  1. You might be able to utilize Baton Mail on the Mac Plus to add SMTP authentication: http://web.archive.org/web/20060615060729/http://www.mythtech.net/baton.html
  2. That's insanely incredible! You've really got something in the making here! I'll happily buy a copy when it's released! Do you have any plans on recording Programming sessions? (I love watching/learning the process of coding for these old machines.)
  3. dougg3 did some amazing work using a BeagleBone Black and his own custom cape that utilized a LPC11U68 microcontroller and the Zilog Z85C30 SCC: https://mac68k.info/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=275 Some new old stock of Z8030 DIP40 ICs have shown up on ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/3-pieces-Z8030-Z08030-SERIAL-COMMUNICAT-CONTRL-Z-BUS-SCC-8030-Z8030B1-NEW/281669897457 (Might be a good time for someone to start dabbling with a Raspberry Pi.)
  4. The GitHub mirror for The Unarchiver have some amazing, reverse-engineered, documentation on the Stuffit Formats: https://github.com/mietek/theunarchiver/wiki/StuffItFormat https://github.com/mietek/theunarchiver/wiki/StuffIt5Format
  5. I think adding more info on Classic Mac OS programming would be great for our existing Wiki. (wiki.68kmla.org) I think self-registration is disabled to prevent spammers, so you'll need to ask an admin to make a wiki account for you. While I haven't yet fully delved into programming with the Toolbox, I have found the Macintosh Programming Primer series to be a very nice introduction. (I own the Pascal version, here's the THINK C version: https://www.amazon.com/Macintosh-Programming-Primer-Inside-Toolbox/dp/0201608383) It just dives right into the Toolbox, no basic programming intros
  6. I didn't get to thank you before the topic got locked. Thanks for the Krita suggestion! I'll try that out!!!!

    1. PowerPup


      No problem! Yeah Photoshop is difficult to outright replace, but I'm always happy to help others find Open Source alternatives in case they find them useful!

  7. If you want to go hardcore and build some circuits, you can totally make a self-contained PBX system: http://wandel.ca/homepage/pbx.html http://www.instructables.com/id/Homemade-Intercom-PBX-With-GPIO/
  8. I didn't realize you got the stunnel email proxy added in that quickly. Nice work! This update will definitely be useful when I get around to networking my Classic II again. Thanks for all your effort in providing the community an out-of-box solution!
  9. You should be able to use stunnel for email clients that do not have SSL/TLS encryption. I had success testing several email clients with it: https://68kmla.org/forums/index.php?/topic/15763-stunnel-emailing-with-oe5-greenmail/ Maybe in a future release of macipgw it can be preinstalled and configured.
  10. To my recollection, the original Airport cards only support up to WPA encryption. You'll need an Airport Extreme card to support WPA2 (usually the default encryption method on today's routers.) You can always go into the router settings and downgrade the encryption method to WPA, at the risk of less security. More info: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/1353596?tstart=0 It also depends on what OS you're using on the iMac G3, if you're running Mac OS 9 or below, then you'll only get support for WEP encryption: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/695592?start=0&tstart=0 O
  11. Sounds like an awesome project! Please do keep us up to date on your progress. It would also be neat to see a repository of any code you make for the project, for preservation/collaboration/etc.
  12. Is this the video you were referring to? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6JPoB0M4zM In the video he's using a terminal emulator such as ZTerm to talk directly to the Arduino via the Mac's serial ports.
  13. The best resource for programming on the Macintosh would be the Inside Macintosh books from Apple. Inside Macintosh: Devices has a chapter on Serial Drivers/Communications (Ch 7) HTML Version of Chapter 7 PDF Version of Chapter 7
  14. You already have two previous topics (here, and here) to which you asked this question and people have already given several suggestions. The forum rules discourage creating multiple topics on basically the same subject. It would be better to continue the conversation/question in one of your existing topics so that the conversation is coherent, rather than creating another topic, further scattering the conversation and causing people to repeat their suggestions.
  15. Yes, the PowerMac 6100 won't boot up properly without a working PRAM battery. If you ever find yourself without a working PRAM battery, you can do the power toggle trick. Turn it on for a sec, then quickly turn it off and back on again. Should get the video working and booting up normally. Edit: Also, yes Arctic Silver 5 is (somewhat?) conductive. So one needs to make sure any mess is cleaned up before booting.
