So I got an original M5120 Macintosh Portable a few months ago. It was listed as non working, but after a recap it would turn on again fine. The real issue was the hard drive. It was impossible to make it work. It would keep the Macintosh on a permanent rebooting loop. After doing a couple tests (that actually made it worse) I finally gave up and went for a SCSI2SD with an adapter. As a keep-it-original hooligan, the main drawback here was not only that the lack of noise from the hard drive felt strange, unexpectedly quiet, but that it made you feel other noises that normally would
Being that it is very rare to find hardware upgrades for a mac plus, is there any programs/extensions that anyone can recommend to improve the speed or memory of a 68000 mac or am I just dreaming? I have heard of things like RamDoubler but do these programs actually work? I am trying to get the best performance out of my mac plus that I can. I already have 4 MB of RAM and am booting off of a SCSI2SD. Thanks!
I’m looking for a copy of AOL 2.6 so I can test out the dated web browser with my proxy server. But I can’t find it in a form that StuffIt 4 will expand. All copies that MR has don’t work. It would be nice to be able to download the disk image but Ik that’s asking a lot. Thanks!
Hello fellow 68k enthusiasts, I'd like to share a Mac project I've been working on for a bit now. I've been exploring "bare-metal" programming on the original Macs (128k/512k/Plus) and just got around to writing up my initial efforts here: http://jonsharp.net/retrocomputing/bare-metal-macintosh-programming-part-1/ But perhaps more importantly, I'd like to solicit some help in the next stages of my efforts to produce something modestly useful/interesting on the Mac hardware, without any real help from the ROM/System. I've got an 'experimental' branch in my 'HappyJon' repo that
