Mac TI-92 IDE v1 Beta by Jerome Cornet
Posted by Nick on 12 August 2000, 03:20 GMT

I'm writing these two news items not in the same order of my posting them. It's confusing and troubling me. At any rate, Jerome Cornet emailed me a few days ago (sorry for the late post) about his adding Mac TI-92 IDE v1 Beta to our archives. Any Macintosh users (like Amitai *grin*) will enjoy this program and its features quite a great deal. This program is a result of David Ellsworth's porting of the Fargo source about a month ago. A68K and FLinker have now been successfully ported to the Macintosh platform. The programs generated are identical to the fargo development kit for DOS and Linux. At the moment, no TI-92 Plus support is available, but this still looks really good, and it's such a wonderful step in the right direction for the Mac platform. This will run on any Mac with System 7 (also a good techno band).

This is great news!!! Too bad I don't have a 92, 'cause it'd go great with my *deliciously* BRAND NEW iMac DV Special Edition Graphite. Paid $1500 for it, 500MHz G3 processor, 128MB RAM, 30GB Hard Drive, DVD Player, and Cows. Yum.

-Fil and his only $0.02, after investing in the above

Does your Mac skip when trying to play MP3's and doing anything else at the same time?

Windows does, yet Linux won't!

I really do want to know anyone who uses Mac's help me out here, Please!

No, Windows 5uck5, Linux r0ck5 the R0ck5 from which it came!

Now, I just really want to know can Macs handled true 32-bit processing like Linux, or are the faking it like Micro$oft Win9x?

Every Mac from about 1991 on is 32-bit enabled. Older Macs back to 1984 can be 32-bit enabled with an extension.

G4s have a 128-bit data path, and can process four 32-bit streams at the same time!

Does Linux skip if one of the other programs running crashes? The Mac doesn't...
Steve Jobs made a big deal in one of his presentations... he was running a quicktime movie and intentionally made another program crash... the movie continued seamlessly.

NO, If you pull up a terminal window and run "top" you can monitor how much mem, cpu, etc. that each and every running process is using up.

On my old Pentium 200 MMX W/128MB RAM, I would be editing Webpages, Playing MP3's in XMMS, editing graphics in The GIMP, and at least 8 Virtual Desktops full of such and similar activities with at least 3-8 programs running in each one.

Sometimes, I would even copy large amount of data with all of this going on, (1-2 gig's of MP3's)

MP3's never skipped Not even if anything else where to crash, and they only took up 5% of my CPU at MOST!!!
Of course with Linux, anything crashing at all is very rare. If it is to crash you simply kill the process that froze up, etc. and continue as if nothing had happened. This is much more efficient than the Microsoft "reboot often" quick fix.

Not only this but you can have 6 different actual terminal windows (alt+F1) - (alt+F6) + 6 instances of X-Windows running "GNOME, Window Maker, Enlightenment, Blackbox, KDE, etc." all at the same time. (ctrl+alt+F7) - (ctrl+alt+F12). If this isn't a real OS with Killer possibilities then what is?

Actually, that presentation was about the upcoming Mac OS X.

That is so cool you got a new iMac SE, I got graphite iMac back in Feb. with 400MHz and it is the best computer I've ever used. It honestly blows the 800 and 900MHz Pentium IIIs away that I have used before. The iMovie software is the coolest. I can't wait until iMovie 2 can be downloaded in Sept. You're also really lucky because you get the new optical mouse and bigger keyboard. Trust me the $1500 is well worth it, you won't be disappointed. Apple ROCKS!!! Post a message on how you like, I would love to know.

I certainly hope that last sentence means 'System 7 or above'. The current up-to-date version of the operating system is 9.0.4!

Yes, it'll run on any OS, including and above System 7.

I dont suppose there's much chance of us getting a decent z80 dev environment? I thought there was one in the works a few months ago, but guess nothing really ever came of it.

A few months ago I had the opportunity to beta test a z80 IDE for Mac. It looked pretty good, one or two problems, but I didn't hear much from the author after he sent me the program; unfortunately, I also lost his email address.
We need a stable development environment for the Mac. I'm working on one as a side project, but I doubt I'll ever finish it. Maybe if I have some free time...
For now, I use BBEdit and caz on the Mac, and of course the incredible Assembly Studio 86 on both Virtual PC and a real PC.
