Im posting to share some memories with anyone who had this book as well. I dont have the rights to upload the entire book, so its just the cover rear and 2 pages at random.

Do you remember the Powerbook 1400 covers?

my favorite cover Yeah the Powerbook 1400 had an optional clear cover with paper inserts that you could put under the clear plastic! Ive even scanned one and used it as a template to make my own updated versions. I scanned the folder they came in and the 6 covers I have in jpeg format, all full size images, and zipped them all up. Get them here:

53 images? That's ... that's... a lot.

No, you totally misunderstood the nature of my comment! Consider it a "WOW!" I love them, it's just a lot of work to put them all up. We love to see them, bringing back memories and reminding us of the other cool things we'd heard about but never seen.

Honestly, it was a "We're not worthy" moment.

Post away!

Hi Bo, I love your software photos, especially the eWorld software. I really miss eWorld! I think Apple should start it up again just for us Retro MacCast fans, wouldn't that be a hoot!

The robot, that is from 'BattleBots' the TV series. I did some first aid for the tapings. That was one big thrill. I don't know anything about the 'First' robots, what are those?

Wow! Bo, Banneker is quite an impressive school. Is that F.I.R.S.T. robot game for real? That is amazing, and it look like it would be great fun, and a great challenge.

Sean2300C was a huge help with getting my QuickTake to work with my WallStreet. He posted step by step instructions in the discussion on it. I will try to add the link but it seems not to want to show any links tonite. Here is the link:

Well, the link just won't work no matter how many times I try. So, here is the actual post Sean2300C wrote about how to get the software to install so that the WallStreet will like it:

"I think I may have a solution for your QuickTake camera problem. I tried connecting my QuickTake 100 to my Wallstreet (Mac os 9.2, QuickTime 5.0), and had the same problems as you did. The Wallstreet locked up immediately when I tried to connect to the QuickTake. I think it is an incompatibility between the QuickTake 100 software and Quicktime 5 (or possibly OS 9).

However, we are in luck. The QuickTake 150 software works with the older QuickTake 100. You can download the installer disks off of the Mac Driver Museum. The first step is to disable QuickTime 5 on your Wallstreet. I suggest using the Extensions Manager, and here are the steps to get it working-

1) With the Extensions Manager control panel open, use the View menu and select "as Packages"
2) Scroll down to the Quicktime 5 install, and click the "x" next to the box, so that everything inside is uninstalled.
3) Restart your computer
4) Open up all the QuickTake 150 software disk images, and launch the installer
5) Use the Custom install option, and just install the QuickTake software. If it asks you about newer or older files, keep the newer files!
6) The installer will tell you to restart your computer. Restart your computer, open up the extensions manager and find the "QuickTake Software 2.0.2" Package
7) Disable Quicktime (version 2.1) and QuickTime PowerPlug (version 2.1) within that package, and then enable everything in the Quicktime 5 install
8) Restart your computer, and you should be able to connect and view your QuickTake images!

You can always go back later and install the photoflash software if you like. The pictures from your QuickTake can be viewed within QuickTime's own Picture Viewer. I would suggest avoiding the older version of Colorsync. Let me know if you find any of the steps confusing, I will try my best to clear it up.

Best of luck, and let me know if it works or not!"
