Re: E-Maculation is Twenty Years Old!

A rather belated Happy Birthday :).

I got an AmigaOne XE G4 machine a couple of years ago. Funny to think that those are now becoming 'vintage'. I wonder if I can run MOL on it. I keep meaning to try out Linux on my various PPC systems.

Re: E-Maculation is 15!

Hi ClockWise. You guys have done a nice job of keeping this site up to date in the last few years :). I don't use emulators much any more, but I just got myself a Toshiba Libretto 100CT, with a Pentium MMX processor. Its a really tiny little machine and has a nice installation of Windows 95 on it.

Re: Idea: Macintosh OS on PC Natively

It would be cool to have MacOS run natively on a PC, but as has already been mentioned, there isn't really much point. I wonder how much effort it would actually take to do this though? Probably quite a lot. If memory serves, I once made a bootable floppy disk which would boot to DOS and load Fusion...

Re: ClarisCAD

I've had ClarisCAD running on my old PowerBook 1400, and I'm pretty sure I had it running in an emulator. Might have been on my other PC though. If you want a modern alternative, you might want to have a look at QCad. I've used this on Linux once of twice and it was quite easy to get going for some ...

BitlBee did get updated recently I think, but it is still used in the same way, so there shouldn't be any need to update the guide.

Hi, I recommended the second hard disk because you need to install a bootloader if you want to run OSX on a second partition on your one disk. Dual booting can be done, but could also go wrong and you would loose the possibility of booting into your other OS. So, if you start, detach your first dis...

Thanks for the links Cat.

Now I have to find a retail OSX disk 8O .

Why do you recommend using a separate HD? I currently only have one HD in the computer, though I was thinking of putting two in when I built the machine. I suppose I could buy another one next year.

I have ADSL here. I only got in 2005 though. I was quite happy with V90, except it was too slow sometimes, particularly with big files. I do tend to download a lot of files which are in excess of 1MB so the DSL is useful for that. It only costs £6 per month as well, with a 10GB limit, and a speed of...

The Automatic Restart option was checked, so I unchecked it, but the problem still occurs.

It is only the old version of BII which does this. A couple of other older programmes made it restart as well.

This appears in Event Viewer.
