A while ago, I bumped into

Almost completed updating my AA battery tests sheet…  Some surprises in there if you’re still buying Alkaline AA’s…I’ve included some that I have a… – James Lewis – Google+

The list is at and has since then be updated.

One of my surprises is that most of the NiMh batteries have larger capacities can virtually all of the Alkaline ones.

OS X – the versions and their names – as I always forget them

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/04/03

I always forget which OS X versions there are and which names they use.

So via: OS X – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, I made this list where the first item points to the table in the above article and each subsequent item to the individual article on the version. I tried to find EOL dates, but that’s hard despite the overview at Apple security updates – Apple Support:

None of this would be noteworthy if Apple, like Microsoft and a host of other major software vendors, clearly spelled out its support policies. But Apple doesn’t, leaving users to guess about when their operating systems will fall off support. | Computerworld


PS: EOL dates are as of 20160403.

Please Help Us Track Down Apple II Collections « ASCII by Jason Scott

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/04/03

Conditions are very, very good right now for easy, top-quality, final ingestion of original commercial Apple II Software and if you know people sitting on a pile of it or even if you have a small handful of boxes, please get in touch with me to arrange the disks to be imaged.

For example, piles and piles of educational software has returned from potential oblivion, because it’s about the preservation, not the title. Wonderfully done works are being brought back to life and are playable on the Internet Archive.

In other words: if you have or know someone who has disks with original, uncracked software that cannot be copied easily, let the team at the WayBack machine know as they have the resources that can help preserve that software.
