Got my Uther card connected to my Apple //e with no problem in slot 1. Used small rubber feet to make sure that the card would not touch the neighboring cards, worked well.
Doug, thats a good idea. I will look into providing something like that with the card.
I had no problem setting the IP address manually, and then using DHCP. Both worked well and I was able to ping. Made the mistake of setting the screen saver to 0 timeout. Don't do that, especially if you have transwarp active. Very difficult to backtrack through menu's with the screensaver kicking on constantly. I figured 0 would disable screensaver, wrong.
Would suggest for anyone else in that situation that the easiest way around that would be to delete the contiki.cfg file. It would be recreated automatically with the deafults next time you boot.
HTTP worked well definately looks different without multicolors and
graphics, but speed seemed more than adequate for text only.
FTP still needs work, but that information is on the web site i believe.
Would be nice to have a simple ftp from the command line, that you could
Out of memory problems are interesting. Don't seem to affect anything. Never
got one with the screensaver, but did when switching from other programs.
Maybe they don't happen on a GS.
The web browser is a very tight fit. nothing else will load with the exception of a screensaver while it is running. Other smaller apps will load concurrently. You just have to experiment. In most cases i just run stuff sequentially.
If a 65816 version was ever ported then that restriction would no longer be an issue.
When/If I ever get the GS I won off ebay
I'll try it out. Of course that is nothing to the5 weeks waiting for a spare power supply from this guy with an answer "I think I sent it today, not sure", Sorry, digressing. Anyway the manufacturing of this product is very professional. Just waiting for FTP.
Thanks for the nice feeback.
I'll post more as I get the time, been playing with adding hard disks and transferring disk images.
Have a fine Apple Day. Doug
