Apple II GS/OS *WITHOUT* a Hard Drive! RAMDISK!

Support us by using this link to buy IIgs stuff on Ebay: IIGS items on Ebay

Or 'Buy Me Some Coffee' on the right side of this page with the PayPal Link.

I downloaded and made the 6.0.4 floppies, and then used Flashboot to install it to the RAMDISK. I have a 4MB Applied Engineering RAMDISK and even with a few add-ins over the basics, I have about 800K left.

Instructions can be clicked. They work. Some differences in verbiage vs. what the screen says, but pretty obvious. Comment if you have questions.

Acer G73jh Windows 10 Notes

I sold this laptop but this post still might help. Turns out the motherboard supposedly had a hairline crack in it.

http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/Apps_for_Win10/ATKPackage/ATKPackage_Win10_64_VER100039.zip

Windows 10 ATK Version.

Then do the regedit:

Notes:

turn turbo off in bios

throttlestop 8.7 settings



Acer Nitro 5 BSOD Notes.

Sloppy notes:

515-42 model, RX 560X and Ryzen 5.

Following instructions here. https://community.amd.com/docs/DOC-1641

I noted that Visual C++ had installed a 2015 and 2017 version on my laptop but the MS download page says 2015-2019 share the same distributable so I wonder if that was the issue.

After uninstalling and reinstalling those I ended up with 2005 version 4, 2012 x64/x86 and the 2017 x64/x86.

Links for 2005 and 2012 IIRC I had to google for.

Latest attempt: GPU scaling on.

It black screen flashes (Windows driver restart due to non responsiveness) too.

Furmark, Memtest, etc. have revealed no artifacts/memory issues yet. What's weird is it doesn't do it in games at higher temps so I'm hoping it's a windows GUI issue which is where it happens...usually just while using chrome...

BSOD changed from

Video TDR Failure (atikmpag.sys)

(IIRC) to a different issue after the instructions at https://community.amd.com/docs/DOC-1641 and since then I turned on GPU scaling...

Screen Sharing Between Classic Mac and OS X

This is a work in progress, but I've found what I *THINK* is going to be about the best method:

Setup Sheepshaver on OS X, and install Timbuktu Pro on that virtual machine, and also on your real PowerMac hardware or what have you.

I was lucky to get a CD of Timbuktu and Manual on Ebay for $9!

Please don't pirate if you can avoid it, although in this case, actual copies can be expensive and the company doesn't sell it any more so it's tricky. :)

One thing that threw me for a second: I had 7.5.5 installed on Sheepshaver and the Timbuktu installer complained that I needed 7.5...just tell it the correct drive that 7.5.5 is on in the dropdown. :)

Please use this link to search for Timbuktu Pro on Ebay, we get a little commission, which is why I write these articles and it helps me pay for the stuff I write about:

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_trksid%3Dp2380057.m570.l1313.TR1.TRC0.A0.H0.Xtimbuktu%2Bpro.TRS0%26_nkw%3Dtimbuktu%2Bpro%26_sacat%3D0&campid=5337534429&toolid=20008

Here's an Amazon search link:

https://amzn.to/2FKvvdV

And if you're really nice, book mark this page: AmAmZin.com that has an Amazon Search box. If you start your shopping trips there, I get a little check from whatever you buy.

Misc Notes:

VNC Server on Mac OS 9 doesn't work very well. Kinda gave up.
Netpresenz for FTPingon Mac OS 9 works ok but for some reason doesn't like .sea.bin files, I think it's trying to extract on the MAc for some reason but fails processing the .sea part. .smi.bin and other files work fine.
...so these reasons are why I'm trying Timbuktu Pro.

More to come on this subject! Will update as it progresses.

Apple Mail Version 11.5 (3445.9.1) and kmttg / Java Interfere with setting up account?

Weird one.

I think kmttg did not fully open it's window at launch.

When I hovered my mouse over the pane on 'Internet Accounts' in "System Preferences" that asks you if you use Mail / Contacts / Calendars / Notes, I got the popup tooltips for kmttg!

Can't replicate this as I got all my accounts set up by killing that task and now Apple Mail works again.

Weird...as...crap.

And how my brain figures this stuff out, I don't know.

But I can say that killing the kmttg taks terminal window let me complete account setup.

