Re: Test equipment

I have a Bitscope Micro. It works GREAT, and their Linux support is pretty good too ( which is improtant to me ).

http://www.bitscope.com/product/BS05/

They have other models with more features, and higher prices. But the Micro does everything I need it to do.

Anyone using the replica 1 for anything interesting?

So my youngest one wants to build a claw machine. I was thinking of using an Arduino, but then I thought it might be interesting to use a Replica 1 to control it.

Am I nuts, or is it a cool idea?

I would rather have a serial port than keyboard and video ports. You can always connect a terminal to it, or even a pocket term ... OR create some kind of video based i/o board for the expansion slot.

I know this would be less like a real apple 1, but it would make it more useful.

I'm thinking about it.

It might be a cool platform to teach my kid programming.

How could would be to have a kid that writes Nintendo games?

New 8-bit computer!

The fine folks at Playpower.org have brought the Famicom platform to the US:

And, it's pretty inexpensive at just $50.00.

I have a Sun Ultra 60 I run headless as a server. Something like this would be a an interesting device to use as a console. I don't think the Sun does anything weird as far as serial goes . I use a VT320 as it's console ... and it does some odd things ( like using ctrl-3 for esc - makes working in U...

Decomposing a number into powers of two

This is the first step in me getting a program that does multiplication using the method described in the Rhind Papyrus for Egyptian Multiplication is decomposing a given number by powers of two. This simple little program seems to do the trick. 100 PRINT "DECOMP OF A NUMBER TO POWERS OF 2"...

Sieve of Eratosthenes

Here is my Woz BASIC Implementation of a prime number finder using the Sieve of Eratosthenes. You can crank up N a bit, but eventually you'll get MEM FULL ERR. 100 PRINT "*** SIEVE OF ERATOSTHENES ***" 120 N=100 130 DIM S(N) 140 LET P=2 150 FOR I = 1 TO N 160 S(I) = I 170 N...

CBM Basic as Open Source for Modern Computers

This was made by some how de-compiler. It is C, but the one file is HUGE!

http://www.pagetable.com/?p=48

It Compiles just fine on My Mac Book running 10.5.5. Later when I get one of my SGI's up and running, I'll try to build it under IRIX as well.

Arbitrary precision integer math in BASIC

I've been playing around with the doing arbitrary precision math in basic. I figured out one way ( don't know if it's good or not ), that uses arrays. One limitation maybe entering in the numbers. Another, of course is memory. I wrote a fibonacci calculator that finds fibonacci numbers out to 35 pla...

Would the Supper encoder buy me anything for a Replica I SE?

Now that I have a II+ Keyboard, I am wondering if Vince's Super Encoder would do my any good for hooking it up to my Replica I?

Thanks.

ATX Power Supply?

Now that I have an Apple II + keyboard for my Replica I SE, I need an ATX power supply. I'm wondering if there is a minimum Wattage that is needed, or will any 250 or 300 watt supply work?

Thanks.
