BMOW Inventory Restock

The BMOW Wombat ADB-USB input converter and the Internal/External Drive Switcher for Apple IIc are now back in stock at the BMOW Store. Head there to get yours now.

Wombat what? The Wombat is a bidirectional ADB-to-USB and USB-to-ADB converter for keyboards and mice, and was developed by Steve Chamberlin here at Big Mess o’ Wires. Connect modern USB keyboards and mice to a classic ADB-based Macintosh, Apple IIgs, or NeXT machine. Or connect legacy ADB input hardware to a USB-based computer running Windows, OSX, or Linux. No special software or drivers are needed – just plug it in and go. For more details, please see the product description page.

The Internal/External Drive Switcher for Apple IIc is a convenience option for Floppy Emu owners with a IIc, and makes life easier when when emulating a 5.25 inch floppy disk drive for that computer. It provides a simple way to select whether the internal floppy drive or external Floppy Emu will appear as 5.25 inch Drive 1, which is the only bootable drive on the IIc. More details are here.

    @Dana I answered your same question by email on the 10th, but perhaps the response was lost. You don’t need a PayPal account. At the screen where it asks for a PayPal login, you can instead choose “Pay with Credit or Debit Card”. https://www.bigmessowires.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/sshot.png

    Thankyou! I was looking for a reply in the spam folder, but bor some reason it ended up in the deleted bin.(!?) Hotmail is crap sometimes. I have it now and will be ordering soon.