Before, it would just hang with the grey gear looking spinner after selecting what items you use on that account and all you could do was hit the 'Cancel' button.

Versions:
OS X 10.13
Java Version 8 Update 191 (build 1.8.0_191-b12)
kmttg 1.1p

Getting a 'Restored' Powermac 6100 up and connected.

SCSI2SD / PowerMac 6100 / 68k Mac Notes (This one's gonna be a long and winding one.)

Got a 0000000R 00000069 sad mac on booting OS 9.1 install CD on your Powermac 6100? Starting from CD gave this error message on mine.

It's a 'Not for Resale' copy but I think it's the same as retail. I think this is because OS 9 requires 32MB memory and I only had 10MB. After I upgraded with 2x64MB sticks, for a total of 136MB RAM, it would then boot from CD.

It's silly but you can't run the installer from within anything less than OS 8 I believe, so you must boot from the CD THEN run the installer.

It's still a slow machine on 7.5.5...but it's 24 years old which is like a few hundred in computer years.

Misc notes:
Don't be a numbskull and use System Picker to choose 6.0.8 and then try to boot a Powermac 6100. Too old. It requires at least system 7, like 7.0.2 but you can Google the minimum. :)

If you make a second SCSI drive on the SCSI2SD over 1GB IIRC, it won't be seen by 68K macs that I've got, up to the Classic. Powermac 6100 sees it fine.

No video on Powermac 6100: no PRAM battery or battery dead. Power it on, off, then on quickly.
Get a new battery on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2SCxDaN This SHOULD be it. I ordered, waiting on it.

Disk Copy won't use an external USB to make copies. It has to sense the inject of the floppy it's writing. Beige G3, Mac OS 9.2.2. Or at least, it didn't work with mine. Interesting note: writing a floppy successfully then reading it back in produces a different checksum than the original image. Observed 3 times in a row on different floppies. Interesting philosophy.

Netpresenz Notes (NP for short):
I downloaded Netpresenz which runs on Mac OS 7/8/9. "NetPresenz is a Classic Macintosh implementation of the WWW, Gopher and FTP server protocols. It is compatible with most web browsers and FTP clients. It allows your Mac to act as an FTP server so you (and others) can access your files from anywhere around the world. You can also host a web site directly from your computer."

I got it working with Cyberduck so I can just drop files to the 6100...some transfers fail but beats floppies and CDs...

If you get a -3205 Error on Netpresenz "Failed to Startup" it's because you don't have a network connection. I got it when my network switch freaked out and lit up all the ports. Power cycling fixed it but I chased this one a long time before I noticed all the lights were lit on the switch.

I had an OS 8.6 install from a G3 on Ebay that didn't work well with NP. 9.1 fresh and 9.2.2 fresh installs on 6100 and G3 worked pretty well.

Need a SCSI2SD? I got the 5.1 which works pretty well and it's a good bit faster than a hard drive.

Yeah, they're long links but we get a referral commission so please use them so I can keep blogging about the toys I buy.

Click here to search ebay for SCSI2SD:
 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_trksid%3Dp2334524.m570.l1313.TR12.TRC2.A0.H0.Xscsi2sd.TRS0%26_nkw%3Dscsi2sd%26_sacat%3D0%26LH_TitleDesc%3D0%26_osacat%3D0%26_odkw%3Dscsu2SD&campid=5337534429&toolid=20008

You'll want more RAM for your 6100 so Ebay time:
https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_trksid%3Dm570.l1313%26_nkw%3D64%2B72pin%2Bsimm%26_sacat%3D0&campid=5337534429&toolid=20008

Get 2 sticks of 64MB RAM. I got a set for $14 shipped. Might as well max it out. This will give you 136MB total. Note: nothing I've seen says 128mb SIMMs will work. Two reputable places (one selling them) say it won't so don't get overambitious.

