    System 7 & Philips Hue Lightbulbs

    Ok so I sat down and eventually managed to get python (1.5.2) running on my SE/30. At this point I had to make it work! So I did. Python version this old do have their own quirks, however.... IMG_0601.MOV

    I still love the flying toasters (especially with the song!)

    System 7 & Philips Hue Lightbulbs

    Well here are the tools one would need for the module... http://jamessignorile.com/program.html Writing some code to poke the Philips hue bridge wouldn’t be all that hard, it’s just a REST API, which could even be implemented in raw TCP if actual HTTP is difficult. I might look into this since I’ve got a lot of modern programming experience, but back when I was using Mac OS 8/9 I was using REALBasic, which wasn’t really proper Mac programming, then or now (although I’ve not used XoJo so maybe I’m being a little unfair there!)

So ages ago I looked into this and couldn't make it work: Recently I saw something on Hackaday which made me think: https://hackaday.com/2019/07/03/amiga-in-the-mist-gets-online-with-an-esp8266/ So I got a copy of the project: https://github.com/martin-ger/esp_slip_router (Had a bit of confusion with ifconfig and slattach on linux to get the port speed configured) Hooked my 540c up to it (Which already had InterSLIP installed from the last try) and it works! Yes it's unbelievably slow (although not compared to the 36.6k modem I used to use), but if I get around to making a working battery for it (which I have done in the past) then this would be truly wireless with WPA2 support and I don't have to spend £300 on an impossible to find card cage.

    If you've still not had contact with someone to take a look at this, send me a PM. I'm based near London/Cambridge and would be happy to look at it more closely, but It's not looking good from the pictures.
