Experiments with computing, electronics, and maker crafts.
Finally cracking open the disk hoard from last week. Of the first nine (9) disks chosen at random, only one (1) was readable. Not surprising, but it’s making me balance the value of my time against the possibility that I find something interesting that isn’t already a d64 online.
Huge retro haul! Very long photo thread follows. I brought back a minivan full of stuff from @RayCarlsenPSU’s place! Ray makes brand new Commodore power supplies and fixes Commodore monitors, and was cleaning house.
I was all excited to post a PowerBook G3 photo thread today but I think I killed it by attempting a hard drive upgrade. With original HD still stuck in this 3-sec on/off cycle. Anyone familiar? [Edit: I fixed it! The modem was disconnected after I had reassembled it. I’m preserving this post for the photos.]
Important technical notes I took, let’s say a while ago. Retro Twitter points for whomever can identify the subject of the first page.
