Some midday piano practice with my . πŸ‘πŸŽΉπŸ‘πŸ»

Snagged from Reddit 

Listening to ragtime music makes the work day much more pleasant. 🎹 😊 🎢

This was inspired by my middle son, with whom I've been watching "Over the Garden Wall". An amazing animated series if you're into dark fantasy tales, and the music is wonderful!

Enjoying Myocyte with DJ peef (ffog) on while chatting in COM on ...all on the Quadra. 🎢🎧🎢

So, I see that the latest snapshots are tagged as "OpenBSD 6.7-current". Not sure when this happened, but since is slated for release on the 19th of this month, I'm not surprised. 🐑

Just dropped the boys off at home and I'm now headed home myself. Was watching "Over the Garden Wall" with my son and I'm now listening to ragtime music on Pandora via piano bar on my phone. Love that show, and I think the rest of the night will spent with wine and rag. 🎹🎢🍷😊

Taking my time and doing it right with , , and a classic Mac. Perfect! βœ¨πŸ‘Œβœ¨

Doing it old school tonight, just like tonight's "33 & 1/3" with DJ buttstuf's! Listening with a glass of wine in hand and chatting on SDF COM all from the Quadra 650 while buttstuf spins disco tonight on , also played from the Quadra! ✨🎧✨

Some vintage fun on from my Macintosh Quadra 650 during my lunch break. πŸ‘πŸ»

Last one for tonight. The Quadra is on the Internet! 🌐

Alright, so I've left the CD-ROM drive disconnected for now. So much to do still, but it's running. Small victory for now.

And look! Wolfenstein 3D! πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ»

Well, if I unplug the CD-ROM, the 500 MB hard drive boots fine. Otherwise, it can't find the boot disk. I've reseated the SCSI cables and will now attempt to plug the CD-ROM drive back in. Meanwhile, here's what we've got now.

OK. Pulled the drive and put my ear to it. It is definitely dead. Had trouble spinning up, and then I heard that beep...it was emanating from the hard drive (It's a Quantum Viking 4 GB SCSI drive pulled from another Mac way back when).

Luckily, I remembered a bin that had a bunch of ancient hard drives in it. Went back into the garage and pulled out the original drive that was in this Quadra (I think :thinkhappy: ). It's a Seagate ST3600N SCSI drive, and I believe it's a 500 MB drive.

Well, this is a good sign! The hard drive is likely dead, though, but the Mac itself still works! πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ€“

Alrighty then! Time to get these installed on the Quadra 650 and see what else needs tending to. πŸ€“

Just walked in through the door at home a few minutes ago and my package of adapters for the Quadra 650 just got here! πŸŽ‰
