The project is understatement itself, simply called Prodos 2.4. It updates ProDOS, the last version of which, 2.0.3, was released in 1993.
You can download it, or boot it in an emulator on the webpage, here.
As an update unto itself, this item is a wonder – compatibility has been repaired for the entire Apple II line, from the first Apple II through to the Apple IIgs, as well as cases of various versions of 6502 CPUs (like the 65C02) or cases where newer cards have been installed in the Apple IIs for USB-connected/emulated drives. Important utilities related to disk transfer, disk inspection, and program selection have joined the image. The footprint is smaller, and it runs faster than its predecessor (a wonder in any case of OS upgrades).
The entire list of improvements, additions and fixes is on the Internet Archive page I put up [ https://archive.org/details/ProDOS_2_4 ]."
But I guess young buyers aren't learning how to drive a true manual transmission anymore.
Funny thing is back in the late 80s my dad ended up with a quattro Audi 5000 because the FWD only came in auto.
Now I need a stand for it. I could buy one off of CL or a store, but why not make one! I have a whole bunch of left-over PVC tubing, elbow and joints that were just sitting there doing nothing. Might as well make something of it, rather than sit there.
I followed most of the instructions found here on indestructables http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-a-PVC-guitar-stand/ but I didn't glue any of the joints together so it really didn't support my guitar as it was too heavy to hold the neck up via friction. I didn't have any 1/2" PVC stuff - all mine is 3/4 so I had to hack a couple of elbow joints to make things narrow enough to support the neck.
I added the back brace but the centre of gravity was too far back and it my guitar would tip backwards. I decided to prop the rear of the base up with the 4-way joints and it moved the COG forward enough for it to stand! Rather than have nothing hold the front, I decided to use a 3-way to make a little front lip to hold it all together!
It's all friction fit together and is quite sturdy. It definitely isn't pretty, but hey, it was a fun way to spend a few hours this afternoon. Took me about 2 hours to put it all together.
I might put a 4-way cross joint to tie together the neck support and the back brace so that it becomes one unit rather than two separate pieces, but the cantilever support works fine. It's ugly, but heck, it was fun to build!
DIY and Indestructables FTW!
“You get 16 years for forcibly entering your way into a computer, but you get one year for forcibly entering your way into a woman. I think that’s the precedent the government is setting here.”
The students, Trent Mays and Ma’Lik Richmond, who were found guilty of raping an unconscious 16-year-old, served two years and ten months, respectively.
The original crime took place back in August of 2012. The rape, which was broadcast on social media, provoked a national debate over “rape culture” that has only intensified in recent months because of the three-month prison sentence of the Stanford rapist, Brock Turner.
The hack secured crucial evidence that helped to convict Mays and Richmond, but what KnightSec leader, KYAnonymous (Lostutter), and fellow hacker Noah McHugh revealed was that there had also been a massive coverup of the crime. Steubenville coaches, school administrators, and even prosecutors were implicated in this coverup.
