Cool: Apple mini-assembler found inside Woz’ monitor inside Apple II Integer Basic

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/01/18

From a while back: [WayBack] This week, a mini-demo of the mini-assembler found inside Woz’ monitor inside Apple II Integer Basic. CALL –151 F666G … – mos6502 – Google+

This week, a mini-demo of the mini-assembler found inside Woz’ monitor inside Apple II Integer Basic.
CALL –151
F666G
You can find reconstructed sources in Jeff Tranter’s repo here:
https://github.com/jefftranter/6502/tree/master/asm/Apple%5D%5BMonitor
where we see credits to Steve Wozniak and Allen Baum. But in this oral history it seems the assembler was Baum’s work:
“Baum: So it was brute force, very simple and fit into 256 bytes if you already had the 256-byte disassembler.”

Anyhow, one page of code – or two – is very impressive!

For more info, try searching for F666G! (We wonder at this memorable address – the Apple I price was $666.)

mkcert: valid HTTPS certificates for localhost (Windows/Mac/Linux) — a short blog post about it, by FiloSottile

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/12/21

Cool: [WayBack] Filippo Valsorda on Twitter: “mkcert: valid HTTPS certificates for localhost — a short blog post mkcert now that it’s almost done 🔒 “

Blog post: [WayBackmkcert: valid HTTPS certificates for localhost:

The web is moving to HTTPS, preventing network attackers from observing or injecting page contents. But HTTPS needs TLS certificates, and while deployment is increasingly a solved issue thanks to the ACME protocol and Let’s Encrypt, development still mostly ends up happening over HTTP because no one can get an…

Code: [WayBack] GitHub – FiloSottile/mkcert: A simple zero-config tool to make locally trusted development certificates with any names you’d like.

It is cross platform and works way better than good old Windows makecert (which is from the 2000’s era: [Archive.is] Public Key Infrastructure: Second European PKI Workshop: Research and … – David Chadwick, Greece) European PKI Workshop: Research and Applications (1st : 2004 : Samos Island – Google Books).

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/12/21

From a while back:

What would be good steps to find the cause of the below errors?

I get this error when running Microsoft Remote Desktop 10.2.3 or higher on MacOS High Sierra:

Database Creation Error

"An error occurred during persistent store migration.

[Domain: NSCocoaErrorDomain, Code: 134110]"

Stuck at @msremotedesktop 10.2.1 (that cannot add new users) on High Sierra because 10.2.2 keeps crashing, and both 10.2.3 and 10.2.4 cannot migrate: “An error occurred during persistent store migration.

Copy files on Mac OS X using drag-and-drop | alvinalexander.com: secret is to hold the Option key

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/12/14

The Finder pure keyboard way of file copy+paste is using CommandC at the source position followed by CtrlCommandV in the destination position (in the destination position,  CommandV will do only a cut+paste) as the paste/copy decision is determined in the final stage.

This is unlike Windows, where CtrlC means copy, CtrlX means cut, and CtrlV finishes the initial action to copy+paste or cut+paste

If you combine mouse dragging, on the Mac it becomes Optiondrag, whereas on Windows it still is Ctrldrag.

I think the Windows ones are more consistent, especially when looking at them in table form:

Action Windows Mac
Keyboard-Only Mouse-drag Keyboard-Only Mouse-drag
copy+paste CtrlC; CtrlV Ctrldrag CommandC; Ctrl+CommandV Optiondrag
cut+paste (or move) CtrlX; CtrlV drag CommandC; CommandV drag

(table with help of HTML Table generator – TablesGenerator.com)
