Re: She Lives!! Widget is running!

2005-11-11 Thread Chris Riedl
   There are a few documents here and there on the drive, though nothing as 
interesting as those that you found!  I realize now that due to the style 
and age of the drive, that the sounds are definitely normal.  I just forgot 
about the drives of this age that I heard in some friends' PC's long ago.

Cool! Glad you got her working! Previous owner leave any interesting 
documents? I got a profile a while back that was full of engineering 
drawings!


The widget is the most unique sounding drive I've ever heard. Mine runs 
very quietly actually, save the squeaka de squeak of the head voice coil. 
I notice it makes the mouse sound when it has to make a long seek, and a 
more regular hard disk sound for the short ones.

Hi Chris,

congratulation !


What are normal Widget sounds?

In general very loud, compared to the nowadays hf-drives :-)
...if an occasional chirp-like sound (rapid movement of R/W head 
motors?) is normal.
Yes, that's normal. I also have that sound on my drives. 
Approximately once to twice each 5 minutes, if I remember. But lasting 
only approx 0.5 seconds.
How long do things like the calculator, for instance, take to be 
loaded?
If you think of the Calculator from Mac OS running as emulation on a 
Lisa, the application will last less than 2 seconds and it appears on 
the screen, when loaded from the widget with my Lisa.
I've never had the pleasure of working with a Lisa before, so I don't 
know what to expect.
Treat the old Lady with respect and she will honour that - with respect 
:-)


greetings TOM from Bavaria
