  1. It's my understanding that the IIgs natively supports LocalTalk, and there was an addon card for the IIe (the Workstation Card, I think?) that added some sort of AppleTalk support. I don't believe there was ever a LocalTalk solution for the IIc, though.
  2. I actually went the opposite, slower route. Created the hard drive images in the RaSCSI web interface (as an Apple Genuine drive, as I recall), partitioned and initialized it on the Amiga, copied the file to my Linux desktop, and pointed FS-UAE at the .hda file as a hard drive image. Copied files to the image inside the emulator, copied the image back to the Pi, and the files were present when the Amiga had mounted the image again.
  3. It's not Mac-related, but I've been using landoGriffin's RaSCSI board for a couple days with an Amiga 2000, and it's been working wonderfully. Also turns out that the hard drive images it creates work perfectly in an Amiga emulator on my PC, so it's a good way to shuffle files back and forth. Thanks again, bud, great hardware.
  4. This use of Zip disks as an example has filled a void in my knowledge that has bothered me for years. I'd hypothesized that this was the answer, but it's nice to have it confirmed so eloquently. Thank you!
  5. Hey, me too! I run brass in a couple of DMG Mori lathes most nights at work.
  6. Oh you're wonderful. My QS02 only had its middle, single caddy installed when I acquired. Not sure if I have the screws for the other two caddies, but I know the trays themselves are missing. That was a rude thing to discover, haha. Let me look into it and I'll get back to you.
  7. Hardcore same, friend; working my third mandatory weekend of overtime in a row. Don't rush perfection.
  8. Well that's gorgeous. Wonder if maceffects could make it and sell us some, haha
  9. Hey all, got my QS 2002 out for the weekend. Decided to put a SATA card and extra hard drive in it for more storage, when I discovered that it only had one hard drive tray installed, which was already occupied. Bummer. Does anyone have a diagram or parts list with part numbers for all the various internal fitments the system could ship with? Would be useful to figure out if I'm missing anything else and order what I need.
  10. Wonderful! Can you point to the right driver package for the Mac?
  11. Looking pretty good! Let us know how the keyboard ages. Also, ooooh a Takky. Did you do the harness wiring and everything yourself, or buy it from someone? I have a Mystic and a 5500 that I'd like to one day put together, but it's a daunting task.
  12. I would also be interested in a PCB and socket or whatever! Those eBay FPU cards are nice, but not $100 nice; I only paid $50 for the Classic II I have, haha.
  13. As far as emulating spin up and seek sounds goes: it would be pretty low fidelity, but a small piezo buzzer would probably fit in there. Looks like there's plenty of info on how to wire one up to a spare GPIO pin and drive it from a Python script.
  14. The idea of using a Pi 4 as a low power file server on a small PhoneNet network is very appealing to me, haha.
  15. I would love to see this developed further. Is there any advantage to using the BBB platform in particular over a Pi, or is that just what was on your desk when you built it? I seem to remember that a Pi can run a UART over its GPIO pins, but I don't know much about it.
  16. Received my board this week, and put it through its paces hooked up between a Pi 4 and my SE. Once I reminded myself how SCSI worked (higher IDs take boot priority, not lower, duh) I was off to the races! Used the images from the Garden to bootstrap myself up to a 600MB image with 6.0.8 installed that I'll spend some time personalizing this weekend. You all have done great work and I'm already pushing the project on other people. Excited for the Daynalink branch to land in master, too! Maybe I'll set that up this weekend. What are the good telnet/IRC/FTP clients for Sys
  17. Brilliant, cheesestraws. That will perfectly accomplish what I'm after, assuming we can get the correct version of netatalk installed on the Pi. I'm out of my depth here, but maybe it's time we come up with some sort of broader software distribution for the Pi, either a flashable SD image or an install script, that would include the RaSCSI software and web interface, netatalk, and some prebuilt hard drive images with the ethernet drivers installed, all ready to go. Just throwing ideas out there, haha
  18. Hmmmm. Now I wish there was some way to attach a Pi to a LocalTalk network. I suppose also, since the RaSCSI software runs on Raspbian and not bare metal, that I could also use a USB to serial connector to get connected through ZTerm or MacPPP, just for giggles.
  19. Another question: is it possible to share a directory on the Pi as a sort of virtual hard drive? I'm thinking something like the drive sharing that Basilisk II features, but I don't imagine sharing the entire file hierarchy of the Pi would be useful. I imagine this would make it easier to get downloaded files over to the Mac environment. Extra points for supporting resource forks with AppleDouble or something similar, but that wouldn't be necessary for stuffit and other archive files.
  20. Oh, is SCSI to Ethernet already working? I'd wondered that; great news! I'm flipflopping now between my SE and my Mystic, but I guess I can just set up disk images for both, haha. How exciting!
  21. I ordered one of these from the Tindie page this weekend and am quite excited! Trying to decide which of my too many systems I'll use it on first, but I think it's going to be my SE.
  22. It was in the system when I purchased it this summer, but I couldn't test it until recently as I had no CD caddy until the last few weeks. I assume it's the original, since it's an Apple drive and it matches the case. It's attached to the middle connector on the SCSI cable, which looks just fine; the hard drive (a 9GB I added) is connected to the end of the SCSI cable and works, so I assume the cable is okay. The hard drive is jumpers to ID 0. The CD drive is pictured below. I'm not great at SCSI voodoo, any suggestions here?
  23. I guess this should be here instead of Peripherals? I have a 650 here with its original caddy loader that seems to be dead. Will take the caddy in and immediately spit it back out again, and the OS won't see it on the SCSI chain. I assume that sounds like a recap is in order? Does anyone have a list of caps I need to order? Also, I haven't opened the drive up, but does anyone know if the caps are through hole or surface mount?
  24. We got it here in central Illinois too. Where are you located?
  25. Are you planning to make a revision of the board with the through-hole header? I'm not very experienced with surface-mount soldering, and while I think a small IC is probably within my abilities, I'm far less confident soldering up a 50pin SMD header, haha. I am probably interested in taking part in a group-buy regardless.
