Work from home continues with my Macintosh SE/30

Another week at home, another retro terminal to work from, my 128MB Macintosh SE/30! I've talked about this bad boy a lot in the last few months. It's such a workhorse, and everytime I get on it I'm transported to 1990. The terminal I'm using is...

Using my MegaSTe for another week of working from home

My retro computer for this week is my MegaSTe. I chose it mainly because of pizza week over at /r/RetroBattlestations I'm not quite sure when and where I picked up this MegaSTe. It probably came from eBay. I really wanted an STe model, and then I...

Working from home on the iMac G4

Another week working from home, another week with a piece of retro equipment. The iMac G4 mamay not technically be retro, but I believe it is old enough! This particular model was bought during the OS X 10.3 release party at the Apple Store....

Last week's WFH setup

For last week I decided to dig out one of my VT420 terminals. This particular terminal was picked up from a school auction back in the late 90s or early 00s. I remember looking at the terminals they had for sale at the start of the day when they were …

Working from home on the //c+

In honor of Apple's 44th birthday today, I decided to set up my //c+ as a terminal using my homebuilt wifi modem. Getting modem.mgr going was not fun, but once I read the manual and figured it out, I was good to go. The vt220 emulation didn't give me …

Assembling my Floppy Emu from Big Mess O' Wires

Back on February 1st I ordered a Floppy Emu from Big Mess O' Wires. The Floppy Emu emulates a floppy disk drive. Floppy disk images can be stored on the SD card and mounted from the Floppy Emu itself. This makes it a lot easier to transfer and...

I now have 128MB of RAM in my SE/30!

Well, I couldn't find my long handle T-15 Torx screwdriver, but it turns out I didn't have to. Apparently, when I installed the SCSI2SD, I never put the screws back in by the handle. While that works in my favor now, I'm going to need to dig...

Upgrading my SE/30 to 128MB of RAM

My trusty Macintosh SE/30 has had 5MB of RAM in it since I installed the SCSI2SD and System 7.1. Now that I have a [modem/ppp] device available, I want to upgrade to System 7.5. From what I've been able to find, I really need at least …

Getting online with my Macintosh SE/30

One of my goals for creating the CHIP wifi modem was to use it as a networking device with my SE/30. Today I tried it out as a modem. My first issue was the fact I didn't have any communication software on the SE/30. Well, I take that …
