Perfect Search Engine

I probably just found the best search engine for old, vintage computers (including Macs): FrogFind

There's an article with a bit more detail here.

Any thoughts?

Re: macOS GUI frontend for QEMU?

Yes, and it’s certainly still rather rough around the edges and incomplete: for example, VMs must be located in ~/Library/Containers/com.utmapp.UTM/Data/Documents (sandboxed app), and currently it is not possible to store them, for example, on an external drive (which is the ideal solution for thos...

Re: Standard, Extended, or DOS disk

Also, HFS (not HFS+) has a maximum total drive size of 2GB, at least on real hardware.

At least applies when using the 630 rom in Basilisk I presume (had a real Quadra 630 back in the day).

Splittig a hybrid image

There are several hybrid Mac/PC images on the garden, however Mini vMac can't read them because they're hybrid Mac/PC images.

Is there a utility to split the HFS partition from such image?

Toast 18 has no such feature, though it does correctly differentiate between hybrid and HFS-only images.

Of course, the next request then would be clock sync over the modem port :D Because then we've got MIDI.
Any update?

Is the 'Apple Audio Extension' needed in MacOS in Qemu? In SheepShaver, if it happens to be installed (not with a default installation), it is best removed because of possible crashes.

Well it seems like it's an either/or situation. When the "Apple Audio Extension" is enabled, it causes an illegal instruction system bomb at startup and the terminal gets spammed with "Invalid file name" errors. Without the added parameters to get the shared folder, there's no il...