Why am I messing with a 6100? It has Localtalk and AAUI so it can have Ethernet as well. So it can bridge my Mac Pro and Classic Macs. Also it has the Superdrive floppy, so I can work with older floppies. It can run 7.5.5

So you'll need an AAUI Adapter to connect to Ethernet: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_trksid%3Dm570.l1313%26_nkw%3Daaui%2B10baseT%2Bapple%26_sacat%3D0%26LH_TitleDesc%3D0%26_sop%3D15%26_osacat%3D0%26_odkw%3Daaui%2Bethernet%2Bapple%26LH_TitleDesc%3D0&campid=5337534429&toolid=20008


Here's something that's handy: a USB floppy. It STILL WORKS on my Mac Pro running High Sierra, and the 6100 can format PS disks under 7.5.5

So hit Ebay for a VST one since they have cool 90's iMac colors: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_trksid%3Dp2334524.m570.l1313.TR11.TRC1.A0.H0.Xvst%2Bfloppy.TRS0%26_nkw%3Dvst%2Bfloppy%26_sacat%3D0%26LH_TitleDesc%3D0%26_osacat%3D0%26_odkw%3D128mb%2B72pin%2Bsimm%26LH_TitleDesc%3D0&campid=5337534429&toolid=20008

Note: Sometimes you have to unplug and replug it to get it to recognize a floppy (and you should still use the eject button on the Finder first) but it's still a handy piece of tech that overlaps 1994 and 2018.

I have the graphite one but if grape's your thing, do that.

Misc 6100 Issues:

HAHA! The second SIMM was ANOTHER ROM. It had TWO in it. Someone didn't know what they were doing! So instead of an L2 caches and a ROM it had two ROMs. Check that if your machine feels slow.

Easy Fix for Atari 7800 Buttons Not Working

Disclaimer: don't blame me if you break it.

You'll need a phillips screwdriver, rubbing alcohol (highest percentage you can find...preferably denatured), q-tips, and a can of compressed air.

First, you'll need to open your Atari 7800. There are 5 (IIRC) screws on the bottom. Once you remove them all, turn it topside up and lift off the top.

Inside you'll see some buttons like this:


All you have to do is dip the q tip in the rubbing alcohol and saturate the black center part. You'll see some liquid in the white part.

Click it a few dozen times to clean it out. Use the compressed air to gently blow out the liquid and let it dry.

Test it before you reassemble it.

This fixed mine.

Mac Audio Output Stops Working Sometimes

Update May 2019:  Happened again but this time I had to toggle it a few times. I.e. start dictation then click done. After that took a few seconds for audio to come back.

This was driving me nuts. Turns out I was triggering the voice dictation by accident.

I have mine set to a double tap on the Command key to turn it on. But every once in a while it would turn on and I would miss the 'doink' sound effect cluing me in.

Look for this icon on your screen:



Click 'Done' and you're done and back to listening to classic 80s hair metal.

Pick up some batteries for that onboard CMOS battery you never change while you're here.

Why does YouTube show my video in a lower resolution?

One answer is that when you first upload, it really is still processing. I recently uploaded this:



And it was at 360p. After a while, the 720p version was available. So just wait, and give it a bit of time.

Looking for better videos? Or audio for your podcasting?

Here's a couple of items I got.



We used this mic for the audio. I set it just behind the 7800 system.

For DSLR, light, check out the Manfrotto Lumimuse: https://amzn.to/2Dwj2Lh 

I got the 3 LED version with one filter and a dispersion type lens cover:

Planned Parenthood. Some math observations.

Updated July 2018 for new numbers. Scroll to bottom.

If you don't have a little bit of a grasp on strange statistical anomalies, and picking out a different story from Planned Parenthood's own figures than they might intend, you won't find this interesting.

If you might think: "Gee, why would they present the numbers like they do?" then read on.

This sort of analyzation is useful for all statistics. As the saying goes: there are lies, damn lies, and statistics.

So, let's compute.

All numbers are from PP's own material in the 2013-2014 Annual Report:

https://www.plannedparenthood.org/files/6714/1996/2641/2013-2014_Annual_Report_FINAL_WEB_VERSION.pdf

Planned Parenthood's own 2013-2014 numbers say 3% (actually 3.09 so I'd round that to 3.1) of their *services* are abortions. Which is true. 

But if you divide number of abortions by number of PATIENTS, then it's 12.1% So they're off by a factor of 4 if you look at it that way.

Yes this has been noticed and reported on elsewhere.

Planned Parenthood likes to say 3%, but they really should say 12% since we're talking about people here, and not services.

Read on though because it's even higher than 12%. They left out a potentially big detail.

And I couldn't find that number ANYWHERE.

