Where can I find the Marathon Demo levels?


I woke up really wanting to play Blaspheme Quarantine – but the version of the level that was included in the three level demo version of Marathon and not the actual released version.

Where can I get it for Aleph One?

The search for the ambient music application


I once had a demo of an application that ran on a Apple Macintosh Quadra running System 7.x (I believe that it also ran on DOS/Win95), that was a glorious techni-colour media experience that played wonderfully smoothing ambient music, which you could alter slightly by clicking on various easter eggs hidden within the image on screen.

However, for the life of me, I can’t remember what it was called or where I can find it now…

Antiquated OS X


How does one get hold of an older version of OS X? There are dodgy google drive links available on eBay, from Russia (with love) for £3, or a shop in Fortune Town that offers pirated DVDs for £6. None of which are particularly good, or trustworthy, options.

The AppStore would be the best and safest option, but it is not cheap, and if you haven’t already purchased Mountain Lion when it was available, then it will not show up.

However, post-Snow Leopard, the OSes were more commonly released on USB sticks. Also, to install Lion or Mountain Lion, you need to be running Snow Leopard or Lion (respectively), so it seems that you need both the Snow Leopard DVD and then the binary of Mountain Lion – this is getting long winded and pricey…

µTorrent – Add New Torrent – folder history manipulation

CH340 on OS X


I wrote a long winded post that did not really answer the question, Can’t connect Cura to my Anet A8 on OSX 10.11.6, but rather catalogued my search for a solution to my own problem.

With respect to this post Should I clean up my answer?, I decided to delete my answer and keep the information here, in this article.
