  1. The SIMMCHECK products tend to have special power supply requirements. They need lower voltage at specific current draw otherwise they can overheat. When using the 40-bit port, the SIMMCHECK power must be disconnected and only the 40-bit port power used, which is a different power spec than the main unit. Not sure of the power requirements for that configuration, because my unit is the SIMMCHECK II PLUS with built-in 30-pin, 72-pin, and 168-pin testers.
  2. I suspect it's just more a situation of what machines Kai had. And that he had a FDHD/SuperDrive, not an original SE. Those Vartas on the original SE just don't explode. (At least not yet.)
  3. Nice contribution, @superjer2000! People can use Nuvolink where it works, Daynaport where it doesn't. In time, hopefully the issues with the Nuvolink version can be figured out.
  4. The dd command does not do anything with "drive" images or "partition" images. It just moves bytes around. Which bytes, and what you use them for, is entirely up to you.
  5. Oh, yeah. One thing to keep in mind is that not all MicroSD cards support SPI.
  6. I think the stream started an hour before you posted? This forum isn't very clear about timestamps...
  7. Blue pills usually come programmed with a "blinky" app that does nothing more than blink the LED. So I wonder if this board has not been programmed with BlueSCSI firmware. A USB serial adapter only costs $10 and is a useful thing to have around.
  8. From a customer service perspective it seems a lot more sensible for the device to be configurable than to require every customer using it in a Plus to perform a component level modification to their machine. Especially considering that accommodating the Plus in the BlueSCSI design is basically free.
  9. (Even though it was working before the battery bomb doesn't mean that the PSU hasn't crapped out in the intervening time.)
  10. I'd like to re-emphasize testing the power supply voltages before you go replacing everything in sight on the logic board. An out of spec power supply will mean you'll never get troubleshooting feedback and you'll spend endless days tweaking the logic board to no effect.
  11. I agree that the toolbox is cumbersome. I don't think bypassing it is the answer. Personally, I would not be interested in using a UI library that didn't create native widgets. I wouldn't even be interested in using software written with such a library. (Maybe with the exception of games which sometimes make sense to do something completely different.) I just don't see any point to making software that ignores the platform UI on a platform that is defined by its UX. But you do whatever you like to do.
  12. Not sure if this is useful to you as I don't know off the top of my head for CUDA, but on the SE and other machines of that era, ADB is polled approximately every 11 ms. So not quite your 100 Hz. If it didn't change for CUDA then that could explain it.
  13. Here's a nickel, kid. Get yourself a better computer. =P https://dilbert.com/strip/1995-06-24
  14. And you're done! What's the best way to make a code block on this forum? ...
  15. It's a plain text file. The easiest possible thing to do. LOL
