Buick Dimensions 1990 Computer Program on a Macintosh SE/30

Warning: This video contains flickering and animating patterns.

Last night (10/05/2011), just ten minutes prior to my BlogTV show and before I had any idea that Steve Jobs had passed away, I found my long lost (since 2005!) Macintosh SE/30 while looking for a scan converter. I rescued this machine from work back in 2004. As found it was mostly dead. Call me silly, but I didn’t have the heart to leave it that way. I resoldered much of the analog board and it sprang back to life. Some folks might call my rediscovery of the machine more than just a coincidence!

Here is a long-lost (almost totally lost, at least from my personal collection) something for all you Buick fans out there. GM commissioned the so-called “1990 Buick Dimensions” to show you everything their new 1990 Buick models had to offer, alongside a few “fun features” such as a reference atlas and a geography game. I rescued this from a disk box at work and thought it lost forever when the disk disappeared in the 2004 basement flood and I could not find my Macintosh SE/30. I feared it had been lost, along with the last vestige of this program.

This program will run on a color Macintosh, although it looks completely wrong, with funny colors. I know it will run on a Power PC machine with Mac OS 9.2.2, and seem to recall that it also ran well in the Classic environment of Mac OS X as provided on PowerPC systems running Mac OS X 10.4 or earlier.

Despite all this program does, it fits into approximately 780 kilobytes of disk space. That’s really something to think about even today, when even the smallest of programs may consume a few megabytes of space. The disk actually said “feel free to copy and pass on to your friends”, so that is what I will do. I will get this program off of the computer, though it’s probably going to require pulling the hard drive. Woohoo. It’s been a long time since I had any of the “original” Macintosh computers apart. Hopefully I can find my case spreader and long screw drivers.

I’d love to know if GM ever did this for other model years, what the first year these were offered might have been, if there was a PC version, and if the other GM divisions had something similar (other than the CD-ROMs offered in the 2000s). I’d like to save any other examples that there were.

Rather amazingly, it would appear that the Inmar Group is still in business.

Entrance to Octopus Garden

On Explore/Flickr Top 500, Dec. 4, 2008
__________________________________________________________________

This is not really Octopus Garden. The noontime’s heat was at its peak, so it is wise to get to a shade. Looking at the view, I wondered about a place called Octopus garden, a fictional place in a song Octopus Garden. I just recalled a song, by Ringo Starr(Beatles, 1969). It goes like this(excerpts) :

…I’d ask my friends to come and see, An octopus’ garden with me
I’d like to be under the sea, In an octopus’ garden in the shade.

We would be warm below the storm, In our little hideaway beneath the waves
Resting our head on the sea bed, In an octopus’ garden near a cave
We would sing and dance around, because we know we can’t be found

I’d like to be under the sea, In an octopus’ garden in the shade…

In The Equalizer, Denzel Washington plays McCall, a man who believes he has put his mysterious past behind him and dedicated himself to beginning a new, quiet life. But when McCall meets Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), a young girl under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, he can’t stand idly by – he has to help her. Armed with hidden skills that allow him to serve vengeance against anyone who would brutalize the helpless, McCall comes out of his self-imposed retirement and finds his desire for justice reawakened. If someone has a problem, if the odds are stacked against them, if they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer.
