Here's my first program, originally written for my Apple II+ when I was in 5th grade. It was pretty much a screen saver, so this appears to be a perfect section to post it. 10 REM ---JOBY'S SNAKE--- 20 DIM S$(5) 30 S$ = "<--->" 40 FOR I = 1 TO 35 50 TAB I: PRINT S$ 60 NEXT I 70 FOR...

Crazy Ideas

How about some crazy ideas that just might be cool enough to try? List them here.

I'd love to see the old tape drive input used again, but replaced with an iPod streaming the data via a WAV file. :mrgreen:

sound board

I would like to create a sound card. The idea to model it from came from the sound card for the Chaos I: http://koo.corpus.cam.ac.uk/chaos/ which mentioned: The soundcard was constructed from this TI analog IC: a, so-called, complex sound generator. The SN76477 chip contained all of the major parts ...

I've done some small kits, but this was definitely the largest I've done... those ICs sure do improve your skill, though! 8)

:wink: Luckily, my electronics skills lack enough to prevent me from first using the tools of the trade (actually I only own a $10 soldering iron and a multimeter that I really don't use). I crossed my fingers and searched for an obvious physical sign first. As luck would have it... I was forgetful....

Update

Without a specially designed expansion card, the info streaming in appears to be too fast for the serial I/O card to process in the same way as Hyper Terminal.

Working!

Finally! :D For the life of me, I couldn't seem to get Hyper Terminal on XP service pack 2 via USB to Serial working... however, I was able to get Windows 98 SE via Serial port on my old laptop working perfectly. Directions in the manual were perfect. Its really nice to be able to store a program in...

Getting serial I/O card to work

I'm having some issues trying to get the serial I/O card to work. I'm on XP using Hyper Terminal... followed the settings outlined in the manual. Using a USB to Serial cable. No communication across hyper terminal. I've tried setting to all the COM ports available, just in case I was on the wrong on...

GPS interface

I'm toying with the idea of connecting a Garmin GPS to the serial I/O card or build a card for the expansion slot. GPSs can stream data in a simple ASCII format via serial... only catch is 4800 baud. Would be ideal to use the serial I/O card (which is 2400 baud?), then just write a BASIC program tha...

Getting garbage on first powerup?

I felt rather ashamed when I figured out what the cause was from first powering up and getting odd garbage on the monitor, but thought others might have the same problem. I had left the ASCII/PS2 jumper (lower-right corner) on (which is how it comes in the kit), and if using a PS/2 keyboard it shoul...

Dell Monitors

I'm using a Dell 2001 FP, which has an analog video input among others allowing for builtin switching between my Mac, PC and Replica I. :) Works perfectly. The monitor does a great job auto detecting signals and settings. http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/ProductDetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&cs=19&...
