  1. wow, sorry, I meant WOW!! Well done, that is an awesome achievement. I havent been around here for a while so have only just learnt of your awesomeness today. I was truly blown away. I'm pretty sure that in past discussion about being able to do something like this on a 128k Mac using Mac OS, the idea was dumped in the "impossible" basket. Excellent work. I look forward to taking some time to read through your blog (not that I'll be able to understand all the technical bits!). Cheers,
  2. Could be possible to play modem dialup over the internet, but would need some additional (moderish) equipment. Hardware solutions along the lines of the Lantronix or MOXA ethernet modems (basically hayes modem emulator, serial to ethernet converter) could be used, but I suppose both parties would need the same brand converter to make it all work. Alternatively, perhaps TCPSER has this functionality, then just a reasonably common old windows box could be used as the go between on both ends.
  3. Cheers, would appreciate it. Ahh yes, you are right, well done for spoting my deliberate mistake
  4. Were there any MSBASIC commands to access a Localtalk network on a classic 68k Mac? I'm thinking 64k ROM machines like the 128/512k Mac. If so, anyone got any examples? Cheers,
  5. Hi all, I've done a quick google but not come up with much, so I thought I'd be lazy and post here to see if anyone knew the answer. I've got a couple of Lisa 2 PSU's (both the low and high power varities) and was wondering if anyone knew of a reference that described the capacitors, their values and ratings, for the purposes of replacement. Both my PSU's went bang with lots and lots of smoke (very impressive) so I'm assuming I wont be able to read the values off the exisitng components. Also, a repair guide would be nice Cheers,
  6. Hi all, I have a "Macintosh Color Monitor" (its a 14" or so by the look) from around 1993 that I need to take apart - does anyone know where I can find a disassembly guide for such a beast? A quick google didnt do me much good so I thought I'd try a more targetted approach by posting here Cheers,
  7. Thanks to the good people at RetroNET, I now have somewhere to host some web pages. So, I have moved this bloggy type post over to there, and have even included two new amazing pictures of my LCe and Serial cable - wow. What are you waiting for?!? Heres the link - http://retro-net.org:808/~gavo/
  8. Seems like endurance might be the in thing this time round. Must be something in the water because I was thinking that I might try to do all of my recreational computing (media centre PC doesnt count right) on my old 128k Mac, connected to the interweb via my PC and Retro-net.org for the challenge. Should bring back some (painful) memories
  9. Hmm, interesting. Is it playable(ish) like that? Anyway, thanks for trying it out and posting - wish I still had my Apple III Cheers,
  10. There seems to be a disk image of it located at: http://adtpro.sourceforge.net/archive/WAP/html/a3games.html Cheers,
  11. Hi, I used to love Captain Magneto on my 128k Mac and recently discovered that there seems to have been a port of it to the Apple III - unfortuantely I dont have an Apple III or a Mac (on which I can run SARA the Apple III emulator) to check out the Apple III version - I'm really interested to see what the graphics were like on this platform. Did anyone here ever play it on the III? What was it like - was the game play similar to the Mac version? Anyone got any screen shots (or better yet youtube video)? Wishful thinking perhaps. Cheers,
  12. Well, the RetroBaud has now officially been retired. I had a lot of fun (after the frustration) getting it going - but even more fun BBS'ing once it was up. I also enjoyed getting me Apple IIe card going in my LC475 despite not being able to get the BBS running on it. I was a bit MIA for the last week of the RC, I had hoped to write a high scores module for the door games on the RetroBaud, but just wasnt able to do it. I have to say that I'd highly recommend the RC to anyone. Its a laugh and by entering myself, I found that I felt a little more connected to the other contestants and t
  13. Well, heres a quite bit I wrote up on my final solution - feel free to ask any questions. Whilst I would have preferred to have my Warp6 BBS running on my LC 475’s //e card, I was forced to run it on my XP workstation under the KEGS emulator due to Warp6’s incompatibility with the //e card. Essentially this is the brief run down of how I did it. Software Used in the End: KEGS 0.91 (http://kegs.sourceforge.net/) - //gs emulator TCPSER (http://www.jbrain.com/pub/linux/serial/) - Hayes compatible modem emulator for getting your old serial comms app onto the internet. Note I’m not