They count things like UTIs and referrals as services, so one patient could have several services performed along with their abortion.

Like a pregnancy test. So a pregnancy test and an abortion doubles the number of services without changing the number of patients.

Convenient if you are trying to downplay abortion rates.

So out of every 8 people in the waiting room, one is there for an abortion.

If you like, they abort the entire city of Santa Ana, CA every year.

But here's something I haven't seen mentioned in as many places: We didn't take out the services performed for men.

They don't have abortions of course.

They get treated for UTIs, STDs, etc. All this: https://www.plannedparenthood.org/learn/men

And the number of male patients doubled between 2003 and 2013. How many is that? Don't know.

I could not find out how many patients were men, or how many were women. From the listing of all the men's services, you'd think it might be a lot but who knows. Maybe not even Planned Parenthood.

Other notable numbers: Pap smears were done only SLIGHTLY more than abortions. It's almost one for one.

1.2 Pap smears for every abortion. I would have thought if we're emphasizing women's health, that number would be a lot higher.

Breast exams? About 1.5 for every abortion.

Pregnancy tests: for every woman who had one done, 1 in 3 got an abortion. There's also no figures on how many were positive vs negative. So that 33% figure could be even higher.

Prenatal services: 17.5 abortions for every prenatal service. So care for the unborn baby seems underemphasized.

Another interesting number: Vasectomies numbered 4166. Women sterilizations number only 822.

So men are 5x as likely to get sterilized at PP as women.

In summary, there is no way to tell the true rate of abortions (i.e. what percentage of women are there for abortions) because you can't take the men's services out of the total number of services.

And also: if you're doing 327,000 abortions which is 150% of the population of Shreveport, La (third largest city in Louisiana) then maybe the vasectomy/sterilization options need to be discussed more.

1 vasectomy for every 75 abortions seems low.

At the very least, I find this interesting and my 'spin' detector reading is elevated.

Update for 2016-2017 Annual Report
You can check the numbers here: https://www.plannedparenthood.org/about-us/facts-figures/annual-report




About the same.

Practically no one gets a vasectomy or a form of sterilization. Just over 1 in 8 patients gets an abortion. For every 3 pregnancy tests done, there's one abortion. For every TWO Breast exams/Pap smear/HPV vaccination (combined total), there's one abortion.

Issues of note with this report:
Still no breakdown of men vs. women, so you can't see what percentage of women patients get an abortion. Close to 10 times as many men get sterilized here vs. women. Yes, I know it's an easier procedure.

Fiat 500e Lease Returns are CHEAP on Ebay

Under $10,000 in almost all cases. I think at this price, you can justify it as an 'extra' vehicle based on the gas savings alone.

I think the prices will increase somewhat over time.

Benefits:
-recharges twice as fast as Nissan Leaf early models (6.6KWHR charger)
-cooled and heated battery pack: should last a lot longer
-many were fairly loaded with leather and nav

There are TONS on Ebay: 500e 'Buy it Now' Listings.

As I write this, I see one for $6988 with 42,000 miles on it. Not much wears on an electric car but tires and brakes. This is nothing.

My Leaf has almost 90,000 and I've done nothing but tires and windshield wiper blades.

What is cryptocurrency? And how can you earn money on it vs using an ad on your site?



This is an alternate way for people to support websites.

It uses a small amount of your computers power to do the math required to 'mine' Monero, which is a form of cryptocurrency like the more well-known bitcoin.

For those who don't know what a cryptocurrency is, it's a big math problem. The computer tries tons and tons of calculations to discover 'keys' that have value, due to their rarity.

Like gold or diamonds are rare, so they have value usually beyond the intrinsic value. Or, further, as paper money has value beyond the paper and ink it's made of.

Cryptocurrency isn't controlled by any government and can be pretty much untraceable and is sort of a worldwide currency.

That's the basics.

You can play with it here:




Loading...


You can control how much CPU it uses by adjusting the Speed option.

I find the best result is using the same thread count as the number of virtual processors you have or on simpler devices, the number of CPU cores.

Another way is to make shortlinks that direct to valuable content, but the link computes a small number of 'hashes' or work units before the visitor is shown the webpage.

You can click -=> HERE <=- to see how that looks.

What speed do you get and on what device? Post in the comments section below.
