First game I set up to play on the Apple IIgs after getting her going, was Bard's Tale.  Keys don't work right for some reason, going to update it to ProDos and see if it helps any.

Shooting of the second video is a little behind the curve atm; installed OSX on the Dell last night, but it won't take with the built in Ethernet adapter.  Installed Netrunner on it last night afterwards, but decided to install Ubuntu Studio so that maybe I can do full screen for the PC side of the recovery project's second video; creating diskettes from ADTpro.  I think the second one is going to be setting up Java/RXTX etc instead.  The process is similar for OSX, LiNUX and Windows, I know, I've done all three :)  Anyway, I really appreciate the views so far from you guys, and I should have something later this evening hopefully.

Converting the desktop video captures did some freaky things to the videos, added huge amounts of dead spots that I'm having to edit out.  It is tedious, but I'm on the last conversion and hopefully will have it done.  Tried using a Windows program that I actually purchased, didn't pan out so I downloaded some more LiNUX programs and will finish it up on the LiNUX box.

Okay, I haven't posted much here, things have been a little busy, the small business I work for researching outdoor power equipment parts, selling parts, helping customers, etc. let me open up shop inside the shop with computer repairs.  So I've been doing two jobs in one place.  Within the last few months I've also been working on a side project that drove me bananas because of two things.  Instructions for using some software were cryptic, the video using said software was cryptic at a crucial point.  The second, I didn't pay attention to my own notes when I pinned out a cable I purchased from eBay.  Once I got past those two things, the project of getting Apple II data to a PC to burn on to disc flew fast.  I made a video of the how to, it will be in two parts, this is the trailer.

The trailer, believe me, it is better than the movie :)

After I do the Apple IIGS series, while figuring out what I'm going to do for a camera, I think the Commodore 64/128 will be next, then the Amiga after that.  And I'll finally get around to the Apple IIe that died on me before I got this project for the IIGS to PC done.

I still don't understand why Classic is called "vanilla"; regardless of how it was, there was nothing "vanilla" about Classic World of Warcraft.  Blizzard took the best parts of other MMORPG's, added their own twists, avoided mechanics that people didn't like in other games and boom, but there was absolutely nothing "vanilla" about it.  I came from Ultima Online, if you want to call something "vanilla" the predecessors to World of Warcraft would fit that description better than World of Warcraft.

You did a great job on this!  I did one of these not too long ago, but I also had to swap in another motherboard from a donor HP that the case it self was at the point that I didn't feel like cleaning it.  So I took the MB, the RAM and processor (w/ cooler) and cleaned them all up and installed them in place of the dead motherboard.  The RAM, and Processor ended up being an upgrade over all.  Those HP cookie cutter cases will sometimes support a regular Micro ATX motherboard, so you could quite possibly just install a newer board, processor and RAM for him at some point, maybe a new power supply as well.

Here is the first part of the Apple IIGS to PC project, the second part will better detail how to get images from the PC to floppy on the IIGS (or other Apple II computers), the third part will be on a PC and will show you how to extract data from disk images.  I have another project, that I might need to complete before I can complete the others, so it may pop up sooner.  In essence, I botched the upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 on an Intel based tablet I purchased.  I need to get this tablet working before my grandson comes up to visit, this is his "movie" machine and I need to get it working.  I am going to detail the steps on how I botched the upgrade, and the steps needed to install LiNUX on the tablet since I have absolutely no idea what my Windows 8.1 key is for this tablet.  That starts tonight, I left my card reader at work, and my powered USB hub that I need.

The trailer is better, but hopefully this will be useful to someone.

I'm working on a couple of projects on the side involving Apple II and Commodore 64/128 computers and getting personal data from 5.25" floppies to optical media.  Normally I would have people send their diskettes off to someone to do this, but the folks don't want a third party they don't know handling their floppies.  But I'm at a loss for doing the Apple II stuff.  I set up ADTpro, I got a DIN8 Male to DB9 Male serial cable, a null modem, and a relatively modern PC with a serial port on it, but am having no luck what so ever.  I need a little bit more hardware to pull off both projects.  Can I post a Kickstarter here?

I made a video, have an older camera, no cameraman, and I'm fat, I suck at editing, but I did manage to cut out all the dead space.  It is exporting now, I'll upload to YouTube and share here.

If you could share this around for me I would be grateful :)
Recovering data from 5.25" Apple diskettes from approximately 1984 for family of deceased parents that made them.

Your explanation of how a refrigerator works is spot on, and simple enough that anyone should understand why using a refrigerator is a crappy idea.  Additionally, the fridge is going to use more electricity the hotter what is inside gets.

His "cubby" is killing the north bridge more than likely, causing the random and frequent crashes/reboots.
