I had fun creating this on my MacSE and then (less fun trying to share it to all my Macs, classic and none). It works on BasilliskII Emulator. I had to download HyperCard 2.4 (I created it on HyperCard 1.25 in the MacSE). So I have two files to run this great prototype. It works best on the original Mac SE, Classic, etc… because it fills the screen, but it works great in Emulators too.

I also made a YouTube video (haha fun times...)

Have fun, I had fun making this, as I wanted to get some use out of my MacSE. Every piece of TECH needs to have a “Killer App”, the reason you pick it up and use it. Here’s my list for example:

- Macintosh SE: The whole Steve Jobs intro, let’s get Macintosh to speak for it’s self… “… it sure is great to get out of that Bag, Never trust a computer you can’t carry… Thanks to Steve who’s been like a father to me”, haha

- HP48SX Calculator: I wrote an Amortization Schedule that will list your Mortgage on the screen and let you scroll through it.

- NeXTStation: Librarian, and reading the entire Bible into Sound.app that saves .snd files. It’s still has great sound

- Macintosh Classic: This was a fish bowl, till too many Beda’s died, now it’s just a clock, check out the cutout and fun I did with this one:

- PowerBook 180c: This guy is a bridge machine, allowing me to use Single, Double Density Floppy disk that can read/write contents to modern floppy drives and drives of machines like Macintosh SE

- Newtons: Ah they are just AWESOME! The experience is just the killer thing about it. When I bought one of these guys, I just bought it for a vintage device, not thinking I was going to use it. Just to put it in my collection. But I ended up using it for 9 months, till I had to upgrade and use it more. POWERFUL! A device I just wanted to have as part of a collection, and it became something I could not LIVE without!

- Palms: Ah well, they are nice, not really useful, I do keep track of which Book, Chapter if the Bible I’m done reading, and it has nice checklists

- HP620LX PalmTop: This guy has MS Pocket Access, so I wrote an MS Access Database to get my finances from my bank, and do a whole bunch of analysis, graphic, categorizing, etc all that good stuff, and I’m able to see those tables on the PalmTop. Some limited graphs too. This was an interesting development, as you can’t store the share volume of data on it, so I had to create “DataMarts” to store the aggregated analyses data. I do this sort of stuff for work, It was almost a project that helped me understand and hone my skills, haha. I still do this transfer/syncing every month. I actually had to PHONE Microsoft to activate my Virtual Box Windows XP machine. Haha

- Power Mac, iMac, etc.: Classic mode to be able to transfer files from old-school to new world, plus they are just cool, the Hardware and Software!

Very cool!

Thanks for sharing!

Was a big Newton fan way back when.....used it a lot and it worked great.

Even participated in Newton protest at Apple headquarters when Jobs killed off the Newton....

HyperCard was a great program too......

Those were the days.....

Yeah, I was the funny looking guy in the middle.....




It was a fun experience, although, unfortunately, didn't have much impact on the Newton....sad to say.....
