Things I have learned

So, while not a whole lot of retrocomputing has been going on, I have still been pottering along.

I have identified that one of my three SCSI HDDs is bad. As it was given to me in a “Unknown, most likely dead” state, I didn’t shed too many tears.

I have discovered it’s really hard to crimp on 50 way IDC connectors. Use a vise and a vise liner. It’s just easier.

I’m still waiting on a bunch of “stuff” from China to arrive. Once it does, I’ll be able to play with some more SCSI goodies.

It turns out that Apple IIgs games came (As far as anyone can determine) exclusively on 3½” floppy disks, so no games for me until I get my Floppy Disk emulator.
