So, eventually, I could that Call A.P.P.L.E has an old software list that contains a disk image of the "Basic Connectivity Set." Which contains a bunch of System 7 tools and a single System 6 INIT.

But, ClarisWorks still says the toolbox isn't installed, even with that INIT.

Then. I found out that Zterm doesn't rely on it.

So, that gets me where I was going.

Where do you get Communications Toolbox for System 6?

Replaced spinning rust platters with @BlueSCSI.

And now I can get to important work.

(This is not the Macintosh with the bombed logic board.)

I wish 2FA Authenticator apps supported QR-Codes when logging into a site. Why do I have to search for the site/service every time?

@48kRAM Caught your NABU Unboxing VOD just now. Thanks for doing it. This is the first one I saw.

Those surface mount ceramics were probably an early monolithic design. So same cap as a disc, just rectangular. Also, we take standardized case sizes for granted today. I have an app note from the early 1980s that uses some snark about this surface mount fad.

Not what I expected to see when I opened up an Apple IIgs with a note saying: "Failed CPU test."

Is this what you take when you get a headache while debugging an issue with an oscilloscope?

My first attempt at building a right-angle Banana-to-USB adapter. Also, first time I've tried to solder two PCBs together. (That I designed.)

Needs some tweaks though.

Check out lcamtuf's latest 8-bit handheld game: Sir Box-a-lot.

It's Sokoban running on an AVR128DA with an RGB OLED screen.

He's also done some other "handheld" games in the past.

Incredible work.

Sometimes your code gets kinda hangy... this is going to be my new while(1);

From the Apple IIc firmware listing:

Friday 2/24 Stream: More work on the Apple IIc Schematic in KiCad! Now on Twitch and YouTube (again).

you know how the rev A 6502 from 1975 had a bug in ROR? turns out not to be true.

I get to hang out with amazing makers Becky Stern and Allie Weber on a livestream to celebrate Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day. DigiKey is sponsoring and we'll be building a cool project (with LEDs!)

This is a amazing!!! There is in fact a a fixed-width version of comic sans.


Now... how to embed it in stackexchange???
