Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

"This IS the greatest Original Mac/Mac Plus repair book ever. Too bad it's out of print. I repaired 8 Macintoshes (5 without parts!) based on the information provided in this book. Now I can't find it anywhere, and I've got a dead Mac Plus, with a unrecognized problem. Such is life. And no, from what I hear, the newer Dead Mac Scrolls book only covers COLOR Mac Classic & newer. Darn"

Programming the Apple II in Assembley Language
by Rodnay Zaks (Author)
Paperback: 551 pages
Publisher: Longman Higher Education (16 Dec 1985)
ISBN-10: 0895882906
ISBN-13: 978-0895882905
A review by By  Glen Compton    
This book does require a little bit of previous experience in assembly, but only a little as it has a VERY extensive warm up on programming. It is a great book for dabbling in Atari or NES homebrew, and sheds light on more complicated techniques, without being overly specific of a particular hardware setup.
If you read some basics of the hardware you want to work on, this book will take your work to new heights. it even gives great techniques for reducing memory use and/or processor use (which is extremely important on legacy architectures.)
If there is one book you can buy to improve your 6502 knowledge and programming techniques, this is it!
Seriously, avoid other books on the 6502 until you've read this!!!

Sad Macs, Bombs, and Other Disasters and What To Do About Them Date: March 1997 Sad Macs, Bombs, and Other Disasters and What To Do About Them

Sad Macs, Bombs, and Other Disasters and What To Do About Them, Third Edition is the definitive guide to have on hand when your Apple Macintosh rolls a bomb in your general direction. (For the MacNovice, the bomb indicates a terminal system error.) The book is the complete guide to troubleshooting the Mac, and has an entry for every imaginable disaster that might befall your Mac from bootup to shutdown. Along the way, you'll find some incidental treasure--advice on tuning your Mac, using virtual memory, decoding the deep mysteries of the System Folder, and performing routine maintenance tasks to keep your system cranking along at top speed. This edition also features new information on PCI Macs, PowerPC Powerbooks, coverage of Mac System 7.5/7.6 issues, and an entirely new chapter on Internet protocols, Web browsers, PPP and similar issues emphasizing "problems and solutions."

Sad Macs is not only well written, it's elegantly organized. Besides the kind of comprehensive index you might wish for in a troubleshooting guide, the author also includes an elaborate "Symptom Index." The final third of the book is devoted to "Fix-It" guides to specific problem sets, such as diagnosing problems with system extensions, and throughout these guides are usefully cross-referenced. If you've got a Mac, this is an essential utility, and a must-have desktop reference guide.

Book Info
Contents include information on Mac OS 9, FireWire, USB, iMacs, iBooks, G4s, QuickTime 4, DVD drives, infrared connections, cable modems, what to do when the system freezes, how to handle memory problems, strategies for managing extension snafus, how to overcome Internet connection hurdles, and more.
