  1. Just another confirmation for no need for a pram battery on the 2400 - I have been running fine without for a couple years now.
  2. I had an Apple Extended Keyboard II hooked up to my Color Classic, but that giant keyboard just takes up too much desk space. I replaced it with the handsome Apple Keyboard II (more Color Classic appropriate, I suppose), and it's fine, but I don't really like the mushy-ness of the keys. I'm considering a IIgs keyboard, but they fetch a pretty penny right now...can anyone who has used both speak to the 'feel' of the IIgs keyboard compared to the Apple Keyboard II?
  3. I'm commenting here because i too would like some that fit. My 2400's original ones are still there but quite gummy
  4. Good call. It would also be handy to have micro sd to micro sd, so I'll order that one and cross my fingers.
  5. Just bumping this, has anyone else had success w/ a vintage mac, SCSI2SD, and an extension cable? I have the one Crutch mentioned, and it works fine with modern hardware, but when using it with my SCSI2SD the LED on the scsi2sd it doesn't mount. I thought maybe there was some additional power requirement when using the extension cable so I tried both molex power and USB but the same result.
  6. I figured out just what I needed, I found a program called ADFS (not to be confused w/ active directory single sign on ) that runs on System 7 and above and lets me load apple II disk images in the finder and copy the files straight to a prodos formatted 3.5" floppy. Now i realize that the few Apple II games I remember require a joystick ! http://www.lazilong.com/apple_II/adfs/downloads/
  7. I will check the prodos extension. Earlier tonight made some progress, I discovered the reason i couldn't format a Prodos floppy on the Color Classic was I didn't have the PC Exchange control panel enabled. Turning that on allowed me to format a ProDos disk
  8. Is there a way to format a 3.5" floppy as ProDOS on the mac itself? 'Erase disk' in the finder doesn't have a ProDos option. I'm realizing i have a sort of bootstrapping problem - i can't format a blank disk in the IIc+ without some Apple II software.
  9. I recently picked up a IIc+, and my Apple II skills are rusty. I had thought I could download some .dsk files from the internet, copy them to my Color Classic, and then use the CC and Disk Copy to put those disk images onto a 3.5" floppy for the IIc+. But disk copy in 8.1 doesn't recognize any of the .dsk or .do files I've downloaded. Is what I'm trying to do possible? Not sure I have the process right.
  10. Thanks for posting the 'before' pics. What a mess! Great job with a really unique bit of hardware
  11. This sounds crazy! I know the LC is small, but to consider any desktop 'luggable' is a stretch.
  12. Love the Newton stuff. If you're up for it, I'm sure the other Newton users on the newtontalk mailing list would love to hear more about OS 1.4!
  13. I refuse to apologize for being a trackball fan!
  14. A NeXT ADB keyboard is definitely easier to come by (at a reasonable price) than a MacTV one, which is why I got one. Trackball is a 'Costar Stingray' trackball. I've never seen one in this color before, but the beige ones are (relatively) common. (...though I checked ebay just now, and there's another stingray trackball in dark gray/black, so, so much for that!)
