After listening to Episode 140 of RMC, I was inspired by Nathan's request for someone to get Grackle68k working on a 1mb machine.
So, I dug out my very first mac, my old Mac plus, with external hard drive, and Asante EN/SC SCSI ethernet adapter. I formatted the hard drive, and reloaded System 6.0.8 on it. The old installation was all gummed up with my old inits, and with less than 128k of free RAM available.
After reloading System 6, I put Grackle68k on a floppy using my Powerbook 540c hooked to my EEE PC 1000H as an intermediary. I put the disk in my drive, and copied it to my hard drive, and exicuted it. It needs at least 384k available, and I have more than 512k free.
Unfortunately, it must not run under System 6. I got a error, but with continue and restart buttons. So, I ran it again, and it crashed with an unknown error (2), and froze the whole machine.
So now, I need to load System 7 on the drive. I will be using System 7.0.1 with the tune up, if I can find the 800k images.
Watch this space, I should have it running soon. I will soon be tweeting on a 1mb mac from 1986!! (actually earlier, since my Plus is an upgraded 128k/512k with the old style faceplate.)

I already tweeted on my Powerbook 540c. It's only a matter of time now...
