My favourite waste of time.

Picked up this little machine in a charity auction. Has a hard drive installed and a box of random disks.

Wordworth

Last night was all about doing something practical on a vintage computer so I managed to get hold of a copy of wordworth for the Amiga. Something I used a lot for school work especially gcse. It even prints to my laserjet!

Amiga 500 Plus

First post in a while and first Amiga post. Last night I performed the drive swap hack so I can boot from DF1 which has a gotek usb drive attached.

I will post some updates on my Amiga collection as I have a few nifty bits of nostalgia.

A little update

Well I has been a while. I have bought loads of new apples including a Twentieth Annversary mac and will attempt to update over the next few weeks. Unfortunately I had to replace the mac-mann server with a Dell but I am looking to resurrect it when funds allow.

Here are some photo’s of my new toys.

.im

Mac-Mann now has an im domain. IM is the TLD (top level domain) for the Isle of Man. Many thanks to the Isle of Man government for allowing me the manx spelling of Man (Mann).

If you are in the market for a short domain whether you are manx or not check out www.nic.im as well as www.domicilium.com for complete hosted solutions and connectivity.

Not sure if you have seen the video for 1999 by Charli XCX but there are some geeky references in it. #imac #netscape

From the ashes!

£50 on facebook saw me obtaining this iMac 24 inch. A strip, clean and replacement internal PSU sees this mac living to fight another day as it was randomly switching off!

IIcx – Restoration

Oldest Mac I own. A IIcx from about 1989. It now switches on and runs thanks to 4 capacitors that needed replacing.
