Re: Old Issues of Byte Magazine

I think they have everything from the first ten years now. If you are interested in this sort of thing, the microfilm collection on Open Library is now massive. I believe "microfilm" is now the largest category on the site with 131,000 separate issues scanned in. I wish I knew where they g...

Old Issues of Byte Magazine

The Open Library microfilm scanner continues to scan, and they've just uploaded a bunch of "Byte" issues from 1983 through 1986. Probably some interesting Macintosh stuff in there.

I dunno if you noticed, but he is taking beta testers. You could probably experiment with it yourself. That's great! I haven't heard from DogCow in years.

Re: Sheepshaver stopped opening on Windows

Nothing really comes to mind. I would just suggest deleting everything but the ROM and disk images you are using. Try downloading (the most recent version) and just setting it up from scratch. That should only take a couple minutes. If something is wrong in the prefs file that will take care of it. ...

You sure it isn't just starting minimized? For some reason, it sometimes starts but is already minimized, with an icon down in the task bar. You don't see a window for even a moment in that case.
