  1. Yeah I did manage to make a polyurethane panel in the shape of the classic CRT. I learned a lot and would love to have another go at it when time permits. Next time round I would include mounting tabs so that the panel could easily be screwed onto the case.
  2. Well done! It looks great and thank you for the detailed steps. Maybe you should try out the MacPlayer Spotify client? (https://github.com/antscode/MacPlayer) You're probably the only other person in the world apart for me who's got the MacWifi extension working with OpenWRT You just need to follow the additional steps to install stunnel on the OpenWRT router...
  3. Hey @stormy sorry for the delay, unfortunately life has gotten in the way of all my hobbies! It's great to hear you got the wifi menu working with OpenWRT, please post a screenshot! I don't think the DNS issues will be too sinister, I'll fire up my Mac today and check my settings. But can you at least hit websites by IP address? e.g. (apple.com - but you'll just get an error page)
  4. @10001001sos can you remind me of your OS version and how much RAM you have? I'll then try testing from my end.
  5. I use Windows 10. Getting Networking alive in Basilisk II on Windows is a piece of cake. Unfortunately I know next to nothing about Linux sorry.
  6. I have a Colour Classic so yeah it would be possible for me to make a cast of the CRT. But I'm curious why you'd want to replace the Trinitron screen with a TFT? It will undoubtedly not look as good. The LCD I sourced for my SE/30 project was pretty good, but still nowhere near as good as the output on my Colour Classic CRT. Hypothetically if an OLED panel could be sourced, then that would be a worthwhile upgrade, but I don't think anything like that exists.
  7. Sure - PM me and we can sort something out.
  8. Hi all, thanks for your ongoing interest - however, I've decided not to continue with this project. As cool as it was to see a colour screen in an SE/30 - for me personally I feel the original B&W CRT is a big part of what makes these old machines so special. Staring at an LCD in a SE/30 just felt wrong, which is why I haven't been motivated to keep going with it. I also own a Mac Colour Classic - it's Trinitron CRT is wonderful and this machine was always made for colour.
  9. Thanks @Crutch and great work on releasing your screensaver. I'm using Retro68 which is a gcc cross compiler on my Windows 10 laptop. It's using C++ 11, which I believe the full library is over 10mb - so I think it's already only including the bits it needs. It just shows how software gets more bloated as the years go by! I've got some ideas on how to reduce the file size, but failing that I'll definitely look into Codewarrior.
  10. The simplest thing would be to rewrite it in C - that'd probably get it down to about 200k...
  11. That's the problem. The extension itself is over 2mb in size, and it's memory requirement is set to 4mb. On a SE/30 with 128mb of RAM that's of course not an issue, but I didn't realise the SE's maximum memory was so low! The reason the extension is so big is due to a combination of factors: It's written in C++. The C++ library is almost 1mb in size. I could rewrite it in C, but that's a big job and I'm not much of a C programmer. The extension relies on a number of other libraries. The biggest on is iconv at almost 1mb which is used to convert UTF-8 text to MacRoman -
  12. How much RAM is in your SE?
  13. @Michael_b Attached is a version of the extension with some logging added. Before installing, please rename your primary disk to "Mac HD (68K)" (without the quotes). Solely because I was too lazy to write the code to find the primary drive... Then after rebooting, wait a few minutes and you should see wifi.txt in the root of Mac HD (68K). Please post the contents of this file. If there's no file we're really in trouble! MacWifi.APPL.sit
  14. eBay. This is the exact one I bought, but there might be cheaper sellers around: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/GL-AR300M16-Ext-mini-router-300Mbps-WiFi-OpenWrt-Repeater-OpenVPN/223044703527
