed the network topology or configuration and perhaps these changes are the cause of the speed dropping? Are you running the latest software for the Farallon card that is compatible with System 7.1? You could also try to run Disk Doctor as it can fix things. Let us know what you tried and what might have worked. I will keep my eyes on your call for help. I would be inclined to believe it is a software issue rather than a hardware one.

    MacSD - new SCSI SD card emulation tool

    It was listed as backordered on our web shop for the entire period of ~2.5-3 weeks,. I guess that wasn't good enough, so we will try to do better next time. When we don't know exactly when we'll have the next batch, we have a policy of not over-promising and under-delivering. 2020 has been a very painful year for anyone dealing with supply chains and lead times.

    It is not your customers' responsibility to ask probing questions about your stock control. If you do not communicate explicitly and openly when things are available, people will not care to know. By your own statement, the poster's statement was completely accurate; it was out of stock and they had no idea when they would be back in stock again. Saying that they had a responsibility to chase you up because you're unable to put the information they needed on your website doesn't seem entirely fair. These posts show you and Inertial in neither an amiable nor an edifying light, and I think you need to walk away from the computer and de-stress.

    Enough, the correction has been made. Let's move on.

    All he would have had to do to get an answer on when we'd be back in stock is ask. It doesn't seem that ever happened, which is unfortunate. Choosing to spread inaccurate information online as a result of a conclusion reached in a vacuum is a problem that extends well beyond 68kMLA, and it's societally corrosive.

    Be my guest. Their assembly quality has declined as of late, so buyer beware.

    Sure thing. I'll just make sure you blacklist you, and get the SCSI2SD from ITEAD instead. Thanks for making that decision for me!

    Sorry, but incorrect information shared on forums is more toxic to our business than someone being _potentially_ butthurt that we've called them out on spreading misinformation.

    Using SCSI2SD v5.5 in a Powerbook

    Apologies, It's been a long month for us, with fallout from local wildfire, and an overall lack of time to do anything but fulfill orders. New employee starts Monday, which will shed an immense burden. We're have developed a SCSI2SD V5.5-based/derived solution, to replace the legacy V5.0 Powerbook Edition. Stay tuned.
  15. Isn’t the analog board for a Classic II identical to the one in a Classic ?

    Indeed. Very glad to have the outage period defined and that the situation has normalized. Indefinitely does not mean permanently and does not imply any length of time. One sentence would have sufficed for error correction.

    Sorry, but this isn't a good look for your store. Correcting someone is fine, but this aggressive style does not win you customers.

    Apple custom ASIC dissection, imaging and analysis

    Is there a reverse equivalent of a code disassembler to reassemble silicon masks into schematic form? Don't recall the name of the non-destructive process or where I mentioned it, but it's new, out there and has to be a lot more efficient than de-capping. As Cory said in the other thread, if anything like that still exists, it's boxed up in storage at the Stanford(?). Someone contacted the curator to find out the stored away bit, but mention (likely unnecessarily) needs be made that any magnetic storage media in those boxes needs to be backed up pronto. My guess is that what you're looking for is on tape.

    I'd love to know where the masks/layouts/schematics for them are - or if they're just lost to time... I know the WIM chip is basically a consolidation of an Apple Disk II card, and the SWIM is a minor improvement over that...we need more schematics for things - there has to be a way...i wonder, would apple not provide such things for vintage machines like they used to, to dealers?

    New 3D-printed parts (ktkm)

    I'd suggest neither. A new thread can be built with an OP having links to every part discussion covered so far in both threads. That way new project discussions can be added and earlier discussions in the first thread can be reopened for further development with a link to the original discussion keeping context intact? Advancing printer tech and bed sizes are making larger parts possible. With falling "desktop" 3D milling machine prices, a sister thread comes to mind. Combining the two technologies seems to be the next step to me. 3D printing is like casting Ford's V8 block with subtractive milling processes resulting in a precision part. Milling aluminum reinforcement or connective sections to be inserted at a specific point during printing might make assemblages of much larger or more robust parts practical? Has anyone here experimented with dovetails, mortise and tenon or other classic wood working jointery technique that lends itself to chemically welding printed sub-assemblies into larger parts? I'd think that's been going on somewhere out there for quite some time?

    Err, no? I'm not sure where you sourced this erroneous information from, but you're completely wrong. We (Inertial Computing, who is the OEM that manufactures them) ran out of stock, due to a surge in demand, for about three weeks. Respectfully, please don't spread FUD. SCSI2SD V5.1's are now generally available again, and we will continue to make them as long as the parts can be sourced in volume, and the demand doesn't abate, which it's far from doing. We also have plenty of V5.5's available, and have just ordered another thousand.
  23. Hi all, quick question. I have a B&W G3 with the entry level 300mhz chip in it, and a parts donor with 400mhz chip with twice the L2 cache. Do I just need to switch the CPU card and the jumpers over to upgrade it or are the logic boards different and would require the whole board to be switched over? Cheers!

    New 3D-printed parts (ktkm)

    Are we making this the de facto 3d printed parts thread, or still continuing the old one? Just curious so I don't hijack this one unnecessarily

    Apple custom ASIC dissection, imaging and analysis

    I doubt there are nearly that many. They started out with single function ASICSs and consolidated processes within multi-function ASICS thereafter. I've always wondered what a timeline of Macs by family charted against the development tree of the ASICs on board would look like? I'm all but sure the masks within the consolidated ASICs look different for each baseline function block and some functions become more powerful as you move along the consolidation/complexity tree, but concentrating on the basic building blocks ought to lead to a growing understanding of the logical functions in later, consolidated silicon?

    New 3D-printed parts (ktkm)

    Played around with Tinkercad and designed a port cover for it. It could be resized to cover other slots as well. Like Apple's port covers, it comes in to parts, the actual plug and the plate that holds it in place. Comm Slot Plate.stl Comm Slot Plug.stl

    Commodore didn't even consistently make the SID sound the same. Witness the 8580.
